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: Revival.


Sorixa made this, she's on twitter and instagram, and hangs around here too.
Open the spoiler if you want a more detailed story suggestion.
Here's the story Sorixa wrote for the picture:
Do you remember how it feels to fly?
It’s hard, isn’t it? It’s hard to remember, hard to think of what could have been.
Yet, on this cold earth that now surrounds you, there is still hope.
With each turn of a corner, there are new possibilities.
You just need the will to chase them.
You are your canvas.
And with each step forward, you color your world.
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.


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. We might disqualify you if you skip this step.

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

Submissions close on January 2nd 2019.

After submissions close, we will judge all the submissions and choose the best of the bunch to go on the album. From those chosen submissions, there will be two prize winners.
First prize will win a $75 (USD) cash prize, a paid version of MeldaProduction's MFreeFXBundle, and MMultiAnalyzer.
Second prize will win a $25 cash prize and the MFreeFXBundle as well.
Both prize winners will get a free T-shirt if accepted.

As a reminder, we will be selling album merch for a limited time after the album is released, and 50% of all proceeds from both the merch and the album will be donated to Notes for Notes.

The judging window will run until January 9th, and our targeted release date is January 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!
