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.

Bomberman Hero - Redial (PRC423) 

posted in People's ReMixing Competition 4 days, 9 hours ago

Source: Bomberman Hero OST (N64)

Composer(s): June Chikuma

Song: "Redial"

Blurb:


*Stretches* "After such a huge, complex, fairly serious tone presented in PRC 421, and the more somber take of PRC 422, I wanted to do something more...upbeat, a bit simplistic, but glorious and catchy to hear nonetheless. I had SO MANY choices going around in my head, though! Should I pick something from Mystical Ninja: Starring Goemon? Or Shinobi III? Strider 2? Quest 64? Mischief Makers? Be a bit hammy (since it's nearly Valentine's Day) and do, like, "Candy's Music Shop" theme from Donkey Kong 64? The list was endless--but after having a lie back and listening to a certain OST, (and the remix of "Zip", one of my fave Bomberman songs on OCR,) my mind kept coming back to this--and I had to do it. I also saw that Super Bomberman was used a few times in PRC (and in MnP, Bomberman 64's "Green Gardens" theme was used as well), but was sad to see there was only the one OCR remix for Bomberman Hero and none anywhere else!


This priceless, underrated little gem of a 64 game / song needs some love, I believe. So let's put our thinking caps on, ladies and gents, and do something cool with the stylish Drum 'n Bass takings of 'Redial'.


Also, if someone can do up or find a way better MIDI source than this one, please say (the one I found is a bit lacking and weird to me, lol.)"

KATAM - Candy Constellation (MnP122)

Compo: MnP (Meat 'n Potatoes)

Congratulations to Souperion for winning the last round. As a result, he get's to pick the source for round 122. Here's what he had to say:

 

"Feel a bit odd having won a round that featured a spirited, upbeat song by making a slower remix, so let's do some Kirby music! Kirby and the Amazing Mirror: Candy Constellation, specifically. It's a real fun piece, one of my favorites from that little gem." - Souperion

 

GAME: Kirby and the Amazing Mirror (GBA)

SOURCE: Candy Constellation

Week 3 (90MC003) 

posted in 90 Minute Compo on 2/7/21

The lifeblood of any frontier town: the pub. Maybe it's a saloon or tavern type with mercenaries and vagabonds idly chatting about their exploits. Or perhaps it's the local watering hole for the town's middle class, with a few connections to the seedy underbelly and an unauthorized jack to the cyberscape for those with enough credits. Either way, bottoms up!

 

Tonight's theme is "The Pub."
