Hello there! Welcome to Newgrounds Remix Competition 2018! (NGRMC) I’m Zophar and I will be your host. This is the first time for this competition. If this competition lives onto next year, then maybe a few other judges will join. But it’s just me. What this competition is: You are given a four (4) bar melody and you have to remix it into a full song. You will have one month to make the remix. October 1, 2018 is the deadline. So submit your remixes by then!
You have to remix the melody. You can change it up a bit but it has to have some elements of the melody in it. If you submit a song that has a totally different melody or just a completely different song, then your song will not enter through.
Your song must be in between 2:00 - 5:00 minutes. I will accept it if it’s 1:55 or 3:05 but nothing over those limits.
You must submit it before the deadline. If you don’t then your song won’t make it through. If you have any problems PM me so we can discuss the details.
This must be ORIGINAL WORK! No taking copyrighted samples. This remix must be original using the melody I gave you. If I find out you used copyrighted samples you will not move on further.
No collaborating. This needs to be an independent project. If you’re in a band or music group and you still want to participate but you can’t because you can’t do it without your other member’s help, PM me and we’ll discuss.
Your remix can be any music genre but don’t make it a solo instrument. Have at least 3 instruments in the song.
How to submit: You enter your song by copy and pasting the link into your post your writing on the bbs on this thread. You can give a little description. A description is not required but it would be helpful. Then submit. You are allowed to make edits to the song after you submit it until the deadline. Just tell me by replying to your submission that you made edits.
Here is the melody. I took a screenshot of it and submitted a audio file of it so you can hear just what it sounds like. The recommended tempo is 100 - 140. (Tempo of the demo is 120bpm.) And the Key is G# Minor.
Good luck to everybody!
