In case you wanted to know, these were the challenges:
PHASE 1: Simple. (May 16th - May30th) This "simply" means that you can only use FOUR instruments maximum (don't worry, an basic drumset - kick, snare, hi-hat, cymbals, toms - counts as a single instrument). Simple is beautiful.
Fun fact - the original number was 3, but it was changed to 4 so that people could have a lead instrument, chordal instrument, bass, and drums. This may be changed to 3 in the future though, so be ready!
PHASE 2: Timed.(June 3rd - June 6th) In the real world, there are deadlines. This can mean that you have to make music RIGHT NOW. This challenge will reduce the time you have to create a piece to only 3 days!
Fun fact - this challenge was the hardest to come up with. There are currently two other possibilities which may be used in the future, but they're a bit more complicated and would need an "ok" from the community first. We'll ask at the conclusion of this contest. :)
PHASE 3: Inspired! (June 10th - June 24th) What are you inspired to make? There is no actual limit on this phase aside from the normal deadline. Make whatever you want... as long as it sticks to the theme, of course.
Fun fact - this "challenge" will always be the phase 3 of the contest, regardless of the other two phases. See, I can be nice sometimes!
