GroovyCompo (started by Mick Rippon and later
organised by Yannis Brown) is a music competition for people who compose with either the XM
(Fastracker II) or the IT format (Impulse Tracker). You simply write a tune with a
set of predetermined instruments.
triweekly compo - the first
week was dedicated to tracking (or writing the music), the second week
was dedicated to
voting, and the third week was for administration. More information about this can be found in how to track and
how to vote.
was a very similar concept to
past biweeky competitions such as The Trackering, Creulisation and not forgetting the one
that started it all... The 20 MeEhNuTz Chipcompo, but in GroovyCompo the voting
entirely different. I believe that the voting scheme
was more accurate and less
hassle. Look elsewhere on the page for more information.
We decided to address the main
problems we found with past biweekly
competitions and try and rectify them in this one.
The final aim was to make things as
easy and as quick as possible - no hassle, no fuss.
decided to centralise everything around this webpage, and instead of putting all the
responsibility on one person,
we decided to spread it out so that if
they can't be available on one
weekend, then there was always going to be someone around to keep the competition going. We
all had lives you know :)
