Hi all.

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 Version
One - Intro Before Loops
One - Main Loop
One - Simple Loop

Two - Film scory stringy thing.
Two - Full Version (Not Loopable)

Three - Ethnic instruments with a harmonically deceptive intro.
Three - Full Version
Three - Intro Before Main Loop
Three - Main Loop

Four - Um, no idea what I was thinking, to be honest.
Four - Full Version
Four - Intro Before Main Loop
Four - Main Loop

Five - Pretty simple. Was actually trying something particular; failed.
Five - Full Version
Five - Intro Before Main Loop
Five - Main Loop

Six - Film scory again, slightly avant garde, horns this time.
Six - Full Version
Six - Intro Before Main Loop
Six - 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 Version
Eight - Intro Before Main Loop
Eight - Main Loop

All tracks (and loops and intros) in a RAR file
All Tracks (RAR)

Thanks for listening.

These are pretty spectacular! Especially 6, 2 and 4, to pick some favourites semi-randomly. Really epic and lots of variety.

Track 6 really conjures something up.... but I'm not sure what... maybe a Philip Glass score for a film about undead squids infiltrating the CIA in an alternate timeline?

These are really great!

Track 8 sounds like it could be an Art of Noise track.  Grin

Just wanted to say that these tracks are awesome, we used three of them in backworld and it almost felt like they we're made for the game.  Hand Thumbs Up Right
