Canvas - Overcome [OPEN]

I'm not going to put the whole announcement in this post, that's redundant. Go read the actual announcement if you haven't already.

So, here's the lowdown. Like it says in the announcement, your assignment should you choose to accept it is to look at this picture and make a song based on it. What kind of mood do you think this picture conveys? How do you feel about it? What do you think is happening? Keep all that in mind when you make your song, really try to paint your own picture.

This picture is the result of being prompted by a single word.
The word: Overcome.


Sorixa made this, they're on Twitter and Instagram, and around Tripulse as well.
Open the spoiler if you want some more words to go off of.
Instead of either me or Sorixa coming up with a little story for a theme, we're leaning extra hard into the visual side of it this time. Look back at the cover art of Revival, then of Pursuit, and then back at this. The girl in the cover has gone through some character development. Listen to the previous albums again too if you want some inspiration. This is the conclusion of a story arc for her, and she's coming out on top.
No genre requirement, no tempo restriction, no key restriction, nothing of the sort. You have absolute creative freedom. As long as you feel like the song you make fits that picture, it qualifies. The only rule is that you can't be using uncleared samples and such, y'know, the usual copyright stuff. The only other rule is that you can't name your track "Overcome" because there is no title track. You can be more creative than that, I believe in you.


So here's how you enter.

First, upload your track to soundcloud or clyp or anywhere else that we can stream it. If you have a mastered version, use that.
Make it a private link and post it in this thread for judging. You don't have to post it here, but we'd very much prefer it if you did.

Next, please prepare an unmastered version and submit it through this form.
Submitting a mastered version won't disqualify you, but we'd prefer unmastered files.

Submissions close on October 1st 2020.

After submissions close, we will judge all the submissions and choose the best of the bunch to go on the album. Everyone who makes it past the judging will win a prize
First prize will win a $60 (USD) cash prize, a month of Discord Nitro, and two free pieces of merch.
Second prize will win a $40 cash prize, a month of Discord Nitro, and one free piece of merch.
Third prize will win a $20 cash prize and a month of Discord Nitro
Everyone else who passes judging will get $5.

As a reminder, from here on out 100% of the proceeds from Canvas albums will be donated to Notes for Notes. We will also sell album merch for a limited time after the album is released, and 50% of the proceeds from merch sales will also be donated.

Our targeted release window is October 22nd-31st.


If you have any questions about the theme, want to discuss ideas with others, or want constructive criticism on your song, feel free to discuss in this thread or join our Discord server. If you have questions about the submission form, please private message me here on the forums or DM me on Discord.

Let's make something great happen!
