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.

Grind Stormer - Night Bird (PRC409)  Active

posted in People's ReMixing Competition 3 days, 11 hours ago

Source: Grind Stormer - Night Bird (Genesis)

 

V・V also known as Grind Stormer outside of Japan is the first game programmed by Tsuneki Ikeda, co-founder of Cave, the legendary STG developper. It was influenced by Salamander (Life Force in NA) and is notable for being the last Toaplan game to feature an FM synthesis soundtrack, composed by Mashiro Yuge. 'Night Bird' a pretty intense boss theme featuring an aggressive bassline, a soaring lead and a clear backing supported by a steady groove which should translate well into various styles of arrangement. Hope you'll have fun with this one.

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.
