OCR01542 - *YES* Super Mario World & Final Fantasy 6 'Koopa vs. Kefka'

Recommended Posts

Hey,

This is a track I did for the OUS "Bad Dudes" EP ( http://www.oneupstudios.com/BD/ ) that nobody downloaded. The theme of the project was boss, villain, and other generally evil tunes, so I did a medley of "Sub-castle" from SMW and my favorite excerpt from "Dancing Mad." I wasn't planning on doing a track for the project at first, but changed my mind at the last minute and pounded this out in about 8 straight hours the day before the deadline. I didn't really have OCR in mind when I made it though, so I decided to have a little fun and experiment a little with multitracking and punching in. So who knows, this might be my first rejection. In any case, I had fun making this, and I hope you guys like it. Thanks again to Mustin for doing the production.

Enjoy, fgts.

http://snesmusic.org/v2/download.php?spcNow=ff6 - "Dancing Mad" (part 3, 1:23-in) [ff6-314c.spc]

I thought this was impressively played, especially the intro and outro runs. The arrangement could have been more interpretive, as far as the standards here go. Still, a good job adapting the "Sub Castle BGM" to solo piano including the different supporting writing, though I was disappointed to not hear more going on with the supporting writing here in an expansive sense.

Good segue to the "Dancing Mad" usage on organ at 2:01, though I disappointed at how straightforward that was. What was once an organ in the SPC is now handled by a better organ, but the writing was practically the same. Nonetheless, the piano part continued on arranging the SMW material nicely before retaking center stage with the source melody at 2:43 and closing with those ridiculous(ly good) runs at 3:20.

Absolutely solid production as well from Mustin, and you know I was bitching about that quick job done on the original version of Nayru's Love, so this is a far cry from that. Conservative arrangement from David, but well handled and skillfully performed. Sans the organ, can you play this one blindfolded too, fgt?

YES

Personally, I would've liked the bass of the organ to be much louder to really give it that extra kick.

It's played well, good combination of both themes. I remember listening to this one on Bad Dudes and not recognising the Kefka part. But now that I know it's actually Dancing Mad Part 3, it fits better.

Pretty good work, people will enjoy this.

YES
