I've started a
CUSTOM POKEMON SOUNDTRACK CONTEST SUPER EDITION!
That's right, create your own main-series Pokemon themes. That means at least the following:
-3 town/city themes
-3 route themes
-Wild Pokemon Battle
-Gym Leader Battle
-ALL CUSTOM ARRANGED! ARRANGED AS IN COMPOSED BUT WITH CONVENTIONAL POKEMON STYLE!
It's legal as long as:
-Contains at least a treble clef and a bass clef
-Parts are clearly defined and separated (double barlines/text at top of page/timings in description)
-Has all required parts IN ONE SCORE UPLOADED TO MUSESCORE.COM
Wild Pokemon Battle guide is here: https://musescore.com/groups/pokegeeks/discuss/1352521
-Preferably have percussion.
-If you used a different soundfont than the default to make the piece, link it in the description or create a videoscore.
-Loop once and fade out at end of each part (if you can't do this, just create an alternate ending or something).
-Separating parts and uploading to external website for easy downloading (in case one of your themes are so good that someone HAS to get it without opening up MS and cutting and pasting and all that)
-Bonus for 10 or more instruments! (what bonus, I don't know)
-Bonus also to amazingly clever or awesome themes. People will know it when they hear it.
-Bonus to those who do more than the required.
-Letting people know of your processes in creating the score.
-Making up town names.
-Rival Battle (for rival music be sure to give personality)
-Elite Four Battle
-Enemy Team Battle
-Legendary Pokemon Battle
-SPECIFIC Legendary Battles?
DEADLINE: June 4, 2016. Scoring period will last a week and end on January 30. Results should be announced by February 7.
IMPORTANT: To submit, simply reply the URL to the listings post. I'll make the list at Pokegeeks (https://musescore.com/groups/pokegeeks) of the pieces people submit.
The winners are chosen based on their score's favorite:views ratio.
Think of yourself playing a new Pokemon game. What music do you think you would hear at each location? If you were to make that game, what kind of personality or theme would the game have? Once you plan exactly whatever style you want, and create a melody, all you have to do is let yourself go. Or at least that works with me.
Spread the word and discuss! Let me know if I forgot anything. ^_^
