Escariot Posted August 21, 2007 Report Share Posted August 21, 2007 Yes folks, after a very long wait, a couple of long conversations, and some copypasta back and forth, VOCR has been revived. Pixietricks and Malcos have both recognized that they are becoming increasingly busy and won't have time to host any rounds for a while, but they'd like DjSammyG and myself to keep things going. We're going to do our best to bring VOCR back to the community. At the moment, we're looking at the next VOCR coming around Early/Mid October. This will give people time to settle into their new schedules. There is a possibility of a September compo, but that's up to SammyG and whether or not we have a backing track. Because we are bringing the compo back, and don't have any backing tracks to use, we are currently seeking community involvement as we search for backing tracks. Anybody that wants to submit a backing track for use in a future VOCR may email the song to us at email@example.com. The rules/guidelines for submitting your own tracks are as follows: a) The song must be previously unreleased Because of the length of time given to entrants (one month), those who create the backing track WILL BE ALLOWED to submit entries for that compo. This will be changed if problems should occur regarding this. Other than that, let it be known that we are currently looking to horde up a lot of songs to use for future VOCRs. This is a great competition, and we really want to keep it going. Post thoughts/questions here. EDIT: What is VOCR, you might ask? (VOCR is not an acronym, don't try to make it into one) VOCR is a vocal "remixing" competition where contestants (either on their own, or collaborating) record and submit some sort of vocal performance over the provided backing track. Vocal Performance is either Lyrical: - Singing - Rapping Non-lyrical: - Humming - Do-Do-Do'ing - Beatboxing? (Not sure on this one) You may apply any effects to the vocals before submitting. Everything else will be explained when the next round is started, or when someone asks a question here. Mainly because... I'm lazy, and don't really want to type anymore... And I'm tired...
