yes, but where is anyone here going to get a full piece choir hmm? Also you seem to ave missed the part in the contest criteria about the whole thing being combined with a driving beatEastWest Symphonic Choirs. 80% of the people who enter these contests seem to have EWQL products, so there is no reason not to.
fine but they will be wordless choirs.
I'm sure you can all figure that out - and if not - then go back to school becasue you apparently can't read and comprehend what is written to you.Insulting the people who would enter the contest is not a very good idea. Besides, I don't think you're one to talk about going back to school seeing as, in both this thread and every competition post, there are innumerable spelling and grammar errors.
I don't make grammar errors. Spelling errors? Sure I make those all the time because I'm dyslexic - thanks for calling me out on a disorder.
I can read. I can comprehend what you've written. Have you considered that maybe you're just not very good at explaining the details of the contest? Or that, perhaps, this is the exact kind of genre-restricting contest many of us are trying to avoid? Or that the contest prompt just wasn't that good in the first place?
I do believe I wrote very extensively the criteria for the contest. Also It's not genre restricting to the extent you think it is. "Driving beat" does not mean techno - in fact - the examples I provided AREN'T techno. Trance and house are not techno.
Basically provide a beat with a song that provides heavenly/blissful progressions - make it sound airy, beautiful, accented with beautiful things.
Things like foresty flutes. Those are beautiful.
Things like airy pianos and harps and choirs. Those are beautiful.
Things like celestial bells and waves and starry synths. Those are beautiful.
Things like wind and more classical instruments - focusing on the high octaves and the high end of the spectrum. Give the user the feeling he is sailing away into the louds. That is beautiful.
Before placing the blame on everyone else, take a step back. Look at other posts from the past: there are several people who would rather not write in a specific style. Sure, there can be genre specific contests -- 8bit, orchestral, advertising, 'Russian,' film, or video games, for example: but those are good genre restrictions, because they still allow for a lot of personal style and development. On the other hand, your examples basically show that you want us to write techno that is, frankly, pretty much indistinguishable from any other techno.
wrong. I believe that how I described the criteria just above your paragraph should give you a better idea. Imagine god told you to make as song worthy of the heavens but he wanted to be able to groove to it. Think on that. And no mention of the devil please.
And no.. country wouldn't really be fitting.
so far mrmilkcarton's feel has hit the nail on the head. THATS the feeling I want you all to portray - that uplifting blissful joyful feel. Heck his could have gone even further and added more heavenly embellishments in the progression parts.
and blackhole.. itt is indeed beautiful.. it may be a bit too somber in parts, but if you took the idea of that wonderful piano and the harp, and added a wonderful lighthearted percussion to it - driving but not heavy. I guess the word would be articulate, graceful.. something youd expct angels or elves to make. Delicate, beautiful, with a beautiful percussion to make. See it's easy to make an ambiant song, but people always then deprive them of percussion - I want to see the 2 combined so that you could dance to it in heaven, or in a forest full of elves. Or in the far expanses of the universe. Try to envision that :)
