Notes

My third orchestra+organ play-along album contains nine OC remixes by various artists, all of them in a similar style, as if the original composers would have had a silent agreement that, one day, these pieces were intended to be put together.

The glue between all of the tracks is suggested by the album title — they're all enhanced and backed by a three-manuals French-Romantic Cavaillé-Coll pipe organ, which I added on top by playing along in two live sessions (yes, I love plays on words, hence the album title). This adds even more drama, gravity and a bunch of particular highlights.

Since the additional pipe organ track was recorded in 7.1 surround, the original OC remixes, which served as the re-remixing basis, were also upgraded to 7.1 to fit the setup. The recording and mixing process, credits research, video material research, storybook and composition, album art, media production, etc. took about three months of spare-time work — definitely my most ambitious project so far and an interesting first contact with DAWs in general and Ardour 6 in particular.

More info about this album project and related events as well as links to the full movie cut and surround downloads is available at this OC Remix forum thread: ocremix.org/community/topic/51006

Hi all,

I'm proud to announce that my latest album, "Metroid: Organ Transplants" has entered the final stage of video production and is about to be released on Youtube, ContreBombarde and as free downloadable CD/DVD images around the New Years Day. What started out as an "accidental recording", over the past two months has grown into a personal tribute to the most stunning orchestral OC remixes attributed to the Metroid franchise:

The album will be available for download via my discography at http://en.wpoa.de/WPOA-MOT

as a stereo CD image,
as a DVD image with both a 5.1 surround sound and a 2.0 stereo track including a full 45min video cut
of Metroid gameplay, cutscenes and artwork created by other people on the web (let's call it "the movie cut"),
in lossless FLAC format with 7.1 channels (the "golden master")
and will be accompanied by PDFs with cover/inlay/label artwork, separately for both the CD and DVD,
which I put together for personal hardcopies that I usually give away to friends and family as a gift.
