Obsidian Soundtrack ReMakes
Album - Owner: Kaiaatzl - 2 items
Obsidian, like the Entropy Experiment, had a great midi soundtrack that was far ahead of its time.  The limitations of the midi format, however, had a huge (and very bad) impact on what could have been so much more if it wasn't a midi soundtrack.  There were only a few sound sets where you could actually hear how great the soundtrack really was, and the lack of filters, lack of realistic guitars, and the limitations of midi drum sets (mostly the limits of having only 2 kicks and 2 snares per song) all put a cap on what otherwise could have been so much better.

I'm remaking each of the nine songs from scratch and trying to bring them all some of 'what could have been'.

Rate and review.

As you may or may not have heard I'm now trying to turn the soundtrack from Obsidian into an electronic rock album.  The lyrics here were actually written for something different but I kept hearing them in my head sung to the tune of the level 7 song from Obsidian, and I eventually just gave in and wrote it as a remix of the level 7 theme from Obsidian instead of an original song that would have been half as good.

What am I doing?
Why am I here?
I feel like I'm standing
On the edge of a chasm

Looking down into the
Mists that shroud the birth of time
I want to know the reason
Reality is here

I'm standing on the precipice
Looking down into the pit
Of time, the universe and all reality

I'm waiting for something
In this great unknown
Why am I?
Or am I at all?

I am connected
To the universe
My feet keeping time
To the ends of reality
I am a part
Of the great unknown
One of the pieces
In balance in a great machine
(x2)

How did I come to be
Am I even here?
Could I simply be a figment
Of my own imagination

Is life a test of faith
From some sort of diety
Or could it really be made out of
Pure random chance

I'm standing on this precipice
Looking down into the mists that
Shroud the beginnings of time and all reality

Is there a reason?
Should I just jump off and see?
I long to know why I am.

I am connected
To the universe
My feet keeping time
To the ends of reality
I am a part
Of the great unknown
One of the pieces
In balance in a great machine
(x2)

Time...
Reality's birth
Time...
Time...

Time...
What happened to Earth?
Time...
Time...

:Guitar Solo 1:

And I feel like I'm falling
All the way down to the mists that
Shroud the beginning of time
And all reality

I feel like I'm falling
All the way down through those mists that
Shroud the beginning of time
And all reality

Guitar Solo 2:

I'm hanging on the cliff face
Looking down into the pit of
Time, the universe and all reality

I climb back up the cliff face
Knowing that there are some things
I just can't know

I am connected
To the universe
My feet keeping time
To the ends of reality
I am a part
Of the great unknown
One of the pieces
In balance in a great machine
x2

What does the picture have to do with the song, you ask?  I have no idea.
02 - Accelleration February 03, 2012, 07:56:26 PM 272
Original track was "Extrune", by Verran.

Playful acid-DnB remix.  Definitely watery.  Just as well as this song played only in water-themed levels.
It might look like the remix is just named for its level, but it's named Accelleration because Accelleration is the best possible name for it.  Just listen to it and you'll see.
