Well I was lucky enough to make to round 2 of NGADM'14. My submission for round two is here:-
I tried to create something more thematic this time... I think to that end I succeeded, it does have repeating melodies. However I am on the whole dissatisfied with this piece. I feel like my music for round 1 (http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/585261) was much more interesting to listen to, frankly I think my round 2 piece is very boring!
It lacks dynamics, its very slow and nothing much happens. I wouldn't have posted it if it were not for it being in a competition, but its a learning curve. Also I'm not too happy with my VSTs this time, I really wanted a woodwind section sound but I've had to use single sample instruments as I don't have a package for woodwind sections. It ended up sounding a bit wierd, almost too reverby (yet it sounds dead with less).
So, I'm not too hopeful this round D: ... but I will see if the judges concur with my own criticisms.
