PRC98: Time is a Hylian's Virtue (Zelda: Oracle of Ages)

Recommended Posts

The mixing stage has come to a close, and now it's time to do the voting. Here's what you need to do -

  1. Sign up there if you haven't done so already.
  2. Select which of the two mixes you prefer (obviously the contenders themselves can take a break from voting this week).
  3. Write a reasoning to elaborate on your decision.
  4. Click "submit vote" and have a happy French Independance Day... providing you didn't miss out last Saturday?

You have until Thursday, July 19th at 4:59AM EST to vote. The winner gets to choose the source material for PRC99!

The People's Remix Competition 98

PRCv4-20

Hello everyone and welcome to the People's Remix Competition! PRC97's Pokemon-related contest had an amusing turnout as a result, and from all this we faced a first win from Hylian Lemon who came forth with something rhapsodic in order to take the prize.

We are still with the Gameboy in this PRC, and we're going from one popular game franchise to another as well. I bet 50 rupees that we'll get four or more entries on this one; what do you think?

I wasn't really expecting to win that... o.O

Anyway, my song choice for the next competition is Crescent Island from The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages. I've made this decision for a few different reasons:

1. I think people could come up with some fun remixes of this.

2. Nobody gives the Oracles the attention they deserve, even though it's fricking Zelda we're talking about here.

3. Some other third thing.

Now tell those slaves to get cracking.

Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages - Crescent Moon Island

GBS (track 4) | MIDI | MP3

I think we faced enough weirdness when it comes to Zelda coverage through The Music of My Groin, so I'm hoping this compo will go by pretty "normally"... or so I think. Come on, it's Zelda; what do we expect?

GOOD LUCK!

Upon winning, one word crossed my mind: OMGWTFARETHESEPEOPLETHINKING.

I hope people enjoy working on this song. Oracle of Ages is very close to my heart. [/cheese]

Everyone says OMG, Oracle of Ages was better than Oracle of Seasons. I felt much more accomplished when I finished Seasons though. All of the bosses in Ages were pansies, and on the whole I found Seasons to have better music.

Oh well, I suppose I should get to mixing eh?

Seasons does have Tarm Ruins on its side...but I see the two games as generally equal music-wise. As a whole, I prefer Ages because of its superior storyline and puzzles, but Seasons definitely made me feel more accomplished, if only because of that stupid Onox.

Stupid Onox.

Ahaha, I don't want to turn this into a discussion thread, though. To get back on topic...

I can make a bonus mix, right? I can't help myself...

Ugh... I guess I'm just really good at those 'gameboy Zelda-esque' puzzles. I found almost no roadblocks throughout the whole of Ages, save for the level 8 boss who was more annoying than hard.

Yes, Onox was definitely a beast. I have yet to beat him with the cursed ring, which is something I can't say for anything in OoA.

Anyway, back to the music and such: I would have preferred the other Crescent Island theme, sadly. Oh well, I have a WIP as of right now.

Man, I've got no inspiration from this one so far. I guess it would help if I had played the game, but my last Zelda game was LttP (3d zelda never really appealed to me for whatever reason). Hopefully something will come to me eventually.

Yes you can :D Sometimes I do that to help encourage some source tunes I picked in the past (and by sometimes, I mean only twice, lol).

Yeah I'm kinda signing in here for the first time, I saw this thread yesterday, and after listening to the song a few times I've found a pretty amazing way to arrange it, so I guess I'll be joining this contest =P

Newcomers are always welcomed. It's always good to hear a new style in this competition, outside from the regulars.

Good luck!

Ooh I forgot to ask, are you allowed to post a mix you're planning to use for the contest in the WIP-forum?

Hmm, I was actually under the impression that you could. I think the qualitative comments rule is to prevent people from posting "mix X is better than the rest" etc. in this thread until voting is complete so it doesn't influence other voters.

You're allowed to post a mix in the thread, to show people what they're up against, but no one is supposed to comment on it's quality.

I don't know about putting things in the WIP forum though.

Well in that case it really depends on what you mean by 'commenting on it's quality', since what I'm really looking for is objective feedback in the vein of " You should tone down the reverb" or " That transition could be a bit smoother", not necessarily for comments like " I love the drum sequencing".

But anyway, since it seems like the question in my previous post hasn't been asked before, I guess it's customary for you guys not to post your submissions in the WIP-forum for feedback, so I'll abide by that for now, at least until anyone else clears this up.

Well I haven't seen anyone use the WIP forum in the past. Generally, people work on the mixes for PRC and plop them in the thread when they're done, and once the contest is over they could improve on it for the future if they want.

By that, I wouldn't advise using the WIP forums for seeking for feedback on your work, though there's nothing wrong with sending private messages to people who could help you out or contacting them over AIM or MSN or whatever.

As far as I know, people have used the WIP forums to post their wip's and get feedback. Posting the song here is forbidden to keep things clean and fair, but if you think you need help, you can post it in the wip forums, as far as I remember this isn't against the rules.

Good luck.

You can either email the track to the submissions email on the first post, or you can upload it like a regular entry and I'll take care of the rest.

I posted my mix in the ThaSauce thread, so you can have a listen if you want (I think?). If I did anything wrong ( like yapping too long about how the mix came to be) I'm sorry, it's my first time joining the contest. =P
