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.

Freedom Planet - Aqua Tunnel 1 (PRC449) 

posted in People's ReMixing Competition on 6/17/22

Source: Freedom Planet - Aqua Tunnel 1 (PS4)


"Aqua Tunnel (1) is a charming track full of spunky beats. It's from the game Freedom Planet, a Sonic-like platformer with both great tribute to the 2D sonic games and its own originality. It's got a great soundtrack all around. Aqua Tunnel is the game's 'sewer' themed level, where a little dog goes tromping around some aqueducts fighting slimy monsters. This track's rhythm and beat should be great fun to play with, coupled with its Eastern flairs!"
