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.

"Ok i feel like another Contra coming along! Contra deserves more love besides the NES game, which you know...like there's more classic OST's than just that...

The Game is Contra: Shattered Shoulder and the track name is....ehem. Super Robot Powered Yokozuna Jr. (A boss fight, that looks like it came from Contra: Hard Corps)

Some title eh?

I didn't pick it for the title. It's a legit banger, that definitely works in the club. Some kind of Hard Trance maybe? On the plus side it also has a lot of rich atmosphere in the middle section, so it's a blank canvas for anything to add. Also there is a lot of dynamic push and pull. For how simple it is, there is so much you can do!

It's a boss fight, so i'd see why it's this intense! Good luck to you all!

Here's the track:

Deadline is Wednesday February 26th 2020, 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/49128-prc404-super-eternal-robot-secret-of-mana-contra/

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.

To participate it is enough to only remix one of the sources, as written in the 'Multiple Source Rounds' description at the rules site. But there's a bonus of 3 points for remixing both in one song.
