Learn. Create. Compete.

Compo is a slang word for "composition competition" commonly used by the arrangement community. It is derrived from the demoscene competitions by the same name.

Contrary to this, compos are less of a competition and more of an excerise in composition abilites. Each compo has it's own unique format and guidelines and while some are as short as 1 hour, others can last anywhere from a month, to a few months.

It's important to remember that the primary purpose of compos are to hone your skills and abilites by working within, sometimes very constricting, guidelines. These techiniques have proven essential to the growth of countless musicians.

Remember: the only way to lose a compo, is to not participate.

Selecting one of these is fine but picking a different request is also allowed. If you do, please post a link to the thread from the Ocremix Request which you used (with starting date before 1-1-2020) in this thread or in the song description at ThaSauce.

If you find a MIDI (or a better MIDI) from one of the sources above you are more than welcome to post it here as well. Vgmusic will have more MIDI's from some of these sources.



Deadline is Wednesday January 29th 2019, 10:59 AM ThaSauce Time (18:00 UTC, 20:00 GMT).

Check the following site for the rules:
https://sites.google.com/site/bambombim/prc

Check the Ocremix thread for more information (you can post questions there. It is also the place to post a song if you're not able to use this page):
https://ocremix.org/community/topic/49044-prc403-ocremixs-request-songs-prc-anniversary-round/

After uploading, please check if your song plays and can be downloaded and played without problems.
Only upload MP3 Files.

It is not necessary to use ThaSauce. You can upload the song anywhere you want, but I must have a download link. So if you use SoundCloud, don't forget to allow downloads, otherwise your song does not count as an entry or bonus mix. I will still use ThaSauce as a possible place to submit songs and upload all the songs to the ThaSauce page to have the songs at one central place.

If ThaSauce is down, please also submit the song somewhere else with a download link and post the link in the Ocremix Thread.
