I have a question that I have been wondering about: If our submission goes through and becomes a part of the soundtrack, what will be put as the 'author' of the song? Will it just be the name we entered upon submission or will we have the chance to input our artist surname?

We were planning to just go with whatever got entered in the form but we can change that if winners decide they didn't want that info used after all.

It's probably been asked already, but is there a theme to the composition?
I was thinking about making a soundtrack for ANNET, but I wasn't sure if it was for something else or a generic piece of music.

oggyb Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012
Well the theme is write something that goes with what we already have. So digital, noisy ambient music is more appropriate than guitar-based or orchestral music.

What about apocalyptic-athmospheric soundscapes? Do they count as well?
Reply
:iconoggyb:
oggyb Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012
If it represents a soundscape you might here in or around the GDir complex, then the counts :)

In the post-apocalyptic times or before the tea-on-the-server-bank-incident? 'Cause the piece that I've created was made for the post apocalyptic times.

Oh I see... well the website is kind of set before the tea-on-the-server-bank incident, but the music is still has undertones of the apocalypse, underneath its positive spin.

Hmm nope that doesn't seem to fit though. It's really more of an "Apocalyptic Wasteland"-track. I might share it with you though since I made it for a better reading experience of RA. What do you think?

We don't accept compressed formats in the competition, but if you're just sending music for Happytimes then that's ok :3
Reply
:iconyaensart:
YaensArt Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Compressed format? Well I do have a wav file of it but that has the size of 96,8 MB
I can send you that one if it isn't too big. It really is just "for Happytimes" though :D

Cool! I guess I'll do so. Is there any limitation in length? It's ~14 minutes long.

oggyb Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012
Oh my, that's about double the length of what we've had so far. What's the file size?

Actually, I've had a question bugging me all day.

How long does the piece need to be? Is there any kind of minimum or maximum length needed?
Reply
:iconoggyb:
oggyb Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012
There's only a maximum length of 7 minutes dictated by our 70MB filesize limit. If you've got a srs entry that's longer, we can raise it a little :)

Wow this would be a good motivation to finish my first piece (that I have been working on for forever because I am lazy and not comfortable with the program yet).... It might not be as good as a lot of other entries, nor as heavy with an 'electronic' vibe, but nonetheless I needed a form of motivation to get me started and this might just do it :)

Lol, we tried to make it sound like the GOOD directorate, but you're probably right.

I added a sentence on [link] for you:

"In layman's terms: listen to GDir music, write music for GDir, win GDir swag and a place in the compilation."

Can we only submit one file? :noes:
Reply
:iconoggyb:
oggyb Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2012
Nope, here's a copypaste from the site:

Please use the GOOD Directorate Contest Submission Facility below to upload a binary package to the ANNET System. To enter, you must be above the Age Threshold of Human Competency In Decision-making, which at the current time is 16. You may enter more than one piece.

The deadline for submission is 28th October 2012, 2359 PST.

So you can enter as many times as you like within reason :eager:

Guess you didn't see my other comment, eh? ;)

I also posted a comment on the Facebook page - I'm Charles Platt - about what DAW you're using. Any chance of a collaborative song, maybe? :D
Reply
:iconoggyb:
oggyb Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2012
Oh yes I did see both of your other bits just now. We use a mixture of software including Cubase 6, Audition 3, Tracktion and others but less so.

What are you using?

Aww, dang - no FL Studio then? :P

I only use FL Studio (with a few other external plug-ins).
