  1. I'm afraid I only saw this a few days ago. I've started on an idea, but I'm not positive I'll have it finished in time.
  2. Was stuck for the longest time, but it's finally coming together. I'll have something to submit tomorrow night, even if it's not quite finished.
  3. This'll be a good way to break in my brand new computer.
  4. I'm afraid I haven't had time the past few weeks to do anything, but even if I had, I just don't understand this prompt at all.
  5. *looks at theme description* Er, how did "stomach fortitude" turn into "digestinal fortitude"? I mean, as portmanteaus go, that one's pretty slick, I'm just wondering... EDIT: Actually, now that I look at it, several things have changed from my original prompt. Is there a reason for that?
  6. As per my post, I sent Nick a selection of themes, and he's made his decision, and I've passed it on to Abadoss. Should be fun!
  7. Thanks, that's very gracious of you! I actually have a few ideas, so how about if I send them to you, and you choose one?
  8. Congratulations, Nicholas Singer, and thanks everybody for your feedback! Can't wait until next round.
  9. Holy crap, these are all awesome! Voting is going to be hard this round! Well, I mean, I'm not including my own there because I can't vote on it anyway, but I sorta thought mine was good, too.
  10. That's probably more the case, now that I think about it. If I hadn't done mine in the first week of the competition, there's no way I'd have had time with the start of the new semester. Even so, it took me some thinking around the theme before I came up with a good way to approach it. I really did appreciate the challenge, and it led me to do some new things that I'm rather proud of! Looking forward to hearing both of your tracks!
  11. At first I read that as "Pah-ool-ee-ong" and was wondering if that was Vietnamese... But, yes, please do enter! This competition is wicked fun! If we extended the deadline to this Saturday, would that allow jabond23 and Nicholas Singer to enter? Or should we take longer? I don't want to rush anyone, but I also think we shouldn't take too long before serving up another theme, if this one didn't resonate with a lot of people. And, sorry, Nicholas, it worked for me! Sometimes it's hard to predict how well a theme will do, though I've noticed that most of the themes that falter are either too specific or too broad. This one might have leaned toward too specific. But once again, it's a crapshoot. I seem to remember seeing people posting their interest on other boards, and then they just didn't turn up.
  12. If you want to extend it, that's fine with me. If you want to start a new round with a new theme, that's also fine. Or jabond23 and I can square off in a steel cage deathmatch. I'm actually really happy with the piece I made either way, so the compo has served its purpose for me.
  13. Some of your sample themes are brilliant. I totally want to see a CMC with the theme "Zombie Horde"!
  14. Nuts, I knew I wouldn't have time to enter this round, but I did mean to vote... well done everyone, this was a fun batch of music to listen to!
  15. Wow, thanks to everyone who voted for me, and also to everyone who contributed to an excellent field of entries! This was a brilliant theme, and I hope my upcoming theme will be as inspiring. (Which, by the way, I have just submitted to Abadoss. I hope you're feeling better - food poisoning is no fun.) Nario, I'm glad you appreciated my feedback. I think that's one of the best things about this competition overall; we're all trying to challenge and improve ourselves, and it's always great to get both encouragement and constructive criticism from fellow musicians. Everybody enter next round, okay?
  16. The URL for my entry seems to be broken... It should be http://www.abadoss.net/CMC/Maquis_-_Monster_Lab_CMC28.mp3 Wow, everything sounds great! this is gonna be tough. But Oliver Brehm's piece seems to have a missing section at 1:16. Any chance of contacting him and getting a repaired version?
  17. This is a great theme. I've been having a lot of fun with it. Trying to figure out how to end mine... Finished and submitted. Looking forward to hearing everybody's!
  18. Because I apparently work best (or only) under pressure, I've just started on an entry. Hoping it'll come to fruition before midnight on Saturday!
  19. Your epic bass drums are playing the Terminator beat. Not that it's a bad thing... Really love how you changed up the rhythm of the main theme to make it more expansive and symphonic. I just got some EWQL samples myself, so this is the sort of thing I need to inspire me.
  20. Finals week killed me last round, and being away from my computer and all my shiny new samples killed me this round. Still, I'll see if I can put something together before the deadline. This theme should be right up my alley.
  21. Suppose I'll add my name to the list of regretful non-participators. I had a feeling I wouldn't make it for this one because the due date was during finals week. I was hoping it'd work out, but meh... Hoping I'll be able to do something for the next round, even though I'm home for Christmas break, so I'm stuck with my laptop and a meager array of samples. I'll get my vote in for this round shortly.
  22. There seems to be a subliminal message coded into your post... I can't quite make it out... On a completely unrelated topic, I sent in my theme on Monday. Don't know what's taking Abadoss so long. The slacker. Oh, and I took advantage of EastWest's two-for-one deal... I am now the proud owner of Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra Gold and Goliath. Not sure if I'll be able to get it all set up and master it enough to use it in the next round, especially as final projects crash down on me. But I remain hopeful.
