NeOST is a weekly song prompt that challenges you to make soundtracks for media that doesn't exist. Each prompt will present a familiar scenario or design problem from famous media. Participants will create soundtracks for these scenarios using samples that I have provided.

NeOST_6 - "Shop"


With the samples provided, write music for a place of commerce. The specifics of the shop and its source media are for you to explore.

The deadline for NeOST_6 is end-of-day Monday, March 8. All submissions made on time will be grouped into a Soundcloud playlist. The samples can be downloaded here: https://we.tl/t-tc9DYUyeX5

really happy with this! its got some flaws and it's pretty short (both the a and b sections could use more development i think) but im still very happy with it, especially since i never finish anything ever normally (time limits really help with that)

oh also im not sure how much i actually stuck to the theme. but whatever.

man it's like... amazing how much the one-week limit (and the expectation of everything being casual) actually helped my creativity. it freed me to spend less effort on making everything perfect or cramming too many ideas into a single phrase/measure, so paradoxically having a short time limit meant that i ended up with a longer actual song. im gonna try to do this again!! try to learn how to harness that feeling, so i can rein in my perfectionism for my own personal stuff

@ANDREA this is fantastic!! and I'm happy to hear that the limitations of the prompt have been helpful for you. I also find them super helpful. Great submission and I hope you do another :mrgreen2:
