The results are finally here! After hours worth of listening, judging more listening, writing and plenty of tea drinking, the judges of the SCC musical composition contest 2006 have reached their decision...
Update: Here's the page with results and downloads
.What’s it all about?
musical composition 2006 contest was all about composing music which has been inspired by Bungie music. The pieces were to be original yet to keep within the ‘Bungie’ style. Hang on, the different Bungie games have different styles don’t they?
They most certainly do, that’s one reason we asked for a description so we could see what sort of game style the composer was going for. Were the entries you got any good? Did the one I sent win?
Read on, oh curious one!
Now, before you read the results, be warned, the judges’ word is final and we will not being changing our minds. With that said, here’s the results: 3rd
Brandon Payne Piece:
Halo Finale Comments:
A nice flowing, well constructed piece which is suited well to the description given. The first section brings across tension and suspense and is therefore perfect for the dawn of battle. A nice contrasting section which conveys 'Evil' well. The end section was perhaps a little out of place in the great scheme of things here, but great work. 2nd Composers:
Matthew Walsh and Robert Kemp Piece:
Covie Town Comments:
An excellent piece. I could certainly imagine this to be suitable for a Covenant town and certainly for use in an RPG. Good use of ambient sounds, a good, steady rhythm and a very well constructed piece. 1st
Brian Hempel Piece:
Amazing piece. Excellent use of instruments to convey the soft, gliding and gentle atmosphere you set out to create according to the description. Whilst keeping true to the Halo style, you have still produced an original and lovely piece. Congratulations. Honourable Mentions
