Event id #2396 : Je suis #Drax music compo

Welcome all dear copycats! It's our second meeting ;) This time only 3 weeks for entries - should be enough.

Compo's premise is as simple as that:

You have to create a tune which imitates Drax's trademark sounds and ideas. Seems simple but it's not :D

First rule is - Drax himself cannot participate! Naturally, he can vote for all contestants.

Second rule is - contestants cannot use any worktunes by Drax, neither from his example tunes nor from any other source - make it from scratch, fuckers! :D

Last rule is - it's by no means a remix compo. Composers have to at most recreate typical harmonies, sounds and flavours but in brand new composition on their own.

If you need to analyze his tunes bit by bit with aid of SidDump and similar tunes - your call but doing it by ear is far more creative ;)

Apart from that all composers have total freedom regarding entries' number, playtime, speed, editor, executability etc. - all in all it shall be judged by the people and results will be based on Drax's CSDb vote and other CSDb votes ;) In addition, SuperNoise will play all entries for RiverWash 2015 audience who will vote on paper. Those votes will count as well.

Have fun!

A DRAX tune without a 6581 bass just wouldn't be the same! ,D

Ok, I got a name, a chorus theme, a verse, a bass ok for both chips and some bugs in my editor. But I also got 2 weeks left for an intro, bridges connecting the themes and some extra melodies. I'm mainly worried about the shortage of rhythmic details, like ghost notes and such.

The thing that's struck me most is that Drax's tunes keep pounding musical ideas, so that's something to keep in mind. Keep pounding is the key here. :)

Hehe, thanks Hein... The tunes in the new Chorus demo are some old work tunes that I packed - not my best works... But there is something new coming up :)
