Placid Remedy

Post by omoroca » 09/01/2018 - 17:40

Arrgh! My tune "Placid Remedy" has been rejected by RKO. Reason: "Yie Ar Kung Fu subtune 19 is a straight cover of Magnetic Fields part IV, so technically this isn't a C64 remix." Which I don't understand, as there are other remixes of this tune available at RKO, e.g. by Aurasil. :confusion:

Aurasil's remix was uploaded 17+ years ago - in fact, back then it was most likely added to RKO "manually" from some other FTP-site. There were no such rules for RKO back then, that's why it's there. Kwed and RKO got smarter about copyright rules since then. :) I'm sure it'll be taken down as soon as Jarre's management complains about it. ;-)

It should have been mentioned in the rejection email that this is about copyright issues rather than discouraging musicians to make covers of a cover. I mean, I knew Yie ar Kung Fu *before* I knew Magnetic Fields Part IV, so to me, Galway is the original.

Nice tune! Not familiar with the original, but this has a nice feeling to it.
