Original Remix Competition (ORC)
The ORC was started as a sister competition to PRC. It initially ran with the same rules, the only difference being that the contestants remixed an original piece made by a person on OCR. The first source tune was made by ReactorZ0 to start the competition. From there, whoever won the competition would choose an original tune he/she made to be the source for the next competition. Voting is done by the general public.

Sweet Contemplation. I nice calm song from me for a change. Sorry about some of the note cutoffs - it's an old MIDI and I don't have the proper programs to fix it. It's not too bad, though.
Enjoying some sweet contemplation during those sunny spring day and start ot mix!
Thanks to Gario for helping me keeping ocr running btw.
anyway good luck with november ORC
i chose a tune from a failed game project that was meant to be in midi format. i made my own soundbank for it though, which had to total at around 2 mb. it's just meant as a fun bonus, but if anyone can make good use of the original samples in his mix, that'd be pretty entertaining.
the tune has kind of a flying above the clouds and lazily munching away at rainbows feel to it. quite relaxed but still ridiculously saccharine.
the midi isn't perfect, the pitch automation was screwed up and i couldnt be arsed to reprogram it all perfectly.
With the assistance of ORC denizens I have chosen my source material: As promised it is a lullaby sequenced with Cakewalk in 1998, originally composed in 1996. In '98 my soundcard was the awesome Gravis Ultrasound which apparently had a much quieter vox patch - when I listen to this now the background chords are burying the melody. Oh well, I think ORC folks can do something with it... I think this was inspired by the lullaby at the end of SMB2, so it's certainly video gamey.
