Just like hip hop has its Four Elements, a certain musical festival that is most assuredly not a donut (^_~) has elements of its own.
(Some of) those elements are: chiptune, video game music (VGM), visualism and nerdcore hip hop. This challenge will have teams integrating these elements into one track.
To start off this alignment, we bring you three videos, brought to you by none other than visual artist Pixelseed!
Your job, as a team, is to pick the video you like the best, and then create the soundtrack to it!
Seems easy enough, right?
Well, producers, your challenge is to tie in chiptune elements into your song. You can go as minimal or maximized as you’d like, but the element(s) chosen need to be clear and identifiable. Oh and if that wasn’t enough, we’re going to need you to build the hook of your track around an arpeggio. You can flex your muscles and write a completely original one yourself, but if that seems like too daunting a task, then you can borrow one – but it must be from a video game.
Vocalists, you’re here to represent nerdcore hip hop at it’s finest. We want to see you whipping out your finest multisyllabic rhymes – at least 50% – to be precise. Oh, and we need you to really get your point across by including some fire adlibs.
So that’s it, really. Not too bad huh? All you need to do is pay homage to your sister scenes.
Oh, and don’t stress too much if you’re unable to edit your song to the video you choose, while you’re welcome to do it yourself to achieve perfection, we will also do it on behalf of anyone who isn’t able to.
