Monthly MIDI Contest #8 - April 2012
I have been wondering what has happened to the Monthly MIDI Contests. I've never participated in one of them, but I like the idea and a lot of the entries from the past Monthly MIDI Contests, so I thought I'd run one myself.
The rules are:
Make (a) MIDI file(s) according to the challenge/theme of the contest. The challenge/theme changes each month.
You may make more than one file if you wish.
Send your songs in by the deadline. Then, if you wish, you can rate the songs (except your own). A voting form will be made available at the same time as the songs. Rate each song on a scale from 0 to 10 (used to be from 0 to 100, but I thought it would be easier if you rank from 0 to 10).
You are to make original compositions only.
Your songs must be no shorter than one minute (unless the challenge/theme says otherwise).
The authors of the songs must be kept secret until the scores have been announced.
Please don't use Quicktime to listen to the MIDI files (unless you have no choice), because it's extremely buggy and many songs mess up horribly in it. Some instruments play completely out of tune.
This month, the challenge/theme is:
You must write a song in the style of music from a SNES game. It has to be a boss battle theme. Listen to on of your favorite boss themes from SNES games, to get an impression of what your song could be like. The title of your song should fit the theme. If you want to, you can include, what game you've chosen. You don't have to though. There is also going to be a scoresheet, where you can rank the tracks and comment them. If you want to, you can also guess, what game the music has been copied from.
Dates and submission times
The contest starts April 9th.
The deadline for submission is April 30th (may be extended, if necessary).
Release date of the songs: To be announced
Release date of the voting results: To be announced
How to submit your songs
* Email (or if you can't email, PM) your MIDI file(s) to email@example.com. The subject must be your username's MIDI songs.
How to vote/rate
* Once the songs are made available, a voting form (text document) will be attached to the main post in the thread.
* Download and fill in the form, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject must be your username's MIDI votes. If you can't use email, you can PM your votes to me.

To all the MIDI pros and people who have participated in past Monthly MIDI Contests:

Well, what else do I have to say? I hope the contest is going to be a lot of fun for everyone who participates
If you want to, you may also write your track using real SNES samples/instruments (plus your MIDI file!), and then send me both files (MIDI + MP3).
Deadline: Contest is over!
