I’m really suprised I haven’t linked this yet!
OC ReMix is a wonderful little website where I found my inspiration. The website is filled with re-imaginings of video game music. They make the background music into actual music, and do it well! On top of that, all the music hosted there is free to download (which made it quite a large chunk of my collection). There are some really talented artists who dedicate their precious time to pay tribute to these games we’ve all loved.
The site has a large amount of variety, from Metal to Solo Piano (which I might add are absolutely beautiful pieces of work). Euro Techno to Hip-Hop. Electronica to plain Rock ‘n Roll. Orchestral to Big Band. OC ReMix exposes those talented artists who just love music and video games.
Someday I’ll be joining the OC ReMix artists but you don’t have to wait for me to check ’em out.
Oh, and I’ll probably be doing electronica with lots of piano. It just seems to work for me.
