Hey guys, I've never organized anything like this before, but I really feel like we can help someone out right now.

Well, I guess I should explain what's going on.

Those of you who pay attention to DoD might remember a Willow medley that I did last September titled "Unbridled Ambition". Well, I just got a message on myspace from someone I've never seen before. He wrote:

Hey, I was checking out Dwelling of Duels and came upon Unbridled Ambition and it has totally blown my mind. I have a long time online penpal type friend who played Willow on the NES a whole bunch as a wee lad, and has always lamented that it has never been given much attention in the remixing community. Long story short, his grandmother passed away recently and it's done a lot to cheer him up.

I was wondering if you would be up for handling some more Willow music in the same style; maybe a medley of all the tracks from the game. Christmas is rolling around, and every year I send him a CD, so having an orchestral/metal CD of the Willow soundtrack done proper would just warm his heart.

I dunno if you do commissions or not or if you're currently working on other projects, but I'd be willing to lay down about 50 dollars if you could make this happen- even if it takes a while past Christmas. It would mean a lot to him and I.

Email me at [deleted], since I don't use my Myspace at all.

Thanks for reading and considering!


Reading that actually really touched me. Unfortunately, I can't do the CD that he asked for. I'm in the middle of two big projects right now, and even if I weren't, there's no way that I could get something like that done anytime soon.

So I'm asking for the Shizz's help on this one. I really want to help this kid - death of family members is never anything easy to deal with. I think if we can get some member contributing, we can easily do a CD like this and make a Christmas present for a kid who's not feeling too good right now. Of course, I'm going to drop the offer for money, as it will be a Christmas present from us, and you will all be credited for whatever you do.

I know that he's not a Shizzie, and hell, I don't even know him, but I think that we can help out. What say you guys?

The Willow NSF is here: http://www.zophar.ne...=nsf/willow.zip

And hell, the game has great music, so even if you're not doing it to help someone, you can remix a badass track.

I've said later in the thread, but in case you don't want to read, I've offered up myself to help anyone who wants it, be it mixing, arranging, or recording or anything. I'm sure plenty of others will be willing to help, too, but if you don't feel like asking anyone, I'm offering.

Thanks to you guys for doing this. You guys really rock. Keep on coming, shizzies!

On another note, it's been decided that Christmas is NOT going to be the deadline. We'll want more time to 1) get more songs and remixers and 2) get more quality on these tracks. The finish date is now going to be as soon as we can.

If there is ever going to be a Willow remix project, it'll be done solely by me. Sorry, VETO.

Also, that's a great idea and I'm on board!

You sir, are a sociopath who gets off of insulting other people. People such as you, regardless of talent or merrit are a blight upon this world and aren't worth a single milligram of oxygen. Do the world a favor and go hang yourself you miserable, insecure, magalomaniacal bottom feeder.

Whoo! Awesome. Let's get some more takers in here!

By the way, if you want to start calling tracks, I'll put it in the topic post.

hahah you're doing it! It's a great cause.

No way at all I can contribute more than an easy bass track before christmas. Maybe after MAG though?

Hmm, well, I want to try to get this whole thing worked out before Christmas if we can, seeing that it would be a Christmas present, but we'll see where we're at, and if it takes longer than planned, then by all means!

If not, thanks for the support anyways. :)

Whoah. Some of these tracks need some serious guitar skills.

:o

Will think about this.


Is it "covering up the whole soundtrack with a mixture of single-track-covers" and "songs-that-span-more-than-one-track" or is it: one track - one song on the cd? :huh:

I'd love to do a track, but I'm the (3rd) flakiest dude I know. Put me in the 'maybe' column.

Hell, whatever you guys want to do. Yo can cover a song, or a few in a medley if you so want. Just make sure that you call what songs you want to do so we don't end up with 6 Nockmaar Castles.

And if you're having trouble with some leads or something, hit me up. I've done a few of them from Willow in that medley, and I could learn some to record for others' songs if you need me to.

I never played it, so I don't even know which track is Nockmaar caslte.... :P

But yeah, I will consider this. Thanks for the offered help, but I think I will just work around the most hardcorey stuff. :lol:

Thinking about track 8 atm.

EDIT: Track 8 was the one that I first wanted to do and where I realized the lead-killerage.
Track 9 was the second idea.

Track 8 = Nockmaar Castle.

It's like a total ripoff of Bach's Little Fugue. Also, that lead is pretty much impossible the second time around.

Fuck yeah it is.

Also, whoever this person is may be interested to know that some dude did a speed run of the game awhile back. ;)

Unbridled Ambition was awesome btw. Anyway, I don't play much, but dabble a little with bass and clarinet. Good cause tho, it's very hard dealing with a lost family member. I was tore up when I lost my grandmother years ago.

Hahha, I SO saw that coming. :lol:

Yeah, it sounded totally familiar... like, TOO familiar.

And yes, its totally impossible. I'll go with track 9 for now and see what I can do. Gotta add some other tracks to that... that arpeggio seems like a recurring theme or something, huh? Like, track 12 sounds similar.

Or maybe I'll go for track 10/11... I will try out both today.
