Find below the rules for the challenge/competition. We need to have the rules in place so its all on a level playing field.
These have been adapted from a couple of challenge/competition music sites already tried and tested. This is open for discussion as i probably haven't got it entirely right yet or the way you want it. I have an idea for the first challenge and if anyone else has ideas then please get back to me for future challenges.
So here it is:
Tubular.net Music Challenge Rules
1. About The Tubular.Net Music Challenge
The Tubular.Net Music Challenge is themed challenge and competition to test your song writing/recording skills. I will set a theme and you write a piece of music related to that theme. The purpose of the Challenge is to help you experiment and develop as a musician and ultimately have fun!
The idea will be to write a piece of music (instrumental or song) from when the theme is announce via the Tubular.net forum. Try not to enter a track that you have already written as this would not be testing your skills as a musician as the idea is to write a piece of music from scratch.
Once all songs have been submitted, I will load them onto a song portal (TBC) where all tubular.Net members can listen to each track. The link to this song portal will be posted on the forum. After the deadline close date, all the votes will be counted end then will be announced on the Tubular.Net Music Challenge thread.
You can submit any piece of music as longs as it falls into the challenge criteria.
The track should be an original composition
The tracks has no time limit (but within reason!
Please submit in mp3 format only
