November KVR Cafe Contest

Post by folderol »

For this month a German children's song is the theme. You're given a recording of the original and a MIDI file of it. The challenge is to expand on this in your own way. There's still time to join, and we need plenty of entries to ensure the contest continues.
Mine is here :)

During the first 18 seconds I didn't know what to think of it. After that the sound improves immensely though. Well done, but I would've cut the first 36 seconds..(I like the part from 18-36 seconds too in itself, but I like the track best if started at 36s)

ok, I will start expanding on my own ways now and here:

Sleep on and dream of Love
because it's the closest you will get to love
poor twisted child
so ugly, so ugly
poor twisted child
oh hug me, oh hug me
one November
spawned a monster
in the shape of this child
who later cried
'But Jesus made me, so
Jesus save me from
pity, sympathy
and people discussing me'
a frame of useless limbs
what can make GOOD
all the BAD that's been done?

Listen to my music

The whole track is intended as a bit of fun while retaining much of the original MIDI. It is vaguely similar in concept to a more extreme one I composed many years ago!

Just did a bit more digging through the dusty archives. I submitted Da Mice to the KVR contest for December 2007 :mrgreen:

At the top of the music cafe November submissions.
There's a link to the tune followed by a link to the MIDI file.
