    Yin & Yang
    The music piece must in some way create diametrically opposed (as-different-as-possible) soundscapes, either through dynamics, or through thematic difference, or some other creative ways one can think of. For example, one part of the song can be decidedly sad sounding, while the other one is decidedly happy sounding, or you can switch them up inside the verses all the time through modulations, or you can create a calm and beautiful atmosphere just to add some face melting synths or metal afterwards, completely throwing expected dynamics off.

    Sounds like a real orchestra playing :O

    Also that opening was so cheesy it reminded me of Wonderful 101

    Please do an Orchestral score for this!

    My vote goes to GhostOfPast. Very aggressive sounding in the chorus yet I think the chorus should be repeated just once because I keep losing my attention as it gets there. The first chorus has the anticipation yet the second chorus doesn't have and it sounds just like the first chorus (so it's like, it's super engaging only once but won't even engage anymore if it's repeated). The ending is good, though, not much going on here and there, for the theme, I suppose.

    The rhythm guitar in the chorus sounds kind of cramped like being overlapped by the other sounds, or maybe it's intended.

    Apart from my own song, I always play this song whenever I get the chance because it sounds very good.

    I vote for the song that I repeat the most in my audio player (except mine), and Ring of Fire is my choice.

    Not sure it's a good idea to have voting open just for one week. I understand it's music and not maps but still, to listen, if not properly, at least, to all entries some time is required and people usually stumble upon these polls which gives voting even less chance.

    Also, is somebody doing the music video compilation?

    Huh? That one was your entry? I thought it's labeled WIP...

    If it is your entry, though, that means it's not in there because you haven't posted two WIPs yet, but I don't know which one is your entry nor which one is your WIP.

    ''Submissions may not be started / made before the official launch of the contest'' as says in the Rules and Conditions here: Music Contest #13 - Yin & Yang

    @Lord_Marrowgrath From your instagram post,it seems you made your track before the contest started as says in the date of your post Sercan Ozyurt on Instagram: “Adımını attığım bu ambiance tarzında ki parçaların ikinci prototipi. Daha çok amatörce daha da geliştirmek için uğraşıyorum. Melodinin…” ,maybe im wrong though,i've never used instagram so i might be mistaken.

    So your entry would have been removed anyway.

    "The Skies Beyond" very pro made, deserves 1st place in my opinion, track like from Hollywood movie
    very like "light and dark" (but from 1:30 where drums starts) ;)
    "The guys next door" change of pace and chillout-like atmosphere captivated me
    "Virtual Fantasy" great theme (bass in the second part a little too screeching) but otherwise great composition, perfectly fits the contest theme.
    Wish I can vote for more then two ;)
    Congrats all!
