Thanks for your patience folks!
Here is the official launch of the TON contest:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nEXW0JPoys


The theme has been chosen as "Disney" by popular vote by members, and after much discussion amongst staff.

Details:

1. Select and Practice any Disney song of your choice, on the ocarina

2. Record sound or video of yourself playing a Disney song using an ocarina (and other instruments/musicians too if wanted)

3. Upload that video to Youtube as a VIDEO RESPONSE to the video.


-Deadline: FEB 28th 2013 (on the slowest timezone)

-There will be prizes for videos picked by judges, as well as prizes picked completely at random. So everyone who enters has a chance to win!



So get those ocarinas playing, and those cameras rolling!
Lookin' forward to seeing all the entries!

The major prize is the Songbird Dragon Tooth ocarina, but there will be several other prizes too (yet to be fully determined).

Would Studio Ghibli music qualify as Disney since their movies were released by them?

I'm definitely doing a Ghibli song under the pretext that they're distributed by Disney as long as I don't get in trouble.

So many Disney songs to choose from... I'm tempted to do a piece from camp rock. I'm actually really exited to participate.

@suki I'll assume you mean that it's allowed though I am still confused.

You make a video response when you click to leave a comment. It should also say "make a video response". Hope it helps. :3

Since Disney bought Lucasfilms last year, do the Star Wars and Indiana Jones songs qualify as Disney songs now?

So... If someone can only record the sound, what would be acceptable for the video part? Is it acceptable to use a relevant clip from the Disney movie? :?

Edit: I figured out something for the video to keep eyes entertained while the ears listened. :D

Several questions:

-Are variations upon a song, or medleys, rather than the original songs themselves, allowed ?
-Is it allowed to edit sound, especially to add several tracks when I can't find other people willing to perform with me?

Anyway, definitely entering it as a fan of Hisaishi's work :D

I was talking to Jack (Elvenspellmaker) and he had no objections to multiple tracks nor medleys so I think those would be allowed.

How exciting! I'll have to make a trip to the music store and see what kind of sheet music I can dig up. I know there are some Disney songs there are tabs and sheets for ocarinas already floating around but I'd love to find something less played that probably nobody else will choose, and possibly something with piano or guitar accompaniment, or at least a backtrack or something.

All I'll say is that all we have said is "Play a Disney Song".
I'm very happy to leave that open to interpretation.

in other words, as long as it's a "Disney Song" in some shape or form, it's fine.
I actually think it's satirically humorous that Disney has becoming such a huge enterprise that owns other franchises, and we're making a point out of it with our song choices LOL

It is clearly stated in the video and instructions that there are no restrictions on how you play the song, as long as an ocarina is involved in playing the song (assuming it to be the main instrument).

Other than that, you have complete freedom on how to make your project.
Although we said "choose a Disney Song", if you really feel like doing multiple songs as a medley, I see nothing wrong with that. It sounds like a fun idea.

The song I want to play is something I loved all through my childhood, but it's so... simple... but at the same time I think I could actually play the backing track on my keyboard myself. Hmm... simple and sweet or reach for the stars...

Ugh. It is taking SO LONG to upload but youtube lowers the sound quality if the picture is not in HD. Thanks for that Youtube! XP God I need a PC, I wonder how much they are going for these days... I'll go look. BRB ...What!? My laptop was almost twice that much! :mad: I think i'll go take a nap now. :giveup:

I have a song in mind I'd like to do. I found sheets for it, but I don't have a good mic. I may be in this, I'll have to see. I have some interesting instrument accompaniment I could do, but I guess it depends on my mic situation.

The song I have in mind isn't from this series, but I wonder if Kingdom Hearts songs are allowed, since Disney has a say in those games as well? :P

Copycat, I was thinking of doing a KH piece, although I decided on something else now... although I need a SG Ocarina.

Grimat, I'm sure someone could transpose the sheets for you, and there are several sites that will transpose a back track, too. I don't see why you have to buy a new ocarina for this contsest.
