Tetris Attack Album


This was a great game I played with my wife when we first got married nearly 20 years ago.  The original album project was set up at that time and I had accepted 3 songs.  The original thread is still around and there was plenty of interest at that time.  The songs I worked on I did a lot of it when I was sent to Louisiana for Hurricane Katrina relief (I built/maintained the supporting software for various gov't agencies, like power, rebuilding roofs, etc).  It was here that I had a lot of time (no internet, very little power except through the RV as there were no hotels) and being alone at night I just wrote music (3 songs).  In any case, I loved these songs and I wanted to put them towards the album - it was abandoned so I decided to start a new one.  I'm looking for people interested and will ask to move this to the album thread if I get enough interest.

I'm also thinking of possibly doing more puzzle game albums depending on how this one turns out.

I plan on programming the website - though I may recruit some highschoolers/college students (friend's kids) looking for experience to add to their resume.

Positions Recruiting:

  • Remixers / Musicians
  • Art
  • Co-director: someone who has led albums before who can help me organize this (tell me what I need to do, what I'm missing, etc).


Each song has a core instrument/style of play to represent the character and its critical/panic.

For example, Raphael the Raven (Lunar) stage and the panic/critical stage would both be a violin.  The normal stage would be playful violin but the panic/critical would be a horror violin style.

The actual genre of music could be anything as long as the normal stage has a positive vibe and the panic stage has an aggressive/panicked vibe.

I'll clearly add a list of each instrument corresponding to each character/stage below - though this is currently in progress.

I'll be making updates to the main thread as I add instruments.  If you're a remixer who takes a song, feel free to suggest an instrument for that stage if it's not already assigned.
