I'm confirming, though I don't really have anything to present, fault given to the fact the deadline's too close from the MAC's deadline :\

I did do some research, and am currently transcribing some Avishai Cohen (Original), for the sake of fully understanding the concept (and also just because it's awesome).

Anyways, give or take, I'll get to work as soon as I get back home, I'm currently on the go right now.

I'm confirming. Don't really have anything to show, but I've been listening to swedish trance artists and trying to emulate their sound. Specifically Marcus Schossow, because he has a very unique style.


Very Nice.

Thanks for your confirmation guys!

So far we've had 6 confirmed out of 20. Very disappointing effort.

I guess they're either working too hard on their song to reply, or they simply feel their active participation in the thread makes up for it.

Also, perhaps simply because they signed up only recently? I don't really feel they'd actually need to confirm their participation if they only JUST asked to participate...

In any case, hard at work on my piece right now, I'll eventually post a WIP. It's quite different from what I first had in mind, but I really like how it's turning out too, so I don't mind! :3

Sorry for being a bit late as well. I didn't realise I had to confirm again myself because I assumed my previous activity in the thread would cover it, so sorry about that.

As i've mentioned earlier in the thread, the recording for mine has been completed it's just i'm finding it hard to get the time to mix in. But another few weeks left till deadline? I'm sure i'll get it to some level i'm happy enough with by then so not too worried.

I made it very clear in messages and emails that people had to get in touch. However I do understand where people may be so confused. Anyway, so far now 9 people have confirmed so it's on the up! People who applied last week will also be counted as confirmed. Anyone else should post here or get in touch, otherwise I'll have to chase them up about it.

Thanks everyone who has confirmed and I'm glad to hear that the pieces are going well. We have just over 3 weeks until the deadline! The day after the deadline the running order and voting blocks will be revealed. Make sure you all stick around because your votes are required for the results!

I'm not quite sure how I could confirm that I've been listening and emulating American composers for the last 6 years. Specific concentration on Bernstein, Gershwin, Hayes, Williams, Horner, Giacchino, Copland, Harris, and Berlin just to name a few off the top of my head. I've also been a music major at an American university the last 2 years. Also I have about 3 tracks going for this comp already and haven't chosen which to concentrate on yet. Does that provide enough confirmation?

It's really much more of a Smooth-Jazz Funk track, hope y'all enjoy!

I did indeed write that on purpose. Everywhere, as in all around the world :)

That wasn't the finalized image, though, so you guys can expect some minor changes/improvements on the actual thing!

NeonProject my recording is now about 90% finished and i'll be uploading it shortly to get some feedback on the mix before the deadline however It's only 2:55 and looking back at the rules "Your track must be between 3:00 minutes and 4:00 minutes. In extreme circumstances we will allow ten seconds over and under."

I'm hoping I can become one of those "extreme circumstances"?

So here's my 90% complete submission, hopefully it links properly in the forum because I've never done that before.

As my previous post said I'm looking for some feedback on the overall mix. I haven't been able to put as much time as I would have liked so there's some elements I'm not sure about. At the moment I feel the bass + kick drum might be drowning a few of the other instruments out while at the same time kind of works or at least I feel it does. Anyway any feedback will obviously help.

Reviewed in the track in my rap account (AxTekk) by accident, the song sounded VERY recognisably Turkish. Tis good stuff.
