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.

Melty Blood + Mega Man Zero 4 (PRC439) 

posted in People's ReMixing Competition on 1/15/22

Source 1: Melty Blood - Blood Drain (PC)

Source 2: Mega Man Zero 4 - Straight Ahead (GBA)


Source 1: Wassup Thunder

I've never actually played the game this song comes from, but my source is Blood Drain from Melty Blood. This is most amusing, because I'm not really into Japanese Anime or similar styled games, but I sure can appreciate impressive music where I find it! I learned about this song when someone asked me to remix the tune for a project of theirs, and I got captivated by the beautiful composition, it's got an impressive blend of intensity, elegance, and a playful tinge. I'm certain everyone will find something inspiring to play with in this! Also, the song features vocals on the melody, but the midi translates the vocal line pretty well, so unless studionimbus wants to amaze us again with his Japanese 😁, it should be easily put to an instrumental!


Source 2: Souperion

"Straight Ahead" accompanies a mad dash to the control room of an orbital superweapon aiming at the last bastion of humanity. I wasn't too fond of the soundfont of Mega Man Zero 4, but it had a few great pieces like this one. Have at it.
