Portal is a first person puzzle game based almost entirely off the mechanic that you have a gun that can shoot two portals that let you travel from place to place via them. It's full of whit and charm with the background story going on, but mainly it's all about "You have somewhere to go. Get there. Don't know how, but you have this portal gun thing." Portal 2 was similar, but longer, more refined, and had even more witty story there in the background if you wanted it. Classic games, must play stuff, IMO.
So I don't know where the idea to mash these songs together...and then do it in a pop-bluegrass came from. But I did it... I know a lot of people seem to think these songs are played out (especially Still Alive). But hey, they're well written songs. Interesting chord changes, memorable melodies, creative instrumentation, yadda yadda. And I wanted to tribute these songs and the games. Hope you dig it.
OH AND ONE LAST THING ALMOST FORGOT. Another VGM-er did some vocals in this song. He actually recorded the whole song doing the harmony slightly above, and did a good job. Unfortunately I wasn't able to use much of it, and he didn't have time to film video either. But his voice is in there in the choruses on the line "That's what I'm couting on." So thanks to him. Here's his channel if you're interested in checking him out.
