    Ok, I think it's about time we had another music contest, so Wherewolf and I decided to create a new thread to select the theme, seeing as the old one died. So, as I am going to host this contest, I invite potential participants to post their ideas for themes here and I shall count them. The one with the most votes, wins.

    For the sake of... time. This is going to have a pretty strict timetable, to prevent unwanted delays, as was the case last time. So, on 02-19-2011, 7:21PM, Global Meridian Time, the voting shall stop. I shall count all the votes up to that time, and the theme with the most votes wins.

    Sorry if I seem to be stuck-up and too official, but I just want to make sure we get somewhere.

    So, currently we have the two predominant themes from the previous thread:

    Dystopia - a world ruled by chaos caused by a corrupt leader. Basically, a Utopia gone wrong.
    and
    Schizophrenia - just what it sounds like. Create a schizophrenic piece of music.

    So, propose your themes and vote for previously proposed themes. I'd like you guys to keep it broad, try to choose a theme that doesn't limit creativity, as was the case in the last two contests. Choose something that would let the participants show their creativity.

    Dystopia as it'd be more coherent.

    Meh, the themes are similar imo. Whichever one wins, I think people will be satisfied.

    Ehm... none? They're both pretty challenging themes to encompass correctly.

    Personally, I find Dystopia more abstract and much more difficult to create a sound for. The simplest approach is create a Utopian sound, then slowly distort it throughout to reveal its Dystopian nature.

    Schizophrenia, in my opinion, has easier sounds to produce because you can work with its symptoms and go from there.

    Either way, these two themes are abstract but leave a lot of room for creativity. It's just difficult drawing the borderline for "horror" music, which is done rather easily.
