Halo Soundtrack Remix Comments
We asked Spiderstyle to comment on his Halo Soundtrack Remix; here's what he sent us.
From: "Spiderstyle" <email@example.com> To: HBO Community Subject: Comments on Halo Remix Date: Mon, 30 Dec 2002 20:26:55 +0100 Hi there everybody! As I'm a true hardcore fan of Bungie's Halo I've read "The Fall of Reach" and also bought the official soundtrack on CD. On the 25th of September, late at night, after completely reading the book for the 4th time and completing Halo on the normal mode once again (Heheheh) I suddenly found myself behind my PC extracting soundbits from the soundtrack to see if I could fit a dancebeat underneath it. From one thing came another and after about 3 days of sweat, blood, tears and alot of pizza it was finished. "Belly of the Beast" was born and it became better than I ever expected it to become. So I asked Wouter from Xboxworld.nl (The biggest Dutch Xbox community on the web) if he wanted to write a small news article about it and host it on the Xboxworld.nl server. Wouter agreed and the rest is history. People were actually enjoying it and that's the best thing that can happen to an artist. I was pleasantly surprised when I checked my e-mail on the 29th of December and found an e-mail from Louis in which he asked for my permission to add my Halo Remix to the HBO "Fan Music Collection". "My remix on HBO?! OMG!". That was basicly my first reaction. I've been a fan of the articles on the HBO site (especially the "Halo Story" section) since I became hooked on Halo. As an artist you can only hope that as many people as possible hear your work and I'm very aware that Bungie and Halo fans all over the world will be hearing my remix as soon as HBO would add my remix to the "Fan Music Collection". I really hope that you Bungie and Halo fans will enjoy it. If you have any kind of comments, questions or suggestions please feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org I would also like to pay my respect to the guys at Total Audio (Marty O'Donnell and Mike Salvatori) for creating such a strong soundtrack as they did. I never experienced anything like it so if you don't have the official soundtrack you should go out and buy it today as a true Halo fan should never be seen without it. Happy holidays to all of the people on HBO and Xboxworld.nl! Regards, Spiderstyle
