Just attempted to re-enter the audio portal again with a piano improv that I felt appealed somewhat to more mainstream tastes and was well done enough, but in less time than it takes to listen to the track, it was 0'd. Typical. I understand that I may not be the best composer out there or the best composer on NG, but I'd like to think my music isn't the worst on the scale. Simply because I don't write rip-offs of Howard Shore tracks with EPIC STORMDRUM doesn't mean my music deserve a 0. Sure, maybe the voter just doesn't like it, but really, is it really that bad?
Anyway, I listened a bit to the first page of audio files and it seems like the NG 12-year-olds can't get enough of LOTR soundtrack imitators, so I think I'll just sit this out until people wake up. Remember back when people like WinterWind were at the top? His early tracks may not have been the most original either, but they were still way better than the stale "battle theme" knock-offs that appear on the top rated by the dozen. Of course, there is still a chance you'll encounter something that isn't EPIC sounding, but only if accompanied by a drum machine. I miss the old days of the audio portal.
For the couple of people who still want to follow me, I also have a YouTube account at http://www.youtube.com/user/SdkComposi tions/
