I truly hope that TheBenjerman will be able to make something with his current setup, I don't want an unfair advantage!

I'm thinking I'll have to use the piece I threw together before I left LA as a "just in case I don't have time to write something while I'm on vacation."

I kinda like it tho and it should follow all rules, so we'll see what happens!

I don't know how Mr. Tibbetts' piece is coming along, but I'm done with the actual writing process. I'll probably be spending a good chunk of tomorrow mixing and mastering my entry. I'm about 98% happy with my track; I have a feeling I'll want to add more to it after NGADM.

I'm about the same, just got some final weirdness in some transitions i've got to hammer out. It will be interesting to see what midimachine posts. I feel that after these many years of producing i might at least provide a good challenge, and that is all i hope i have done, is improve :3 (especially since the last time i was in this competition i posted a really weird song that now looking back probably wasn't my best lol)

I just had a chat with wurfel-waffles this morning and he insisted me not to look into a few earlier pages of Ngadm or else I will be in shock. I don't know if he tries to pull a prank on me or what but what had happened to this contest? Anything exciting or shocking (as waffle dude stated)?

O god I miss so much. I'll missing another 3 years for this contest then. Will be back in 2016, hopefully.

Is it your army training that you'll be tending to over those three years?
And Waffles is right, but I just cannot afford to mention it anymore.

I am so sorry for what happen/ed. For now, I think we are better to keep quiet and let the mods do their thing. I feel like I'm a part of this because he's one of our active colleague in business.

Back for about 2 month before heading on for real training and duties. I have sometime to upload new music. But I am sure I will miss this contest and friends on here more than anything else.

But now that I've settled on something, things should pick up. I hope my opponent is cooking up something good. >:)

Is anyone else as far behind as I?

I'm roughly at the pace as you my friend, this will be an interesting first round. Again best of luck and can't wait to hear what you've got!

Just be sure that whatever you do, stay alive and well. I read one of your comments about that mission you said you'd undergo.

I've attended National Service for three months, some time before I came to the UK, and I only have a taste of what it feels like. You are going through the real deal... Tell us when you do go back to your training, I'll be sure to keep you in my prayers and thoughts.

And in true army ethic, we're saddened by what's going on but we must straddle on anyhow.

salute

Good to know that other people are in the same position. I look forward to hearing your piece as well!

So for mine, I'm going out of my comfort zone and trying something experimental. What about the rest of you? Are you sticking to your usual stylistic tendencies or testing the waters with something outside the norm?

Most of the time, I experiment with different styles, so for once I'm sticking solely to orchestral :)

I am going for trouse, which is a mixture between progressive house and trance. Yes, that's considered an official genre.

Trouse and general rock.... I wonder what kind of a combination that's going to give the judges...

Dang, what's the point in stealing a track? Is it not fun to write music for some folks? D: I'm so glad I made it in the auditions, there's nothing like a little motivation to get me writing again. It feels great! Thank you NGADM. C:

My track is nearly done, I've just got to record the vocals. many takes, many hours. I should be done by deadline time though.

Hope everyone's submissions are coming along well. I'm expecting a load of submissions coming through within the next few days. Like I said before, remember that you can still submit a work in progress if you don't finish in time. You might end up doing well with it, and anyway nobody likes walkovers right?

Well in all fairness you're not the one who started four days before the deadline :3.

I realise that I could've worked on this a little more, but I was too afraid to get caught up in the process of fixing all these super-tiny issues and eventually pass the deadline before they were all fixed. All the best, Trois!

I can see why you named this piece 'Rush Hour'. All the best to you too. <3
