Notes

Golden Sun: A World Reignited
Album freely available at https://ocremix.org

Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age, two halves of a single story, took gamers on a wondrous journey through the rich and varied world of Weyard. Golden Sun saw you charged with the noble quest of stopping those who would release the destructive powers of alchemy upon the world, while The Lost Age turned the tables as players found themselves in control of the first game's antagonists, desperate to restore this ancient magic. This story of discovery, exotic locales, forgotten histories, hidden motivations, heroism, and desperation was nowhere more beautifully embodied than in motion Sakuraba's incredible soundtrack.

We invite you to once again return to the world of Golden Sun with Golden Sun: A World Reignited, the 74th free community arrangement album from OverClocked ReMix. Take a new journey from the slopes of Mount Aleph to the shores of the Karagol Sea, from the depths of Madra Catacombs to the tops of the monolithic elemental lighthouses. Featuring 37 tracks and 42 artists in a wide variety of genres, this is the return of Golden Sun, as you have never heard it before!

As we were trying to paint a revitalized picture of Weyard through music, I also hoped our album cover would do the same visually. From the beginning, I imagined the cover as landscape containing one of the lighthouses that would give us a view of it that we never got in the games, something that would show the magnificence of these ancient structures. With that in mind, I started hunting for fan art that had a similar style. I happened upon a YouTube video with a really cool rendition of the elemental sanctum. It wasn't exactly what I imagined, but it was a gorgeous piece of artwork. Thankfully the YouTuber credited the artist, and soon I found myself on Orioto's DeviantArt page, which was just full of stunning and fantastical landscapes, many of them from video games! I messaged him and was ecstatic to find out that not only was he interested and a Golden Sun fan, he was also a fan of OCR as well. Perfect!

I shared my ideas with him, and then gave him free reign to create what he thought would work best. The resulting cover art featuring all four lighthouses in near-perfectly game-accurate landscapes absolutely blew me away. He surpassed my wildest hopes and gave the album a one of a kind piece of art. As a bonus, he also offered the elemental sanctum piece which originally caught my attention as the back cover.

As the artwork came together, we were still lacking title graphics. Fortunately for us, djpretzel jumped in and put something together! It matched the style of the game logos themselves, and with the addition of some well-placed embers, really drove the idea of A World Reignited home.

I had the privilege of making my debut as ReMixer on the Arcadia Legends album in December 2018. I was so excited when the album was released that I immediately started thinking about what I could do next. I bounced around the forums for a couple weeks looking for someone who might need a trumpet player, but didn't really find anything. So, I decided I would try to pull together a new ReMix on my own, and what better place to start than my favorite game, Golden Sun. As I was beginning to mull over ideas for the many MANY tracks I thought should be ReMixed, there was a conversation in the Discord chat suggesting a Golden Sun album. A few of us responded that we'd love to see it, but there was also some skepticism that there'd be enough interest to make it happen. I ended up spending some time looking at old posts on the request forums, and what I realized was that if I wanted to see it happen, I was going to have to be the one to lead it!

So It began. I spent three hours on the phone with my brother (also a big GS fan) picking a tracklist for the album. I went through every post anyone had ever made about Golden Sun on OCR. Specifically, I looked at both of the previous attempts at a Golden Sun project. I wanted to understand what their approaches had been. What had they done right? What did I think needed to be done differently? Once I had come up with a management plan that I believed would help avoid the pitfalls of the past and complete an album inside of a year, I posted the project thread in the forum, and started recruiting!

This is where I stop being the main character in this story. Over the following months, our album became a collaborative effort of 43 different artists. There are 14 collaboration tracks. Five of them have at least four people involved and fifteen of the ReMixers have more than one track on the album. We also want to give a special shout out to MindWanderer who evaluated and provided feedback on every single track, as well as Bubble Pipe Media, who saved the day at the 11th hour by signing on as our mastering engineer. Siolfor the Jackal deserves a special mention as well for putting in a tremendous amount of effort behind the scenes. Every single person involved went above and beyond what was expected. The quality of this album and the rapidity with which it has been completed is a direct result of the talent and unyielding dedication of everyone involved.

We are proud to present Golden Sun: A World Reignited, and we hope you enjoy every minute of it.
