OCR03259 - Portal 2 "Motion Sickness"

Recommended Posts

Sounds great! When I first heard this in the Workshops, I agreed with Kristina that the lead was pretty meandering. Now I actually think that it is much less meandering (still a bit at 1:56 - 2:11, but not nearly as much) and instead evokes a feel of frantic dizziness.

The orignial song is definitely one of my favourote VGM pieces ever and it's really cool to hear such a solid remix of it. Sounds like a very neat upgrade of original. Sweet!

This is such a trippy song. Nice, though. I really don’t think the lead is meandering, even at its craziest points. It’s just a bit off-kilter. Or maybe I’m just off-kilter. There’s dissonance and a lot of tension to be found here, both rhythmic and melodic, but it all adds up to one insane track. I find it pretty difficult to properly apply this near-constant dissonance and tension, but you made it work. Somehow. Excellent work!

Wow is this a fun track!! I really, really enjoy the beat and progression here - it's unique, it's fun and I never knew what was coming next. But even better, this isn't just a bunch of haphazard sections; the whole song flows wonderfully as a cohesive unit, and the feel and musical choices are infectious. Bonus props for making a wind-down ending fit perfectly into the larger song.

A great, unique listen and way more enjoyable than I could have guessed!! Please, more like this!!

It's nice to hear one of my favorite tracks from P2 in such a new way! Fast-paced and energetic EDM is my favorite in the genre, and I especially enjoy the blips in the background. I think you did really well with a melody that wasn't too prevalent in the original; it doesn't get boring throughout the entire run. In this regard I think the shorter length actually helps you. Great job!

Portal was always one of those game series that had a strong musical identity for me, and I can still hear it underneath this ReMix even with the upgrade with a faster retro sounding EDM base, which is cool. I think what I mean by that is that I feel like this mix not only rearranges the source, but also builds and expands on it, making it the artists own while keeping it recognizable. These kinds of mixes are some of my favorites, where the balance between nostalgia (well, as much nostalgia as you can get from a game that really isn't old enough to be described as "nostalgic") and original direction hit just right and ultimately make a song better in my opinion. Great stuff, man!
