Tim Follin: Dirge for the Follin - Musician Recruitment

Recommended Posts

Greetings all, pojo here...aka Mike.

Is this project still alive? I've been working on a guitar based version of the title theme to Solstice now for the past couple weeks and I just stumbled across this. Perhaps if it goes over good enough it would make a good addition.

It's kind of quiet, but it's still going on, as far as I know. Just PM Larry with what you've got. I'm sure he'll be able to tell you more.

[*]2. Xoc - Magic Johnson's Fast Break & Super Off-Road - complete, but private until release by Jason's request

This actually got released on Xoc's MAGFEST 7 MIX album, so it's no longer really private.

I think part of the delay may be my fault, actually. I had a very ambitious track that I got stuck on... and then 2009 hit and I've been utterly swamped with work, so I've had very little time for music.

Despite my best efforts I couldn't get my track to a place where I was happy with it, so over the holidays here I scrapped it and started over... and thankfully I'm really liking what's happening this time around. I'm gonna do my best to crank it out fast, but I also have 4 clients who need their projects finished by Jan 1st, so I dunno if it'll be ready in time for MAGFest or not.

Rather odd, usually I'm the first person to finish a track for anything. But ol' Follin's work is difficult to improve upon, and 2009's been a blur. So, my apologies for my slowness here, I'm doing my part to get my track finished, so the project can come to completion.

I wouldn't blame you. I was one of the people who started the project and I've mostly lost sight of it for a couple of years. I still need to meet with Larry and see what I can do. I know he wants me to make the website, but I don't know if I'll be able to spend much time on that.

So this is still going, riiiiight?

Well, take your time - when I finish the junk that I'm doing right now (aka not really junk) I'm going to get in on this.

Mark my words, LT.

I love Tim Follins work, can I do something for this? I don't know when it would be but i'm very interested, i've wanted to remix silver surfer music for a while.

If this project is still open by next year, I want to throw in my own arrangement, or collab with someone willing to do an arrangement. I'm thinking of covering some Plok tunes.

Alright, it's on then. I'm definitely doing his title track for "Time Trax" on the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive, even though it's unreleased I believe this is one of his most incredible efforts. Masterful usage of the technology of his day.

I don't have anything up on here yet but if you take a look at my portfolio it will give you an idea of my capabilities. I will try to make this remix a fitting homage to Tim Follin's work.

I want to do a piano-based medley of tunes from Plok. I can create the arrangement, but can't perform the piano part live. I may be studying music, but I'm not nearly that advanced yet. If anyone is willing to help me out here, that'd be excellent.

As a big fan of Follin, I'd love to try my hand at arranging something of his. It would most likely be one of his NES tunes OR his Ghouls 'N Ghosts C64 work (though there's already a mix for that). Not sure which game yet, I'll have to re-listen through his discography and mess with some ideas.

I'm surprised this hasn't gotten more activity. Not enough Follin love here; the man was (is) a genius! Shame his vgm career ended like that.
