Contest proposal: Soundtrack for Free TON

I also consider the issue of preferred styles to be important. Free creativity and unlimited styles are good, but …
The catch is that you can write both jazz and symphony and an experiment, but the judge likes techno.

But the number of performances from one participant can also be increased) more work - more choice!

That’s why there are a lot of jurors. All of them have different tastes.

—-

And works from 1 participant will be increased.

I mean that the judge, on the contrary, should not rely only on his opinion and love for a certain direction, but understand both current trends and look into the future. And so I would like to discuss the implementation of the track in the life of the community.

It is important to consider here that there is and should be a clear delineation of the use of tracks. Not every track you listen to in a car, nor every track you listen to in a car is suitable for the community.

The purpose of use depends on what the work will be.

Simply put, the track for the intro of a video or radio broadcast is very different from what we are used to listening to with headphones.

For different tasks and completely different implementations

It’s like a W&D ID contest

Do we need an audio identifier?
Background music ?

The motivation of the contest is soundtrack like this, when listening to which, a person will want to find the name of the song on the Internet and stumble upon Free TON.

Also it will be used with videos, lives, conferences etc

Я думаю, участники будут понимать, что «артхаус» или мрачный трэк точно не подойдут для Free TON, а скорее весёлый и вдохновляющий.

Наверное, надо будет прописать это в условиях.

Или наоборот , мне кажется, надо дать волю фантазии участникам, пусть пишут любой трэк: хоть мрачный, хоть весёлый. В этом же смысл децентрализации.

Hello. The idea is very interesting. But do you think that would be a good idea before the launch of gov 2.0?

Hello. When is the gov 2.0 launching?

Эти условия уже похожи на тех задание ) Одобряем !)

support music for free ton.
it can be in any local language lyrics?

I’m sure, only English

I’m not against. i support it!

I suggest participants to immediately send mastered file of format WAV / 44100Hz / stereo / 24bit
Because after the contest the participants may “forget” to send the file

wav file is large to download, mp3 will suffice for review. But in case of victory, wav will be needed for its further possible revision.

@aristotel I think it will be necessary to add an item to the technical specifications that the final version of the winner should be 9 RMS and contain a multitrack folder with tracks without effects
processing such as (delay, reverb, compression, equalization). But at the same time, contain files of reverb and delay buses, and be wav 44100/24 ​​and at peak contain - 6 RMS

And each track of the multitrack should have an easy-to-read view

Bass
Guitar
Drums
Vocals
& Etc

this may be required for subsequent remix contests, which in turn will give another impetus to promotion

As a music creator, I would definitely take part in this contest. =)
But I’m not quite sure why the community needs it?

IMHO this competition is made to embezzle money. Nobody will ever need this song. Has anyone made songs for Bitcoin, Ethereum, or other cryptocurrencies? To give so many crystals for a thing which will bring zero benefit is nonsense. Professional beatmakers are cheaper
