honorary mentions:
Solus - Now you placed, STFU >:(!

It is important to note that many of these songs have won because of their basic ability to invoke emotions. There were many songs of great complexity that held difficult harmonies but these songs were more about the expression them about the emotion. Proving that it is not how much you know, but how well you know it.

At least in this particular case.

I apologize for the delayed postings, I was aiming to get this up by the morning, but due to a much higher judge results turn out, all of which conflicted with one another, it was difficult to gauge what each judge's criteria were for their selections. For this reason I had to listen through each nomination twice *After going through the list myself*, and believe I have found the balance which each judge held in common.

With that, winners please pm TomFulp with your winnings, good contest people, I will be hopefully launching the next MAC late August, it will not be a voted one.

"It will not be a voted one" - do you mean the results/judging, or the topic? I'm not MAC savvy, but I'll probably try to enter the next one.

And congratulations everyone.

Woah, I placed! :O

That is...Amazing. I don't think 8th place wins any prizes, but I'm happy to have placed regardless. Maybe next time. Thanks to those judges who voted me!

I hope that the next MAC involved something epic sounding. :)

I'm just gonna go ahead and let you know that you guys truly deserve a congratulations. I've listened to most of the submissions, and there are quite a few that are truly inspiring to the first hear. To possess the talent of music is a rare gift and I am very happy that you all contributed to the MAC.

Don't give up on creating the most beautiful of art! When you guys release music to the world, you give it chance to glimpse at true and wondrous beauty in which you are all capable of producing. Keep practicing, keep studying, and keep submitting!


Those that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength

And congratulations everyone.

Theme will not be voted, as a Newgrounds Event is taking place soon.

Also since the criteria for the judges were top 10 and not scored in any way, and since there was a lot of conflict, the scores would not reflect anything substantial.

ALSO for the next MAC, we will begin enforcing a strict policy of making a song for the MAC. We will no longer accept old songs!

Depending on a poll we may reduce the number of submissions to 1, to make sure your one shot is your best shot.

Thank god.


A heavy bassline is my kind of silence.

Enjoy progressive house? Then listen to my song.
