Another year, another opportunity to get a better couple of tracks injected with fresh ideas!
Will be lurking the Art Portal, I already have ideas spinning around in my head since I saw you announce it on Facebook.

I'm not sure yet if I'll be entering, but I have a question. Is there a limit to how long your track can be?

Yep, any old art piece as long as it's T or under and follows the guidelines. Lots of amazing artwork on here. I'm glad they have filters to narrow things better.

Alright, that's very reasonable. I'll just attempt to make something decent and if it works out I'll submit it.

Because of my lack of music knowledge, I probably have a 0% chance of winning, but I'll try to enter anyway for the experience.

I think that's the best reason to enter a contest, for the experience. I find contests more interesting when they have more of a theme behind them, interesting concepts. Try your best! :)

Yeah! I was looking forward to this. Should we call dibs on an art piece? That's what I did last year, but still other people made songs about the same piece, so it didn't really work. Anyway, I don't really know yet what art I want to go for.

I thought about it and no. Whatever inspires people inspires them, no dibs on anything :)

The music in that video sounds oddly familiar... ^^ Great introduction, though!

Since, I don't want to be a wiener, I think I'll probably give this another go :)

If you read the rules in the submission thread, it runs 5 weeks, it starts March 9th. Also to update everyone, I'm happy to say, HalcyonicFalconX has returned as a judge. I'm wondering if I should add a 5th judge, and I just might in the future, we'll see.

You are better at music. Therefore, you win by default!

Oh, I thought I was getting a date! Plus, it's all subjective. You're much more versatile imo.
