Mimic Music Compo
« on: April 15, 2006, 22:47:54 »
I proudly bring you the Mimic Music Competition!

This is a competition in music creation, but unlike a normal contest the aim is not to create the best that you can, but instead to mimic the style of your fellow musicians. That's right! Pick a style of music you'd like to replicate and get to work. In the end your work will be judged on the usual merits like technical complexity and creativity, the more biased and subjective emotional value, and on interpretive qualities of your work. To win you have to compose well, make it pleasant to the listeners ear, AND truly capture the essence of the composer you are going to mimic. How's that for a challenge?

This invitation goes out to every musician reading this as well as regulars from the Modarchive, ModPlug, CTGMusic, Psycledelics, MadTracker and other communities.

To read more visit the website: http://www.inet.hr/~dpekez/mimic-news.html

PS - Now spread the word.

Cheers

Awww man, I don't even have my own style knocked yet, how can I mimic someone elses?

EDIT: Ah screw it all up the *** with a rubber ****** until its ***** falls off, you can count me in. Just to be in a georg compo again, brings back fond memories of my youth

Ok, here's the first mimic of "Bitches Brew" by Miles Davis. An excerpt of a longer file, made with an analog synth :

You said anything goes, does that mean I can use my bass guitar and not sample it, but capture the audio live and mix it on the computer? Or does it have to be some sort of electronic instrument, becuase I have a korg synth i never used

EDIT: Oh yeah, forgot to say, what a kick ass idea for a compo. I like compos, but I like when they make you think, thats why I like OHCs so much

The deadline is also in the F.A.Q. I invested at least 23 minutes of my life into writing that thing so at least you could humor me. I have special needs u know.

Squirrel Havoc: You can play your guitar live, or sample parts of it or just do what you like. I really mean it when i write that you're allowed to fart into a mic and make music that way. The challenge is to mimic a style of music, not to use only your leet trax skillz.

Not sure i understand your question about anonimity. If you ask wheter i'll reveal who the actual authors are the anwser is yes. I toyed with that idea but decided against it cos i'm affraid it might add to the confusion, and also because the URL to a song would usually give away the author.

If you ask wheter i will display the way each person voted then the anwser is no. You have my word however that any "fishy" votes will be sent back, and possibly disqualified. And since i'm not the only person receiving the votes i can't rigg them myself.

Thank you for the support and joining.

I'm still trying to think of someone to mimic that I can actually pull off. I can barely pull of Squirrel Havoc music....
