Gigs Upon Gigs Of Gigs

Filed under: digital — mhoye @ 2:17 pm

I have got an entry for you here that will seize your nerve endings with a musician’s delicate hands and strum them to a rhythm. You will feel a momentary inner stillness, and those parts of your apparatus charged with simple joys will shift and throb in time.

  • South By Southwest, SXSW, is a 20-year-old annual music and media festival that takes place in Austin, Texas around, oh, now. This year, they’ve released the SXSW Toolbox, and the first of the torrents they plan to release has 739 songs in it. 3.1 Gigs of music. They’re going to put up a torrent of their film trailers soon, and I’ll keep you informed.
  • If you’re a big nerd like me, and you like video game music, Zelda Re-Orchestrated is a good download. It’s fanart, of course, so it’s somewhat uneven, mostly good fun and occasionally great.
  • I don’t know what’s going on here, but it’s some kind of messed up and you should be looking at it right now.
  • I do know what’s going on here, but it’s pretty and good fun, so you should watch it anyway.

Don’t act like I never do anything for you, internet.


  1. Oh, you do plenty. That Paprika thing? The name could be… better, but I can’t wait to see it.

    And I can’t stop listening to the Zelda music now.

  2. Zelda Re-Orchestrated is good no doubt, but I find that the remixing community at has come up with some better sounding projects. For example, Chrono Symphonic, Project Chaos, and Blood on the Asphalt (SF2).

    You see any song that passes through first has to pass through a panel of judges so you’re nearly guaranteed awesomeness.
