Question about usage of classical music in a remix


Recommended Posts

Hello,

in the rules it says:

3. Any incorporation or arrangement of source material not from games (mainstream, classical, etc.) should be extremely limited.

So I basically wanted to ask - if a source would imho SCREAM for a certain classical theme to be inserted in way that is a "citation" (quickly bring the theme for rather humorous purposes to show the composer must have thought of this theme, then move away from it), not taking more than 20 seconds in a piece that is around 2-3 minutes, would that be ok?

many greetings

sure, that'd be fine.

the idea behind the rule is that people can't do a crossover where it's mostly the classical work with some, say, Sonic layered on top of it. it's the idea behind the rule that matters, more than the percentage. if the mix is nothing but classical music plus midi, it's still a midirip. you just stole the other stuff too.
