if you guys have any suggestions to make the NAC better aside from contest ideas let me know! I have decided to ignore the request to have a summer break for the NACS as the NACS are monthly, and should be monthly.

would it be ok if not every time but every once in a while if those who participate in the nac to vote for the kind/genre of music they would like to make

i was thinking like the main judges could come up with a couple different types and then let the rest of us vote otherwise its likely that you get to many people voting for something stupid or random and you wouldnt get many votes on the ideas.

i dont participate yet but when i start i think it would be a cool feature

this was already discussed and it was decided that those that run the contests should be the ones that make the ideas - you can suggest ideas to us and we can consider them - but if we let you choose then it only leads to butthurtery.

i was thinking like the main judges could come up with a couple different types and then let the rest of us vote otherwise its likely that you get to many people voting for something stupid or random and you wouldnt get many votes on the ideas.

we used to have that for the MACs.. we could revisit that - I believe that Maestrorage was the one that first pioneered that line of thinking here.

i dont participate yet but when i start i think it would be a cool feature

so why don't you participate? Perhaps we should leave suggestions to those that actually do..?

How about an NAC where you have to make a piece of music that tells a specific story that is commonly available on the internet to read.. one of Edgar Allan Poe's pieces of work for instance [just an example]

I can imagine that getting people to all do their own version of how they interpret 'The Raven' would be pretty interesting.

internet people dont read long boring exerpts - TL;DR

By the sounds of it I guess I overestimate the other musicians on this site then.
In that case then how about making music about very well known films.
Or for instance music based upon characters from the Marvel Comics universe etc.

K, so you motivated me to work.

Thing is, first day I've been messing around creating soundscapes. It was uninspired suckage. Two days after that I had a way better idea that's been working out well so far. I'm not done composing it though, and I haven't even started working on the mix yet either! If I had more time, I would have at least watched a zombie movie to inspire myself. Also fieldrecording; a luxury that would eat up way too much of my time right now. It'd be way better, yeah yeah blablah.

Even if I were to finish it up real quick, I'm a little worried it won't be finished by tonight.

:(. I was actually thinking of asking to judge sometime. I think it's kinda unfair that you judge someone on their age but a rule is a rule...
