Start from Scratch Challenge

Start from Scratch Challenge – Apocalypse – Win sound packs for your studio!
 
For the next two months, Soundation invites you to make music for the 1984-style dystopia. From a bombed-out wasteland, a mutated wilderness to a totalitarian state, the recent surge of on-screen dystopian tales reflects our increasing preoccupation with apocalyptic visions. And of course the bleak, mystic, fear-inducing music that comes with it.
 
Think Wendy Carlos’s eerie synth rendition of Beethoven’s tune in a dystopian classic A Clockwork Orange, the haunting melodies by Ben Salisbury that soundtrack a twisted sort of paradise in Annihilation and the spine tinkling sounds that accompany harrowing scenes in Chernobyl. In the gaming world, how could we not mention Gustavo Santaolalla’s solemn soundtrack for a zombie apocalypse in The Last of Us? Yet music for the apocalyptic world doesn’t need to be all bleak and contemplative.
A syrupy House tune against a backdrop of a deserted industrial land by Maceo Plex proves that music for the dystopia can be all grooves and moves.
 
In case you need help, find a dystopian plot generator on Google. It’s pretty fun. 😄
 
Submit an original track based on a theme of Apocalypse before the deadline (29 November 2019, 23:00 CET) and 3 winners – users with the most unique, creative and theme-relevant track – will get to pick any 3 items from our Sound Shop, get their track featured and have their work published on our social media.

Also, do you have to make your own sounds or can you use sounds from the sound library when you enter a challenge?

I would love to enter this challenge, but I don't have any social media. Do you have to have social media to enter a challenge? Sorry I'm new here.
