[unofficial] Omnimaga Music Contest 2014!
« on: August 08, 2014, 10:33:58 pm »
With all the great music writers on Omni, I was surprised to see a lack of music contests in the contests board. That being said, I don't think this will be a thing to conflict with other contests, but considering most of the music writers here are not in Cemetech Contest 12, this will start immediately, and end before the month is out. So without further ado: the rules and description!

The Unofficial Omnimaga Music Contest 2014! Theme: "Chill"

The Challenge:
Write a song, of any length and any instrumentation, that represents the theme "Chill"
Songs can be done using any program, recorded live, or both.
Songs can be instrumental or have lyrics, if you wish.
Users may submit as many songs as they like.

Rules:
Songs must be original.
Songs must have more than one voice, though. Just a melody does not qualify as a piece of music here, sorry.
Songs writers must post in this topic that they are competing by Saturday, August 16 at 11:59 EDT
Completed songs must be posted in this topic, either as an attachment in the form of an mp3 file (I know it's not lossless, but this is in order to stay under 1 MB easily) or as a link to the song in any format playable by VLC for download and/or for streaming.
Completed songs must be posted in this topic by Saturday, August 30 at 11:59 EDT

Community Votes:
Once a song is posted in this topic, I will link to that post with the username and song title beside it here.
Rankings will be decided by community votes in a poll attached to this topic once the first song has been submitted. Users will be allowed to change their vote.
Users may not vote for themselves. Doing so will result in a disqualification of all songs submitted by said user.

The Theme:
The theme is "Chill."
This means that the song must be able to make someone listen to it and say: "This is chill," or something of that nature.
An example song I made (and this is not the best example, but it is an example nonetheless) is here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_rRGhX27sY-N2lBUGZ6QzZDdlU/edit?usp=sharing

I will, in fact compete in this competition, since I have no input but a single vote, as much as anyone else, but not with that song.

Good luck, and have fun!

Oooh, interesting. Can we remix?

Also the fact I posted my contest at the same time as pimath is probably coincidential.

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

No, you may not make remixes (Music Showcase rules prohibit them, iirc (EDIT: only if the file is on omni itself... still no remixes)). I should probably say in the post that the song must be original.

This could be interesting. I don't know if I'll participate since I tend to have troubles getting inspiration under command or by sticking to a specific theme but I'll see what I can do if I get motivation to make a song.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Is this chilly enough?

On a more serious note, I finished a rough draft for my entry. It's called "The Hidden Staircase"

Okay. I'd be interested in what you'd do in this, if you choose to participate, considering you write power metal predominately.

I might participate. With something. Together with my various musical instruments.

I think the closest example of a chill song I ever wrote is "The Most Relaxing Song Ever" without the speedcore parts. Same for my other song called "Shut the Hell Up Mother*bleeping* Son of *bloop*", again without the extreme speedcore/gabber parts.

But again, it depends what you mean by chill because musical-wise it can be one of the following:
1) Music you listen to when chilling out with friends at their home (and it could even mean black metal)
2) Music you listen to when being stoned (usually rap, dubstep or any song that talks about pot)
3) Music that is actually relaxing (Slayer, Amon Amarth, Cannibal Corpse... oh wait I mean ambient/lounge/chillout/ballads :P)
4) The chillout music genre

3 is probably the best representation of the theme imo, but this is an open-ended, user-voted, contest. I would leave what people think of the theme up to the voters.

Just a reminder that sign ups are closed. Juju, LDStudios and I are the only competitors, unless DJ competes (which is unlikely, based on his replies, but I'll let him enter if he wants to, since he did post in this topic about potentially competing).
