Libre Music Challenge #11 : Happy Birthday Edition !

Post by Sahaathyva »

Hello all,

The Libre Music Challenge started 1 year ago by a pure joke with @rghvdberg : "hey! we should contest ourselves on a challenge using libre softwares only! , i said : let's do it with a sample of your dog toy? i expected nothing as it was a joke, but Rob sampled the toy and we did it :D

https://archive.org/details/LibreMusicChallenge_1

It basically started there with that now common sentence :

The Libre Music Challenge is an event that originated in the chat server run by producer/musician/youtuber Unfa.
In this challenge we use only free audio software and some general rules apply (check viewtopic.php?p=120524#p120524)


As we love to celebrate, we will !!!

This month challenge we're gonna remix the happy birthday song (Alles gute zum geburstag/feliz comple anos/joyeux anniversaire) using Libre software (whatever daw / source (sample/synth) you want, the only downside is it will have to be in a multiple of 120BPM Tempo and will have to start and end in a C tonality and be of a 1:30 minute length max (this in order to be mixed together) .

15% Bonus for the ones who will manage to put in the track the original sample from the 1st LMC

https://archive.org/download/LibreMusic ... dogtoy.wav

So, do what you want with this theme using whatever floss , must start and end in C tonality and length 1 and an half minute, tempo 120 or multiples.

All music must be made using only FLOSS/Libre audio software .
ANY fx are allowed this month
ANY audio source is allowed this month.



Well, that's it. Good luck and I look forward to hearing your submissions and reading about how you did it.

Submit before midnight (24:00) 06-26-2021 (26th June GMT)

You can submit tracks by posting links to your work in this thread. Make sure the audio is downloadable and mp3 or ogg (cause the FLAC is too long to upload :( ) as all tracks will be posted on archive.org. (link will follow)

Good luck and if you have questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Code: Select all

tl;dr
Make a track using any free DAW with any sound source(free of course :evil: )
The track wil be a remix of the happy birthday theme , C tonality to start and end / C major tonailty / 120 BPM multiple tempo

Submit before midnight (24:00) 06-26-2021 (26th June GMT)

And ............................


HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the mighty Libre Music Challenge aka the L.M.C. !

@Sahaathyva Quick Question: When you say "C tonality to start and end", do you mean that the first note in the song is C (Key of F major) or that the first note is G (Key of C major)

Hey @1108redux!
This is what we came up with in the chat:
Happy Birthday dear LMC.png
and this very simplified version as MIDI file:
LMC11.zip
So all is in C Major key, melody starts on G. Hope that helps!
