Yeah, im going to be doing another in this contest series later this year! I had to narrow them down, take away songs I loved, made me really sad T_T but it was personal taste, atmosphere, mixing, the way it was written, and how it fits the artwork, that was my criteria. There was a lot of amazing songs :)
Definitely! And actually, I think that's why this is kind of important - I didn't see it mentioned on the original submission thread that the music must fit the artwork. This is an "art-inspired" audio contest, not a contest where we make a song solely to fit the piece.
It's kind of like an artist being inspired by another musician's work - the artwork may not appear directly connected to the song, but that's the point. They have derived their inspiration from it, which is different from creating the artwork to specifically fit the song, or the song to the artwork; they don't have to be connected.
I mean, it's really cool when both art and music end up going well together, but this was not clear, I believe. I did see a few reviews on some submissions about not fitting the artwork...and that bothered me because of this... so yeah, some clarification for next time would be great!
On another note, congrats to the winners! Good job, yes yes! ^__^
