About this project

Din nin nin, din nin NIN! nin!

     Yes, that's the beginning of one of the most beloved and recognizable songs in the world, the Ground Theme from the Orginial Super Mario Bros. (And for those of you who don't know, that's the very first song you hear when you first start the game in level 1-1.) Mario and Luigi then go Underground, Underwater, and even to the evil Bowser's Castle! And one of the most memorable things about all of these levels and adventures is the music. We all know every note to every song in the game, and hearing that 8-bit music bings nostaglia to our hearts every time we do. 

     But what if we can hear those songs modernized, in ways that you've never heard them before? What if they were remixed in today's popular genres of music, so that you can get a new perspective on some old favorites? That's what my mission is. My vision is to complete a full remix album, about 10-15 tracks, from songs from all games from the Super Mario franchise, including but not limited to: Super Mario Bros. 1-3, Super Mario 64, Galaxy, Mario Kart and maybe even a few surprises! 

     And there will be something for everyone to enjoy too! Imagine a Rock remix to Bower's imposing theme from Super Mario 64. Or a beautifully orchestrated arrangement of the Underwater Theme from the original SMB. Or maybe even a Hip Hop beat version of an old favorite. Dance, Techno, DubStep?! The possibilites are endless....But I need YOUR help!

     I want to do this thing the right way! I want to make this album sound 10 times better than what you hear in the sample video- musically, techically, and sonically speaking. Any money gathered would be used to make this sound as good as possible, the way it should be heard! Virtual instruments (high quality strings/synthesizers/drums, unlike the lousy sounding ones in the sample video!), live recording gear (a microphone or two wouldn't hurt!), studio time, plug-ins to make the mix sound marvelous, a program like Pro Tools, will all be huuuuge upgrades and are neccesities to making this album sound perfect. I'm even looking to mix in on a large scale analogue recording console in a studio.

Any help in any way will be greatly appreciated! Thanks everyone and have a nice day! 1UP!
