So, here's our second collaboration attempt, which came out pretty well considering how hard building an arrangement is by trading like this, but we can certainly do even better in the future. This is also my chance to show off my new setup for capturing video from the Wii, which looks pretty darn good now--so much better than shaky cam footage!

Well, I sent everyone I had registered my latest video. Give me your feedback. I'm pretty darn pleased with it.

Great work! I love the texture, the mood buildup, and the melody that you managed to tease out of old Frere'. You needn't be concerned in the slightest, as you suggested once recently, about your skills compared to the rest of us; you're work is as polished as anyone here.

Wow, thanks a bunch man! Glad you got that emulator, because there's some of these that I've always wanted to post on Youtube. I won't bother you with that now, but maybe someday I will. Glad you liked it, anyways.

What's so great about Wii Music? You can't even create your own music!
293. Posted: Sat 4th Jul 2009 19:51 BST
You do create your own music, but not in the way you might expect; you have to start off with one of the 50 tracks and then, working within and against the structure of the song, bend it into something of your own. This is actually much closer in many ways to the way one naturally composes music than, say, the explicit music creator in Mario Paint. That may sound counterintuitive, since the latter looks more like directly creating music by drawing the notes on the staff, but most bands out there create music by toying with musical ideas and arrangements, combining different influences and waiting for something to click, rather than drawing out a score note by note.
294. Posted: Sat 4th Jul 2009 23:20 BST
Also, unlike Guitar Hero where you're tied down to playing specific notes, in Wii Music you're free to improvise whenever you please, and you can use over 60 different instruments to do so. Wii Music is not like Rock Band or Guitar Hero, in the fact that it's not about "rocking out" or perfection, it's about composing music and expressing your creativity. If you're interested in musical composition, this is worth checking out.

Alright I made a couple new videos that I send to everyone last night (except outrunner because I litterally JUST added you). The one's that turned out well were Grandfather Clock and Swan Lake. I tried a little beat experiment as well with Twinkle Twinkle but...well it'll be good for a laugh

I did a new one just now with September. It's really the first time I've tried to work 'outside the box' so it's probably not great. I'll send it you if you don't mind and you can tell me if I'm doing OK or not.Edit: How do you add someone on this? It added you automatically warioswoods. My Wii still hasn't recognised Chicken Brutus' FC, it has recognised Kid_A but I can't send videos to anyone but ww. Sorry if I'm bein a nuisance... lol.

Even though it's a more "straightforward" arrangement, I thought your Animal Crossing was quite nice--you've already got the hang of giving the arrangement some space, having different sections and buildup, etc. As far as the friend registration, I know that it usually takes a while even after confirmation as Wii friends for Wii Music to allow video sharing, and Chicken Brutus only has his Wii online sporadically, so everything takes forever with him, but once he finally gets online and is confirmed, he will receive anything you send him, it just make take him a while.
Both of your latest arrangements were extremely well done! As for Twinkle Twinkle, I couldn't help but use your great percussion for a weird finished video, which I just sent back at you; I'm not sure yet if it lives up to the potential of the percussion, but I'll see how I like it once I come back to it in a day--I always find it hard to judge a recording when I've just finished making it and had to hear it a trillion times in a row during the recording. I also sent one of my own electric version of Swan Lake, but I believe your version is better.
I can't wait until I have the time to get this website up and running, so that we can share, comment on, and rate our videos all in one place; hopefully I'll find enough time outside work to keep pulling it together over the next few weeks.

Thanks ww. It is very 'straightforward' though as you say. I really loved your Sakura Sakura. It's very different from the original melody and has sort of opened my eyes to what can be done. I'm not sure if I'll be able to do anything like that but I'll try and have fun.

Outrunner I've registered you as well.
Kid_A, I've yet to check out your latest creations, but I should get some time in the next couple of days (got a backlog; Tenchu beckons since I've got to write a review of it).
I just think it's so brilliant this thread is going strong and we've got a good cadre of Wii Music video sharers. Even without the collaborations just being able to share videos with folks is really great. I cannot wait to see what happens with the website!
