The wonderfully talented and very kind, Robin Skouteris took time to not only read my shot in the dark message I sent to him about Adventurtorium, but to actually download it, listen, and respond! I was a bit in shock when I received a message from him on Facebook! With his permission I present to you his thoughts on Adventurtorium: An Up Inspired Experience.
Hey Joe Thank you for your reach-out!
This is a very interesting project. I haven’t heard all the tracks yet, but I am halfway through. I like how it is inspired by Up, since its also one of my favorite animation movies, and I definitely like that you combine old and new stuff here. The mixing is really good. I believe the audio by itself doesn’t tell the movie’s story, but it could work as a great mixtape by itself. Its fun to listen to , and has some great ideas, I just am not sure if it has a narrative nature for somebody that is not very familiar with the movie. I haven’t seen the movie in years and it was a bit hard for me to see what each track represents, until i saw your pdf. Other than that, its a great mixtape, REALLY well mixed, and I love the fact that it has so many other disney references in there. This could be a whole series of mix tapes, inspired by movies! haha, think about it. With many clips from the actual film. Thank you for sending this, and asking my opinion, I appreciate it. And its really nice to see that you offer it to people, and you have included a great cause/ charity too. Hopefully I will find time to listen to the rest of it soon, I’m just caught up in 3 different things right now.
Thank you again, I wish you the best for your project Greetings from Greece!
I can’t really express how thankful I am for him to take the time out of his day to listen to this project! I have been a huge fan of his for many years now, and I urge you to take the time to look at his mashups, they are top notch and worth downloading for sure!
