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.

Jet Force Gemini - S.S. Anubis (PRC388)  Active People's ReMixing Competition
15 hours, 39 minutes ago

Source: Jet Force Gemini (N64) - S.S. Anubis

"Hey there!

Thank you so much for the kind words on my remix of Starlight Highway, I'm glad people were able to enjoy it.

For my source I'd like to pick something from one of my favorite obscure games, Jet Force Gemini for the N64. In particular, the track S.S. Anubis. This hits all the marks of a song ripe for great remixes to me. Fantastic rhythms, melodies, and harmonic progressions. There's even some pretty cool percussion and hybrid orchestral elements that delight me to hear in an N64 soundtrack! I can't wait to hear what people can do with it."
