OC ReMix presents Golden Sun: A World Reignited!

Contact: press@ocremix.org

FAIRFAX, VA... OverClocked ReMix today released its 74th free community arrangement album, Golden Sun: A World Reignited. Featuring 37 tracks from 42 musicians, A World Reignited pays tribute to Nintendo's classic Game Boy Advance RPGs Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age, and is led by first-time director Logan "TSori" Thomas. The album is available for free download at https://reignited.ocremix.org.

A World Reignited assembles a large lineup of musicians interpreting Motoi Sakuraba's scores in a variety of styles across 2 1/2 hours of creative arrangements. A World Reignited was made by fans, for fans, and is not affiliated with or endorsed by Camelot or Nintendo; all images, characters, and original compositions are copyright their respective owners.

With nearly 10 long years gone by since the last release from the Golden Sun franchise, A World Reignited allows fans of the series the opportunity to revisit and rekindle their memories exploring the world of Weyard through music with a heavy emphasis on live instruments.

"This story of discovery, exotic locales, forgotten histories, hidden motivations, heroism, and desperation was beautifully embodied in Motoi Sakuraba's incredible soundtrack," noted album director Logan Thomas in appealing to the original games. "Take a new journey from the slopes of Mount Aleph to the shores of the Karagol Sea, from the depths of Madra Catacombs to the tops of the monolithic elemental lighthouses."

The album's artwork -- a beautiful collage of the lighthouses of both GBA titles -- was designed by French illustrator Mikaël "Orioto" Aguirre, already well-known for his lush landscapes inspired by the Golden Sun series as well as other gaming classics.

"Every single person involved went above and beyond what was expected," Thomas added. "The quality of this album and the rapidity with which it has been completed is a direct result of the talent and unyielding dedication of everyone involved."
