Recently I have again been playing about with a composing and remix music. Creating music is a hard and frustrating experience especially when, like me, you have a very limited talent for it. However I was over the moon when I saw the Crap Remix Compo over at Remix64’s forum as it seemed right up my proverbial street (I live on a road). The idea of the the competition is to intentionally create bad music, a cover/remix of an existing Commodore 64 tune, but the twist is to make it so bad it’s funny.
This is actually much harder than it sounds, but after playing around a while with a few different tunes, I managed to do this to the Commando title tune (with apologies to Rob Hubbard)[audio:http://www.glenmcnamee.com/wp-content/uploads/Glen-McNamee-Commando-Its-suppose-to-be-rubbish-remix.mp3]
I think it is both terrible and pretty funny, and I’m quiet proud of it in a strange sort of way. It was recently played on the Anna Black Anorak on Slay Radio to a great response.
I may even try to create another one.
