Executable Music


  1. Hand-in

    • Entries in the music competitions must be delivered through the web-based compo system.
    • All entries must be delivered as a Zip or Rar file containing the track itself and a short text file (file_id.diz/.nfo/.txt) with information about the entry (author, track name, additional credits) as well as contact info.
    • The entry has to be an executable program, in a suitable format for the target platform.
    • A description of required plug-ins or hardware to play back your entry.
  2. Size limit

    Maximum size of the executable: 32768 bytes (32k). General information files do not count into this limit.

  3. Allowed platforms

    Any platform with a 32 bit or better CPU that is able to generate sound. The entry is required to include a WAV writer.

  4. Special exception

    Instead of an .exe file, you may also deliver an .ssp file that will be played with the SaneStation player

    To use SaneStation, you need a VST-host, i.e. Reaper for Windows and OS X (don't worry, the trial should do the trick), Cubase or Renoise (Windows, Linux, and OS X).

  5. Pre-selection

    This is a fun compo, and we will try to play all entries for the audience. If there are more entries than we have time for, we might cut tracks based on our own perception of entertainment value and production quality.

  6. Maximum length

    Three (3) minutes.

    Don't take this as an obligation to actually fill three minutes.

  7. Deciding a winner

    The winner will be chosen by popular vote.
