Description

Welcome to the Mini Music Challenge, wherein participants will compose a piece a music that conforms to the requirements and theme (once revealed). After the submissions deadline, we will all listen to the submissions and vote for a winner!

The last one went over so well I thought I thought I'd do another quick one.


  • This event will consist of a single phase.
  • Participants will be able to sign up and submit their works anonymously using this event page.
  • Votes will be counted and published at end of the event. The person to receive the most votes wins.
  • The composers will have approximately 2 weeks to compose their piece. This will be followed by a short voting period.
  • MP3 is the preferred format, but MIDI and OGG are also acceptable.
  • The composition must be a new and original piece composed specifically for this event.



Short but Effective
There was an ulterior motive for naming this the Mini Music Challenge. For your submission, you are required to keep your piece to 2 minutes or less in length! Can you convey your desired musical aesthetic under this artificial time constraint? You're free to use any kind of instrumentation and sources of sounds you wish.


Riding the Airship!

Let's go to far-off places, and search for treasures bright! Our heroes have obtained an airship and are cruising around the world in an exhilarating flying machine, flowing through the skies with the greatest of ease! But is your RPG a high fantasy? Perhaps it is a steampunk airship? Or maybe it is a futuristic flying device?

Good luck to all the participants!

i quit because of the theme.
is there something wrong with it?
no i kinda like the theme but i have no experiences in making airship theme than battle and lyrics. (i'm a very good song writer but worst in singing)

maybe next time i will join other competition.

and since i like game music i will check on how good and rate it after the competition.
dynasty.net isn't working. Instead this gaming site pops up.

It's irc.dynastynet.net
I might join if I get time, I had a little melody I've been playing around with in my head that I think might suit this. I just wish it were a team thing, because I can do melodies, I can't do accompaniment.
now I'm getting "Index of /"

I think "irc.dynastynet.net" is the server name of the chat rather than the website you go to for the chat. Try going to "searchirc.com/network/DynastyNet" and search for rmn_music.
I think this theme will be super easy, it's just up tempo really, you can do anything with it. There's even a great scene in Dreamfall where the character is in an airship/train and the music is slow and relaxing, like elevator music. Everyone should definatly give the theme a try, it doesn't have to be perfect!
All FF airship themes had me hooked~ B3

Take it as a challenge!
Hello there.
I signed up just now, literally to ask if this competition is still open, and if there are any others out there taking part who have extensive knowledge of composition and all that...
If no one is very experienced at this I won't take part, but if some of you do this kind of thing a lot then I may take part.
Music is my thing, you see...

Take a look for yourself, here are the entries for the last composition challenge:

So the biggest competition are VGMusic_4_LIFE and harmonic, but mainly the latter. Are they both taking part this time round? :P
I should've seen this event earlier... OTL
I'll sign up now anyway... ^^

Well, they did the last event very well, and I don't know if they participate again, I can only see "Participant #??". Surely they would create another great pieces if they do.
Well I'm not feeling too inspired by the theme at the moment, but if at some point before the end of next week I find something that inspires me I'll take part. :)

Don't just judge by votes. Actually try listening to the pieces.
What's to stop people telling people what participant number they are and having their friends vote for them?
the fact that kentona will probably swap their number, muahahaha

Yeah I did. I listened to about 20 pieces of music from the last round. :)
Harmonic's first piece was really good too.

Hopefully, people will have the integrity not to do this.
