Strike up the Band: A Call for Music

 

So, we have a YouTube channel. Things tend to go on fairly often there, but they need a little spice. Reviews? They could use some tunes. Promotions? Why not a melody? And if music be the food of love, play on. In short: the channel needs a little love. Here's where you come in.

 

This isn't really a contest. There are prizes - incentives, I guess, but there are no winners. The goal here is to provide BZP video reviewers with a playlist from which they can select songs to add to their reviews, presumably in a random-yet-fitting sort of fashion. As such, we are asking the composers of BZPower to come up with music that will make our YouTube videos more attractive, more entertaining, and more alluring. The music will primarily be used during the "building" phase of set reviews, but other uses are possible.

 

Disclaimer:

With the above in mind, by entering a composition into this call, you are giving BZPower the rights to use it for any projects involving the site. Credit will be given, of course.

 

Incentives:

You'll pretty much have your name in lights. I know composing music isn't easy, so there are some physical items to help compensate. Random polybags given by LEGO will be offered to the entrants.

 

As stated above, winners won't be chosen - everyone's composition has a shot at getting chosen for any given review video.

 

Entry Period:

Let's try about three weeks for an initial entry period. Wednesday, June 11th until Wednesday, July 2nd at 11:59 PM Eastern.

 

Rules:

  • Original compositions and interpretations only - don't use music recorded by someone else!
  • You are allowed to create topics for your entries in Fan Created Media.
  • As usual, please PM me if you suspect any foul play or have any questions.

You can also ask questions by posting in this topic.

 

With that, get composing! Bonus points for major seventh chords.

Major sevenths activated. But yeah, I'll be entering some stuff. :)

 

Are we talking minute-snippet types of things (building stage usually only lasts about a minute)?

The length of the composition is up to you - there are certainly fadeouts and things that can be used if it runs too long. I might say avoid the snippet route, though, just in case opportunities to use the track other than during the building stage pop up.

Sure, I don't think that would be a problem, seeing that this really isn't a traditional kind of contest. I would say, though, that entering more than one piece won't get the corresponding number of polybags dumped on your desk; one per entrant is likely all we can swing.

Oops, sorry for not having gotten around to this; I've been away! But Soundcloud sounds fine! I have to ask B6 about how best to distribute files at the end of this, though.

 

Anyway, thank you for entering!

While if I had 2 months to do this, I could probably get it done, I just found this and can't.

Also I frown on anyone who uses diminished fifths and minor seconds. =P

No I meant a chord containing them. =P

EDIT: to explain it better, a chord containing either a minor second or a trichord, but not both at the same time.

Such a bluesey interval must be the work of the devil!!1

 

Maybe I should bring a Gravity Hurts cover to this topic. Plenty of room for devillish tritones and minor 2nds there. Frown your frowns.

To be honest I only really dislike chords when the interval gets smaller than a minor second. =P

(Then I just consider it being out of tune. =P)

So that's pretty much a wrap. Here's how you can get your music files directly to Black Six:

  • Put the file(s) on DropBox and PM a link, or
  • Send an email with the file(s) to andrew@bzpower.com
