A friend of mine informed me of this competition a few days after it started, so I thought I'd give it a shot.
I can't draw due to a rare condition that causes all pencils, pens, styluses and mice (when used in paint programs) to melt when I hold them (watching wood melt is one of the stranger experiences of life; I highly recommend it).
So I figured I'd try some music.
A few notes about the following tracks:
I didn't name them as I didn't want to affect anyone's interpretation of them, and for the same reason I've made no suggestions for them either. Secondly, most of the tracks are split into sections for ease of looping. I've included a 'full version' of each track, and then a looped section with a separate intro section that can be played once before the loop to lead in, if you want. Track two is the only track that doesn't truely loop. Track seven loops in its 'full' form. I did the loop cuts by ear in Soundforge, and consequently they're not quite perfect sometimes, but good enough unless you're really listening hard to them.
So without further ado, the links are below:
One - Lydian-feel thing which gets dancy, although don't actually try dancing, that time signature will break you.One - Full VersionOne - Intro Before LoopsOne - Main LoopOne - Simple Loop
Two - Film scory stringy thing.Two - Full Version (Not Loopable)
Three - Ethnic instruments with a harmonically deceptive intro.Three - Full VersionThree - Intro Before Main LoopThree - Main Loop
Four - Um, no idea what I was thinking, to be honest.Four - Full VersionFour - Intro Before Main LoopFour - Main Loop
Five - Pretty simple. Was actually trying something particular; failed.Five - Full VersionFive - Intro Before Main LoopFive - Main Loop
Six - Film scory again, slightly avant garde, horns this time.Six - Full VersionSix - Intro Before Main LoopSix - Main Loop
Seven - Simple loop, will probably piss you off after about 10 seconds. Actually that probably goes for all of these.Seven - Full Version (Loopable)
Eight - Slightly majestic sounding thingy. Was a bitch to loop.Eight - Full VersionEight - Intro Before Main LoopEight - Main Loop
