The lights are on
The gaming community intersects with many other mediums. Talented photographers, videographers, visual artists, and musicians have a passion for games (as can be evidenced on YouTube, DeviantArt, and other showcase sites). Capcom has laid down a challenge for those who express themselves with aural creation.
Oliver Deriviere, composer of Remember Me's classical-meets-eletronica soundtrack has made available a track titled "Fragments" along with all of the single stems used to create it. Two winners will be chosen (one by judges and one by the community), with prizes including a vinyl LP of the winning track, an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, a developer-signed copy of Remember Me, the title's official art book, and other merchandise.
Once uploaded, the community will be able to vote on the different creations. You can read the rules, see the introduction from Deriviere, and (eventually) vote on the contest page.
Our TakeAs I sit here, listening to OC Remix's new Final Fantasy VI: Balance and Ruin album I find myself extremely interested in what community musicians come up with as part of this contest. If you haven't yet listened to Oliver Deriviere's soundtrack, it's absolutely worth the investment. I'm not sure I'll ever play Remember Me, but I've had the music in regular rotation since it launched alongside the game.
