Random sample pack is provided, as usual, sorry it’s not targeted more at the sounds typical in the source material. A very low bit rate mp3 of the original is also included. I am currently in the process of trying to download a flac version which I hope to be able to provide you with soon.*
Only sounds edited from original or taken from the sample pack to be used. Only Renoise and its native effects allowed.
*I know there is at least questionable copyright violation there. The piece is over 50 years old so may fall outside it but I’m not sure when the changes to the law came in, that it is 50 years after the death of copyright holder. Also there is the fact that there is copyright on the recording itself, which is very likely to be newer unless this release was created copyleft or similar. Hopefully, as this is only run for our entertainment and nothing more, nobody will have objections to this questionable legality of providing the original source material.
Winner of the last round, td6d, set the rules. Winner of this round will set them for the next one.
With it being an avant-garde piece there is little in the way of main hook, melody, vocals or motifs to work a remix from in the usual manner, so personally I would say it is at least slightly down to interpretation, although thought obviously needs to be given to the original piece when working on your own…
with respect to the ‘remix’ part: kazakore is right, hard to do a true ‘remix’ without very distinctive elements in a song. just focus on the mood of the song and/or treat it as another sample in the pack.
yeah, i don’t blame him for it, and am aware he did not know. i just wanted him to react quickly so i made my response a bit harsh.
suggestion1: hope kazakore picks this up, will probably agree
suggestion2: yeah i just noticed that, didn’t think of that, editted it out. we all make mistakes
Yeah I’m sorry I’ve been a little lax of late, had a lot of other stuff on my plate! Hence why the last couple haven’t had a full copy&paste of the main basic rules, why none has been hosted on my server (need to reinstall and FTP client and find my log-in details,) why I haven’t uploaded tracks to Soundcloud for the ease of voting and why I haven’t even tried to update the website in ages. Plus other stuff. Hopefully things will settle down and I’ll be able to get on top of it all properly soon…
My bad and thanks to you guys for sorting it out so quick. Got the entry in PM now and hope to have some more from you guys before close in a couple of days
