Compo: MnP (Meat 'n Potatoes)

MIDI: http://compo.thasauce.net/files/materials/MnP98_VGMSasha.mid


Hey there! It's kind of funny - this'll be the second wintery / Christmas-y source I select in this competition. :D

It's been an interesting year! We started by going through a

strange zone in an equally strange world and then warped through many
more strange worlds (even a maniacal mansion), and, like clockwork in an RPG,
arrived in a forest of monsters. But, with our unbreakable
determination, evil has finally been vanquished! Now, as the season turns to
winter and snow falls, it's time to unwind and enjoy the holidays! :)

With that (attempt at a "story") said, I'd like to submit Sasha's theme from Advance Wars: Dual Strike as the
source for MnP round #98 in keeping with a kind-of wintery tradition. To the best of my
knowledge, this song has not been selected in any previous rounds or in the PRC.
You may wonder how a Wars game character's theme would
be wintery / Christmas-y, but give the song about 30 seconds (if the first
few notes don't convince you). Whether it's a cover or a slight reinterpretation / expansion, I'm
looking forward to seeing what you all come up with, and thanks!

The goal of Compo:MnP is to promote that "meat and potatoes" conservative approach to remixing: this includes the mood and composition of source tunes. It is up to the remixer to create their own personalization, or to simply give it a sound upgrade. Moreover, the compo is a great opportunity to hone your remixing skills and give video game music the respect that is due. SOME reinterpretation is recommended, but not required.

MnP Instructions/Guidelines

  1. Covers and Sound Upgrades are permitted.
  2. Most or all of the source notes must be present (but not necessarily in the exact same order), secondly the mood (energy, pacing, feelings being conveyed etc) should also be retained. For example, a source tune that is fast-paced and energetic that's remixed into a mellow/chill-out theme would be a hard sell.
  3. If you decide to do a genre swap (i.e. symphonic to techno), make sure that the conditions of #2 are met.
  4. Submissions must be at a maximum of 20mb (keeping in step with ThaSauce's file size max).
  5. Only 1 entry per participant. Previous winner cannot participate but can submit a BONUS entry.
  6. Please don't make any comments about people's entries - including your own - until the Voting process is concluded.  BONUS entries are exempt of this rule.
  7. All competitors and voters must adhere to the rules stated within: Competition Code and Conduct

- When picking a source tune, make sure it has a MIDI to make ppl's lives easier.
- In-game sound FX are permitted, so long as they don't comprise the whole track (i.e. replacing entire MIDI tracks with just sfx)

Guess this is gonna be a sort of after-X-mas thing.  But there's only 22 days to go, so it's probably a safe call.
