Last night, the second Scene Music Remake Challenge came to an end. After a slow start and an extended deadline, several entries came in after all. As a result we have 8 songs from 6 different composers that entered the challenge. Here is an overview of all entries:

Now, the time has come to rate each entry. This time, we have found MSX composer Danilo Danisi (DanDan) - best known from his work for IOD in e.g. the Metal Limit megademo - prepared to take on the task of being the juror of this challenge. We will publish the challenge results and jury report as soon as they come in.

Low_Profile: of course you can still send it in as a non-competing entry. I don't think we'll be doing a third SMR challenge....

Hey DanDan! If you ever read this post, I'd want you to know that I've always seen you as one of the greatest MSX composers ever. Your exceptionally strong point I found was the usage of MSX Audio in the IOD Metal Limit demo. You really should get back at producing MSX songs, man!

I believe that this guy is the same that was mentioned on the MSX TOP CLASS (Brazilian magazine). Since I am not a big fan of "Instrument Of Darkness" I don't know how well is the work.

The RHAPSODY demo was popular. Even if some persons (like me) don't know how is this thing working ...

Hi DanDan!!!

All the people who loves your music should know that you have the touch also for graphic
and visual arts (and not only in the MSX scene IIRC).
BTW, all the graphic of Total Parody (sprites, background and animations) is from DanDan !!!
The there were other 2 or 3 unpublished levels (LEGO is only the first stage) and dozens of
animated enemies.

Nice to hear from you again!!

hehe, you people talk about DanDan like he's someone who's unreachable and lost forever.. when I asked him to become jury, by simply sending him an email, I got a (more than) positive reply within 90 minutes.. Hannibal
