[REMAKE] Re: Reveris


Author Comments

Hey everyone, this is a remake of a flagship piece of VGM of mine. With the aid of my MIDI keyboard, remaking this was a doddle compared to when I first wrote this in November of 2011.

Gather round, because I shall tell you all the tale.


Once upon a time, there was a girl who lived in a sleepy town.

She made music and got invited onto a burgeoning community of creatives called Newgrounds.

One day, she chanced upon a piece, now deleted from Newgrounds, called "listen" by rtil.

That, and the stars above the town as she made her way back to her student house on many late nights, were deep influences on this piece.

She intended for it to be a title and menu theme to a game that had been left almost to die, a game she had had in mind for years.

But her heart and soul were impure -- grimy and stained by sin -- and needed to be scoured by fire.

The fire of trial and turmoil.

The fire of love and compassion and empathy and diversity and passion.

Over the course of nine years, she would see a sudden move halfway across the land. She would abandon her old, hard-line, bigoted ways with the help of people who truly loved her, and she would begin to listen to and learn from and draw strength from others' triumphs and suffering. She would spend years reading up the history that had been denied her in her childhood and adolescence. She would also begin to reimagine this game, as it needed to tell a real gut-wrenching tale — not one from rose-tinted glasses.

And she would also redo this piece from scratch and from memory, as her production skills improved manifold.

Most of the people who influenced the original game idea would never cross paths with her again. Perhaps with an older and wiser mind, she might finally be able to tell the story as it was meant to be told.


To the many whom I have aggrieved by my inability and unwillingness to see the Divine in those different than I: I am sorry. Also, I'm sorry I'm late. I had plenty to learn over the years.

I dearly want to hear you revisit this piece. Singing. Has been one of the most moving melodies. Absolutely can't get it out of my head.

Also, your production has really improved.

Troisnyx responds:

Yes, at some point I think a remake of the vocal version of Re:Rev is due. O_O I imagine it'd be quite the spine-tingler when it's done.

Thank you so much for the kind words, and for favouriting this piece! <3

Cool!!! Sounds good... Please make another piece like that!!!
