The new theme is Flight. Think airships, birds, dragons, fighter jets, superheroes; anything related to flying, except maybe spaceships since we already had outerspace as a theme and kabukibear already did a space shuttle challenger song on contest #2.

Original song for this contest
At least one minute
Any style or instruments
Due December 1

Even I forgot about this.

Even I forgot about this. Anyone working on a song? Should there be a deadline extension? New theme?

I'd say just wait till the new year when everyone is done holiday shopping or when the students are in winter break. It's a cool theme, it's just member activeness is nowhere near where it was a year or two ago.

Hi!
I've made an "Airship" track for a RPG maker game a while ago.
I think it fits the theme pretty well =)

Looks all didn't go well xD Things are still a bit chaotic at the moment. Hopefully I'll be able to have something submitted by the end of month (it should be much sooner, I'm just leaving myself room for unexpected happenings xD).

Alright, here we are. Took a while, but it is here. It's not the best... but it's something! I quite like it... I don't think that it would 100% fit with a video game... but it partially would. Maybe a cutscene/flying sequence or something. *shrug* I think so. Anyway, Flying Through the Air!

1st the characters are in the airship on the ground. Then it takes-off and once in the sky they see a BUNCH of airships majestically flying in the blue sky !
That quality, that work, those harmonies, it's just GREAT!
PS
I'm like harassing everyone but, if you do an arrangement like this of a zelda theme that'd be sooooo cool in the album :p

Hmmm... I'll consider it ;). I've never really arranged anything before, so I have next to no experience with arranging, but I may decide to give it a go. I'll let you know whether or not I decide to do it :). If you don't hear from me in a couple of days, send me a message.

Everyone is silent. The wings flutter clumsily. The wooden goliath finds its wind and the earth relieves it of its gravity. A tension holds everyone as the wind grows greater. Trees panic. Hats are lost forever. Upwards to some unknown. Swallowed by clouds. Teased by a grey silence. Then the sky. A world above the one you've always known. This is what a lightened heart feels like. A new adventure.

A Long Awaited Departure to the Sky

You both did an epic cutscene song.
It's because of you so few people enter, how can we ever dream to beat you uh? kidding ^^
Tiger_Child, all the song is great but that really last part just gave me goosebumps !
EDIT
Do you guys (all of you, who read this) kept your old entries for the previous tune contests ?
Would be cool to make a collection of our songs, nah ?
EDIT 2
Oh well thank to the JIT topic i can find many songs haha ^^

A while back I added an audio link for all the winner songs to the Tune Contest Results page. Some of them were not available. I should message those people to see if they could reupload the files so we can at least have a full collection of those tunes. But we probably wouldn't be able to get every song that's ever been submitted.

And Avaruussaha seems to be the only one that hasn't made a song. I'll PM him to check if he's still writing. If nobody else is working on a song I might put up the results since we're way past the original deadline.

hashel - It that some Final Fantasy bass at the start? Definately has a SNES RPG sound. Fun and upbeat. I went back and added the rule "Original song for this contest" which I forgot to say when making this contest. We don't have many strict guidelines for these contests, but that should be the one rule we enforce. These contests should be pushing you to write new music! I've used previously written songs to share if it matches the theme, but I always tell the host that it doesn't count as an official entry.

Lloyde_Sorrow - Like most of your songs, this one is filled with hope and adventure. What exactly is going on from 0:20 - 0:23? It seems like some sort of conflict, but it happened so fast. The ending is a bit abrupt; it seemed to be leading somewhere new at 0:57.

tiger child - Very similar to your Halloween contest submission. Somehow these songs feel comforting and uneasy simultaneously, a very strange clashing of moods. Once again great storytelling without words (well, other than that short writeup XD).

Lloyde's sounds close to what I was expecting going into this contest, grand and majestic. But tiger's is such a creative take on the theme and well crafted. I have to give this to tiger child.

whoop. lovely. thank you, hslesperance. i really appreciate what you've said.
it's funny when there are only a few entrants that it's less of a "hey i won" and more of an "i beat you." somehow it's more personal seeming. which is awfullllll. that being said, i really enjoyed the other songs very much. i'll have a think about what the inaugural tune contest of 2015 will be. hopefully peoples' "real" lives will have cooled down a bit and they can return to the important work that is gametabs.com tune contests.

This was a pretty good theme. I've just been sidetracked with everyday life and lacking motivation to write a theme driven tune lately.
I always come up with some tight riffs but I've been finding myself less compelled to expand my stuff beyond just little jams.
I might make it a task to push myself into a creative realm for this next theme, good way to bring in the new year :^)

I should enter more to contests, i remember the Winter Contest (he 1st one) was the reason i started composing VGM style music ^^
And my 1st composition remains in my favorties so far !
Mainstream themes like towns theme, characters theme, places theme, battle theme etc can maybe bring some people.

Cheers for the win, tiger!

Around 0:20 - 0:23 is a sort of "loosing control and falling from the sky" thing. Then, the flyer regains control of the flying device (I imagined it as a broomstick... shhh), which is the part when the whole string section is playing along with the the horns, and occasional flute, oboe, and clarinet.

Nice job on this contest, everyone!
