The Gamer’s Hornpipe Sea Shanty Mini Album Idea.

Mini Album Idea:

The Gamer’s Hornpipe

This was a spur of the moment concept that is too stupid NOT to make a reality. A compilation 7 track mini Album of random game themes arranged as good old fashioned sea shanty’s. I was so inspired by the idiocy of it that I even came up with the track names and did a couple of demos. Then I was even more inspired and did a mockup of the album art. The “Shark Captain” is just a character I made up, when I sing in a pirate voice I usually use some kind of shark character for the visual. I was going to do all of it myself but I think this would be a fantastic opportunity to collaborate with this great community.


I came up with the ridiculously cheap puns for the track names first. 2 of which I made midi demos of. The ones that are in italic have a base and I would love for a collaborator to give input on them.


1: The Wreck of the Gangplank Galleon

(Gangplank Galleon maybe with lyrics? Instrumental would work as well)

2: Row Row Robotnik’s Boat

( Sonic The Hedgehog 2: Boss theme. I have a one minute demo of this I did, and I want to collaborate on making it longer. This one is instrumental)

3: Tifa Has Nice Buoys

(Tifa’s Theme: I have the demo and lyrics written, I just need more realistic instruments and arrangement input)

4: Theme From StarBob FoxPants

(Any Star Fox Track, I’ll let the arranger decide based on the title)

5: Blow the Rayman Down

(Any Rayman Track. Instrumental or Lyrics is acceptable)

6: The Great Mighty Poopdeck

(Sloprano From Conker’s Bad Fur Day. I may write/Collaborate with the lyrics, I have some ideas )

7: Call of Booty: Chicken of the Sea

(Any Call of Duty Track. Instrumental or Lyrics is Acceptable)

  • Arrangers/Remixers to conceptualize and complete remixes. This is where the bulk of the work will be. Anybody who would like to take part is welcome. 

  • Performers who are experienced with any type of instrument and have a high-quality recording setup. Ideally instruments associated with sea shantys. Hornpipe, Accordion etc.

  • Sound Designers/Audio Support/Mixing/Mastering interested in mastering and sound design for the project. also to provide support or collaborate with remixers who are new or inexperienced at mixing.

  • Artwork: I’ll draw the art myself but if anyone wants to collaborate on coloring and effects and even have ideas, let me know.

  • A Co-Organizer because I never have started an album project here before. So I need someone to help with deadlines, organizing everything, and generally putting it all together.

If you're interested in contributing to one or more of the above areas, please post here, or DM me.



Genre Guidelines

The Genre here is Sea Shantys! Specifically old Sailor tunes or folksy pirate music. Some tracks I want to have lyrics to, and I can provide the vocal/pirate voice for that. I have one set of lyrics I wrote myself but the rest of the lyrical ones I give full permission to write and get creative. Minamalist songs (with one are 2 instruments) are perfectly fine too. A lot of these songs did have that.


Shanty Examples:




Deadlines will be handled on a case-by-case basis but IDEALLY I’d love to actually get this done and released by Septemer 19th which is Talk Like a Pirate day.


That’s really it. Maybe I can spark some insanity amongst the OCremix community and get some old school sailing vibes flowing. Batten down the sheet music, we’re gonna need a bigger note!
