View Full Version : Celestia, huge Japanese VGM remix project debuts

09-28-2005, 09:54 PM
Japan has its own unique remixing community; however, instead of submitting material to a few big sites like OCRemix and VGMix, Japanese remixers often host their own collections and often commercially issue CDs of their work. In a change of pace, a huge collaboration was recently organized and executed by Daijin, an enterprising remixer. He drew upon the varied talents of the entire community in a titanic effort to cover several RPG game scores in a project called Celestia, and after long hours of work, 87 remixes were produced! Of these, 13 are of Chrono series works. Most of the others cover Final Fantasy titles.

Due to the absence of sites like OCRemix to "set the bar", the Japanese VGM community doesn't have strict guidelines like their American counterparts. Don't worry; these pieces are well-crafted and fine tuned. Every Chrono fan -- every RPG fan -- is compelled to check these out, and delight in our fellow fans' works across the Pacific. For ease of download, I have mirrored all the Chrono works on the Compendium's media server, herograw.org (we're still in the process of changing links elsewhere on the site from herograw.com to herograw.org; bear with us). Enjoy these works, and to find the full collection at the Celestia Project headquarters, scroll past the Chrono remix links.
