    The Hive Workshop

    Challenge Request

    Challenge Arena Rules:

    • No submissions may violate any of the site rules (Rules & Information)
    • Challenge results must be bug-free.
    • At least 1 WIP must be submitted
    • 1 screenshot as a confirmation


    Challenger:
    @HappyTauren

    Opponent(s):
    @obie

    Challenge Type:
    Music Production/Composition/Cover/Remix

    Challenge Theme:
    Remix the opponent's music piece that was submitted in the 9th music contest. The remix aspect extends to changing the structure of the compositions, removing certain parts, even adding new parts, repeating certain parts (or removing the repetition), changing tempo, etc. Basically, the remix is not a 1:1 cover at any rate, but rather a re-structuring and re-composition of the musical piece to suit a different style and thought process.

    The challenge starts when both contestants are ready for it, although the entries can be started before the challenge officially starts (since the purpose of it is to kill time until the next big contest). If a judge doesn't finish judging two weeks from the contest end, a new judge will be selected, that both contestants would agree on.

    Challenge Duration:
    10 Days

    Proposed Reputation Award:
    15 Reputation Points

    Challenge Judges:
    TBD, two judges

    Challenge conditions:
    The remix can be started on 21.1.2018. afterwards.

    Starting Date - Deadline:
    from whenever this officially starts - 31.1.2018. OR when both are finished

    Extensions possible:
    up to 10 days

    We don't have an official moderator for the Arena / Challenge section, so any mod can take it.

    Alright then, when obie replies with suggested changes, or acceptance of the challenge, we can find judges as well. That being said, I've got an unofficial confirmation from obie, we just gotta work out the details.

    I'm unfamiliar with the music scene, so would you be able to ask any potential judges?

    I have some unofficial production analysis experience in the form of online music classes (where analyzing works is part of the lessons) and comparing my own work to other professional creations. But someone with more real experience may be better. I could be a potential/backup judge if no one else pans out?

    There are space for two judges. You can be the actual judge, actually.

    The only person that I know really does music production in these parts is @Kwaliti, but I want to refrain from saying he should judge, because he's been a personal friend of mine for the last 12 years. As such, even if he'd not be biased (because he's a professional), I think someone more neutral in general should be recruited for this.

    Here's my first, (unofficial?) WIP. Since I said we can work on this from 21.1 onwards, it's not a problem to post the WIP(s) even now.

    Anyway, this is probably going to get reworked in the future (especially when I add heavy guitar parts to the latter part of the song).

    For 10 days? That's kind of weak man...

    I could help with judging if no one experienced how you say it (like whatever that is anyway since it's a hobbyist site, not a conservatoire exam) comes in.

    Being bug free in terms of an audio file means that the file must be playable, so it's an important point, if bizarre sounding. If you think that's weak, then double it or something. Could be 10, then?
