Let’s all explore the pure form of fantasy! By this I mean free form, no particular form of music needs to shine through! “Imaginative musical ideal”. I cooked up most of these samples quickly, so hope you enjoy!
Forgot to add unique rules:
Idea must be free flowing, free-form. Using different forms and styles constantly.
Productions that are filled with loops from beginning to end without any breakdowns or switch ups are frowned upon.
No other samples other than what has been provided.
You can use influences of the renaissance or baroque or 20th century stuffs…but… F those crusty bums! I mean mad props, but get outta your own headspace, and just go for it!
Do your best to sculpt a few bits of what I’ve provided into your composition please.
By composition I do not mean go and study what Chopin did, or how the structure of songs in the movie Fantasia where arranged! Be your own interpretation of what a composition is!
There’s no need to worry about song/piece length. However lets say you write a 30 second song, please do 3 other concepts/songs/sound logos/conceptual sound/whatever. Give us a total of lets say 4 short things, mixed together expressing maybe a few ideas that emote a feeling, or something!
MOst importantly have fun!
Beat Battle General Rules:
Beat Battles take place over the course of two weeks. The first ten days users will have to arrange, upload, and post their track to this forum. After this, the next three days users cast their votes for their favorite track. At the end of this, the winner will be announced, and they will then become the next Beat Battle host, and will have one day to construct a battle pack and begin the next Beat Battle.
Unless otherwise stated, the only sample/audio sources you may use for your song must come from the battle pack.
In the event of a tie, the battle host will decide the winner
**** in the event of winning the battle, the winner of the beat battle will be asked to make their track available for archive and also to hold onto to the project file of said “winning” track for in the event that it is to be considered for a best of the beat battles release ****
