Sy’s Tunage

Sy’s Tunage: Music For Nobody
Bonus Stage/Dark Queen (Length 1:24)
Game: Battletoads in Battlemaniacs (SNES)
Sy Notes: This was done as a much more mellowed out approach. Maybe as an underwater version of the fight, or a water bonus stage. Added in an 8-bit part as it felt like it fit. Felt bubbly.

Ragnarok Canyon (Length 4:23)
Game: Battletoads in Battlemaniacs (SNES)
Sy Notes: I kept the distortion guitar and general theme, but added some 8-bit stuff. I liked the blend of styles, trying to make it a bit more fantasy feeling I guess.

The Dark Tower (Length 3:03)
Game: Battletoads in Battlemaniacs (SNES)
Sy Notes: As the last track to do, I wanted to try a Violin focused medley for this faster paced track.

Forest of Mystery (Length 2:03)
Game: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES)
Sy Notes: I always liked this version of the Lost Woods more than the one later found in Ocarina. The one there may be more catchy, but I always found that this one better captured the tone of playful wonder. So I tried my hand at doing the same with this mix.

Kakariko Village (Length 3:14)
Game: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES)
Sy Notes: A calm track. Was experimenting with how soothing a track I could make. This paved the way for the Peaceful Days mix.

Auria, City of Gold (Length 2:12)
Game: Breath of Fire (SNES)
Sy Notes: I thought it was criminal that there were hardly any remixes of BoF stuff. So I tried making this. This one has me actually playing both of the piano. Also, apparently you can hear my shit eating grin while I’m playing.

Decadence of God (Length 3:14)
Game: Breath of Fire II (SNES)
Sy Notes: I wanted to try my hand at one of those old holy churchy type themes with the choir sound and all. This was my attempt.

Peaceful Days (Length 2:30)
Game: Chrono Trigger (SNES)
Sy Notes: This, U.N Owen, and Auria are probably the three tracks I put the most effort in. I really tried to capture that tranquil feeling of a pleasant sunny day in this track. I really like how this one turned out. Maybe you will to.

Flight of the Zinger (Length 3:44)
Game: Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest
Sy Notes: This was purely done as a sort of piano practice for me. The piano is played by me to accompany the few other instruments. I made this one to get used to piano in preparation for making the Auria mix.

U.N. Owen Was Her (Length 2:28)
Game: Embodiment of Scarlet Devil
Sy Notes: I don’t actually know what caused me to do this one. I was experimenting with FamiSynth, and after making a couple tracks solely with it, I wanted to try something where an 8bit instrument was just one part of a bigger set. So I made this.

Rocket 8bit Corner (Length 1:14)
Game: Pokemon Red/Blue Version
Sy Notes: The aforementioned FamiSynth experiments resulted in me trying to make this mix. I just tried to replicate it best I could.

8bit Final Race (Length 1:39)
Game: Top Gear
Sy Notes: After getting comfortable with it, I tried making a more complicated track. Thus, we have this mix.
