    LPA Monthly Mix-Up February: "Burning In The Skies" Free-For-All

    Get ready to boot up your music production software of choice, and put your skills on the line because it's once again time for...






    FEBRUARY


    But first, for those who don't know...






    What Is the LPA Monthly Mix-Up?


    LPA Monthly Mix-Up is a new and ambitious concept intended to showcase the massive amount of musical talent currently unheard among the Linkin Park fan community. Every month, we here at the LPA will be challenging fans to compete and show off their musical skills, using any and all tools available to them to create their entry. At the conclusion of each competition period, our staff will then go through each entry submitted, and pick our absolute favorite to be featured on the site as the "Winner Of The Month" with the next round of competition starting the moment the winner from the previous month is chosen. To promote fairness, runner ups will also be shown, but only one Linkin Park fan will walk away with the honor of being featured as the "Monthly Winner"

    So, How Does It Work? (Official Rules)
    In order to make the contest more interesting and more challenging for those who enter, every month we will be posting a theme that all entrants are required to abide by to be considered for feature on the site. There will be no limitations on key, BPM or length (so go ahead and make a 10 minute entry!), but each submission MUST adhere to the genre (or genres) provided by us to be eligible for the competition.

    Users must submit their entry as a reply to the this thread, and may use SoundCloud or YouTube to host their works. All SoundCloud submissions must feature THIS GRAPHIC as the album art, and likewise all YouTube videos must contain the aforementioned graphic in some format with the words "LPASSOCIATION.COM Monthly Mix-Up Entry:" appearing somewhere within the video/soundcloud upload title. This is done to help spread word about the monthly competitions so that more submissions can be made possible.

    [Note: Including the above graphic in your submission (as either soundcloud album art, or somewhere in your youtube video) is a requirement. Failure to do so will make your entry unable to be considered in the competition. ALSO IF YOU USE SOUNDCLOUD, PLEASE ENABLE DOWNLOADS OF YOUR TRACK AS WELL AS EMBEDDING.]

    ALSO ALL ENTRIES MUST BE COMPLETELY ORIGINAL, AND MAY NOT CONTAIN BACKGROUND MUSIC FROM ANOTHER ARTIST. THIS IS YOUR OWN WORK, APART FROM THE LINKIN PARK VOCALS.


    The Linkin Park Association will NOT be providing links to legit instrumentals/multitracks at this time (due to licensing/copyright restrictions), so it is the sole responsibility of the entrants to obtain the files needed to create their entries. It is possible (and very easy) to find these tracks via a search in Google, however; to protect ourselves we will not be hosting these files until we one day hopefully receive permission from Warner Brothers to do so.


    How Can I Enter?
    Easy! Just upload your submission to Soundcloud/YouTube following the rules above, and submit it via a reply to this thread. One month from today's date (March 1st, 2012) we will go through every submission and pick our favorite(s) for feature on the front page of the LPA. We encourage everyone to submit their entries (regardless of technical/musical/vocal proficiency) as we really would like this project to become something that every fan feels welcome to become involved in. The staff here all agree that the music community for Linkin Park has for the most part (apart from official competitions) gone completely unnoticed, and this is our way of giving attention to fans out there looking to get their talents heard!


    Now That We Have That Out Of The Way...


    Our official theme for the month of FEBRUARY is:

    Burning In The Skies Free For All

    (FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER: YOU PICK WHICH GENRE TO DO!)




    We used a contest to make the tempo rise, the LPA Monthly Mix-Up: Burning In The Skies! Yes that's right folks, you read correctly. Using any genre you like (with the exception of mashups), create your own amazing remix of Burning In The Skies for entry in this month's competition. Entries must contain all original music, and may not sample or use the background music of any other artist (although you may use instruments from Burning In The Skies if you wish). The only requirement is that you remix Burning In The Skies. The genre, BPM, length etc...is all yours to choose! We've never done this before, but with February marking the 1 year Anniversary of the BITS music video, we thought there would be no better way to celebrate than making BITS the focus of this month's competition. Here is your chance to show off your true talents, by remixing in a genre you feel most comfortable with: your own. May the best remix win!
    The LPA is self funded. We support our hosting costs out of pocket and through ads, and although we do not expect our users to donate...any monetary contribution helps.

    This is going to be very interesting. Btw what about the results of the Janurary one?

    It's going to be hard remixing this song. The time signature changes throughout.

    I'll be skipping this one
    I make money.

    Results now posted. And also, of course it's going to be challenging. You didn't think we'd make it TOTALLY easy did you?

    Looks like this could be another cool month of remixes!

    Hoping I might be able to enter this month if I can finish a couple of other projects in time.

    Just a quick clarification - even though we have free choice of genre, does it need to adhere strictly to one particular, recognizable genre, or can we inject a mixture of influences/styles? This all seems rather exciting old chaps
    BundleOfNerves: Mike just comes out of the gates swinging, though.
    Thanks LPA for selecting me as 'Monthly Mix-Up' Winner for:
    October '11 (Dance-Pop), November '11 (Mash-Ups), March '12 (Hip Hop) and November '12 (Castle Of Glass)
    and as a Runner-Up for: July '12 (Burn It Down) and October '12 (I'll Be Gone/Victimized/In My Remains).

    Check out a whole host of awesome winners and runners-up right here: http://www.lpassociation.com/forums/...ad.php?t=35375

    This month's theme is trash - gives no one any creative freedom at all.

    Just asking to the hosters
    Are we allowed to sample stuff like a kick or so of another song like paper planes or stuff?

    I'm not sure how this fits in with the rules. I guess it's technically a mashup but the background music is actually my own song that I made myself. There's also a LTGYA ending. I can do something else, though, let me know! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6HB7kALIg8

    3/4 (or 6/8, whichever makes you happy) for verse, 4/4 for chorus. tricky song to mash-up
