The full title for this song is "Expanse (The Everness Of Space and that is what the T.E.O.S. stands for) *READ ON*

first of all i need to say that this is a CUT DOWN VERSION, the original was too long and above 8mb, so i had to cut out a couple of little sections. i tried not to detract from the song too much and keep the cuts out of the way. the 3 cutouts are: 1) When i bring the main melody back a second time. 2) After the piano/synth climax, 3) After the end of the song (like i had a bit after the end of the version ur hearing now that i had to cut out. Now that that's out of the way let's read on :D

wow... what to say about this one? I had a melody in my head for quite some time but i didn't know what to do with it, how to expand on it, what to add to the song, where the melody would fit in (baseline, sub-melody, or main melody) until one saturday morning it all came to me - and i cooked up this little beauty. I tell u if this doesn't get a good score - and people keep zero bombing me i am giving up all hope in the newgrounds community. *READ ON*

i spent a SHITLOAD of time on this. it took 3 hours to make in fl, then half an hour to master and add effects, then i rendered out the mp3 and closed the demo version and waved goodbye to the song. I then spent a further 2 hours tweaking the sequencing and trying to add a couple of extra things over the top of it that i thought would sound good, then i spent another one hour adding a pad underneath the song (u can hardly hear it, but it gives a momentary pause from an otherwise boring drumloop at the start of the song) i still love the drumloop i made though, i made it all in DrumSynthLive, so i cant be zero-bo0mbed for using premade loops cause i made this myself. and then add another half hour fo rendering and the like, and this song took roughly 7 hours to make.

This has been my frist FULL SCALE trance production, and i am extremely happy with the outcome. If you agree please vote 10/10 and 5/5 or at least 4 because i DESPERATELY want this song to get into top 5 so i might be able to be discovered as an artist because i AM getting better and i will continue to get better if i just have a bit of support going my way - to those of you who have supported me, my deepest thanks go out to you.

This is for all of u newgrounds, PLEASE enjoy and pelase give CONSTRUCTIVE criticism, i want to get better (please don't mention anything about pads though - i already know :P)

Don't tell people what to vote.

The song isn't all that bad, it's got length, which is what some songs around here JUST don't have.

Seriously dude, telling people what to vote shows desperation, you're asking people to tell you you're good. Sure, people could TELL you you're good but it won't make you any better as a musician.

DJ-Zoysa responds:

its not about ppl telling me im good, its more about getting my name out there as an artist.

i know telling ppl how to vote is not the right way to go about it but i really want to get my name out there as a good artist..... and its hard when u have a voting of 4.5/5 just one hour before the top5 is announced and then a rush of 6 or 7 zero bomb votes knocks me out in the span of on ehour to 3.6/5

ps: this is a shortened version :P the actual one goes for 1:10 longer

That's what I'm talking about.

I can tell you put alot more creative effort into this. I still have a long way to go in my own musical progress, but I still know what sounds good. This sounds awsome. It's your best yet. Keep it up. By the way, if you quit mentioning "Zero Bombing" altogether you'll be less likely to have it happen. Some people are just assholes who do it because you keep talking about it. I like this one. Good Show!

DJ-Zoysa responds:

thanks you, thank you, thanks you, thank you, thank you!!!

i remember a while back u were telling me on ways to improve my music then i'd have ur 15 votes, and i took everything u said on board and made it my goal to get that 15, and now i have it and im ECSTATIC ;D

and yes ur right about the whole zero-bombing thing.... i should stop mentioning it altogether xD i just want ONE song to make it top top 5 and i REALLY think this is the one, i certainly hope so.

its great to know ppl can tell i put a lotta work in, and man id just like to say thanks for EVERYTHING uve done for me over the past coupla weeks, uve really made me want to keep making music when i was at a point where i just couldnt take any more negativity. thanks so much

-DJ Zoysa ;DD


Nice!FL Studio!

DJ-Zoysa responds:

thanks ;DD


this is really cool! and did u made this in demo? really cool.. well the only thing there could be changed is maybe a submelody .. well that wouldn't change my score!

4/5 melody
5/5 effort
5/5 creativity
5/5 quality

so really good job man!

i've sended u a pm - plz read it ;)



DJ-Zoysa responds:


i clicked on the link and voted 5, its a great piece of work that deserves to be in the top 5 ;D

i REALLY appreciate ur scores, its so nice to have someone look at one of my songs in the new submissions section and not zero bomb it, i am GREATLY appreciative for that :D especially seeing as YES i did make it in a demo so that was very stressful lol, and i pout a lotta heart and soul into this (7 hours work) so i really hope this gets in top 5 ;D

good luck with ur top 5 entry, i really hope this one can make it in there ;D also this is a cut down version ill put a link to the full version up soon xD

uve made my day :D
