Summer Keys

posted in MnP104 on Aug 05, 2019
This was an excellent pick and a very summery vibe! At the same time, it took me a while to come up with something that, I hope, is decent enough!

I couldn't think of much to change within the song's structure, so I went with a reinstrumentation and an (attempt at) an environmental aesthetic change in a couple of parts.

With that said, I hope you enjoy, and thank you for listening!

This was definitely a good choice and an intriguing song to work with (it was my first time ever hearing it, as well!) Actually, one reason it was so intriguing is that I *instantly* thought of one particular stage in a game that is a galaxy away from this one in many ways, so I based my synth choices on that!

With that said, thank you for listening, and I hope you enjoy it!

By Your Powers Combined

This was an excellent pick: I had not even heard of this game until now!

This song was very enjoyable to listen to. So, I just decided to go all-in on the 80's theme it has. In addition, I tried to select some synths that corresponded to each element. Hopefully, they'll evoke that atmosphere and imagery! :)

As for the title... well, upon seeing the title of the game, I *instantly* thought of *that* environmentalist cartoon (loved watching it then, still do) from the 90's. :D

That's about it. I do hope you enjoy, and thank you for listening!

[BONUS] Operation: Winter Cheer

I've really enjoyed the music from the Advance Wars games for quite a while, but the discovery of this song was quite recent (just this year, actually). From the first few notes, I loved the wintery / Christmas-like feeling it had, so I knew I wanted to try my hand at remixing it!

My overall goal here was to bring out and emphasize that Christmas / holiday feel that the song had (hence, the name of the remix), so I'm hoping I succeeded at doing that! As with Wintery Nostalgia, I decided to utilize my orchestral libraries (it's actually turning into a bit of a tradition for me to use them for a remix around this time of year!) I also expanded upon certain parts, and used the sleigh bells for the backing percussion.

With that said, I hope you enjoy this remix, and thank you for listening!

Well, here it is - my first PRC entry! I've wanted to enter for a while, and I thought why not start here (and, of course, I haven't played this Castlevania game either... I've mostly played the DS entries)!

So, the title's mostly just a play on the original song title, but I did try to create a dark atmosphere with this one. Also, this is the fourth time I've tried this particular genre; perhaps the fourth time is almost(-ish) the charm(-ish)? I did experiment with a bit of orchestral and synth together, so I'm hoping that it turned out okay.

That's about it. Thank you for listening, and I hope you enjoy!

Keep Moving Forward

Hey everyone! Unlike with my last entry, I *have* played this game (once...), but I remember this stage! So, that's an improvement... right?

Anyway, listening to the original, you certainly get a feeling of "you're almost there, keep going!" So, my main goal here was to draw out that feeling; for that, I used some synths I normally don't get to use to add some more power to the mix. Hopefully, I accomplished that goal!

Thank you for listening, and I hope you enjoy!

It's been a little while! I've never actually played Super Castlevania IV (I know... sorry...), but I've
enjoyed the music of the series for some time now. So, with this one, I wanted to see what it'd be like if I slowed it down and emphasized the atmosphere. Some additions have been made here and there, I've added an intro and attempted an ending, and I changed the drums; otherwise, everything's as it was in the original. With that, thanks for listening, and have a Happy Halloween!

This is my favorite level in the game, and I really wanted to take a trip back to the era of Banjo-Kazooie! Thanks for listening, and I hope you enjoy it!
