So, without all the hyperbolic shit, can you explain in normal english what exactly you're looking for?

1) Novelty/Originality

2) Sound Quality/Mastering

3) Emotion/Immersion

4) Instruments/Programs' Quality

5) Writing/Sequencing

reading is hard.

I don't see how I can't not participate in this one. Conquer the planet is basically been #1 priority for years. I'll totally ignore a client or something to make time :3

Step said something interesting in Skype today, and I agree:

I'm sorry Step... I'll back out so you have a chance.

Seriously though... I'm not that good.
I'll also be lucky if I manage to get something done in time.

Exactly. Your 'Remembrance' track isn't exactly a 2 year old hitting a frying pan with a wooden spoon. It contains superb composition and warmth.

The competition is fun, and by the looking at the names (and doing a little peek into some of your audio sections) I'm very excited to see what is produced by everyone. I love seeing entries come in and just to sit through them one by one and simply listen, you can really feel and hear the effort people go into.

Heres hoping I'll have time for this, as Im at beta crunch in work while moving home.

With the fiasco of awesome musicians (I just take a look at your music) joining in, my chance of even slip into lowest winning place is lesser than 10%. What are the odds? ;(

I don't mean it like that! lol, I meant I don't know everyone here so I'll listen to some of your stuff. I wasn't implying "psh, i only need to sniff at you to know how good you are."

Don't think of it as odds, think of it as an experience. We're not all here to beat you - some of us are here to take part with you.

Not forgetting yourself.
I consider myself the least among all the participants around here, I will say this much. But yes, there are quite a lot of formidable competitors this time round, it's not even funny.

Damnit Buoy. I'm working, I'm working. Don't misrepresent my attempts at humour as quivering in fear.

I've got the primary thematic material (the first of many themes) down; this is definitely shaping up to be my best composition yet, which, after all, is the point of the contest :3 There's a heavy focus on low brass - this is going to be a stretch for me, since I usually work with strings and piano (and, infrequently, woodwinds).

Screw it ;[. I decide to enter this compo for the fun but not for winning, probably this might give me a little boost on here, I'm noob after all.
