Very nice entries in this one. It's a pity that Tim/Geoff aren't available to Jury ... that indeed would have been something. :)

the compo is closed now and a week of voting commences (ends 7th of July 23:59 CET).

due to external problems, it may be impossible to hire an adequate jury this time, so your votes will probably become a sole deciding factor. don't miss this chance of having an actual influence on the world :)

a month without a compo is a month lost \o/

third edition of #JeSuis compo hits your screens and headphones this spring. it is the long promised, eagerly awaited #JeSuisFollin!
a legendary composer - doubled in fact, let's not forget about Tim's brother Geoff - with so distinct style both in composition and soundprogramming that it should be super easy to NAIL IT.

let's see: leads resembling guitar solos, spacy arpeggios two or more octaves wide, snares full of white noise, pulse wave with lightning fast width sweeps (or none at all!), 'real' flutes made of triangle wave, progressive rock / medieval music influences (also some classical, jazz and film score), a slight bit of Japanese game music vibe, chords with obligatory 7ths and often extra 9ths, chromatic mediant movements (Amaj9->Cmaj9 in Led Storm #7 for example), basslines as complementary voices...

you all know the routine. in case you don't or wish for a fuller scope, here's a handy playlist with Follin-infused SID tunes made throughout the years: http://deepsid.chordian.net/?file=/$Follin-inspired%20pieces
you may want to check his works for other platforms as well; for that is an abundant, delightful catalogue. https://www.wothke.ch/playmod has them all - just use the search function.
should you want to analyze our heroes' tunes byte by byte, frame by frame, https://sourceforge.net/projects/jsidplay2 and https://sourceforge.net/projects/c64-debugger give you that option.


the rules:
1. no covers (but SOME quotes from the mighty Follins allowed).
2. single file, runnable on a vanilla C64.
3. at least one minute of playtime.
4. does not have to be an exact soundalike of course - make it a modern version or a tongue-in-cheek pastiche if you like, SOME resemblance is obligatory though.
5. being an optimist sometimes: max two entries per composer.
6. how the results will be calculated i don't know yet, surely it won't be a plain csdb voting; i'm trying to reach Tim/Geoff themselves, so they could act as a jury (if anyone can help in this quest, please get in touch); but if that doesn't work out, i'm gonna think about some other independent jury panel - still, csdb votes will be taken into account as well.
7. no awards except immortal respect and fame (however if somebody's generous enough to fund a prize, i'm not at all against it).
8. members of the organizing group are allowed to participate, but in case of a draw they automatically lose ;)

enough words, time for sounds.
