Who said orchestral? I make symphonic [power] metal... O.o
It would not be my best if it wasn't guitar driven.

Don't be like everyone else. Be victorious.

Oh Bosa, you have a way with words... I think I might give this a shot.

Whelp. Got over my creativity block. :3 Off to finish the most difficult part of my piece - the orchestral opera-ish part. Wish I had a larger variety of vocal sounds so it could be more realistic.

1) Have a recognisable melody (or something in the piece which would catch the listener over and over again, say a certain lick).
2) Let the piece scream INDIVIDUALITY. The piece must not be generic in nature, it must be something which YOU would see yourself giving your all to. The recognisable melody helps with the individuality of the piece, but also the general feel of it.

W007! Thank you so much for the advices!


I REALLY hope it doesn't HAVE to be a theme song. Mine is going to be spectacular, but not a theme song...

I could have used to old entry but something keeps telling me it's not right for the requirement(s). '_'

Mine is on it's way, now.
Though i'm afraid my idea is kinda risky, artistically speaking.

... O.o
Ok I shocked myself.
Wrote something short last night and couldn't help but finish most of it today.
I've still got a lot to do, including a few sessions just to mix it (mixing a full orchestra with heavy metal guitars is a lot of work!). Should be done in time if nothing goes wrong!

I think I'm almost done too. Just some more polishing and I could call it a day. :)

I'll just say it's a pretty darn long track. XD

Yes. Yes it is. I'm only about 35-45% done, though the rest of this will probably go faster as I'm more familiar with the techniques used in it.

Bagpipe soundfonts obtained. Now to try to use them properly and take into account the comments other people have made... and then my favorite part. :3

Man, I'd really like to join this contest. It sounds incredibly fun, and hey, it'd be my first contest I joined on Newgrounds. I guess the task of creating a masterpiece that reflects who you are is rather daunting to me. I wouldn't really know just how I'd want to show myself in my music just yet. I'd definitely sign up, but I know I'd come across the dilemma of making something that may show who I am to other people, or making something that doesn't specifically express who I am, but it's something I want a large amount of people to hear.

I guess I might join another contest in the future that seems less...intimidating to me. Either that, or enter a contest like this in the future when I feel more secure as a producer.


INJECT yourself with some of these TOXic tunes! Get it, because tox-...I'm sorry:

I'd probably wanna scrap what I achieved so far and start from scratch again.

I'll repeat the process until I got something worthy.

Just another day in Earthland.

There, mine's in. Subject to minor mix changes over time I guess, but that comes with any song. :)

Some submissions looking pretty good already :)

Finally got the bones to my song laid out right, now it's mostly a matter of filling things in and making the patches sound extra good. Most of the lyrics are written, just need to sing em' out. :D I'm excited about this!

How do you do write so many songs so quickly!

I only have like 30 seconds of weird ambient noises.

Fear not, friends! My composition is coming along well, as I have recently received some bagpipe samples which were much appreciated. The end is in sight.

Sadly, there's another contest I'm working on too, so I don't know how much time I'll have...

Well crud. I somehow missed the point of this contest and didn't realize we are supposed to write our own theme song. Time to start over.

Been cutting a bit on the progress on my song due to doing every media composer's no.1 sin: Overburdening. I'm currently piled under projects and doing no progress on none of them in the process.

In any case, I decided to be productive for once and managed to contact my musicians to do a HUGE recording session, in which I'll be recording the song I'm making for this contest.

The song itself is coming along pretty darn good, although calling it a theme song would be a bit of a stretch... It's gonna be some really REALLY fast hardbop jazz with a large brass line and plenty solos.
