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.

FF Tactics - Undefeated Heart (PRC433) 

posted in People's ReMixing Competition on 9/9/21

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance: Undefeated Heart


"I chose a song from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance: Undefeated Heart. Tactics Advance was a big part of my childhood gaming, I spent dozens of hours on the spin off game and fondly remember the playful OST. My siblings and I used to joke that the fight music sounded too goofy to battle to, but it all contains some of the signature grandeur of the legendary FF series. This track still has a playful vibe to me, but some resolute heroism as well. I bet we'll get some great compositions with this piece!"

Granstream Saga - Cut Your Way (MnP127) 

posted in Meat and Potatoes VGM Remix Competition on 9/4/21

Compo: MnP (Meat 'n Potatoes)

Congratulations to Coloradoweeks for winning the last round! As a result, she get's to choose this month's MnP source! Here's what she had to say about her pick: 


"i chose this song mostly for nostalgia reasons. The Granstream Saga was the first RPG iíve ever played, and iím a little sad to see that over the years it hasnít gotten much love as some other RPGs of that era. i couldnít remember much of the details about this game, but as soon as i heard the battle theme, all of the memories started flooding back. itís a pretty short loop, but itís a fun piece thatís jam packed with some really interesting bits. i canít wait to hear how you all interpret this piece!" - Coloradoweeks
