BB56 - Open Genre + Ewok Drawing Competition

Sample Pack:
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]


1: Make a tune using only the shit samples provided.

2: Draw a picture featuring an Ewok and post it in this thread.
3: In addition to casting your vote for the best tune, you must also vote for the best Ewok picture.

The winner of the Ewok drawing contest shall win respect and admiration ONLY.

THE CHALLENGE

The Battle Host must provide a sample set to be used for the battle. These samples are the only sound sources allowed, unless the Additional Rules for the battle state otherwise. The samples can be anything that the Battle Host has the right to distribute for non-commercial use.

The Battle Host must create three Additional Rules. These can allow or require additional sound sources, or impose any kind of new requirements.

THE CONTEST

Anyone can enter the Battle by posting a link to their entry in the Battle thread. Unless the Additional Rules state otherwise, any processing is allowed and the source samples need not be recognizable. The Host may disqualify any entry that does not meet either the general rules or the additional ones.

Once the submission deadline is reached, the winner is elected by posting votes in the same thread. Anyone is welcome to vote whether they participated or not. In case of a draw, the Host designates the winner between the submissions tied for first place.

THE DEADLINES
Each battle takes place over two weeks, starting on a Friday (12th May 2017).

Submissions close Tuesday 11 days later (23rd May 2017) 23:59 and voting opens at 00:00 (immediately after).

Voting closes at 23:59 on the 13th day, Thursday (25th May 2017). The winner then becomes the Host, and has until 23:59 on the 14th day (Friday 26th May 2017 ) to post a new thread with a new sample set and new rules.

Late Submissions are void to receiving a vote.

ANYONE CAN VOTE REGARDLESS OF SUBMITTING ETC.




The Samples Countdown until submissions close: All times are synchronised to UTC.

Re: BB56 - Open Genre + Ewok Drawing Competition

I need to get on my drawing, I think I'm going to do a cubist interpretation of an ewok. Song is coming along though, fully mixed, just composing now, unless I add a different lead. Drums aren't as crazy as last time, but they're coming out something like this track I did a year ago, which is one of my more popular ones, so it's been interesting to re-visit the idea a year later and see how I approach it differently.

I will know you've cheated if you submit anything of that quality from the samples I provided.

Re: BB56 - Open Genre + Ewok Drawing Competition

Hmmm, couldn't figure out how to make an image actually show up from a dropbox link (if we can even do that). Sorry you'll have to click through for now. Hoping to wrap up the song tomorrow.


EDIT: Welp, it's upside down now......errr wait. Nope I drew it upside down. This is fine.

Re: BB56 - Open Genre + Ewok Drawing Competition

Replace "dl=0" with "raw=1" after the "?". Makes files workingly directifiably linkable again.

Did you actually draw that? I have to up my game.

Re: BB56 - Open Genre + Ewok Drawing Competition

When George Lucas made 'Return of the Jedi', he was experimenting heavily with symbolism. As he explained it, the battle of Endor was meant to represent the Vietnam War, and the Ewoks were supposed to represent the Vietnamese people and the Empire represented the United States.

Yep, for the bigger lines, I used a straight edge, then I decided that was too clean. So, I went back over them free-hand just thickening them up and humanizing it a bit. I googled images of ewoks and kind of just tried to make it look cute with squares. Glad you like it, I thought it came out too square and color only made it worse.

Yeah and the fact that there are actually solo drums and single notes in there. Last one I saw had 4 samples:

1 snare
1 sampled movie clip
1 Lyn Collins - Think
1 random sample (can't remember what it was)

I think the worst was BB48. We were supposed to produce a song using another song as the "guide" sorta or structure for our song, but we were only allowed to use the samples in the sample pack, and it had to combine two genres. I looked at the challenge and clearly the easy/cop out way to do it would be to do some electronic genre mix "acid house", "ambient dub", but I felt the true spirit of the challenge was in combining two absolutely unrelated genres, such as folk and flamenco, or something of that sort, so I decided to do two actual genres rather than "electro funk", "electro rock", or "electro rap", or something easy.

Now, the challenge was CLEARLY stated that we needed to mix two genres... which brings us to the samples... The pack came with a few percussive items, a short rock guitar riff, a couple electronica-y sounds, a long rnb acapella, a long rap acapella (of some song about investing money), and that was essentially it. So, the challenge was to mix two genres, but practically, there really wasn't a whole lot of genres that you were going to reproduce with what was given. On that beat battle, I really wanted to do something within the rules, and everything really wasn't too bad, except for the two genre rule!!! I wasn't going to cop out because the rules were very restrictive and I knew probably most people were going to end up bending it and doing electronic-something. My normal approach is to check out the sounds and anything that catches my ear I use for a phrase, but on this one the only way I saw of being able to do two genres was to just treat one of the samples as a single note and just write something.

I didn't quite get what I really wanted to do down, I did get a submission together. But damn, that sample pack along with the given rules was nigh impossible.
