    Hey guys, we thought that a new music contest would be nice. To bring back life we need contestants and ideas!



    Suggested themes:

    Futuristic - Music that expresses the futuristic era.

    Steampunk - The music will give the feeling of steampunk.

    Dark - A dark music composition which should make the listener feel helpless, pessimist.

    Action - Boss fight music for example. The era is not important, it can be medieval or futuristic theme.

    Tension/Horror - Making the listeners stay on alert, it should keep them uncomfortable. Make them expect for something.

    Dramatic - This type gradually builds up and exerts certain pitches and low wave lengths.

    That's a great idea. However, not many Hivers are able to create music like the past members of Hive during 2005-2009.

    I opt for Steampunk. It's the hardest theme of all those three.
    From what I remember, there was no fourth contest. I guess this should be the one.

    Write down if you have any ideas i just threw three ideas when creating the post :D

    There was a fourth contest which was cancelled and a moderator said the next one would be named as fifth contest. You can check it at the last page of the fourth contest. The link is in the first post

    I opt for Dark because it sounds the most versatile. I'd also personally participate in this if I found time.

    Dramatic - might spark some pretty flexible results. This type gradually builds up and exerts certain pitches and low wave lengths.

    Well since my last post was deleted for being offtopic.

    I'll just make another repost (Logic much)

    To yet again express my interest in this possible future contest.

    Judges also need to be there or should it be only user vote based?

    Idk much about contest rules, I'll need to talk about it, but judges would be better imo.

    If this happens, I'd definitely participate, no matter the theme. And bewere. (just kidding, there's no way I'm that self-confident)

    Judges can always be found during the proper contest or the poll. Or anywhere in between since it was never a requirement that you cannot start a contest if you haven't found judges before that.

    Just throwing in my cents about it~

    Nice we are getting some attention at least :D When should we proceed to the poll guys? I think we should have some more participants so we'll have less risk of dropping the contest. You know some people may not find time or chance to start or finish their products.

    How are contestants supposed to create the music? Does it matter how you create it? How do you guys usually do? Are there free programms to be able to compete?

    Would be great to know a bit more about this. Sry did not have the time yet to look in to the older contests to answer that for myself.
