THE CHALLENGER WANTED 2017 (English)

Submission Deadline:
March 6th, 2017 11:59 pm (JST)

Dear, Mr. HIROSHI WATANABE

We are accepting entries for a compilation album featuring remixes of select tracks by Hiroshi Watanabe planned for release at the Spring 2017 M3 event.
The submission guidelines are as follows:

- Must be a remix of these tracks

CYGNUS (from AHI COMPILATION 06 by Akihabara Heavy Industries)
The Constellations (from AD: Techno 2)

(Stems for each piece can be downloaded by clicking on the respective link. These will be available until the submission deadline.)

- Must be no longer than eight minutes in length

Any entries found to have used samples illegally will be immediately disqualified.
There are no restrictions with regards to genre. If a piece uses the stems provided,
they may be uploaded to Soundcloud and similar sites should they not be accepted,
but only if they were intended for submission (applies to anything unable to be finished before the deadline).

Additionally, the terms of usage for the stems may change at any time (this is a new venture for us, so we ask for your understanding).

Akihabara Heavy Industries and ourselves solely reserve the right to decide selections for the album, although we may request the opinion of other parties.

The above rules also apply to anyone commissioned by either organization for this album.

works.7

We are planning to release a seventh album in our “works” series at the Spring 2017 M3 event. The submission guidelines are as follows:

- Must be 120 BPM
- Must be suitable for listening while engaged in tasks involving light labor, such as packaging CDs into boxes
- Must be an original, unreleased piece or a permitted remix (no extended versions of previous releases or submissions to past contests run by Diverse System or other organizations)
- Must be no longer than six minutes in length

Any entries found to have used samples illegally will be immediately disqualified.

Please use previous releases as a reference to the musical atmosphere we are seeking.
works.4
works.5
works.6

We would like to note that 4, 5, and 6 all had many tracks that we feel are too energetic, so we encourage submissions that are slightly more relaxed in comparison.
Deviations from common time are also recommended.
This will not affect judging results unless we receive too many energetic submissions.

We solely reserve the right to decide selections for the album,
although we may request the opinion of other parties.

The above rules also apply to anyone we have approached to contribute to this album.
