Touhoid Prime

Not quite what I announced last week, but…here’s a little something I felt like doing. Maybe some of you remember my crossover song Super Touhoid – Lower Gensokyo? If not, here it is:

So, basically, I wanted to give it a little upgrade. There are still some parts that I might change until the final release, but this should give you a very good idea how Touhoid Prime – Former Hell of Blazing Fires sounds. It doesn’t sound as menacing as Lower Gensokyo, especially the Nuclear Fusion parts sound more like “welcome home”. Naturally, since the former hell of blazing fires IS pretty much Okuu’s place anyway. But it has changed…

 

This song wasn’t planned for now, after all both songs (Lower Norfair and Nuclear Fusion) were featured in last week’s upload for the fire element. What I actually had in mind since then was actually quite different. I wanted to make a remix of Torri’s theme (Monochromatic Color) from the RPG Conception II. The song has a nice beat to it, but it can’t really be compared to other songs I usually do. Why do I want to make a remix then? Let’s say personal reasons, k? Gotta make it…more interesting~

As of now, I’m not done sequencing the song, but close. Since there isn’t much, I’ll have to arrange it quite a bit and maybe throw in some other stuff as usual. I’ll likely increase the tempo, 124bpm is a bit slow for my standards (the Touhoid Prime song above has 190bpm…). I’m curious how this will turn out in the end! While the game just sounds wrong most of the time (it’s intentionally very suggestive), it has an amazing soundtrack, especially some great battle themes, maybe I’ll give them a shot one day too!

Elemental Disciples vs The 4 Elemental Fiends

Long title…is long!

Inspired by the Disciple Months, this song challenges Final Fantasy IV’s 4 Lords of the Elements and sends in one Disciple per element (with an additional newcomer in fire) to battle. Will the Disciples remain victorious in this epic battle?

I said last week that I wanted to polish the song a bit and indeed, I changed a few elements of the song slightly, but I didn’t (wasn’t able to) really remaster it as announced. In fact, my headphones broke during that process which didn’t help at all. I hope you can still enjoy this song which just seems to be crowded with so much stuff!

As usual you’ll find the song, the download and the video below. Want to show your appreciation? Donate!

And here’s the video:

Next I have something in mind that you won’t expect. Never. It will also be quite the arrangement if I want to make it sound like my usual stuff. I have no idea if that will even work out so maybe I shouldn’t even announce it like that…but this is only a footnote anyway! Want a hint? Have at you: “Monochrome”. That’s all you get, till next time~

Disciples in progress

Have a Disciple song work in progress! With a really long name! “Elemental Disciples vs the 4 Elemental Fiends” is a mix of some elements from the Disciple songs Earth, Water, Wind and Fire (with a little extra in fire) and Dreadful Battle, the battle theme of the 4 Lords of the Elements (or Fiends of the Elements) from Final Fantasy IV and of course Fighting of the Spirit (Tales of Phantasia/Symphonia). Scarmiglione vs Goron Link (Earth), Cagnazzo vs Frog (Water), Barbarizia vs Tornado Man (Wind) and Rubicante vs┬áSamus and Okuu (Fire)!

Why work in progress? There’s still some things I want to try, making everything sound clearer and louder at the same time. Mixing stuff basically, something I’m still not good at…I’ll try, but I have no idea if I can pull that off, so here you go, listen to it:

Elemental Disciples vs the 4 Elemental Fiends

Let me summarize the current standing of the Touhou voting for you:

Bad Apple and Suwa Foughten Field both have 11 votes and are first place, 3rd is Eternal Shrine Maiden with 8 votes. Strawberry Crisis and The Shining Needle Castle Sinking in the Air are both in a good position with 6 votes as well. But there are still not enough votes by FAR to finish that voting.

Technoprano

Now before anything, let me remind you of that peculiar voting we’re still having. Quite a few entries by now, slowly it starts to get interesting!

Now that my creative crisis seems to be over (for now~), here’s a song that came out of nowhere: Technoprano! A remix of Sloprano from Conker’s Bad Fur Day. The Great Mighty Poo is quite amused. Gotta thank VanishingSVST and Mark Madcow for giving me inspiration and motivation to get back to working on stuff. Thanks!

Speaking of VanishingSVST, check out that awesome new icon made by him:

New Joe Icon - June 5, 2014I love it! But back to the song~

And here’s the video:

I haven’t really found the motivation to finish this site which is rather lame, but there’s just so much stuff happening at the moment. But at least I finished the Touhou section today!

Creative crisis

The French would probably say “rien ne va plus”. And although the context is usually quite a different one, I’d say this pretty much explains things.

There are quite a few songs in progress, but nothing worth mentioning. I’m still looking for that right sound, trying lots of mixing stuff and wondering why I’m not even half as creative as other musicians. Pah. “Creative crisis” is the only thing that comes to mind right now. I wonder when (and if) I can ever make something good again…

Meanwhile, you can still vote for the Touhou songs, I know I say that a lot lately, but who knows when the voting will end?

Cheaters!

Why, you…! Obviously there was some unfair actions during the voting which caused the last ranked Strawberry Crisis!! to be first place within a day. I knew it was possible and I’m pretty sure it happened during the last voting as well (although not as extreme), but…’t is a sad day for mankind! XO

SO, I had to take action! All votes have been reset and from now on only logged users will be able to vote. ONCE.

Let us try again then! Remember that you can vote only once, but for up to three themes!

We like Ike!

Ike in Smash Bros.
Radiant Dawn Ike in Smash Bros!

I see this as a birthday present from Nintendo. For me, Ike was always a very inspiring character and his Radiant Dawn outfit makes him look even more badass than ever before. To celebrate this, here’s a little fun mix including quite a few FE tunes which will show who’s the better FE Smash Bro!

I still wonder if Chrom will make it into Smash Bros. though. I was sure they would include him or Lucina. I wonder if that is the case?

Also, don’t forget to vote in the Touhou poll!
