Title: 2021 Music Contest?
Post by: BMC_War Machine on April 03, 2021, 06:54:27 PM
Hey folks!  Anyone (still around lol) interested in doing another music compo?  We haven't had one of these in a LONG time.  8)  I'm anxious to show off how far my recording has come since the last competitions and i'm also anxious to see where everyone else is in there's as well  8)

Wellp, I might come up with something, but I can't guarantee anything. Do you have a particular theme on your mind?

I'm totally ok with starting a new contest. :)
It has been a long long while since the last one.

Got any themes you guys want to explore?

This is my take on a theme.
I want to hear a seasonal remix. (choose one from Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter)
Extra precaution: if using tunes from DOS, don't make Winter (duh)

I've been putting together a half-assed recording studio for my trombone / other instruments, so I'd probably definitely be down

personally I like the idea of castlevania music based on latin jazz / flamenco themes

Tbh I don't realy know how to represent seasons via music(except winter = bells hehe), but I'm down for whatever.

The only theme that came to my mind was to rework a stage theme into a boss theme or something like that. But dunno, seems kinda generic to me. I'm down for whatever you guys come up with.

Still, have a few exams coming fast so I've yet to see if I'll actualy catch some time for this thing.

I've no time to participate, but I suggest you keep it simple and do Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night music contest. At least then you can work with some new material rather than trying to come up with a fresh way to do CV songs that have already been done nearly every way imaginable.

If there will be judges I can offer to judge.

Honestly, not a bad idea. Would we also include those 2 Curse of the Moon games?

Oooh! I agree with Belmontoya, Bloodstained music (I suggest ayy music from any game in the Bloodstained universe) is a better option!

I would just like to ask, what type of remixing do you guys want for Bloodstained music?

Honestly whatever, as long as it doesn't require too much recording since both of my guitars are bummed. We could just make the only rule that the song's from Bloodstained, or is that not how these work? Dunno, this is my first music contest(if we actualy manage to work something out lol).

Feel free to browse this contest thread for the previous music contests. All music contests are marked by this picture (https://castlevaniadungeon.net/forums/Themes/CVForum-Curve/images/post/orb.gif)
The first ever music contest is on page 3.

For the theme of the bloodstained remix, for simplicity's sake, do you guys want to remix a normal theme (hero theme, supportive character theme, stage theme, etc.) and transform it into a boss theme?

I just need someone else to second the motion for this theme, in order for me to make the proper contest page. :)
