Nick and all - thanks for putting together the contest. It was incredibly fun to put something together for ya! The other entries were fantastic and it was a blast to hear everyone's take on a theme!

Do drop me a line - I'd certainly love to chat about it. It actually was the result of a brain fart on a day between projects - I just went with whatever happened to pop into my head and then figure out how to stitch it together.

Cheers, Dave Chick www.gethatched.ca

Hey not to sound snarky to the contest winners , but You mentioned " it had the call letters at the beginning " as one of the things that helped contribute + I think last week there was some comment about " it would be smart to put the call at the start of the entrees " is kinda un cool as when you started the comp you had stated that it was not at all necessary to but the call out in it at all . Just saying : /

Hey Guy, really no conspiracy there, the Choir entry just seemed to appeal to the judges more than anything else -hence the win. I think I said it was not nessecary to put our existing sonicstate.com sting into the piece - or alteast thats what I think I meant

LagrangeAudio    Said...

For what's worth my entry didn't have the sting. The problem was that it wasn't in key with my composition so it meant either re-pitching one or the other which wasn't going to work (in my case anyway). I entered purely on the basis that Nick did say the sting wasn't necessary.
