The next remix war: preliminary details

The next remix war: preliminary details

Postby Stars In Autumn » 08 May 2014 21:13

Hello everyone,

I've been revived to run the next remix war, as planned.

On May 17th we will begin the next remix war, Remix War VIII: Tour Across Equestria.

As with the previous remix wars, this contest is split into two parts. Part one is creating a remix of another brony’s work. The same rules apply as all previous remix wars. One song only, the original must of been produced by a brony (no show songs), and preferably you should remix something that’s not been done 100 times over.

Part two will be a collab challenge. The goal is to find another brony musician who you would like to work with and then create an original song based on a specific location or place in Equestria. This can be based on a town, a landmark, or a region. This song can be any genre, but it should capture some aspect of the place you make the theme for.

I'll open up the contest on the 17th and we'll run the contest for about 3 months. The event will end on August 16th and that will be when we run the sync listen. I plan on talking with the Celestia Radio guys again and seeing if we can hook something up. I know last year we had a bit of an issue but hopefully we can have a better go this year.

I'll post up the official thread on the 17th with all the specific details. PHPony should have the MLR event registration all back up by then. Post any comments or concerns you might have here. Also, if you happen to be a bit of an artist, let me know and I'll see about getting some official art for the remix war, like the last 2 years.

Thanks,
Stars In Autumn

Wow, nice :)
3 months to work, that is quite a lot of time. And it ends just one week before BUCK... any chance you'll move it up a week and then something happens at BUCK? :3 probably not, idk, just a probably bad idea.

Still, 3 months is a lot of time. Last time it was just 1 month. Not complaining, but any reason for that?

Yeah, I got a lot of flak for making it one month. So it was suggested to make it 3 months.

As for making something happen at BUCK, that'd be cool but it would exclude a lot of us and it just isn't the kind of event that should take place in one location.

Sounds like fun!
I've made an entire album based on locations inside, outside, and all around Equestria so that's nothing new for me, now I can do it with someone else!

What am I even doing here?
I make art, not music...
