My entry is almost done but I'm kind of stuck. I need to get better at structure.

I feel you.
Needed three or four attempts to arrange my entry, and it ended up being a pretty short piece.

Coming up with a good structure from thin air is one of the hardest things about these challenges since there's not much setting, story or gameplay for orientation.
Maybe check out a few references to get a better grasp of how you want to tackle your track and to kinda make up your own world where your music is supposed to be playing. Keep at it!

Cheers,
Moritz

Hey ! Here's my entry : A tragedy occured

I choose to work on the "dark side of love", about those huge emotions created by love and their destruction when a love tragedy occurs... hence the title of the tune. :-)

It was also an opporunity for me to try something orchestral, since I don't have much experiment with this type of music.

Those contests are definitly a great idea ! I'm already waiting for the next one !

Mono: I really like the the feel of your track, it makes me happy and surely puts me in a happy carnival-like place, two people hand in hand walking around the park. Great job.

Somnia: I'm in a village, at night, with moonlight lighting up the streets wandering through various alleys, I like the mysterious feel it gives and can certainly put myself in a 'loving' feel.

Lihwem: Well thought out and a different approach to what I think many of us had in mind for the 'love' theme, but I like how you've thought outside the box! The change at 1:18 really brings the darkness through.


Here's my entry:
Cosmic Embrace

Imagine, if you will, a setting of deep space with planets and galaxies bright and bold all around you. You have finally found your long lost lover after countless days of searching.

So yeah, this track was composed with the vision of an ending to a game where the protagonist has finally saved his long lost lover, the setting is deep space and the video game style I had in mind was a 2D/overhead view adventure.

Love this!

Is there a TIGS soundcloud group or should we make one?

Mono, I've never thought to look, but after searching I quickly came across this: https://soundcloud.com/groups/tigsource-soundcloud-group

it doesn't look super active but it's definitely not dead.

Thanks, man. Your piece, in addition to being a wonderful work, makes me think of Ayreon and FTL soundtrack both at the same time. You like them?

P.S. Seems like my entry has managed to acquire about a thousand listens, and the last time I got anything close to that was when I was featured on the SoundCloud blog. So should I be worried? I mean, I'm proud of my work, but it's a little unexpected to get a thousand listens for this tbh.

Sometimes you catch love like it's a virus, it threatens to shut you down, and all you can do is hope you don't crash.


(Or maybe it was just a BIT of a CRUSH! Bwahhahahhaaa! I slay me!)


....But, seriously.

This song breaks my heart.

Wow, so many varied styles for the entries. Love it!

Here's another style to add to the list. Sometimes, nothing displays the emotion of love like some good ol' fashion rock.
