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.

AWDS - Sasha's Theme (MnP98)  Active Meat and Potatoes VGM Remix Competition
1 week, 6 days ago

MnP #98: Sasha's Theme (from Advance Wars: Dual Strike) (DS):

It's been an interesting year! We started by going through a
strange zone in an equally strange world and then warped through many
more strange worlds (even a maniacal mansion), and, like clockwork in an RPG,
arrived in a forest of monsters. But, with our unbreakable
determination, evil has finally been vanquished! Now, as the season turns to
winter and snow falls, it's time to unwind and enjoy the holidays! :)

With that (attempt at a "story") said, I'd like to submit Sasha's theme from Advance Wars: Dual Strike as the
source for MnP round #98 in keeping with a kind-of wintery tradition. To the best of my
knowledge, this song has not been selected in any previous rounds or in the PRC.
You may wonder how a Wars game character's theme would
be wintery / Christmas-y, but give the song about 30 seconds (if the first
few notes don't convince you). Whether it's a cover or a slight reinterpretation / expansion, I'm
looking forward to seeing what you all come up with, and thanks!
