    Perhaps if a sufficient amount of participants voted for an extension we could actually potentially get more final submissions.

    Heres my next WIP for the Contest. If I don't make a final before the contest ends, just use this as my final please. The reason i ask this, is because I am not sure if I will have the time to work on it more. This time it is in video form from youtube.

    BTW, I attached the file, so if you don't like/can't watch youtube videos theres that option as well.

    Mr.Pockets, you have quite an ambience going on there but unfortunately, there is no melody driving it.

    Yeah I'm kind of confused too because I really want to participate but finals are looming :( Unless an extension is issued (Wherewolftherewolf, mr.pocket, Krl70, Axegrinder90, and I could benefit from this), the contest won't have a lot of participants with finished entries, and the contest won't be as exciting.

    Watchman,
    Could you please update the first post everytime someone posts his final entry like Devine just did. I'm very busy at the moment and to save some time it would be great if you could keep an eye of that for me.
    This so I can immediatelly start working on my reviews the 28th.

    Oh and Wolfman.
    At the moment my critism would be that it needs some change. There's one pattern that's looped through nearly the entire song.
    Try to come with a dropdown or something or work towards a certain goal in your song. Play with your volume a bit. Like most songs have they start at lets say 60% volume, somewere they reach the point where its all about at lets say 100% volume, and then drop back to 60% again. Play around with that, currently its a like a very quite ocean but I'd prefer an ocean with waves if you know what I mean;-)
    Most people forget that silence is music aswel. If you extend the big fat 'goal' of your song long enough the effect will only be bigger if you wait with it. A joke is also way more fun if you extend the clue as long as possible. If you say it too fast withoud building up tention the joke effect is gone... Same thing with songs.

    MrPockets0000:
    Hmm I don't really know how I would judge that. In my opinion it's an ambient effect for a game.. not (background)music.
    I can't imagine anyone listening to that unless he plays a game. So I suppose your goal is to make something to be played on the background of a game or wc3map. In that case I really think it's more an ambient effect then background music. But it's quite freaky. So why don't you come up with some things that are being done in horror movies aswel or something. Like notes that are very close to eachother high in a piano, or a childish song.. With that background a childish song would scare the shit out of me to be honest.
    I'd would just like to hear some more 'music' or instruments in it really. But for ambient sounds it's quite cool!

    @wolfman
    I like the beginning a lot (until 0:12/13), it creates tension and let's you expect something big... but I got disappointed a little.
    Still I like the melody and it does sound kind of schizophrenic ;-)

    I believe if it is YOUR piece then it's fine to sample it. Most of the piece, however, should be fresh material.

    Btw, can someone start a poll to gauge the number of participants requiring an extension?
