Since no one was declared a winner in the last round of the tune contest, I and PixelPerfect have mutually decided to draw the competition and start a new one. PixelPerfect seemed fine to let me start the new comp so if he's still fine with it, I 'll get things going.
Ok I have no idea how to explain the idea that I have for this competition so I'll explain it best I can and if anyone doesn't know what I mean then they can ask. I have some examples the bottom to illustrate my idea.
Firstly and essentially, I want you to do a cover of an existing song. Anything of your choosing!
But more importantly, this is how I want you to create it.
I want you to make the song relaxing.
I want it to be electronic.
I want it to sound retro.
I want it to sound upbeat.
Ok, not clear? Here's an example.
This band is called the moog cookbook. They are awesome. They released two albums in the 90s of covers.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQYNcZmbOEc
It is a cover of Soundgarden's 'Black Hole Sun'.
That's basically what I want you to do.
You can do whatever you want really, but you will get extra credit if you're track is this:
-Makes me happy
-Makes me relaxed
-You take a more hardcore sounding song and making it something palatable. Eg. Make a metallica song sound like a tangerine dream song.
Yeah this is pretty convoluted, but hopefully you get my point. Questions?
I just remembered a couple of things.
1. I've been wanting to do this comp for a while and I just remembered that I made a track a while ago as an example of what I wanted to hear. http://www.box.net/shared/mkiqhqxtji
2.Don't tell us the track that you are doing a cover of. It will be fun to guess.
EDIT (part 2)
The deadline is the 1st of March
