American Pixels is a new video game music remix album being assembled by veteran game music arranger Mazedude. The project will cover game music composed specifically and solely by American composers, and will span all genres while maintaining a general theme of electronic fusion with live instrumentalists. The project is set to be released in 2013, and is now open for pre-orders to aid the artist in covering production costs, licensing fees, etc.
As an added incentive, all those who pre-order will be allowed to download a bonus EP of chiptune remixes! (Please note that the American Pixels album and the Star Spangled Chips EP are two very different releases; one is a fully produced album with live performers, the other is comprised of solely electronic progressive chiptunes.)
This website will catalogue the album's progress and development; read below to stay up to date on all the latest project news, and have fun exploring the rest of the content on the website!
SKYRIM REMIX FINISHED
The "Song of the Dragonborn" remix is finished, and I freakin' love it... a new personal favorite for me. Now I just need to get the live piano recorded. Oh, and I'm making excellent strides on my Sam and Max track.
BACK IN THE GROOVE, MAKING PROGRESS
Alrighty, so it's been quiet for a while. It's been hard for me to make progress on an album while also running a business, taking care of a newborn (I'm a DAD now!), and catching up on work that's piled up while helping my wife recover from surgery. But, baby and mother are doing great, I'm catching up on work, and I've actually found a way to successfully work music into my hectic schedule. That said, I'm back in the groove on the album, things are coming together smoothly, and - since everyone likes to see these things - here's a chart showing y'all where things are at!
LOTS OF PROGRESS
Welcome to the Sprawl
Song of the Dragonborn
Metropolis Hero Intro
Welcome to Rapture
Spirit of Bladehenge
And then there are the tracks that are starting to fall into the "maybe" department, dependent on whether or not this flows into a 2-disc deal or not. The above list would make a very full, and very solid single-disc compilation. The other games mentioned at the left - Dante's Inferno, Super Meat Boy, Outlaws, etc... may have to wait until a future project instead. We'll see how long it takes me to finished the above; hopefully not toooo long. :)
Oh, and with the new Skyrim remix added to the mix, we have a new composer page added for Jeremy Soule.
HAPPY NEW YEAR; ENJOY THE FIRST TEASER!
A taste of what's on the way. 7 track snippets. (Btw, everyone who has pre-ordered got their own special extended teaser that's over twice as long.)
Should have some behind-the-scenes vids coming your way soon.
VIDEO TEASER ON THE WAY... GAME GRAPHICS IN HEADER ADJUSTED
Stay tuned for a video teaser coming very soon! Live instruments are being worked into the mixes, and I'm really solidifying the games and tracks that are going to be in the project. Check out the updated header graphic for a better idea of what has made the cut.
