Japanese artist Geniway made a tribute to Final Fantasy XIII using LABO and the Nintendo Switch.
Amazing what can be done with a Nintendo Switch and Nintendo's LABO cardboard... thing (not sure what you would classify LABO as):
I love the pitch bending by wobbling the box!

It's taken forever, but the 'Video Game Boss Battle Themes' album is finally here! Free download at the following link:
Here's a sampler for the album:
And here's a Discogs page so you can add it to your collections:
Thanks to all the artists who volunteered their time to make this excellent clutch of tracks. Extra-special thanks to WATMM's resident mastering engineer Zephyr Nova who did a great job giving the album cohesive levels! I know it's taken a while to come out, but I hope you'll all agree that the wait has been worth it!
This is meant to be a free album: please do not pay anything (enter '$0' under 'Buy Now'). I only used the 'pay what you want' option because that way there is no download cap. Enjoy!

I'd like to advertise for my friend Niclas well crafted chippy and melodic 4 track EP out now on Unko Records.
First track is an original composition and the three others are covers of old well known 8-bit tunes (two from Mega Man and one from Super Mario Land)
Check it out:

And the winner of the poll is: BOSS BATTLE THEMES
So, as with other WATMM music projects this is a call-out to all producers/composers/musicians on WATMM and beyond interested in contributing. The theme of this album is 'Video Game Boss Battle Themes' which are often characterized as being grandiose, foreboding, intense, etc: an ambient album this will NOT be (though you can do an ambient interpretation if you want)! Mini-Boss themes work as well: pretty much any confrontation with a powerful enemy where the music changes to suit the situation!
There is such a tremendous pool of amazing material to cover and/or remix for this project! That being said I am not adverse to original compositions so long as they would sound suitable during a 'Boss Battle' of sorts. Also, feel free to submit as many tracks as you'd like!
So, here are the important rules:
1 - Due date for submitted tracks was November 1st, but I want to get more submissions in without people feeling too pressured so it's now JANUARY 15th, 2015!
2 - Submit your completed track(s) to [email protected] using a file sharing service like WeTransfer, Mediafire, etc.
3 - Submit your track(s) in a lossless format such as WAV or FLAC. Do NOT add a huge amount of compression (unless this is the effect you are trying to achieve) or otherwise attempt to master your track as all the tracks will be mastered for the album so as to have a more cohesive sound/volume. In your final mixdown please try to leave at 1-2dB of headroom.
4 - Album will, at the very least, be a free release on Bandcamp. If there is sufficient interest I may look into a physical pressing, but we shall have to see how this goes.
In the spirit of WATMM's Xmas comps all submissions will likely make it onto the final album unless I get a ridiculous # of them and then we may have to whittle the # down a tad to keep to a reasonable playtime.
In order to avoid a situation in which everyone makes covers of the same track (e.g, a 15 track album of covers of SMB 3's Boom Boom Theme) feel free to post in this topic with regard to the theme you'd like to cover, that way people will not all chose the same ones hopefully.
Alright, I am very excited to hear what you all come up with!
