Many of you have asked questions about the Art-Inspired Music Contest in the Discussion Thread ( https://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1431736 ) and I answered them, but I thought I'd do a podcast too for the main thread, to remind people to please read the rules and also shine a light on some grey areas to clear up some things.

AIM Submissions Thread: https://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1431735

I feature Ceevro's entry in the last AIM contest last year, "Meditation", lovely piece, it was good for this discussion. Check it out: https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/737190

Sounds like some small mixing problems in the cast -- having trouble paying attention with the reverby low end around 200-300 Hz. It's right around where your voice sits in the track and is only slightly less loud.

Otherwise, accomplishes what you wanted to accomplish.

I would however mention that people should /not/ be asking to be scouted in general, but if an unscouted user wants to participate in the contest, mentioning that in the discussion thread should be fine. The Geometry Dash issues and someone uploading a stolen song as a "joke" in one of the competitions last year makes mods and staff very leery of that kind of stuff.

Good cast!

RealFaction responds:

Crap, sorry about that. Thank you. Well yeah, but that's what I meant. Yeah, that really pissed me off, thats why I wanted to resolve that with the scouting rule.

I appreciate the clarifications. Music fit the piece rather well, and was also well-balanced with the vocals. Sounds like there were a couple of minor editing/mic problems, like the click at 2:22 and the sudden cutoff of "shh-" at :25. That said, I think you certainly accomplished what you meant to with this. A lot of people don't like reading, so it's a good solution to use the AP to deliver the rules and stuff. I'm having a blast judging and reviewing songs so far. :)

RealFaction responds:

Thanks, yeah was having issues with that. Thank you. I figured that much which is why I did this to make things easier for some. Glad you're having fun, thanks man. You're doing a good job.
