This month, Lusipurr.com is pleased to present the first commission from our Music Director: Jahan ‘The Legendary Zoltan’ Honma!
Hello, demonic cat worshippers. The day is here! Today we will find out if I am promoted from probationary status or just fired on the spot. I would just like to say that I have had a great stay here at Lusipurr.com and I wish all the best to my replacement. [Editor’s Note: Zoltan was confirmed as a staff member. -Lusi]
The Mammon March
Source Music: Chrono Trigger – Corridors of Time
Original Composer: Yasunori Mitsuda
Remix: The Mammon March
This is the legendary theme of the Kingdom of Zeal from Chrono Trigger. This piece is no stranger to the remixing scene but, to my knowledge, it has never been heard as a John Philip Sousa-style march. Sousan marches have a very defined style and structure that Corridors of Time fits into quite poorly. Most songs lend themselves to some genres better than others and that is why there are a lot of Castlevania and Mega Man metal remixes. However, with some effort it is possible to turn any song into any other genre no matter how remote, and that is what I have done. When I set out to remix Zeal into marching band music, I did not think it would sound good. After all, most marches are entirely in major keys, are very upbeat, and are written to inspire people to take action. Zeal is completely minor, much more exotic than upbeat, and was written for a kingdom where everyone just goes to sleep all the time.
Anyway, there is no need to bore you with my whole song-writing approach. Let us just get right to the results. Was The Legendary Zoltan able to make Corridors of Time into a proper Sousan march? Yes! Does it sound good? Yes! This is a call to action to research magic, improve the Mammon Machine’s ability to absorb energy from Lavos, and cast our grand shadows on the land dwellers below. We have the gift of magic! We are the chosen! This is the march for the glorious, magical Kingdom of Zeal.
