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!

Soren: you're only trying to find an excuse to not compose a new sid!

'seems simple but it's not' - come on, count the amount of soundalikes in hvsc! a sole search for tunes entitled 'draxish' should keep you busy for at least an hour :D

A few bars further in life: not so Drax(ish). :)

Tomorrow another occasion to tableflip, sissies.

Jammer: There is no need to call Ian an old fart. ;)

Ian: I don't need to find and excuse for that. ;)

At some point I will release something...

So despite having no time at all for this...I have a chord progression and tempo. I guess that's a start.

What a great HVSC directory you have amassed, Thomas. 1994 and 2006, I'm looking at you!

I aim to make something in the Drax gene. So is this compo for 8580 only, since I want to brush off some 6581?
