it's been kinda dead in here lately, so i think it's about time we had another comp in here! since the post-hardcore one had amazing results, i think we should do it again.

now, we are going to need at least 4 judges, and many participants. even if you dont usually write post-hardcore, you can use this opportunity to come out of your shell a little bit.

im sorry to say, if you are a participant, you cannot judge. it has to be one or the other, because we had too many problems last time.

if you are a judge, dont be a fool and take forever to judge. if you signed up to be a judge, you are responsible to judge ASAP

participants, the material you enter has to be written specifically for this comp. you cant enter something you have already written


deadline for signing up will be *deadline has been reached*

deadline for submission will be *deadline has been reached*

* = work has been submitted


Participants:

Thomasoman*
Carl6661*
Rumpy*

Totally out of my comfort zone here as I've no idea what it's supposed to sound like, but what the hell... I'm in.

Edit: If anyone is feeling generous, feel free to PM me with maybe 4 or 5 songs that would define the genre best

I'll participate if we're accepting more. Shucks on writing a new song though, I've got quite the post-hardcore arsenal (for a period of time I became obsessed with emulating the fall of troy, but with a lot of atdr injected interludes).

foodit: what format is this in? GP?

guitar pro would be best. it'd be wise to include the MIDI as well

I may end up switching over to judging if there aren't enough. I'm discovering I'm fairly terrible at writing this kind of music, and I've spent far too much time writing something that sounds (to me) pretty horrible. I'll give it a few more days maybe.

I would not mind judging many members have seen my post hardcore work so if that is enough to vouche me as a proper judge of PHC.
But one thing could I judge and enter just not judge on my own piece? Its ok if not.

ill put you down as a judge. the thing about entering your own piece, is that you have to deduct your opinion as a judge from your score. like, there will only be 3 of the 4 judges scores, so you'll just get a major handicap. its better if you just judge. if you want people to just view your song, you can post it in open t&c. im sure that people will be more interested in PH since there is a comp going on.

sorry.. thanks for being a judge though

Quote by Uber Man
so... how do you want us judging these things? like, are there categories or is it just an overall 1-10 scale??

it'll be like both combined. ill go into more detail later, but there will be several categories. like, there will be one for creativity, sound, etc, so you judge each song by its category, then combine the score and divide by the number of categories there are.

if that makes sense.


ill be making a separate thread for the judges only, so we can see all the scores without having to search through this thread. ill include the details for judging, categories you're judging, and everything else you'll need along with it

ok cool dude. To the contestants, I have heard just about every famous band songs in the PHC genre that you could name and i am looking all over the UG tabs to make sure you can not steal someones work. We want you guys to go crazy and be creative this is a really fun event and it would be pointless to post someone compositions as your own. I'm only saying this because I've seen it happen in previous events.
being original is a big part of this genre. So even if you must go smoke tons of marijuana and be original the way The Mars Volta do it go for it. .

Disregard I have found my mojo. I can't say that my end result will be 100% post hardcore, but it'll definitely be in the ballpark. It's also given me a chance to have some real fun with chords. Although, can anyone think of a good dirty RSE sound that can handle chords clearly?

Seeing as though I'll be out of state without my laptop from about the 23rd through the 10th, I'll have to drop out.

excellent man post-hardcore is about taking hardcore and just pushing it in a new, artistic direction, so as long as you have the roots of it, you should be just fine

Suggestion to those who finish early. If you finish early go back the next day or 2 days after and listen to it to make sure its exactly what you wanted. Be perfectionists .

no problem dude

by the way judges, dont judge until all the participants have entered their songs.
