Event id #3046 : Like It's '83 Music Compo 2021

Welcome to the first and maybe not the last edition of Like It's '83 Music Compo!

Main goal is to faithfully recreate the spirit of early SID pieces, composed even before titans like Hubbard, Galway, or Tel did hit the scene. That said, there are no rigid limits regarding technical aspect whatsoever - it's up to contestants to bring good old times back and up to audience to judge how successful their attempts were. So bring the old shit on! <3

Compo rules:

1. No covers and remixes allowed. Some little hints or pastiches to increase fun factor are allowed, on the other hand.
2. No upper limit for playtime - if you feel up to 20 minutes suite - go for it!
3. No limit of tunes per author but each composition has to be at least 2 minutes long.
4. Any tool of your choice - it might be custom routine or any routine used back in the days (David Dunn or Russell Lieblich for example if they provided any tools online). Rip routines if you need to. Don't rip music data, though! :D Procedurally generated music is also allowed but it has to produce at least 2 minutes of unique and reasonable content. Interpret 'reasonable' as you wish :D
5. Votes will be counted on basis of CSDB voting system but the result is going to rely on my custom algorithm (squared amount of votes which already proved reliable before).
6. No money prizes included - you do it for fun and glory!

Any additional rules will be added on the fly. Good luck and have fun! <3

I might give this compo a go before the deadline expires. Making the basic sounds is well and truly easy. This should be good fun.

2 whole minutes is so much for 1983. I'm okay with it, just saying :)

Lovely stuff all of it! Great compo.

I once made a 83-ish tune in assembler for a game that never got finished. A preview of the game was released by Triad some years ago though, so I won't enter the tune into the compo. I'll just mention it here instead:

Not too much for '84 or '85, though :D What most tunes here aim for so far, to my ears ;)

In the meantime, absolute blast from 4-Mat:

Thursday starts with Saul Cross and his new entry:

Mid 83

With excellent company of Mutetus:

Challenged Magic Person

And blaster fired by MCH:

Pelvic Thrust

Important disclaimer for contestants and audience:

Compo is definitely not about LITERARY recreating the '83 games. It's only a tagline for this event to give you a hint. Otherwise, you'd be doomed to triangle only tunes, I guess :D It's perfectly fine if you recreate all 80s vibes which still follow simplicity and minimal approach to the sound building and arrangement. Some games sounded like that even in '88 so stay cool ;)
