Well after quite awhile of working on it, I finally got it done!
I added drums and bass, and mixed the fuck out of everything so it sounds really awesome.

Is the deadline 6th of April, if so I can make it if I put my head to it, I would like to represent Kurdistan although we don't officially own a land, there are lots of us dispersed around Iran, Turkey, Syria etc. Gonna do like an ethnic kinda song because I've never attempted something like that before so will sound like the kinda music you will find in the middle east if thats cool?


Want a review lemme know! Collab, remix, tips, whatever, just get in touch.

Oh crap, sorry, I can't accept you, if you read the rules you'll notice that the song you're wishing to submit is too short.

I think he meant that it's not quite done, but that's part of the song, so I think that you should be able to accept him.

Response to Represent a Country 2 [Contest] 2009-03-30 17:11:08


yea Neon. he just posted half to show that he could get done by the dealine/

and man, i've been out of it all week, so i misread the dates.

That must be awful, I thought I had Cancer at one point and I was terrified! D:
I hope your son's okay.

Response to Represent a Country 2 [Contest] 2009-03-30 17:16:22


awww thanks Neon! its probably all fine but they noticed that light is not reflecting properly off the backs of his eyes, he has a "simian crease" which is 1 line across the inside of the palm instead of 2, and his isn't pointing at things or waving, not communicating how they think he should be yet. so they just want to run some tests. he has an appt. with a pediatric eye specialist on the 14th.

I hope your son will be alright Kerrie. :( It's hard to have a family member sick.
Although, from what you described, it's probably not cancer. At most just a genetic anomaly somewhere, and I doubt it's going to be a debilitating one. :) But I'm not quite a doctor... so... >_>;

Response to Represent a Country 2 [Contest] 2009-03-30 19:14:15


aww thanks! ^_^
the thing with the eyes....often times it is tumors blocking the reflection of light...or glaucoma...i just hope its nothing like that but the fact that it COULD mean that is scary for me. will know more on the 14th!! :D

I know alot about cancer and genetic disorders aswell. It can greatly affect your creativity and just make it harder to vent your emotions, in that way, so try and give a few hours a day to your creative hobby / profession so you just stimulate yourself. gotta be strong for ze tiny titan, right?

ill be thinking about you and your son now and mebbeh make some small songie for you to relieve some anxiety if i can manage to make anything calm at all right now. and even if its just the sniffles, i will beat the bad germs, viruses or cells to death with DEATHMETAL!

nah, joking, kind of insensitive. hope it turns out allright, dude. and the best of luck in the contest aswell, i hope i get last place just to totally contrast the last contest in which i beat a total of 7 other folks that managed to meet the deadline. good contributions, i was just not aware of the fact that people secretly ALL love starcraft and koreans...

well, i did THREE songs from videogames in a medley, but interpreted them abstractly for the storylines moods in a medley with a story behind them and created like a dreamteam battle situation going on (which im very anxious to continue the story on since the next part involves Link, Samus and Solid Snake beating up Magus and obviously getting dimensionwarped into another world... SEGA's world... aaaand after that its gonna be the PC horror worlds and so forth but its all subject to change. just make it up as i go along...)

No no, COVER versions arent alowed:P This is a remix. Besides that the only thing it has in common with the original is the melodies so it's not like it'd be hard to detariman weather or not this is a cover:P

Well a remix is a cover surely? Just arranged different, either way how does donkey kong represent china??

As far as im concerned, a cover is when one band play another bands track. A remix on the other hand, is when one artist/band remake another artists song so it becomes a whole new song.
As i personally tend to make electronic music, i'd be rather pointless to make a cover version of another electronic track since the result would be identical to the original song. As souch you should take a listen to the 2 songs bellow...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iS6jMnYUr x4
This is the original.

This is my version.

As you can see the only thing that the 2 songs have in common is the melodies. Besides that. The rules says nothing about that the song has to do with the country it represents...

Hovever... I just noticed a nother and more serious problem... The deadline were march the 28th... Which means I'm 3 days too late:(
Guess I wont participate in this one afterall, although i was in a rush to finish it:(

Response to Represent a Country 2 [Contest] 2009-04-02 10:53:58


I'm afraid I cant accept this, the song has to be create by you, a remix is not allowed to be submitted, an interpretation of a franchise would be fine, but I'd prefe rit if you didn't name the franchise, and to be quiet honest I've had enough of Donkey Kong remixes (as well as Tetris and Sonic).
Basically you're supporting a franchise which was made in Japan... and you're not supporting Japan. So I'm afraid it's a no for me.

What the hell? I'm affraid i'll have to go against that argument...
First of all: What the hell... The song IS created by me. I have NO idea why a interpretation of a song would be more acceptable then a remix of a song... Do you even know what a remix is in terms of the electronic genre? If so you should clearly have mentioned it that remixes arent allowed in the rules. That would've spared a me a lot of work, thats for sure...
Secondly: You're quite honestly a crappy judge if you don't accept a track because you have "had enough of donkeykong remixes". That'd be the same as if i said "well, i don't like pop, so i'm affraid i cant let you participate with that song since it's in a genre i dont like".
Thirdly: Have you even listened to the 2 songs i listed? Probably not, cuz IF you had, you'd know that they're NOTHING like each other. I have NO idea how the hell you could say that a remix like that isnt acceptable, but a interpretation would've been "Just fine".
Fourthly: The contest is named REPRESENT a country... Not SUPPORT a country. Lets say this was a fighting tournament. Lets also say that im using karate. I'd still be able to represent my country even though the fighting style isn't danish. You know why? Because what matters is that I'M from Denmark.
Fifthly: Lets say the song DID have to "support" the country the partisipant is from. How does ANY of the folowing examples "support" the artists countris?

The songs listed above have NOTHING to do with the country they're from (as far as im concerned) but that doesnt mean they shouldnt be accepted in the contest.

I woul've been able to understand if you'd just said that i was 2 days too slow, but instead you came up with some crappy argument that made no sense...
If this is the way you judge weather or not the contest entries are accepted or not i'll be sure to get the hell out of this stupid competition.

To the people who made the songs I used as examples: Please do forgive me if you think i don't like the them. That is not the case. I simply needed some examples to support my arguments. I do not think your songs suck and nor do i think they shouldn't be alowed in the competition.
