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.

"Hi,

I understand that I have to submit the next track for PRC374 ! So, I think Living Failures from Bloodborne OST is a good idea, nobody has remixed it already. (in the OCR list)

A link to this track : https://youtu.be/NiboHWwr12M

And a midi file : http://gamesheetmusic.com/music/DrJekyllMrHeil/Bloodborne - Living Failures.mid

I guess that's all. Thank you for organizing all this."

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.
