Tune Contest #67 - Spring

My choice for the next theme will be Spring
I don't know how it is where rest of you live, but the first signs of spring are starting to appear over here. Therefore I figured out that this would be pretty appropriate. Try to write something that reminds you of spring or spring makes you feel.

Requirements:
Minimum Length: 1 minute
Instrumentation: Whatever you desire

Due date: April 5th. (Extension if needed of course)

Hmm weather is starting to take a turn for the better here as well, may jump in on this competition.

Huh?

A due date of April 5th AND an extension "if needed?" That's a long time from now, considering the contests are generally 2-3 weeks. One has to do some pretty serious procrastination to not have something finished by the 5th of April hahaha.

Oh just watch me leave it to last minute :)

Jokes aside kind of makes sense given how the new album just started up, but it does seem a bit lengthy for a tunes contest.

I have faith in your ability to do it before the last minute :P

Ah, I forgot about that. But the deadline for the next album is June, so there's more than plenty of enough time to get that done.

i dont see what the cover

i dont see what the cover thing should interfere with this. especially with the length of time people have to do a cover. not to mention tons of people shit those things out so fast. anyway, i think these are more interesting. maybe it is just me - and while covers can be fun - encouraging people to create and write their own music is always a better goal.

A long, long time ago
I can still remember how that music used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people lightly blow air out of their nostrils
And maybe they'd be happy for a while

But April made me shiver
With every page request I'd deliver
Slow loading frontpage
I couldn't take one more click

I can't remember if I cried
When I read about how the snailbot died
But something touched me deep inside
The day the music died
...
Is it spring yet?

Basisti94

Oh yeah, here's a piece from me too. Clear I actually finished this one little bit before this tune contest but I had spring in my mind while I worked on it but I thought that I might just as well post it here now.

Anyway, it's still technically spring for 5 and a half hours where I live so, the results!

soundsandstuff - This is definitely funky. I really like the bass line!

Avaruussaha - Here's another very catchy track. For some reason I thought it would be really fitting background music for some light-hearted scene in a visual novel.

Lloyde_Sorrow - This was really relaxing, and I really liked the sound of rain and that quiet percussion sound

tiger child - I'm getting huge Joe Hisaishi vibes from this one! I especially like how dynamic it is.

hashel - This fits the theme really well, with birds chirping and everything!

hslesperance - I'm not entirely sure why but your pieces always remind me of music from the PS1 era and give me this nice slight nostalgic feeling.

Aaand the winner is tiger child! I really liked how your entry developed throughout the song and it fitted the theme really well too!

Yeaaaaaaaaah congratulations

Tiger taking home the win! Double congratulations to you! As Basisti pointed out, it's very dynamic.

Thanks, Hashel (almost typed Haschel for a moment xD Good ol' Legend of Dragoon). Yours had a very nice atmosphere to it as well. Definitely loved the water and the addition of the birds! Why didn't I think of adding birds haha. A job well done, good sir :)

oh no! well. thank you everyone. the track was the last hurrah of my mpk-mini. multiple keys broken off now making it nearly impossible to use. i'll have a new theme up in the next few days so we can get this ship on the sea.

again, thanks. i thought everyone turned in nice work this time around. my favorite track was from hslesperance.

i'll try not to be too weird with my topic. or maybe i will be.
