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.

336th 2HourTrackSundays Event (2HTS336)  Completed

posted in 2HourTrackSundays 1 week, 5 days ago

The long awaited first Sunday of the month has arrived!

 

As you all know, this event has been going since the dawn of time (some even claim it was what caused the Big Bang in the first place…), which means we are slowly but surely getting old. Have you recently felt a weird pain in a part of body you didn’t know existed before? Did your belly get a bit bigger? You probably have hair popping up in weird places as well.. Fear not, you are not alone.

 

Plenty of people have found themselves in a similar situation as they get older and the one thing that helps everybody cope is some good ol’ fashioned humour. But not just any humour will do - everyone knows that a well timed dad joke is peak comedy and the best thing humanity has to offer. This is why this week’s special theme is: DAD JOKE.

 

In order to participate, just type in !dadjoke in our Discord channel and our trusty 2HTSTimeBot will come up with a dad joke just for you. Read the joke, have a chuckle or two and then get to work! The joke you receive will serve as your inspiration for this week’s song. The way you implement your joke is completely up to you, get creative!

 

Keep the joke you receive a secret and share it once your song is being played during the listening party.

 

Please also keep in mind that this is a special challenge! Before "giving up" and getting a second joke, try to look at things from a different perspective. Focus on a single word, or the complete opposite of that word; the mood it communicates you; think of a movie, or an advertisement; write about a world where tiny little people only dance to songs with that theme. Or write about yourself writing this song - anything goes!

 

Have fun!

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.
