Keengrass!

Post by thehackercat » Sat Apr 03, 2010 1:50

Hey guys! As a break from the exhausting 4 minutes' worth of work I've done on Keenweb, :o I've decided to remix a Keen tune in a way that hasn't been done EVER BEFORE.

As if you couldn't have guessed from the subject up there, I've made a bluegrass dub of "Oasis" from Keen 4. I may do some other songs later, as well as clean up this one. But it's just a novelty thing to keep y'all interested.

I was going to use this as an April Fool's, but I couldn't see how...

Download the song at: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5492365/Keengrass.mp3

:D

Hahaha, that was . . . actually a lot better than I was expecting! Certainly a unique remix.

Took me a while to figure out it was Oasis though, since I completely missed that line in your post. I was like 'Hrm, this kind of sounds familiar, maybe Kick in the Pants?. Nah...I wonder what it is."

I can play it alright. Have you got QuickTime installed?

Sounds good btw, shame it's so short!

An .aiff can be handled by a slew of programs, including iTunes, Quicktime, and I THINK, Windows Media Player. If anything, you can try opening it with your browser if it has Quicktime embedded.

MPlayer will pretty much solve all your codec problems, ever (except DRM-protected ones, but who does that anyway? :P)
Wow look at me I'm lurking

Or you can just use WinAmp.

Nice music there, shame about the file format. It's huuuuuuge. 40 seconds of music shouldn't be 5 mb.

I fixed it! I used iTunes to create an mp3 version. I changed the link up there, but for convenience, here it is: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5492365/Keengrass.mp3

If anybody wants to hear any other Keen music in bluegrass style (or another style), just post! I really have too much spare time for things like this. :D

Haha, no I'm not. :evil No I'm not...

Actually, I was going to do the Ion Ventilation System music in big band style. Maybe I could do bluegrass too.

Well, bluegrass isn't from Kentucky. You may be thinking of THIS bluegrass.

Aaah an mp3 version. Much better. I had never heard of an AFIF file before.

Sad that the actual bluegrassy sounding part is so short.
