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.

Adventure Island 3 (NES) - Boss (PRC416) 

posted in People's ReMixing Competition on 10/16/20

Source:  Adventure Island 3 (NES) - Boss Theme

 

"This month's source is kindly provided by purplecowadoom. (Yes this is a recurring thing.)

This request was 3 years old - 2017.

Here's what he wrote:

"I've never been able to find any attempts to cover this song, but every once in a while when I was a kid playing the Gameboy port of it (called Adventure Island II...talk about confusing) I'd find myself trying to hum/beatbox this. I feel like there might be a middle ground for this: somewhere between something like Theophany's Woodfall Temple arrangement and some kind of silly tribal beatbox kind of thing. Or it could just go full silly tribal beatbox thing."

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):

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.
