Throwing out a reminder - less than 2 weeks before the deadline for this!


Also, a recent question came up about medleys - yes, medleys of game music from either the same or different series are allowed. Submissions do not need to be arrangements of just one game track.


All submissions can be sent to: bandbattle@originalsoundversion.com

All entries have been collected as far as I have seen. If you submitted and did not get a email confirmation, let me know ASAP.



So the listening party will be Friday, September 9th starting at 2:30pm at Panels 2 - Aspen. We will have the competition listening party, and then a general DoD hangout after. We also will be streaming live on http://www.8bitx.com/.

Hope to see people there!

I want to thank everyone who entered, voted, attended the listening party live or online (despite the online stream being delayed a bit, #blameWill). If there is another MAG Labs/Classic, this might be something we continue doing! (though with more notice for bands to enter.) <3
