Since you ARE new, you must pay a non refundable fee of 20 dollars to each of the other NGADM contestants, and then provide sexual favors to all of the judges, and then you lose!

Otherwise no, just the best piece you can make within the time.

I had no problem with this until I read again and saw the 20 dollars part.

Nope, no limits. Just remember that if you're going to give us 9 minutes of music, make sure it keeps us interested for the whole 9 minutes. The longer your track, the harder it is to keep a listener interested till the end, and if you don't have enough variety and to compel the judges to hear the whole thing, then marks will be reduced.

Goody! If you thought Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle was long (about 40 hours of operatic music), just WAIT until you hear my NGADM submission :D

I wish I could write 40 hours of music in 2 weeks. That would be awesome.

I'll be damned (and honored) if I got to pair with Bosa. Of course I am going to have to pass this first round. Same goes to BlazingDragon and Samulis (if by magic he beats Bosa).

The thing about our side of the round, at least, is that we never know what's going to happen or who's going to win. Makes it all the more exciting, I suppose.

I have to go against Bosa? I will be amazed if my music even draws close to his.

Didn't make it. Actually I was kind of hoping I wouldn't, I've too much to do as it is. Good luck in tourney, those that made it in there.


Need some music for a flash or game? Check it out. If none of this works send me a PM, I'm taking requests.

Speaking of out of my mind, only ten days and I have come up for three intros for three different songs without even finishing one.

BlazingDragon, best of luck this round! I'll be giving you a challenge lol.

I'm listening to Shaolin. Cool stuff, especially with the choirs in the background. Good luck! >:D

Same here. Any of you three would be an awesome challenge, among other people.

Been working on a sick heavy, groovy track and I've been learning how to master the mix. Fun times, looks like I've got some good competition too, don't think I'll last long in this haha.

So, how are everyone's submissions coming along? If you're having trouble making something, a good strategy is listening to existing songs in the genre you're making to get some inspiration. If you don't finish something in time, submit your unfinished track anyway; you never know! And remember that if you think you can't make it in time, tell me and I can invite someone who didn't make it into the contest to take your place.

My submission is 1/3 done at the moment. Minus the vocal bit, so that makes it 1/4 done.
I do certainly hope that the final result is as powerful as I intend it to be.

Huh, since I lost/disqualified my music in another big competition. I am going to use one of my 'loser' songs in this competition (all composed within the given days of 1st round). Maybe will tweak them a little bit...

I suppose I better go ahead and submit my track before I forget to do so, and before Step starts to stutter and sweat.
I admit that I'm not a very good composer, and my music will never be comparable to any other musician on this site, but I do hope that I will at least be able to support this contest by participating.

Once our tracks are complete, do we post them in here or will there be a separate thread for entries? Or do we need to tag our tracks with something specific like "ngadm12"?

But it will be done in time. Now to figure out what kind of piece to make...
