Yessir. Even if someone submitted a techno song, they would still be considered a contestant. I'm just saying that a film score or some classical period piece has a better chance of winning rather than a modern new age track.

Feel free to use medieval or world instruments if you want

Is the deadline 12:00 am as in now 12:00 am or 24 hours 12:00 am?

If it's the former, could you extend the deadline pweeeeease? I lost power because of hurricane sandy and I have something really good that I started about a couple of hours ago.

Also, it aptly sounds as if I was in that power outage.

Also, you've got until the 7th of November, so you've still got over a week left.

I actually had a power outage last night. Damn you, Sandy...

You can look at the time as in 24 hours -- 0:00.00 is the deadline, or 23:59.99 is the exact time. If I extend the deadline anymore, then you all will procrastinate and the music will be bogus.

I wrote this when I thought the deadline was still the 1st. And I did my 'month math' wrong.

This is actually coming out surprisingly good so far... I should be doing classical more often.

4:20 in and I've got more to go but I'll probably finish by the end of Sunday.

How do you feel about Rhapsodies, Bosa?

This message was absolutely necessary.

Four days... I'll have to wait till my computer is fixed (which is either today or tomorrow), and then finish up that musical setting I promised myself I'd finish.

Welp, the moment you start to arrange all the instruments then snap, you just totally forgot what to do next.

Screw it, I am throwing out my best piece. Wanted to save it for later stuff. It's not just procrastination; I have a quite busy life to deal with.

also thanked to my cousin tortured me with Oppa Gangnam Style...

I'm running on full capacity again! I should hope to do the music by today, and the vocals by tomorrow or Tuesday. Again, "hope". I'm doing this by estimation right now because I don't have a good headset anymore.

Sounds fun, but I'm going to have to sit this one out. My desktop is hardly functional and it seems like my laptop is going to the blue screen of death every other time it starts up. That, and school is keeping me very occupied. Good luck to everyone participating though. I'll listen to the entries!

Finished at last. I'm going to wait a bit and listen to my piece again later, in case i've done something wrong.
I should submit my entry by tomorrow, then.

Thus far, i have listened to the other entries, and something tells me it'll be a hard time to get that crown.

Still, i'll be the one winning this !

Don't worry, I am not in for a war. I don't care if I win or not.

Remember we still have BrokenDeck and NGADM winning TroisNyxEtienne have yet to submit their entries. It should be challenge and it should be fun.

The only thing to keep this contest fun is hoping we won't have motherfuckers submitting plagiarism contents.

last but not least, GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE ELSE!!!!!!

One thing we won't have to worry about in this contest is thievery. That is one of the main things I'm looking out for in this contest, and it's hard to slip something past me when I'm actually on the lookout for thieves.

A word of caution to whom it may concern: if thou dost decide to submit a track that you downloaded from someone else, then know that not only will you be dealing with moderators on this site, but also the original author of the song you stole will be notified as well.

I can put up with most of the crap I read on Newgrounds, but lying or stealing is something I rarely tolerate :)

Actually it's an atonal mess

Speaking of I uploaded the minimal part of my Rhapsody (which I split up) but I have a chase scene in the works (said atonal mess). Do you prefer melancholy or suspense, Bosa?
