Hello Destructoid staff!
My name is Richie Palys. I’m a video game composer and musician based in Chicago. I’m soon to be starting a kickstarter for an album consisting of NES tunes arranged for jazz ensemble with a heavy emphasis on 8-bit synth and production. This is my homage to Nintendo’s everlasting nostalgia that is instilled in me. What I hope to do is reach the NES lovers and share this love letter to Nintendo as a community. Who of you would be apt to help out this project once it goes up on kickstarter?
The tracklist is as follows:
Startropics - Dungeon Theme
Super Mario Bros 2 - Level 1
Bionic Commando - Level 1
Marble Madness - Level 2
The Legend of Zelda II: Link’s Adventure - Temple Theme
Duck Tales - Moon Theme
Little Nemo The Dream Master - Level 1
Ninja Gaiden - Mineshaft
Megaman 2 - Airman
Tell me what you think!
I usually receive email notifications when i receive a submission, but it seems it’s not doing its job. Apologies for any delays in publishing your submissions! (Except for those who keep sending me cool stuff that’s not related to music! STAHP IT! This isn’t the blog you’re looking for :P).

Uncharted Dynamic Music Suite Tribute
For any fans of the Uncharted series, or simply of action adventure music in general: here’s a little experiment that combines dynamic music with a tribute suite to the great music by Greg Edmonson -> www.kejero.com.
Not interested in playing around with dynamic music? Then you might still enjoy the regular 15-minute suite of some of the best themes in this video instead!
We are Philadelphia-based band “Close to Good,” and we have covered and recorded the entire Megaman 3 Soundtrack! CHECK IT OUT!
United Video Game Symphony
Hello! My name is Thomas Kresge and I am the manager of a new concert known as the United Video Game Symphony. We are currently raising funds for our concert on Kickstarter:
To summarize, the UVGS is a live concert and album featuring orchestral arrangements of video game music. The UVGS is unique in that the music we play is decided by a public vote, and our arrangements are created by fans of video game music that come from communities like OCReMix. The entire system creates a very community-driven concert that is designed by the fans of the music itself.
We’re currently looking for all the support we can get, so if that sounds like the kind of things you’re into, support our Kickstarter and share it to others! We appreciate all the help we can get!
