SoundTempest Returns…as a Blog

SoundTempest Returns…as a Blog

From OCReMix: This domain has been basically unused for years, but recently I decided I would actually use it for something useful. Welcome to the new SoundTempest, a blog reporting on and analyzing the latest developments in the music industry. A lot of important industry news, especially anything relating to entities like the RIAA, SoundExchange, […]

CompoST 66! Love-Love Romance!

CompoST 66! Love-Love Romance!

Check it out! Coda wins this one! CONGRATZES. This theme was “Romantic Date” and boy was it… a horribly geeky date. Chip-rock, H-game midis, the whole works. In the end though it was coda’s smooth Kirby-esque guitar chord progression that won teh day. I seem to be sucking at compos again, getting my usual second-to-last […]

CompoST 65! They are dropping like flies!

CompoST 65! They are dropping like flies!

Well, we had some trouble with this one. Andyjayne and UncleBen had to drop out which left us with two people, but Xerol and DjSammyG showed up late to fill in the two absences. And Xerol’s song placed better than mine ;o. Today’s theme was “Sunny Green Hills” so we had a lot of happy […]

CompoST64! New tools, new faces! Abandoned spaceships!

CompoST64! New tools, new faces! Abandoned spaceships!

The theme today was “Abandoned Spaceship!” We also had two new faces, Illustrationism [the owner of Sakari-Infinity] and Koelsch1 [scene saxophonist extraordinaire!]. Thanks to my recent camping out in #mod_shrine, I came across a tool called “CMS” designed specifically for managing compos, by Reduz! It’s great, I’ll give it to you if you ask for […]

CompoST 62

CompoST 62 happened today! The theme was “dogfight,” so in this one we had to create a song for a high-energy, high-tension duel! CompoSTers were: Myself, Skrypnyk, MagiNinja, vindkast, and djcubez. Lots of compo virgins today, you can almost smell the cherry blood. Anyway, here are the songs:http://compost.lggaming.com/compost62/ Skrypnyk’s was the most liked out of […]

CompoST 60!

CompoST 60!

CompoST 60 happened today! Not as good of a turnout today as I’d hoped, but I still had fun. The theme was “Alien hive,” so like certain parts of the original Metroid or Prime, or perhaps even the Zerg music from StarCraft, who doesn’t love that :)? Anyway, the entrants were myself, Xerol, D-Lux, and […]

CompoST 59

CompoST 59

Lots of them, lately! http://compost.lggaming.com/compost59/ The theme was “Clock Tower” and the entrants were myself, Ty, BlueMoose [Ty’s sister], and Xerol. Personally I thought Ty’s was the neatest one, and also the most unique. I tried to rip off Castlevania with the symphonic rock, failed terribly. Xerol’s sounded like Castlevania also, but like some of […]
