  1. Time of the Red Dyed World: I love Celtic folk, and Septette lends itself surprisingly well to the style. Then again, it seems to work in a lot of different styles. I was really disappointed to find this piece wasn't on CarrotWine's Bandcamp. 7/10 Moonbeam Moon: Similar to last round's "Spectacle of Color," this piece has a nice contrast between stiff techno percussion in the music and soft flowing tones in the vocals. But the contrast is less stark here, leaving a serene but energetic and sometimes sinister remix. I almost feel I'm being told a story through the music. 7/10 Danmaku Surfer Hakurei: I have nothing against surfer rock, but I'm not a fan of it either. I can appreciate the quality of arrangement in this piece, but it's not something I'd listen to again. 5/10 PS: The hat may be familiar
  2. I don't know if last week's "extra" was effective or not, but now seems as good a time as any to expound upon it. This was one of three soundtracks that started my obsession with VGM (the other two were Undertale and A Hat in Time). I came across this soundtrack while searching for orchestral OSTs in indie gaming. The music led me to the game, which contests with the one above for my #1. Other than that, I'm not sure why I often find myself comparing these two soundtracks to each other.
  3. Un-unified Magic World Theory: Considering the source material, this remix was very smooth. It might just be my previous experience with eurobeat, but I get a very strong "anime OP" feel from it. 5/10 Daughter of Touhou Spring: I fell in love with this piece for its unique instrumentation. The original piece already lends itself to an "airy journey" feel, which is accentuated in this piece. 8/10 Inanimate Sounds of Severed Blossoms, Spectacle of Color: Flower Land is one of those Touhou pieces I've yet to fully appreciate. The flowing tone of the vocals contrasts with the hard punch of the music beautifully, but I'm not enjoying it as much as I'd like (edit: listened to it again, felt better about it). 6/10
  4. From the previous remix tournament: You can score it, but it won't count toward the final tally. Personally, I like hearing some of the thoughts behind people's choices (especially for pieces I'm don't like as much at first, as it can give me a better perspective).
  5. This is a really trivial thing, but it's been on my mind a lot so I thought I'd open it up for discussion. Starting with The Last Comer, there have been a series of Touhou fangames which related to each other. There are at least six games I've determined belong to this group. Wanting to keep them organized together, I attributed a subtitle made up of an acronymn of a few names consistently involved with the project: I for ido, a programer; M for Milka, a writer; W for Wanwan, a composer. I recently discovered that White Names of Spoiled Past was worked on by some of the same people, but in different roles this time (Milka and Wanwan worked on character design). I can't determine if this game is considered to be part of the same series or a stand-alone. To summarize, it seems there's a doujin with no name here, and it's messing up my organization structure. Again, a trivial thing, but I'd like to hear what others might think about it.
  6. That's amazing! For some reason, the idea of classical into Touhou has never occurred to me before, and I love the idea. For anyone who might need context: This reminds me of a couple other instances where a Touhou-style piece is produced from an unrelated source. These may be either more or less impressive; the foundational motifs are very short, which means more work but more freedom (I'm inclined to think the Chopin adaptation was more difficult). Regardless, they're pretty spectacular. Is this a thing, now? Don't worry, DF, I'll be patient.
  7. These are a few of the flash games I used to play that stuck in my memory musically. In looking them up for this post, I found multiple cases where music used was not composed for the game, but nonetheless has become associated with it. Orb A Mind Too Demented for Eating - surfertmex Diamond Hollow II Handheld Hero - Wizwars Duck Life 4 Swimming Training Theme - Peter Carr In a lot of ways, these pieces represent my introduction to VGM, especially in the case of Duck Life 4 (underrated soundtrack).
  8. YES! This is the original version of one of my favorite fan-made Touhou tracks! The original artist wasn't happy with the piece (as seen by their comment on the original video), and decided to remake it. I get the impression Precision wanted a more boss-theme type track, but you can judge for yourself. Sometime after that, someone else asked to remix the theme again. Having been granted permission, the Nenekonesha presented onto Precision a piece entitled, "Isolated Musical Phrases about a Girl that was Cut from Production by its Creator but Whose Resource References were not Commented Out from the Source Code either due to Development Oversight or Just Plain Trolling and was Picked up By Fans Because She looked Moe ~ Descending Pink." ... Thankfully, the title was shortened before release. The looping version is better, but the only one available is a ten minute plus extended. Still worth a listen, though. I'd love another remix tournament (especially since I missed the first one).
  9. I've very much enjoyed contributing to the Other Game Music thread, and I'd like to start doing something similar with Touhou related music. This thread will be for the sharing of musical discoveries made in the Touhou fandom, whether they be remixes or original works in the style of Touhou. There's been a few threads like this already, but my hope is the more open-ended style of this will make it more accessible. If anyone hasn't checked the Remix Tournament and Monthly Music Sharing threads, there's some great music to be found there! To start off, a comment on a LENK64 video led me to this circle. Apparently they do remixes in the styles of the games. For example, Bad Apple!!, but in the style of Touhou 11 ~ Subterranean Animism: I've appreciated quite a few of their covers. If there's a Touhou related piece of music anyone would like to share, please do! I'll commit to contributing once a week.
  10. Well, we had to get to this eventually. If there's anyone left in the world who hasn't heard this soundtrack, then that just reinforces the need to get it on this thread. On the other hand, this older title deserves at least equal recognition. I can't be the only one who sees the similarities between these two, right? The music, the stories, even the titles . . . But I haven't seen anyone make the comparison before. Maybe I've just missed it.

  13. That's a good point, actually. Obviously Youtube is a big one, but I tend to find a lot of Touhou music on Bandcamp as well. A few times I've ventured over to Niconico, but that's a bit more difficult to navigate for a monolingual English speaker like me. Anyone else?
