"Well, then, it'll be "Traverse Town" from Kingdom Hearts (PS2). Love that source, it can be very creative."

-Chernabogue

MIDI

Deadline

October 24, 2:00 pm, Friday (Pacific)

Voting End

October 26, 8:00 pm, Sunday

Submit your remix Here when completed.

**If you have technical difficulty with account activation at ThaSauce, please contact Ramaniscence via pm**

MISSION STATEMENT

The goal of Compo:MnP is to promote that "meat and potatoes" conservative approach to remixing: this includes the mood and composition of source tunes. It is up to the remixer to create their own personalization, or to simply give it a sound upgrade. Moreover, the compo is a great opportunity to hone your remixing skills and give video game music the respect that is due. SOME reinterpretation is recommended, but not required.

MnP Instructions/Guidelines

1. Covers and Sound Upgrades are permitted.

2. Most or all of the source notes must be present (but not necessarily in the exact same order), secondly the mood (energy, pacing, feelings being conveyed etc) should also be retained. For example, a source tune that is fast-paced and energetic that's remixed into a mellow/chill-out theme would not work for this competition.

3. If you decide to do a genre swap (i.e. symphonic to techno), make sure that the conditions of #2 are met.

4. Submissions must be at a maximum of 20mb (keeping in step with ThaSauce's file size max).

5. Only 1 entry per participant. Previous winner cannot participate but can submit a BONUS entry.

6. All competitors and voters must adhere to the rules stated within: Competition Code and Conduct

MISC/TIPS

- When picking a source tune, make sure it has a MIDI to make ppl's lives easier.

- In-game sound FX are permitted, so long as they don't comprise the whole track (i.e. replacing entire MIDI tracks with just sfx)

- Certain sad or moody source tunes don't have drums or percussion for a reason. So keeping it that way may be the easiest way to retain much of the original feel, such as

JUST AS A GENERAL WARNING OF DOOOOM and STUFF

Round 25 will be Howlowe'ween themed, so after this round, the winner MUST PICK A SCARY SOURCE, or else the big bad voodoo viking vampire ghost of doom will slap you on the wrist and frown very menacingly at you.

lol. IKR!

but I'm kinda stuck on whether or not to do an orchestral piece since this awesome song is already orchestral... Ohh well, can't wait to work on it either way.

But... wouldn't 2 weeks put us almost at Halloween? So the next one will mostly go past Halloween. :-P This would've been the one to make a Halloween theme.

I have pledged to enter so I will, and I think I have an idea for the approach. edit: Though it might not me quite fitting for M-n-P, I'll have to see.

Doing one tonight.

Basically this. I don't know how much sleep I'll get tonight but frankly it's the only real way I'll get something started and even close to finishing...

Hmmm...IF and I mean IF everyone submits there stuff within a week, I may shorten this round so I can phase in the Howlowe'en round quicker. If not then no biggie, a late Howlowe'en themed round is better than none.

Well, I haven't had much time doing music lately, but perhaps I'll enter, just to have the chance for a scary source tune. Ok, if anyone else wins I'll be interested in the next one nonetheless

This might be interesting in 3/4 or 6/8 . Just in case I don't have time to enter, it's an idea for people.

I was thinking of going to the opposite direction: kill the swing feel and go strict 4/4. That's one reason I'm worried it won't be that M-n-P.

You should give it a shot, even if it's more distant from the source! :)

Okay, I'm working on something that's very different from my normal stuff. I still have some doubts if I can do the style any justice but pretty sure I'm gonna submit something for this nice source track :)

I have a start. I wanted to reimagine the tune as a 80s/90s side-scrolling shooter theme. I am failing.

That's going a little too far reinterpretation-wise for MnP anyways imo :nicework:

Guidelines updated, as I felt they could use some more reworking (again) :lol: - I will also adhere to my own rules when voting better - I would ask that voters try to think MnP when voting as well :nicework:

(but if you already have something in the works that is contrary to the rules here, don't panic and submit it anyway just worry about it for the next round)
