Are you ready for JHCompo?

JHCompo is a 2-hour, weekly composition competition where entrants create original music based on the theme given. This all-gear (use any hardware or software you want), MP3-based compo is held every Tuesday, and was created as a place for musicians to hang out and hone their craft.

All the action happens at SolidComposer including the listening party, which is automated. For those new to the site: entrants must sign up for an account to upload their entries (in MP3 format) to the compo round page. The theme will appear at the start of the compo round. Once the 2-hour round is up, the listening party will start immediately at the compo round page. The compo is open to anyone, from beginners to the well-experienced.

The next round happens at http://solidcomposer.com/arena/. To help keep track of the weekly dates, you can follow the event page on Facebook.

Sounds interesting... But does everyone have to be there and compose during the same 2 hour time slot?

And also all gear seems like it would exclude many tracker-music participants who are mostly software based.

Interesting though, thanks for the info. Are acoustic instruments and vocals allowed? What about hardware gear that is hooked up to vsti's? I guess this would be excluded?

"All-gear" in this context means that you can use whatever software or hardware you want. So if you want to do vocals, acoustic or a spoken-word soliloquy, go ahead. :wink: The idea behind it being 2-hour is to focus on refining one's workflow by working under time constraints. You may discover new ways to compose more efficiently this way, and by hanging out with others within the 2-hour period and subsequent listening party one can gain new tips from peers on how to smooth out one's own production process.
