Are you ready for the second entry in Sounds Alike? Some of you certainly have seen this coming, but here’s…
Touhou X5 – Lunatic Stage 2 ~ Invisible Zero Virus
I think I’ve done this 2 or 3 times before, but it just had to come back one more time for Sounds Alike. Zero Virus Stage 2 (Mega Man X5) meets Lunatic Eyes ~ Invisible Full Moon (Touhou 8: Imperishable Night).
A few days later than usual (as announced), but now it’s time to start a new project I’d like to call Sounds Alike. I even made a little logo for it:
I had this idea in my head, but the way it turned out was more a coincidence. the idea was having two notes that form an ‘=’ (equals) sign. That these notes would form some sort of ‘S’ as well is a nice bonus. You know, like Sounds Alike or DJ the S. I’ve never been good at these graphical things, so I’m happy that it turned out like this~
Now, what is this new project about? Nothing more (or less) than mixing together songs from different franchises that sound alike. It’s good enough if there’s just one part that sounds very similar, but we’ll have songs here that are similar entirely. Or even almost the same. You get the point…and you also understand that I might need to stretch that philosophy a bit if we want to get a decent amount of songs out of this. BTW, if you know of any such songs, please: suggest away. Although I have the songs for Vol.1 in my head already, I could use some more ideas if we want to go further than that.
But enough talk, let’s get this thing started with song number one. I present to you:
Ace Attorney 52 – Cheetah’d
I think you know what’s happening already, as this seems to be a rather popular thing to do: mixing Cornered from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney with the Cheetahmen Theme from that infamous game collection Action 52. Let’s hear it:
That should get this party started. I know I told you to suggest away, but of course, I already have some songs on my mind that I don’t want to reveal yet. I’ll give you this hint though: I already did most of these combinations a good while ago (however, most of these songs are already rather old and the new ones aren’t going to be remakes). But if you find some similar songs, simply suggest them. If I already have it on my list, it just means you don’t have to wait too long for it to happen!
With that said, I’ll see you in two weeks with the next song~
I’ll be honest with you: I have no idea how to start this post. So let’s just skip the intro, you probably already know what this is about anyway!
The newest song Divine Rhtyhm was a rather spontaneous idea – like, a sudden inspiration. I felt I should make a(nother) remix of Divine Identity (Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 2). That I ended up mixing it with Stone Tower Temple (The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask) just came naturally.
I tend to follow these flashes of insight as such songs usually turn out pretty well. Is this the case this time as well? Let’s find out:
Also check out the video if you like. If you want to comment, comments on the YouTube video are preferred:
The song may be a bit rough around the edges, but there’s always the possibility of a Best of edit on the album I release at the end of the year. I think I never really mention that anywhere.
Also, did any of you notice that the website was down some days ago? An update for a plug-in broke something and I had to use a backup of the website. Afterwards the update went without problems, guess it was just bad timing with regular maintenance and such. Sorry for any inconvenience this should have caused!
So, what now? There’s a new project idea I wanted to work on, I call it Sounds Alike for now. I’ll give you some updates in 2 weeks – although it might be on Monday/Tuesday this time. Just so you know!
