18 Applicants so far! Just 2 off of my target of 20, let's see if we can reach that before we reach midnight!
I think we've had a good opening few days so far though, I'm really excited to see the work produced and I think that the contest will be very interesting this time!

Since the deadline is 16 September and it's a very special day for quite a chunk of us Britons (Englishmen especially), and since I've noticed there are a few who are taking part in the NGADM as well as this, I'm saying....

YES. Count me in. I'm sealing my entry.

Name Of Act: Troisnyx
Country: United Kingdom
Genre: TBA, but most likely something orchestral, or something reminiscent of a ceilidh.
Name of Track: TBA

WHY MUST YOU PUT SUCH A HEAVY BURDEN ON MY SHOULDERS? OH WOE IS ME
...But seriously, though, I have very little knowledge about traditional Malay music, so hopefully, with a crash course in Malay music history, I won't screw up. HOPEFULLY
Burden? More like a challenge! I grew up literally having all the different traditional musical forms from every single state rammed down my throat at one point in time during my primary/secondary school years. That was a burden. Now I would have loved to be encouraged to read up more on Palestrina and Thomas Tallis (something which I have the occasion to do now), but hey, there you go.

Ah, Tallis, that guy composed some of my favorite Church Chorals of all time, including Spem in Alium!

Glad to know we share tastes!

If I recall correctly (read: better than last try), Birdy already reserved Canada, and Artic/Antartica aren't countries but rather continents, hence disqualifying them from the available countries.

Please try again later!

Canada and the United Kingdom have been taken :/
Also Antarctica doesn't count as a country...

Why not try Iceland, Finland, Sweden or Russia?

If someone takes sub-saharan Africa it'll be quite interesting to watch his submission.

I thought you were representing Turkey again! :/ I can put you down for Estonia if you'd prefer that.

Ah HA! I knew it! My wife said I didn't have to do Turkey!

Yeah, I'll do Turkey again, no problem. I'll have to come up with a genre now. Maybe Turkish black metal, all lo-fi 'n' shit...

If it's feasible, I'd like to take on two separate songs for this competition, one representing France, and the other one representing Senegal!

I've already got the base groove set up, and I feel I can manage to work on two projects on this competition as well as the NGADM.

I'll add your application for Senegal

It's completely up to you! You don't have to be Turkey, you can still be Estonia if you want!
