V A P O R W A V E Collab 2016-02-14 14:38:19
Hey there Newgrounds, I'm puttin together a little collab.
Vaporwave is a musical micro-genre that emerged in the early 2010s among Internet communities. It is characterized by a nostalgic fascination with retro cultural aesthetics, video games, technology and advertising, and often involves the fusion of modern popular music with lounge, smooth jazz and elevator music. Musical sampling is prevalent within the genre, with samples often pitched, layered or altered in classic chopped and screwed style. Central to the style is often a critical or satirical preoccupation with consumer capitalism, popular culture, and new-age tropes.
Using themes like this id like to string together a lengthy video of experimental flashes.
However not to be limited to musically driven pieces, any sort of short or idea that stays within the theme will be gladly accepted!
Piece must be 1920x1080 and 24 fps
No time minimum or maximum, you can even submit multiple pieces if you'd like.
(however be sure to put a good amount of work into each submission please!!)
My biggest rule however is DO NOT USE MACINTOSH PLUS - リサフランク420 / 現代のコンピュ
If youve even just barely heard of vaporwave/ net art then you have heard this track. There is so much more to explore within the genre and theme. Look up the vaporwave tag on bandcamp or hell, slow down and chop up a song of your choosing!
The deadline will be March 31st! Hope to see a lot of interesting submissions!
