Neon...Seriously u don't get it. I explained myself thoroughly. I said i wan this contest to be more than what you have made it to be. But you just ignore everything i said and talk about your laziness to changing the rules. If you have no motivation to make this contest give it to a person who actually does. I know you are going to get angry at me but seriously dude instead of saying im whining actually read my post. No one is saying anything because they just gave up when they didnt get the country they wanted. They don't even care about the contest anymore. Everyone else got the country they wanted so they are happy and fine with it. Its ot even about what country i represent i just want this contest more than you have made it to be. If you haven't realized that even though i have said it so many times then please let someone else run it.

If you aren't going to change it then fine. Ill take egypt if anyone hasn't called it yet. And if they have ill take Saudi Arabia, or some type of middle eastern country.

You've complained too much, I'm not having whiney people in this contest.
Especially when I've already told you that the rules aren't changing and you've persisted to whine
I'm afraid I can't accept you. The reason for this is that you've annoyed me to the extent that I wouldn't be able to judge your entry fairly.

Erm... if it's a small snippet yes, but I do want some of your own stuff in their.
Maybe take a riff from a national anthem or a melody and change the lyrics/ add lyrics?

I know, but if different people got the different areas of Africa most of them would be in a similar style, plus Africa is usually thought of as one culture, so It's easier just to Have one entrant allocated Africa.

Actually, africa has a wide spectrum of cultures - not as wide as europe or asia, but still pretty wide - The differences between Egypt, South Africa, The Congo, and Madagascar, for instance, are immense. The cultures that most think of as "Africa" is pretty much Niger, Nigeria, The Gold Cost, etc.

Oh crap, you're right!
They need to teach more about that area in UK schools.
South Africa it is then!

Instead of posting the Contestant list here, I will be updating This newspost.
It makes this thread a bit cleaner.
I also want to take the time to thank the people who have entered and wish you all good luck, I know (not hope) that some great pieces will come out of this contest, I just can't wait to see what we get.

Please go attempt to start a flamewar somewhere else. Nobody, including NeonProject, gives even half a shit. Seriously.

Lash was i talking to you? If you read the whole thread and then made a descision on taking his side then fine. But if you didnt then i don't need your two cents worth. I don't think you have to speak for someone else anyway.

I'm not amazing.
I hope you get enjoyment out of me saying that.
Also, I did hear you, you weren't hearing me, obviously, your childish post is proof of that.

Lashmush, Your entry is epic, if the othe contestants submit pieces to that standard I will have a hard time judging, it's a good thing I have a Panel.
I won't review it until the results of the competition are up, just to keep the tension.
(I shall favourite though!)

Lol...Im childish. If you dont want to be biased then you should get actual judges. Why r u judging. Why don't you get a few guys to judge. If one person does then every vote is biased because you might like one genre than another making you pick your preferred over the other. Get some judges and then your problem and mine will be solved. You don't have to be worried of being biased and i can be in the contest.

I agree.
That's why I said I didn't want him in the competition, so it would stop, I thought he'd leave us alone after that.
LK412 if you want to say anything to me after this, please send it through a PM, the last thing these contestants want to see is a huge arguement.
And I apologise to everyone in this thread for this... it shouldn't have happened.

Well, it would be the melody from the original song essentially. I wouldn't sample the original song at all, it would be done from scratch, just with the same melody/bassline, but thats about it.

So it wouldn't be a pure cover?

thats pretty much a remix. ;D

but hey, I used the main riff from Testament's "Electric Crown", tweaked it a bit and voila. So as long as you throw in your own shit, it should be ok. right?

What about already posted songs on NG, but slighty remixed?
(still in doubt which of the two I want to use to participate...)

It seriously needs to be representitive of the country, if you remix something you will most likely lose points in one of the categories, unless you add something new (which needs to be seriously new).

Response to Represent A Country [Contest] 2009-02-05 07:15:30


Representive for sure and 100% Carf style.
But I am still hesitating if I am going to redo a track and
change some instruments which are ment to give a specific
theme (victorian) to more dutch sounding instruments (for an example, a street organ).

maybe this clarify my question a bit better ;)

My parents moved to Lithuania half a year ago.
I've been there myself, but I can't say there is anything typically Lithuanian in the field of music... Maybe Jazz? Dunno.

That's why I just think of how beautiful it is and how much I want to go there and what kind of emotions it gives off. I already wrote my song. I think I'm going to title it Saviors of Vilnius or Children of the Baltic Sea. Of course the reason I chose the country is because of my heritage.

Arrgh, my brother was still logged in. I hate it when that happens, but no that last post was mine.
