After the 2 previous contests we know we are in a traditional fantasy world, the story starts in the small natural village of Siteyra...
It's on a early morning, the cold from the night is still there, the sun is shyly piecing though the mist, the protagonist leaves his house, wearing a big cloak with a hood, we can't see his/her face so far... This character enters the forest... but what kind of forest and for what purpose? You guys will decide that !
Once again it's really open to interpretation, it could be any kind of forest, something dark with swamps, something with a lot of colours and cute animals, a forest full of magic, a forest made of gigantic mushrooms, a forest made of dead trees and haunted by spirits...
What i'd like to know too is why is the hero going in the forest?
Is it for a hunt? For collecting plants? For a simple walk in nature? For a secret meeting?...
It could be anything and this should not influence the music, your song must be about the forest itself and not about the action.
You have until the 27th of July to submit your song in the comment section!
Not on discord (still join us: https://discord.gg/5n7qEwu1), not on private message, but here ;D
If you have any question be sure to let me know, i may have forgot to explain some points ahah
Last point i thought it could be fun to create a story with those contest, but don't let it narrow your creativity, if we are in a fantasy world bu you want to make an industrial futuristic sounding song it's okay and i'll find a trick to incorporate it in the storyline (if you win).
I also think it could be fun to create the hero together, it's just for fun and it's okay if you don't care ahah...
But if you do, here are a lot of polls:
- Man or Woman?
- Civil Profession?
- Combat Style?
We may make other polls a bit later to give more precisions (like what kind of weapon he/she uses, colour of hairs and eyes etc...) it will depends on how much people enjoy/care about the narrative idea ^^
Every music style is welcome, you can make 8bits musics, orchestral arrangements, live recordings, electronic music... As long as it fits the theme, everything is allowed !
To enter your song must be an original creation of your own made specifically for this contest.
You can upload your songs on youtube, soundcloud or any other place that allows the listening without having to download it.
Your song must be 1 minute long MINIMUM.
At the end of the month, during 2 or 3 days people will vote to elect the best entry (I'll explain the voting system when it will be time).
