It seems like the winner of Battle 88 has left the planet. Anyone else want to stop waiting and make a new one? My proposal is, make a song inspired by minimalist (Steve Reich/Caterina Barbieri, etcetera) style music that relies completely on any of the different sequencer engines (arp, endless, finger, pattern, etcetera) of the OP-1.
Here’s my contribution…
i haven’t listened to yours yet but i will soon. i’d like to participate but i’m new here and didn’t catch the previous one or the context rules. how long do i have to submit my piece? any other important info you reckon i ought to know? thanks!!
Hey, so, I guess I’ll just make it up on the spot…
the deadline is December 21st
you have to use the sequencing engines for all the sounds you produce
investigate “minimalism” as a compositional style and use that as your guiding light
there is no song limit or sound source limit other than everything has to come out of the op-1
feel free to make up any other boundaries to aid you in your creation
That’s all I got…
God, my last contribution to a battle was #25, almost 10 years ago! I just can’t believe it.
Anyway, thanks a lot @erbazeli for this proposal, I hope my contribution fits your rules. I went really minimalist on the production side too, using only th FM synth and Arpeggio sequencer. Just a little bit of master delay as well.
Looking forward to listening to you guys’ songs.
Thank you for keeping this going! I’m sorry for “leaving the planet” and leaving everyone hanging.
The OP prevails… I’m glad you made a track, I like it a lot.
Hey! You still exist. I got impatient. Lots of rain and lots of coffee… sorry to step on your opportunity. Did you have a battle idea in mind???
You are just fine! I took way too long. I think your proposal is a great idea. I’m excited to make a submission.
here is my battle 89 submission!
Really enjoyable “Clapping Music” vibes. So smooth @djcuvcuv
hey thanks! that is one of my bigger inspirations for this one. i forget the other one of steve’s i really really like but the cover is a colorful assortment of what look like ribbons and its an orchestra playing beautiful repetitive patterns
Here’s my submission!
A blessed Yule (winter Solstice)! Any chance for a day extension on the deadline? i am very close to finished with my entry…
Inquiring minds want to know…
That’s fine. Same goes for anyone else. Unless it’s going to cause a stir, I’m not strict. But hurry up!
Thanks for the extension, here we go…
Best of luck to all!
Ok. The submission period has ended… I don’t know how to make a vote… Can someone tell me/do it?
Make a new thread with “battle 89 voting” in the subject line.
Then in the toolbar, there is a gear icon under which there is “build poll” you can then copy/paste the links (or the titles, if you wish) and there you go…
