    Requirements:
  • Minimum Length: ~1 minute
  • Maximum Length: INFINITE!
  • Instrumentation: Whatever you see fit!

  1. Speedy Gonzales! (Did I spell that correctly? xD)
  2. Ooops! Silly me forgetting to put the minimum length of time XD Sorry about that! I'll add it to the OP right away!

Maybe I should have waited a day or so to give everyone a break from the previous contest... hmmm. We'll all have to keep that in mind for future contests, I suppose. ^_^

Gio: I thought about putting a definition in the OP when I created it but figured people would know what it meant. I suppose I should not assume such things. Sorries!

Alright, here is my entry. It's quite a simple one and the rhythm is a mess (I'm quite bad at recording piano apparently) but it catches the mood I was aiming for pretty well in my opinion.
About the title, the western shore is quite common metaphor for heaven or afterlife. And by common I mean that I've seen it used that way in Lord of the Rings and Tales of Earthsea :P

Alright, it is time! My apologies for the delay!
Now, I know that everyone always says that judging these contests and choosing someone for 1st place is hard, but it's true. It's no easy task for various reasons. But it must be done and so it shall! So, without further ado HERE WE GO!

Basisti94: I enjoyed your piece quite a bit. You did the best you could in recording it and I think it turned out pretty well. :) Very relaxing piece, it is. Great work! :-)
Brody: I enjoyed your piece as well, Brody. It's quite nice. Some of the things are louder than others and bury them a bit, but that's too much of a problem, you still did a great job. :)
soundsandstuff: Ah, such a lovely piece we have here! You did a great job. :-)
BigHeadClan: Mr. Big Head! We come to you at last! I enjoyed your piece as well! It is quite lovely. Very relaxing. You did a great job! :-)

And the second hard part: choosing the winner! I do not wish to anger or upset anyone, but if such a thing happens then it happens! It is inevitable. You all did a great job, so keep that in mind despite whether you win 1st place or not! It would be easier to have three judges and spread the decision across them instead of just leaving it to one person, I think haha. But enough! The winner of Tune Contest # 43 is: BigHeadClan!

Congratulations to you all!

Oh Wow I was not expecting that at all! I thought Basisti94 had that in the bag, then again I am a sucker for anything with Piano and Waves in the background...

Well this is normally were I say some nice words about how honored I am to have won, but seeing as I currently lack those words and have re-written this paragraph at least a dozen times I will skip the formalities.

I should have a suitable theme picked out by the end of next week and look forward to seeing everyone's work in the next contest!
