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.

Congratulations to Wassup Thunder for winning the last round! As a result, he get's to choose this month's MnP source! Here's what he had to say about his pick: 


"I'm picking the Ancient Grove from Spyro the Eternal Night (GBA). I remember getting this game as a present from a cousin, and was pretty impressed with Spyro's new moves. There was something immensely satisfying about the purple dragon going medieval and clawing your way through the stages almost like a savage beast. Which seems appropriate, as the Legend of Spyro trilogy seemed aimed at making Spyro a bit darker and more dramatic than his earlier, playful days. Though the games had mixed reviews, at least I'll always remember going WWE as Spyro.

The soundtrack also aimed for cinematic orchestra. This track a great air of mystery and budding adventure, with those harp arpeggios and strings swelling and fading out. Should be fun to work with!" - Wassup Thunder
