24-hour Challange - Begins Now! 2010-01-12 13:54:36


In 24 hours from now (13 JAN, 7 PM NATURAL TIME), everybody who signs in to this contest post their songs. Only 2 rules -
- You have to start it now, no old half finished projects.
- I am the judge, the best submission will be promoted heavily by me, as much as I can (aka in my FaceBook, also nagging all my E-Mail contact list, asking people to publish it - Not too shabby).

I'll also post something tomorrow. You have to sign in until 4PM NATURAL TIME, and any submission that will be posted after 7PM won't be accepted.

Just for fun.

Ready... Steady...

So this is a speed contest to see who can make the best song in 24 hours? No genres specifications? No specific samples to use? Nothing? I don't think anyone would want a song that was produced in that short of a time to be marketed. Can you elaborate a little plz?

You can look it this that way. It's less of a contest, more of a challage - for fun.

No genres specifications? No specific samples to use?

Nope. You only have 24 hours - isn't that limiting enough?

Nothing?

Music.

I don't think anyone would want a song that was produced in that short of a time to be marketed.

I don't know about you mate, but for me NewGrounds isn't about business opportunitys, it's about the community, enjoyment, fun. The time I would put into NewGrounds if it would be more helpful to my musical career would be HUGE.

Can you elaborate a little plz?

The point isn't to put you under stress and make you create a masterpiece, it's more for fun, for lulz, and to give the people ideas for new songs. If you have to finish a song in 24 hours, you might just get a sweet riff out of it. You never know :P

Ok, you're maybe signed up :P Kidding mate. You're in, hope to see you make something!

The hard part is composing something non-boring in 24-hours. So, are you in?

Response to 24-hour Challange - Begins Now! 2010-01-12 14:47:17


It is actually quite possible. My favourite artist Logistics makes half of his tracks like in one night which he said in his interviews

I'll do my best. Not sure how much time I have left now, but it's worth a shot. Thank god the free Kontakt Player and it's factory sets just finished installing! :D

When you say 'natural' time do you mean GMT?

Response to 24-hour Challange - Begins Now! 2010-01-12 17:47:19


I want to join. But does the limit for joining start at 4pm tommorow? And the submission end time occurs in three hours after?


Strychnine and cyanide. A healthy part of this complete breakfast.

Response to 24-hour Challange - Begins Now! 2010-01-12 20:20:24


Finished mine! Didn't even need 24 hours. :D

Though it's all up to the judge how good it is, i personally think it's a sucky attempt at classical.

Here is my 3 hour work. It's pretty bad for dubstep:

But, it's practice. My first dubstep too =D.

Yeah, guess I should have cleared it up. Thanks for bringing it out. BTW, if anyone wants to know what time is it GMT, go to the clock on the bottom corner of your screen, then double click it > Time Zone > London (=Grinch time).

Yep. I just didn't want people to join and make some random stuff in 1 hour, which isn't enough for ANYTHING. We have enough crap in the portal. I figured 3 hours is enough gap.

People who are in AND submitted -
Kaizerwolf
Mystery-Moon-Pie-Aud
haywirehaywire
Yust

People who are in and NEED TO SUBMIT IN 4 HOURS -
eatmeatleet
LogicalDefiance
Usernamemyarse

People who didn't even apply -
Are stupid.

This is my entry. Took 20 hours to make. It's kind of a mix between classical music, Soul music, and ambient. Fruity loops + My shmexy guitar.

I'm going to take a nap. Back in 1 hour to close it, then 3 hours after that to fully close it. The winner and the runner-up will be announced this weekend (I do have work to do, you know!).

Good luck everybody!

Personally, I'd have shown more interest in this had there been some warning, rather than OH SHIT GOGOGOGOGO NOW. If you did it again, planning the date at least a day or two in advance, it'd be easier to plan some time for.

This went more well then I expected, so I'll probably do the 24-hour challenge #2 when I clear the time for it. This was just a one fake-sick day from work kinda deal. When I will do the next one, I'll revise all the problems it had (such as what you are saying now), and also will recruit a team of 3 judges, and have a bit more frame and rules. Thanks for the tip, man. Hop that the next challenge will include you as well.

That actually a pretty cool song name, mate :P Don't know what you're talking about.

I'm not participating, it was just for fun. I think it came out alright, considering I did it in 20 hours.

la-yinn - I have decided to let you in. But it's not Okay, you put me in a difficult moral situation there =\
