Default Win $500 and particpiate in the remixSite Composition Combat!

STATE COLLEGE, PA (October 3, 2009) - Today, the remixSite Group announced the remixSite Composition Combat. From October 17 to November 29, video game music artists around the world are invited to participate in this ultimate competition to create the best original work for a role playing game.

Unlike many competitions that consist primarily of remixes of existing songs, works submitted to Composition Combat must be entirely original and must conform to a specific theme, which will be announced on the day the competition begins. Songs will be judged by the community at the remixSite video game music site.

"The video game music community contains a lot of great talent. Music is one of the most significant experiences in a video game, and the quality of music accompanying gameplay can really make or break a game." said remixSite Group director Steve Sokolowski. "There are a lot of amazing musicians in the video game music community, and I'm sure many are looking forward to competing for the top prize and listening to the best the community has to offer."

The winner of the competition will receive $500 cash, with the runner up receiving a new video game of his or her choice on any game system (maximum value of $59.99). A $30 cash prize will also be available for the song that has "most improved" between its initial and final revisions. Instead of a judges panel deciding upon the winners, community members will vote upon the best music using the previously established remixSite reviews system. After the competition period ends at 6:00pm EST on November 29, 2009, a reviewing period will open for all visitors, including non-competitors, to submit their reviews. The winner will be announced in December, with the highest-rated competitor receiving a prize of $500 cash.

In addition to competing for one of the largest prizes in the history of the video game music community, competitors have the potential for valuable exposure to the game music industry. The winner of the competition will have his or her work featured on remixSite after the conclusion of the challenge. The winning work will be publicized to community sites and to game companies.

Since collaboration and learning are a major part of remixSite's mission, participants will revise their songs as they are developed using the remixSite web interface. The revisions system allows artists to receive feedback from community members as their songs are developed.

To be eligible for the competition, participants must register a free account at the remixSite website and post their intention to compete at the remixSite forums at The remixSite website will be updated with the competition's official logo and additional information as it becomes available. Detailed rules and regulations regarding the remixSite Composition Combat are available at the remixSite website at
