Chronopolis: Music Inspired by Chrono Cross - History

prophetik music

Recommended Posts

@DragonAvenger has approached me about doing an english version of Radical Dreamers with me. i haven't heard anyone express serious interest in this song with a wip, so i'm going to pencil us in for this in the short term. nothing official yet since i don't have a wip yet =)

i also contacted Merrigan (from my Witcher 2 remix) about doing a track, and she's looking at tracks now, so i hope to announce another track for the slow CD soon!

I'm a little busy these days to do a full remix, but I'd love to contribute a guitar solo if someone needs one! 

Some examples of my shreds are here: 

Lead at 1:48

All of it

Lead at 3:20

Lead at 2:53

Lead at 2:02


If you're interested, message me through here or email me at micahblakeslee@gmail.com (I'll be more likely to see the email).

you know you want to do a track for the fast album... =)


Edit: I hope no one thinks about the Dragoon Fortress track, I might have an idea for that, which is more promising, perhaps I can do a rough WIP this week, before I have to do my RvK remix

80% of tracks are now claimed! @noTuX just hit me up with a great wip of Forest of Illusion, with a really cool vibe that reminded me of one of my first favorites from this site (hint: the remix number is double digits!). we're down to one slow track and three fast remaining!

i should note that while my goal is to have two equal discs, i'm happy to have one be longer or shorter than the other depending on song length. i'm not going to shovel some trash on there to meet an arbitrary track requirement.

heard a final for Forest of Illusion today, so as soon as @noTuX gets me a lossless, that one's done! also heard a badass jazz arrangement from @Wiesty that is gonna be a real standout collaborative performance on the slow album.

i also have WIPs promised from several people by the end of the month...looking forward to hearing it! my music pc is back in business after some issues with hard drives so i'm excited to get working again as well.

got a three-fire-emoji.jpg wav from @noTuX, so he's done! also sent a possible wip to @Tuberz McGee so we'll see if that turns into anything.

beyond that, we have four or five that are fairly close or waiting on a single recording. i haven't heard from a few people in some time though so barring anything happening there a track or two may become available - i'll post updates on that when it occurs.

Hello! I'm new here, I just discovered this project. I would like to collaborate with a fast musical theme. I still see available tracks.  Am I still on time?
(P.D: I do not speak English.) Sorry for my bad writing)

@Theophany has claimed Life ~ A Distant Promise! @avaris has also claimed Jellyfish Sea! i've also marked two big tracks as tentatively claimed (Scars of Time and Chronopolis). we're filling in the tracklist quickly =)

also, per reinhold's update, i've contacted members of Game-Art-HQ (of FFIX project fame!) to assist with artwork. so now we've got some people interested in doing art, and we now need a web designer at some point.

i'm starting a chrono cross remix project.

i've always wanted to get back to the game that got me into remixing, and for the past six months or so, i've found myself listening to this soundtrack again more heavily as i have gotten back into writing music again. mitsuda's work on this album is timeless - the unique sound he created for CC is so consistently represented in these tracks that it's always apparent when you hear a song from the soundtracks. notably, his use of the arpeggiated minor 9th chord comes back again and again and never fails to inspire and move me.

similar to the Link's Awakening project i directed, i'm interested in using a defined genre element for this project. ideally i'm thinking 20 tracks on a total of two discs - 10 fast/intense and 10 slow/languid. genre ideas for the first one would be faster rock, edm, or even intense film-style classical. genre ideas for the second would be chillstep, solo piano, groove, etc. the CC soundtrack combines some really fun and funky upbeat tracks with elements of mixed meter and ethnic instrumentation with some incredibly beautiful, more relaxed tunes that thrive on realistic articulation and great performances of solo instrumentation. i want to reflect both aspects of the game as clearly as possible. 

note that i have no problem with the same tune being on both discs - i would love two versions of the same tune as long as they're heavily different and unique takes on the theme, one faster and one slower. also please note that i'm interested in sticking with 10 tracks per disc - i'd like to not have 15 fast and 5 slow, for example, so when you note that you're interested in a track, please say which disc it might be on. if there's enough interest, i'll expand past 10 tracks/disc, but not until those ten are 'filled'.

here's a tracklist. note that i've marked some songs as being repeats, arranged versions of the original, or just noise tracks - i've taken them out. 67 original tracks minus 12 repeats/arranges leaves us with 55 possible tracks. i'm leaving weirder or non-melodic ones like Grief and Fortress of Ancient Dragons on here because, honestly, i'd love to hear a remix of grief done well =) i'd encourage you to pick tracks that aren't super popular, like Scars of Time and Frozen Flame, but of course would accept WiPs for those too. there's a lot of gems on this soundtrack that have never been remixed and i'd prefer to focus on them if possible.

to reserve a track, get me a WiP. all tracks are fair game until i've heard your vision realized. if i get a few of the same one, i'll determine which one we'll stick with. black is available, red is taken, green is done.

things i'll still need:

  • release mirrors, when the time comes
  • website design and hosting.
  • some artwork would be nice! CC has some incredible visuals that would be great to capture. alternatively, some screenshots from the game would be cool too.
  • i will look into a forum area we can work out of in order to be more organized, but ideally we'll use a private ocr forum section

in terms of expectations, please note that while i don't expect you to burn out a track in two weeks, i will not accept extended absences without you at least telling me what's going on. my goal for every project i work on is to discharge my obligations as quickly as possible, and i will expect that you're actively working on your track to get it completed within a reasonable amount of time. i personally have no issue filling in gaps where they appear so i can always pick up the slack where it appears. i've got two small children and limited time to work on music, but i'll make sure to do my best to be just as prompt and active in managing this as i am expecting you as a remixer to be in your writing. let's work together and create something really special.

disc 1: FROZEN (slow)
