At Evoke 2018 i have done three things to participate at the competitions. First a picture, ranked 13th of 22 at the Freestyle Graphics Compo and a CPC Soundtrakker tune, I uploaded as MP3/OGG entry, because there was no tracker combo 🙁 My MP3-Version of the tracked music did not made it through the preselection :-D.
Here is the picture. As I had no graphics Program on my laptop (deleted all for music stuff for holidays) and didn’t get into GIMP fast enough so I used my iPad and ProCreate to do that thing. As I lost my Apple Pencil all was done “by Hand” 🙂

To be the only German on a French CPC-Party is not that weird as I expected, A lot of the French CPC-guys speak English and they use it. So understanding was not that problem at all.
I tested STarKos-Tracker and found some irritating bugs, but Thargan made clear, those are features and he will not code them away 🙂 So I found some nice “hidden” features instead. To participate on the music competition, I used Soundtrakker on which I remembered all of the shortcuts and also how to switch the info-slices on the software. So I made a nice little sound. I expected to get under the top three at the competition and as I was the only one who take part at the competition I surprisingly made the third place. Yay! Better than at the revision 🙂 I’m a happy Kangaroo.
Oh, have I mentioned, that my car broke and had an engine error. So first as I arrived in Coutances I went to the local Ford dealer, and with hands and feet I declared my car broken 🙂 And they checked it and repaired it within 40 minutes. Lucky me. 50 Euros and a “Zündkerze” later everything was well again.
I participated at the Paintover Competition at Revision 2018, but they rejected my entry, so it was not shown to the audience. Sad. So Sad 🙂 OK, maybe my painting-skillz are too bad at all. And yes, it was my very first try. I don’t paint. But: i’ve tried.
The aim of the Paintover Competition is: you’ll get a chaotic image and you need to use your imagination to get some objects on it. Then you sketch them and paint your image in four steps. Maybe i was not accepted because i missed to add my tools i used, as they requested as a must. I didn’t read the rules completely and so i just didn’t added my Tools, which was my iPad and ProCreate, a nice little Painting-App. But i think its my drawing-style what got me rejected from the competition. You decide:
Maybe it also was because i added Text. Who knows. The quality, the missing listing of my used tools or the Text. I will try again next year.

It’s the fifth time that i am participating at the streaming music competition at Revision Easter-Party. Most of the entries are kind of Dance, Techno or other kind of “umz umz umz”-music. I prefer to do something other. This year I submitted a song called “Jesus died for us to party” which was inspired by a discussion about Jesus and God i had with cosowi / Plush last year. The song was played first and reached the 8th place.
Altogether 27 pieces were submitted, so that my result is not so bad. Unfortunately it was also this year that the big screen only reached the 7th place and so my name was again not on the wall 🙂
