It's great to hear that everyone enjoyed the contest. I'm hoping to see you all return in May 2010.
I thought this contest ran really smoothly and it was nice to hear from new people.

Well done to everyone who entered, some real good work was put in! It was a big surprise for me when I heard the top 10 being read out.

It's probably too late but...

Neon Project: " and is not allowed to sample another artist's work"
Chozz: "The pub sound samples are taken from the authors from freesound.org"
Yeah he used samples, meh i'm not saying that because I'm a bad sport or anything, just cuz lol

Anyway, congratz to all. wow i never thought i would get that close :D

Oh and can you also tell me specificly what the titles "Listener", "Contestant" and Represnation mean, on the judging board.

well thanks for all the organising Neon!

Hmmmm, well all samples that you get from packs and stuff, of bass and synth e.t.c are the product of other peoples work, unless you've gone out and recorded and sampled a sound yourself, or if you have the instrument e.t.c. It's not like i've ripped apart some other artists song and stole the drum sounds or anything.

Well I hope it's legit anyway.

That rule means you can't use music from another person. It also applies to vocals. Chozz only used his sample which was an effect and I'm sure it was also royalty free.
Sticking in a track with a Cascada vocal would not be acceptable, neither would using a clip from an existing track not made by you.

Listeners were people who listened to the show and voted.
Contestant is the votes Contestants gave each other.
Representation is how well your track represented the country.

It is, the top 4 have yet to decide what countries they want. You guys shouldn't start thinking about the countries until you know which ones are off limits.

I have a couple of questions.

1) How do I research up on the country's music style? I mean, yeah, I could choose canada or japan or something, but how exactly do I go about determining what I incorporate into my song? I don't know where exactly to find indonesian or russian songs.
2) If my country doesn't really master in certain genres, like if I wanted to create a dubstep or glitch song or country song, but my country doesn't exactly work with that genre, how does that work? Do I make a song according to the instruments the country uses, or what? Or will I be restricted to certain genres?

Thats what makes the contest so difficult.
For instance, I wrote a Trance song, and when we were scored for country representation I got a 12/12. Keep in mind that this is Lebanon were talking about, they don't exactly have very many raves over there. But however the modern music there is very similar to what we refer to as Trance, but it is much more laid back and easy-going.

It's all about how you interpret the music in your own way.
