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.

Panel De Pon - Lip's Theme (PRC427) 

posted in People's ReMixing Competition 1 day, 11 hours ago

Source: Panel De Pon (SNES) - Lip's Theme


"I choose "Lip's Theme" from Panel de Pon for PRC427. Panel de Pon is the Japanese version of the SNES's Tetris attack, where the cast is composed of fairies with varying dominions. Lip's is flowers. It's a plucky, spunky song, just ripe for remixing."

Magical Starsign - Bena Rikashi (MnP124)

Compo: MnP (Meat 'n Potatoes)

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:


"Here's an obscure tune from my youth! Not many have heard of Magical Starsign, an old RPG on the nintendo DS, but you should hear the track Bena Rikashi, the theme of a bustling city on a wind planet! It's short (only 30 seconds of material), simple, sweet, and gots lots of room for interpretation!" - Wassup Thunder

Source: Mega Man X5 (PS1) - Mattrex / Burn Dinorex Stage


"Wazzap, I finally picked a source for PRC round 426. By the way, thanks for running this compo, I've had a great time participating and learning from everyone else involved!


Much as I hate to break a streak of obscure yet amazing sources, I'm turning up the heat by choosing Megaman X5's Mattrex/Burn Dinorex stage theme! Cause it's been a while since PRC has done a mega man title, and I'm 95% sure OCR has never done THIS track from the game. It's got a lovely combination of airy rock elements and flowy synths and some fun chords. This oughta fan the flames of creativity for people this round! Har har, fire puns."

Week 14 (90MC014) 

posted in 90 Minute Compo on 4/26/21

The Feywilds, Faerie Lands, or more familiarly: the Lost Woods. An ancient boreal land brimming with natural wild magic, a borderland between the mundane and supernatural worlds. Where skeptics see only atomic interaction to explain the will o' the wisps, those with understanding see playful sprites and wayward fey folk. The magics in the region cause the flora to grow to exceptional size; imagine oaks that would put the mighty redwood to shame, flower patches to rival the great barrier reef, and grass that could, in a pinch, be used as a blade. Tonight's theme is The Feywilds.
