NGADM 2017 | INFO | Auditions | Round of 64 | Round of 32 | Second Round Deadline | Pairing


Sup!

So the round of 64 has passed, and along with it so have half the contestants. Well... At least out of the competition; I sure hope they haven't passed away because of the disappointment :V

Even so they all brought something to the table, and fought bravely. As expected, the competition was intense, and there was even some very minor drama here and there in the forum (dare I say, as expected). There were some delays, and a few people had to drop out. In the end we got 61 tracks out of 64 possible, which isn't bad! Especially not considering the quality of them.

A special shoutout to Phonometrologist for scoring the highest points in the round, with a whopping 9.62 average!

No pressure in the coming round, hehhe ;)

Once again, huge thanks to all the organizers and judges, along with all who are donating to the prize pool! And of course, to all who participate. Keep up the strong game, and we'll enjoy seeing how far you can take your music in this ever more challenging deathmatch.

In all likelyhood you didn't come here to read my ongoing ramblling, so I'll give you the results forthright!

Congratulations to all the winners!

And huge props to all who made it this far. Once again, I hope that all of the discourse (be it in the forums, or elsewhere) remains civil. Hopefully, according to plan the judges will pop up with at least a few reviews for every track. Additionally, I'm sure they'd be happy to tell you their reasoning for the scores if you send the personal PM's, respectfully requesting such.

All that said, the contest is yet far from over. I wish all the remaining competitors the best of luck!!!
Get your A game on, and hopefully you'll be able to surpass not only your competitor, but more importantly, yourself.

I for one will very much enjoy seeing both the journey and the outcome of the NGADM 2017!

That's all for now, folks.

NGADM Audition Results & Pairing 2017

NGADM 2017 | INFO | Auditions / Results | First Round Deadline | Pairing


Well, well, well. If it isn't time for the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch of 2017!!!

Considering the amount of applying contestants (236, unless I'm mistaken?), I think it's safe to say that a lot of us were happy that the competition wasn't discontinued after all, but only went on a hiatus for a year in order to spare room for what'll possibly become the biggest NGADM in Newgrounds history :O!!!

Let's make it happen!

Now, out of all the applicants, unfortunately only 64 could move on to the actual competition stage. That said, it has been said before, and I'll say it again; not applying is a fairly *cough* certain way not to win ;)

There are a ton of highly skilled musicians in the contest, so the competition will be tough to say the least. This year, the top auditionees were put up against each other, and the bottom auditioners were paired as well. With any luck, this will lead to both a fair game, and motivation to pour real effort into loads of incredible music. Unless I'm mistaken, on some previous years the people at the top have occasionally enjoyed an advantage by being paired with lesser scorers, though perhaps not in the round of 64. There have been years with groupings of 4 as well, but this year we're back to the 1 vs 1 deathmatches (aside from the teams)!

I'm sure there'll be a lot of emotions spreading through the air as the tension increases with every round. Even so, hopefully we'll all be able to remain civil, respect the other contestants, as well as the organizers and judges. Speaking of the judges, they've worked very hard to filter through all of the music so far, in order to give us the 32 segments of the deathmatch; each consisting of all in all 64 artists/teams, which makes for 69 competing musicians altogether.

Here are the hard workers themselves (in the same order as the given scores will be displayed):

@Bosa @ChronoNomad @EDM364 @Samulis @SkyeWint @TaintedLogic

A huge thanks to them for the work done, and for the work to come! Let us competitors not lose to them in terms of spirit!

Anyway... The entire point of this post is to give you another place to see the summarized results, as I've taken on the role of the Scribe this year. Thus, I'll cease my yammering, and get on to the numbers!
Without further ado, here are the results!!

And those are all who made it in this year! If you haven't yet done so, make sure to listen to some of the tracks :)

By the way, please remind me to ask for the Excel files next time...

Considering I manually wrote out hundreds of numbers, it would be beyond a miracle if I didn't get some of them wrong, so let me know it you make note of some remarkable errors.

So, with all this commotion, it's time to get our creative engines running! And I expect the show to be a lot of fun for the observers as well.

Over and out!

Music Contests & Cover ft. Etherealwinds!

2017-05-25 12:53:55 by LucidShadowDreamer
Updated

Hello everyone!

So the NGADM will be starting soon, which is very exciting :D!
I am definitely planning on taking part of it, and I hope many of you do as well!

Also, the chipscompo is a new up-and-coming set of contests. I recommend you either check out the NG post about it, or the website itself!

That said, the main reason I've writing this post, is because I want to promote a collaboration with @Etherealwinds, which we finally managed to get together a video for! Huge props to Jordi for his tireless editing. As you might suspect, in this collaboration of ours, I played the piano (+ threw together some strings), while Jordi sang some lovely words in a beautiful manner!

We'd be very grateful if you'd be so kind as to check out our joint effort!
Without further ado, here ya go:

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rlDE44Fks0

 

Thanks a lot for the support; I hope you enjoy the listen!
Unfortunately, NG cannot really allow covers at the moment, but if you want to download the track, you can get it here:

https://instaud.io/YaX

 

That's all for me this time. I suppose the next time I write, it might be more about the NGADM, so stay tuned ;)
Until then,

m0lecular - Soundwaves in Liberty

2017-05-10 15:40:50 by LucidShadowDreamer
Updated

Greetings.

I would like to inform you of an under the radar project that has been in the workings for a while. It's a collaborative album, between myself, and some fellow NG musicians. The project was initiated by @backwardecho, and to a large extent organized/moderated by @ForgottenDawn. The other participants are:

@Phonometrologist
@EvilRaccoon
@Mattashi
@Enzer0
@SoundChris
@LarryNachos
@JacobCadmus
@RealFaction

More importantly, the purpose of the album was to celebrate the existence of a common friend of ours, namely @MactaMendax. He is known by many names, more than most people can keep track of. Dem0lecule, silencefreedom, Kat Maestro, SnowTeddy, Anarkat & Agitat0r, to name a few. So chances are you've heard of him!
He has simultaneously been lurking in the shadows, and openly created some marvelous pieces of music, as well as art. Even more so, he always helps those who are in need. So now, we all came together in order to show our support. Thus, we would thank you for checking out the (free) album we put together:

m0lecular - soundwaves in liberty

4894290_149444524993_a2200694448_16.jpg

 

Other than that, because dem0 is a kind soul and always helps out those who need it most, we also want to highlight a charity. If you would be so kind, please check it out:

https://www.gofundme.com/help-my-abused-girlfriend-move


Naturally, most of the tracks already are, or will be posted to Newgrounds as well. We recommend you check out the album, though ^____^
 

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this, and for checking out what we've made! That's all for this update.
Over and out!

A Friend in Need - Consider Helping!!!

2017-01-20 21:59:46 by LucidShadowDreamer
Updated

4894290_148496671983_Justina2.png

This is Justina, a good friend of mine.

She is currently going through a very rough patch in life, and she is facing both medical and residential emergencies. It would mean the world to her if you helped her out just a little bit, financially. You can read more about the specific situation, on her GoFundMe:

https://www.gofundme.com/medical-residential-emergency/

I donated a small amount myself, and I hope you find it within yourself to help as well! Even if you cannot contribute monetarily, you can still help in sharing this with others! Thank you.


In related news, I composed a small song dedicated to her today, in order to spread the word. You can listen to it here on Newgrounds, if you feel like it:

The Aberrant Snowflake

Or watch the failed video on Youtube.



Edit: On second thought, it's probably worth mentioning that she has a youtube channel, and that she is a wonderful singer as well.

 

 


That's all of your time I intend to take. Thank you once again for listening, and I hope you have a wonderful day.

A New Year Approaches

2016-12-31 12:00:36 by LucidShadowDreamer
Updated

Well, well, well.

I haven't been as avid a poster here as usual, but the time has come for an update. This year has been a weird one; perhaps even more so than most of the previous ones I've experienced. Not just for me, I feel, but from what I gather, it's how a lot of us are feeling.

For once, I don't really have that much to say, other than that I hope the coming year will be a good one! Instead, I'll leave you with a final piano piece (this year), which I recently finished composing:

 

Naturally, it's here on Newgorunds as well.

It's been a while, but I wrote a new blog post as well. That is, on my actual blog over at blogger. If you feel like reading a few further thoughts I've had this year (nothing mindblowing; just a basic summary), feel free to do so!

Now, I'll go ahead and celebrate New Year's Eve. I hope you have a good one too, regardless of how you're celebrating, and even if you aren't  ^   ^

Happy New Year, and see you in the next one!

New Game - A Sweet Typing Thrill

2016-09-03 19:28:39 by LucidShadowDreamer
Updated

Hello everyone!

It has been a while. I've been enjoying the rest of my summer, watching anime and spending a lot of time with friends (traveling to Japan; you know... The usual stuff). However, I have also been working on a lot of projects on the side. And I've been sitting on one of them in particular for a while now.

It's finally time to annouce that I've uploaded a sequel to a very popular game I released last year, called "Playing With Letters".

I got request upon request to make a follow-up game, so I've complied with the wishes of the people who enjoyed the original, and created: "A Sweet Typing Thrill".

 

4894290_147294529632_NewsPostAd.png

 

It took quite a while to make, but I'm really happy with the game, no matter how it performs. It's probably not the smartest idea to upload it right now, as the Ludum Dare votings are going on, but I've been holding on to this one for too long already :)

Now, there are a few notes I want to make about the game.

Not unlike the original, the game is fairly difficult. But people seemed to like that, so I hope it won't turn all too many people off. It also stayes true to the format. The game is just as much about the story as it is about the puzzles, so playing the first game is probably a good idea before moving on to the second one.

As I note in the desciption, the solution to the first 'puzzle' is "I understand". I decided to write it out, so people don't give up on the game once "Yes" and "I do" fail. There is also a hint in the medal, but I don't think everyone will check them out. The first stage is not really a puzzle, but more of a test of the mechanics, to make sure that everything works just as it should. It's also a reference to the previous game, which has a similar level. However, I should've made it clearer what one is supposed to type. Anywho, moving on from that little blunder!

EDIT: If you're here because you got stuck at the riddle, I won't give you any hint per se, but I think it's really worth mentioning that if you've figured out the solution, make sure you include a "the" before the solution. After all, it's a specific noun, so a response without the "the" isn't really proper grammar, I suppose. There are other reasons why I didn't grant the possibility of multiple phrasings in the answer too, but sorry for that anyway if it gave you an inconvenience.

I promised a hint about the secret ending, so let me explain. There isn't really much of a puzzle, as the secret ending isn't really even announced all too well. You can get it by replacing the answer of the very last puzzle with something else. I didn't want it to take away from the main story too much, so I kinda left it in as a semi-meta perk for those that are really interesting. As for the hint, let's just say that I thought for quite a while what the title of the game should be, hehhe...


As usually, I created the background music for the game myself. I actually have a youtube channel nowadays where I upload stuff from time to time, so I'd appreciate it if you checked it out. Here's the video of me playing the soundtrack of the game on the piano:

The thumbnail art was made by Yakovlev art :)

I'm sure there was something else I was supposed to write in this already long post too, but I can't seem to think of what it could've been right now...
So maybe we'll leave it like this, and if it comes back to me, I can edit the post :3

Well, I can't imagine anyone reading this entire post, but I hope you enjoy the game regardless ;)


I have a feeling I'll leave this post up for quite a while.

I hope you're all doing fine! And until next time...

Hello fellow NG users, and HAPPY ROBOT DAY >:D!!!

I really took a long time on me to update this thingy, but I'm finally getting to it :V
Today, I don't have much to say, except that I'm working on something which'll hopefully be pretty big. But it's a secret!

I am mostly here to promote my, along with other people's stuff  ^  ^

As it is indeed Robot Day, I ended up making something weird in what was pretty much the last minute, as I wanted to participate in something cool on NG this year as well.
 

The style of this track is quite different from the content I usually create, so I can't assure any level of quality xD

Anywhos. The cover art I used is wonderful. It's a piece which was also made for Robot Day this year, by @Kamikaye!

Check it out over here:

http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/kamikaye/robot-general

 

Apart from Robot Day, I also feel like giving a couple of other shoutouts. Not that my shoutouts really have that much of an impact, but if you're reading this right now, and you decide to look into what I'm shouting out, you'll know for certain that it helped someone ;)

@EtherealWinds released his debut single a while ago! If you don't mind hearing some lovely singing, combined with effectful and rather personal lyrics (and great instrumentation), have a listen to this:

 

You won't regret it ;)
If you want more information about it, I suppose you can also check out his news post :p

Finally, now that I'm at it, I might as well recommend a cool animation from 2013 as well!

Ever since it was released, I've loved this one, and thus I've seen it several times! Only fairly recently though, did I get in contact with the creator, out of mostly, pure coindicence! As I said, I don't think this'll make much of an impact on the overall stats of the animation, but you'll definitely enjoy watching it :D
It's also quite aptly (to a certain extent) kind of robot-themed? A little? Maybe? You decide xD

So check out "Menu"

(http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/619237)

Created by mr. @Test-Object sensei sama :3
 

As much as I would love to show you even more cool stuff, this post is already really long. As I said, I have a 'secret' (solo) project in the works, which I hope I'll manage to finish fairly soon. We'll see how ever-more-procrastinating me will manage to fare with that though :'D

Either way... Have a great time, all of you!

Until next time ;)

Life Goes On

2016-06-01 10:50:16 by LucidShadowDreamer
Updated

 

Oh wow. I'm happy to announce that @Anarkat (to many, known as Dem0lecule) is back with some more music for us. To add to that, I'm incredibly honored to tell you that one of his latest tracks, is dedicated to me. And that's not all! It just so happens to be an incredibly well made track too. I can't really recall anyone dedicating a piece of music to me before. Sure, several people have remade my music, which is amazing in its own right! And some people have been inspired by stuff too, which is also great. But something feels a bit different about this one! So I urge you to check out this powerful piece of music:

 

 

It's pretty great isn't it? Show it some love, would you :3

 

Other than that, I tried to sing a bit in a cover I uploaded recently, after I was given some coaching by senpai @EtherealWinds :'D

If you want to have a listen to that as well, here you go:
 

 

I think that's really all I have for you now! A bit of a shorter post this time, for once. I need to get back to writing my two last essays, before I've got the entire summer free! :)

Take care, all of y'all.
