Your goal in the CACAOPHONY is to write amazing original music, qualify into the final round, and win!
The way that you qualify is to score over 100 points in the qualification rounds.
In the qualifications rounds, you’ll write a song. Once the deadline is up, everyone will listen and vote on everyone’s songs. I will announce the results after the deadline is over, and the top 15 or so scorers will receive points based on how well they did.
Main Round 1 (3/3 - 3/11)
Bonus Round! (3/12 - 3/16)
Main Round 2 (3/17 - 3/25)
Bonus Round! 2 (3/26 - 3/30)
Qualification round 3 (3/31 - 4/8)
Bonus Round! 3 (4/9 - 4/13)
Final (Bonus) Round (4/16-4/19)
FINAL ROUND (4/12-5/5) (two weeks!)
There are two types of rounds:
1. NORMAL rounds. Weekend to weekend rounds where you write any unique piece of music. These give the majority of your points and will be the meat and potatoes of the Cacaophony.
2. BONUS rounds. These will be short (5 or less days) and will require you to write music with weird rules. For example, maybe you'll have to write a piece that's the same forwards and backwards, or a piece that only uses white noise for percussion, or maybe something totally different! The actual rules won't be announced until the start of the bonus round.
You do not need to participate in every round! If you’re busy, or need a break, you can skip out without penalty.
Are collabs allowed? YES, up to two people!
Can I submit 500 songs? No.
Can I use an old project, or borrow a melody, or... All songs must be original and made from scratch! Evidence of the contrary will be a DQ!
