Round 2: Knuckes Chaotix 'Over Oceans Blue'

Here we go, my first time hosting this competition, so bear with me! Background track is a remix of the 'seascape' track from Knuckles Chaotix soundtrack.

Here are the rules for this round, slightly altered from last time, but mostly copied from Pixie's rules:

  • You must use my instrumental track for the background. The track may not be changed— only added upon with your vocals and effects, or spliced if you're going for an a cappella section.
  • You may choose to sing the source melody as it already stands, if your range is that wide. Original melodies and harmonies are applauded, however. Don't be afraid to take some chances!
  • You can write original lyrics or sing without words; it's up to you! Additionally, if you'd like to sing with lyrics but can't think of any, you may collaborate with someone else so long as you give them credit. No borrowing from other sources unless you run it by me first.
  • Texts for songs with lyrics must be included in the email to me. And if your song is in a foreign language, an English translation is required.
  • Effects are more than welcome, but the main vocals may not be vocoded.
  • Auto-pitch correction will not be allowed. Not when I'm hosting this compo. If pitch correction has been used (and you are caught), you will be disqualified.

Entries: All entries are due by 3rd March 2007, which is about a month from now.

MP3 submissions should be tagged and sent to themalcos@gmail.com, and may be hosted online or included as an attachment. If you send me your track well before the deadline and then decide you wanna make some changes, that's totally cool. It's never too late to send again before the round closes. Do not post your track in this thread, however! We don't want anyone to "draw inspiration" from your original ideas, and plus... more suspense. :D At the end of the month, I will host all of the tracks on my website and edit the first post for everyone to see. I'm really copying Pixie's post here!

Collabs: Pixie and I have discussed this issue, and have decided that, in order to keep this competition fair and somewhat balanced, collaborations will be limited to only 2 vocalists.

Voting: Entries are now in, and so it's voting time! All entrants must participate as well, in the spirit of comradery, and cannot vote on their own mix. Everyone will choose their top three entries, listing them in order from most favorite to least favorite, and PM their votes to me. #1 choices will receive three points, #2 choices two, and #3 choices one. Make sense? We won't actually be rating the mixes on each of the following criteria, but I ask that you keep these things in mind while you vote:

  • Creativity (personal flair, interesting harmonies, original lyrics, etc)
  • Vocal execution (pitch, rhythm, confidence, etc)
  • Production (bad/hissy recordings, dry mixing, etc)

We want to reward people for getting out there, even if they think their singing could use some improvement. So don't just vote for your favorite vocalist. Everybody deserves a chance! Don't forget that with each vote, you must also write a least a sentence saying why you voted that way, what you liked about the vocal performance etc. These will be used as feedback for the vocalists when the competition is over. Voting ends Sunday March 11th, winners will be announced on the 12th.

Whohoo. About time round 2 began.

It's been a long while since I played this game, but I have to say it's one of my top 5 best Sonic games ever. I also remember some very enjoyable music.

Very nice remix, Malcos. It has a lot of ambient and hip-hop sounds.

DarkChocobo and I will once again be working together on a submission piece. So mark us down on the list of participants.

I'm really digging this piece, Malcos. It lends itself to vocals even better than the piece they used in VOCR 1.

Good luck, everybody! Can't wait to hear what you people can come up with.

Is the name of the original literally "Seascape"? I need reference material. :)

Yeah that's the name of the original, I'm sure you can do a bit of searching to find the original track, I'm not sure if it would be legal for me to host it.

Joyous. I was a little late for the first one, and I don't really have proper recording equipment, but I'll give it a shot. I'll message you if things should happen to change

Hence why I didn't ask you to. Don't worry, I've got places to find it. :)

Nice track! Due date is the day before my 21st birthday and it's gonna be a busy few weeks, but I think I'll be able to put something together. Count me in! :D

EDIT:

By the way, your first post still says "Round 1"... hehehehehehe.

Before your 21st birthday? So I guess you'll be busy after your birthday, eh? (Possibly drinking alcohol?? =0)

But I agree, the first round was pretty intense. There were a lot of submissions, but I think that might also scare away some other people too. More competition, the harder it is to win. But it should just be about trying your best and having fun.. though winning a cash prize doesn't hurt either. ^_^;;

Wow, this is a really great track Malcos. And from a beloved game soundtrack (at least to me) to boot. I think that I'll try my hand at this compo.

*hopes that he will not regret decision later*

I have a whole bunch of melodies and lyrics written for this already. I really got into it over the past few days. I can't say for sure yet whether or not I'll enter the contest though. My hardware is still on the fritz.

I don't know if I'm gonna be able to get something in for this one. Student teaching's been very time consuming, and I haven't even gotten a chance to start on anything with this yet, even though I'm on February vacation! None-the-less, I will try to get something done, even if it's lyric-less.

EDIT: Scratch that, I got something!

Well, I can't do it anymore... My mic port is... fouled... and I'm painfully sick...

We should totally collab next round, when you're better and fix your mic port!

Hope you feel better right....now!

As much as I love the source tune this round, looks like I'm not gonna have time to come up with anything. It's been a busy week, and this weekend is my 21st birthday so my mom's gonna be in town and yada yada. Sorrrrryyyy. :<
