Title: Missing remix--Riku, you there?
Post by: CyAm on November 25, 2004, 01:44:14 am
Weird question--I composed a remix of the Utwig music some time ago, and then I went back to school and didn't have any time to devote to remixing any more.  Well, I came back and took a look at the website (Great job, btw--Especially glad to see a Mac version, since I'm doing all my work now in OSX) to see what was up.

My remix doesn't seem to be mentioned anywhere.  Please understand that this is okay with me--I mean, it was a volunteer work, and you guys aren't under any obligation to use it.  I am curious however--If you guys aren't using it because you didn't want it, or because it wasn't good enough, or because it didn't fit in thematically with the rest of the songs, that's fine.  But if you aren't using it because something happened to the file and you couldn't contact me, or something like that, then let me know and I'll provide you with a replacement.

In addition, I'd still be interested in composing remixes, and possibly original music, if there's anything left.  You guys may want to keep it entirely within the Precursors, which is fine with me--but if not, please let me know.

Riku is not very available for the time being (he's busy siring children), but I can speak for the entire Precursors team (yeah, all four of us) when I say that you are always welcome to compose remixes. Our policy is pretty simple: we try to cover all of the original songs, but if someone else makes a remix that surpasses it in quality, we'll choose that one to go in the main pack, with our remix released as a bonus track. If, on the other hand, we find that the "outside" version doesn't beat "our" version, it will (probably) go into the bonus stack.

As for your Utwig remix, I haven't heard it. Riku probably forgot to mention it, or he mentioned it and I forgot. In any case: as you may have noticed, the remixes are released in separate "packs". The pack containing the Utwig hasn't been released yet, hence the lack of any mention on the website.

We do have an Utwig remix that seems to be uncredited, although I'm sure someone in the team knows who made it. ;) If you want to discuss this in more detail, I'd recommend emailing me (use the email-link on this page: ).
