CONFIRMED: OC ReMixer Reuben Kee, 23, killed in boating accident (1984-2007)


Recommended Posts

I remember the couple of ff7 compositions he posted in the wip forum and said he didn't want to submit them because they were too long. As I listened to them I remember thinking that he was one of my favorite composers and deserved to have them up on the site despite the fact that they were both 8+ minutes long. I really wish I still had those songs too; after a couple HD crashes I've completely lost both of them.

Otherwise, every other song he has up on here, namely Ascension to Cosmo Canyon, are incredibly beautiful and thought provoking.

You will be truly missed, Reuben.

Rest in Peace

I remember reading about this a year ago. Truly a sad event. What really makes me happy though is to see that OCR as a community reacts to things like this. A rare thing to witness in any community, let alone one on the internet. Very heartwarming. I guess music really connects people.

Although I've just registered, I've been using the site for years. I remember the news about his death, too. I have the songs Legend of the Snake, and Legend of the Snake 2: Snake vs. Dragon. He did some great work. I would really like to hear some more work from him. What are some other good songs he's done besides Ascension to Cosmo Canyon?

I'm sure everyone who has come in contact with what Reuben does weather it be his MUGEN characters or his music (both remixed and original), feels a loss as if they had known him personally.

I think it's because he puts so much effort and heart into the things he does. Until I heard of his death I never made the connection that the Reuben here was the same Reuben that created the Mugen characters but it makes sense. They are both outstanding and inspirational. Enough so, to make him a distinguished member in both communities. I am sure the same can be said about his other hobbies like dragonboating and activities he may have done in school and with his friends. I can only imagine the loss that is felt by the people who knew him personally.

I certainly dug his anime remixes more than his game music. I've recently been trying to listen to his experimental singles but with no luck since it looks like downloads are no longer available on his Pathos. Anyone know why? And does anyone know that song that plays while the user chooses links on the 3D piano on the Pathos?

Man, he would've been my age this year. From the looks of his bio, he seemed like such a dynamic person with high marks in potential. I definitely had alot of respect for him, especially for his music since I've always been a sucker for piano. He was one of my favorites.

God Blessings to his family.

Wow.. I just randomly saw this post on the front page. Even though I didn't know him at all it's still very sad. Ascension to Cosmo Canyon is among my very favorite ReMixes, or any song for that matter. I'm sure he would have gone on to do great things.

Almost two years, eh... I remember when this was on the front page - it's terribly sad.

I wasn't a forum member at the time, though (nor was I involved in the forums), so I didn't read the touching thread that coincided with the incident. I honestly haven't understood how connected the community is until now - I'm glad to be a part of it. While I couldn't say it before, he is a remixer that I give my deepest respect, condolences and prayers to.

God be with you, Reuben.

It's been almost 11 years.  And I still listen to Reuben Kee's "Once Upon a Lifestream".

 

This loss is immeasurable.  What Reuben did in his lifetime was already extraordinary--if he had survived this event, I have no doubt he would have become a name that would have lived throughout centuries.

 

Rest in peace, Reuben Kee.  You were magnificent.  And as long as I live, I will continue to share your magnificence.
