Death by Metroid

posted in RWS0306 on Jun 16, 2015
I decided to a do a remix of the main theme from Metroid for the NES.

I wanted to make something really dark and chill, sort of in the style of Baths. Thanks to Garpocalypse for the incredible mix and also for his suggestions, which really took this track to the next level.

Tree Fort in the Clouds

My sources are "Tree Fort Basement" and "Party in the Clouds" from "Adventure Time - Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage!!"

I wanted to make this in the style of Anamanigucci, so chiptune + rock essentially.

Jorito was a great help and gave me lots of feedback on the arrangement. Unfortunately, I ended up having to mix everything today, so I didn't get any feedback on that.

Thanks again to Jorito, and I hope you enjoy!

I had a ton of work these past two weeks. And then I got sick. So I made this arrangement in about 3 or 4 hours. This was on Friday. I had pretty much accepted that this remix would be terrible.

Then Ivan stepped in. He mixed it and added a bunch of awesome noise filters and stuff. And now I'm really happy with it. He did a phenomenal job and really brought his A game to the mixing and I'm super thankful to have had this chance to work with him. Thanks Ivan!

Shuffle or Die

Soooooo funny story with this one: I got this song mixed up with the People's Remixing Competition song, and by the time I realized my mistake, I could only spare a couple more hours to work on this song, so I couldn't come up with another arrangement.

So forgive me if this is not very "Meat and Potatoesy." I don't think it strays too far from the source melodically, but I did change the vibe from a bluesy shuffle, to a more Hotline Miami type straight/shuffle and I also changed some of the instrumentation to suit that.

Again, I know this isn't the best contender for this compo, but I would really like some feedback on this remix, as I don't write many pieces in this genre.

I wasn't really sure how I was going to approach this song at the beginning, but I ended up with something that is a little reminiscent of the music in FTL. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Some of the transitions are a little rough.

*Bonus Mix* The First Flame

For this I wanted to try to blend the piano with some glitchy, dark sounding drums, while still trying to keep the sad mellow vibe. I tried to keep the kick really soft, sort of like a heartbeat.

I think it turned out alright, even though the overall mix is a bit too bright sounding then what I envisioned. If anyone has any ideas about what I could do about that, that would be much appreciated.

Go Indigo!

I've been listening to a lot of Tycho lately, so I wanted to try something in that style for this remix. This is my first time submitting to this and, unfortunately, I only found out about this compo a couple days ago, so I didn't have too much time with this. I loved Majora's Mask growing up though, so I really wanted to contribute to this.

There's this really cool percussion going on in the source tune and I love the little fills that the harp does, so I tried to base this remix off of that, and then bring in the main melody.
