EDIT 4/23/20: The song get REALLY repetitive towards the middle so I removed a bunch of the repeated stuff. I would have done this a lot sooner if I realized it was possible to do that. If you want to hear the original, you can find it here: https://youtu.be/o5FYCWUnAQA

I've been wanting to remix this song for a while but I just couldn't figure out what to do with it. In my music theory class we got to SATB harmonize whatever melody we chose and I chose this. For fun, I ended up adding the part that comes after the first melody (I have no clue what to call it, the part that sounds kindof chromatic) and added tempo changes and so on until i had like 50 seconds of the song in sheet music. I then loaded it up in ableton to hear what it sounded like on different instruments and there was one that had a delay effect on it that gave it some really interesting rhythms. I then decided to go with that because it reminded my of a style I wanted to try out (inspired by this song: https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/885627). I don't really know what techno trance is, or what either of those are on their own, so I'm not sure which one mine is, but I just really liked the sound of gated synths. The chromatic parts really sound like video game boss fight music to me, which is good because thats exactly what the original song was, so I'm glad I was able to capture that feeling.
