I would love to participate, so sign me in. We need more people though, so if anyone has the ability to make a music level, DON'T be scared to join in, there's really no pressure.

I've always wanted a music contest! Thanks for putting this out there man!

I already have 2 original music levels. But they're just really experiments, both are based on loops, and in one of them you can trigger the next loop.
If I had the time I'd love to put the effort in and make a ******* song that the player can control by setting off the different loops in whatever order he wants. BUT right now... exams exams exams....... (-_-")

TheJollyRajah. Oh wow, you should really see his music levels. He'll probably win this.

Also, are you accepting any more judges? I've got a great ear for music, and I'd love to help out.

You know, the one thing I've learned during my stay at lbpcentral is to never underestimate this community. Because every time I have, I was proven 100% WRONG! So I honestly think I have good competition here. ;)

Sounds fun! If I have time between finishing my other level and Feb 27th's new game release taking over my life, I'll see if I can throw something together.

Thanks for the offer, but what i've already got are two simple experiments, that need to be builded on.

But I'm looking forward to hearing some great tunes coming from you guys!!

I really wish Mm would release a new music pack, with instruments (especially drums for some serious drum n' bass/electro music), stickers, heck maybe even guitars for the little sackboys. I think a pack like that would sell loads just as a standalone.

Man oh man, I agree 100%!!!

Even if the sounds weren't exactly of the best quality, I would still love it. Brass, strings, more percussion instruments.... and what I would love most of all is a way to control the volume, so I could put in some crescendos and decrescendos when needed.

A sound pack is a must for the nerdy music enthusiast like me!

Hey Rajah I just played your Starfox music level and a few of yur other ones.. Really impressive stuff man. Yur music has way better structure and is a lot more dense than most attempts which just involve a piano and a sponge.....

I'm just finishing up a Zoo level i've been working on for a while now.. but when i'm done with that and exams, I'll definitely have a shot at an original music level!!

superBlast
02-22-2009, 12:23 AM
alright things seem to be shaping up. 3 people are entering and i have the two judges i needed. the only thing better would be more entries. hopefully i'll be able to get 300 xp soon enough so i can give the winner something more then just getting first place.

Zommy
02-22-2009, 12:26 AM
get some inspiration from muse if you need... there good band i would say bring me the horizon but noone on here that i know of likes screamo music maybe leather...

superBlast
02-22-2009, 12:50 AM
i would like to hear someone make a metal song but i really care what genre it is as long as it's a good quality song. and remember judges don't give a song extra points to a song just because it's your genre or take away points just because you like it's genre.
(i'll explain the scoring process to you guys later)

Zommy
02-22-2009, 01:02 AM
hehe you wouldnt be able to make metal easily or it would be metal piano but you mean you couldnt care what genre? xD you said
but i really care what genre it is as long as it's a good quality song.

superBlast
02-22-2009, 01:05 AM
oops i meant i don't care which genre it is. i tend to skip words sometimes.

Zommy
02-22-2009, 01:07 AM
hehe ok. now i have a contest idea! and its to do with music

superBlast
02-22-2009, 01:14 AM
cool can you wait until mine is over? i don't wanna have competition you know?

TheJollyRajah
02-22-2009, 01:14 AM
I've already started working on my composition. You really can't classify it into any specific genre... it's sounds more videogamey than anything else... It actually sounds like something you would hear on a Mega Man game!

It sounds pretty dope. Can't wait to finish it so you guys can hear it.

Zommy
02-22-2009, 01:17 AM
sweet i hope to hear it soon because all of your others are really good
oh mines real music so it will be taking place a while from now because of how long composing songs can take...

well anyways we better start talking about the contest and/or music cause i think we're starting to go off topic, you know?

Zommy
02-27-2009, 12:09 AM
hehe kinda... well anyway...
music is great, thats on topic-ish...
anyway try ask for some help from a Mod or someone with high power on site lol so they can help which gets more publicity ask CC its to do with LBP so he might help you

superBlast
02-27-2009, 12:36 AM
ok i'll go ask. i hope it works.

02-28-2009, 05:22 AM
Can I join? I am still yet to make a new music level for this.

superBlast
02-28-2009, 06:24 PM
sure you can join. no one has posted their entry yet so you have plenty of time to make your song.

Pitcard
03-01-2009, 08:01 PM
Oh I just remembered this competition was still going, cause I've started working on a music level. Now that I've started I'd say I have a fair chance of finishing it and submitting in the next week or 2.

Is it okay to submit a level where its up to the player what way the song flows??

My set up is, about 4 or 5 different looped parts of the song.
The player is then able to trigger them, in sync with eachother of course, and change the flow of the music. Also the song will never end, so when the player's done messing around with the different themes of the music he can just go to the scoreboard and finish. The loops aren't just like a couple of notes on a piano, they're about 2 bars each and pretty dense, ie lots of instruments.

superBlast
03-01-2009, 09:46 PM
yeah you can submit it. i'll just have to figure out how i'm gonna score it.

talmasca
03-03-2009, 11:32 AM

i just got the xp share so there wil be a prize right now the prize will be 500xp.

deboerdave
03-11-2009, 06:25 PM
Hi i will join.

just recently got into making music on LBP. I already have one level that ses custom music. If you guys want to heck that out it is called "Jumper: The Red Zone" andmy PSNiis "deboerdave". But that is not the level i would like to submit. I just made a new song and seperated all the loops out so you can turn each sound off and on. This level is called "LBP dubb" and i would like to submi this level. It is currently published so you can check it out, but i plan on adding some more lighting effects, so when that s done i will delete it and republish it.

if we can enter more than one entry i might break down the music in my Jumper: The Red Zone level in a simlar fashion where you can turn on and off each loop.

Level: "LBP Dubb"
PSN: "deboer dave"

superBlast
03-11-2009, 09:07 PM
ok. i will check it out and i'll notify my judges. also i won't allow more then one submission.

deboerdave
03-11-2009, 10:25 PM
i will enter LBP Dubb then. When does the judging start as i am curently working on some light effects then i will be republishing some time in the next two days (hopefully should finish that tonight actually). The music is all done but these lights are my final touches. should i repost here after i have that done.

Astrosimi
03-11-2009, 10:40 PM
The lights don't really make any difference(not part of the judging score..), so I've come to the conclusion.

Deboerdave will recieve an eight from astrosimi.
It would have been a ten, since I've never seen a level like this before, and I think this is an awesome concept you got here.
However, the two main cons are-
-It's only a loop
-The music doesn't sound very smooth if you turn on all the switches.

But I must say I am very impressed. Good job.

So yes, I won't do that again.

Good night guys, see ya tomorrow.

no problem, i asssumed that the judging wouldnt start till the submission period was over actually, so the judges would have all the matrial on had so can pick there favorites. if not like that i am sure all the contestent would be interested in how the judging is going to work to decide the winner (i dont recall seeing this info in any of the post).

Anyway, i know that the lighting doesnt matter but i would just like to let you all know that i released the version with the lighting effects if you want to check it out agian. it came out pretty cool i have lights set up for each insturment and synced up.

Pitcard
03-12-2009, 05:41 PM
Darn it!

Hahaha Astrosimi that video was hilarious...

Ah well. You'll probably judge everything differently once you've seen the all ^^

I suppose if its interactive music, the lights have some importance! I've got synced up lights for mine too.

Looking forward to seeing all the other entries.

TheJollyRajah
03-12-2009, 10:01 PM
Heh, I actually forgot about this...

But I did put some work on it before, so I'm still in the contest.

TJapan
03-13-2009, 11:45 AM
I'm seriously considering entering... i just did my first music level... and its almost finished, but its not original... so i'll give it a go on making something original.

Does the execution matter? for instance, will i be judged lower if mine isnt interactive? or is this just based on the actual song?

superBlast
03-13-2009, 01:37 PM
based on the actual song. i would rather have have a non-interative song so it would be easier to judge but both kinds are aloud. and remember you have until march 30th to enter.

qrtda235566
03-19-2009, 11:39 PM
I'm game. Been thinking about making a music level in a kewl way. One that actually has a steady tempo. So sweet 1337.

superBlast
03-20-2009, 04:25 AM
alright. but remember the deadline is the 30th.

also to any new people i won't be able to add you to the entry list because my ps3 is being stupid and won't add any more lines.

Zommy
03-21-2009, 01:37 AM
lolz 9 dayz left before i judge xD
btw my ps3 is very badly working so if anyone can spare me some time and make a video please do that else i may have trouble judging

superBlast
03-21-2009, 02:17 AM
i think vameria (the name is spelled something like that) makes videos. maybe you can ask him/her to make videos of the entries.

qrtda235566
03-21-2009, 11:55 PM
My level is up. It's called Awezome Z0ng. It's done a lot differently than most other music contest. A bunch of loops that build upon eachother instead of standard vehicle-based music level.
PSN is awesomemans.

superBlast
03-22-2009, 01:17 AM
i would have liked if you used the entry format that is on my first post. but it's still entered though.

Pitcard
03-27-2009, 08:59 PM
Just confirming that Yes I will have my level done before the 30th :D

I know that dave and awesomemans' levels are done, how is everyone else coming along??

I hope there'll be as many contestants as possible, cause we can really raise the bar with music levels here!

superBlast
03-27-2009, 10:48 PM
good to hear your gonna make it.

i still hope more people will make it before the 30th. especially jollyrajah since he seemed almost overjoyed to have a music contest here. but i'm thinking alot of people just foregot about the the contest :(

Pitcard
03-28-2009, 01:09 AM
Hehe.. i've been working away slowly at it. All the music stuff is done, I'm just making the level more accessible and enjoyable to play. I've got a project thread for it (see my sig) ^^

Ye I'd really like to see Jollyrajah's one, he said he was working on it, but I don't think he's been on here much so ya never know _

All his music levels so far are real songs just transposed into LBP, so I'd like to see what kinda music he'd compose himself.

Silverleon
03-28-2009, 03:30 AM
Darn, only 3 days left, i might participate, but i'm not sure if i'll be able to finish in time.

superBlast
03-28-2009, 03:42 AM
well i've been thinking about making a second one. if i do then your more then welcome to join that one. unless you can create fast then go ahead and join this one.

deboerdave
03-28-2009, 05:42 AM
i hope everyone gets there levels done maybe you can send a pm with a heads up to those that havent submitted there entry yet, i have been waiting to check them out. i am moving tomorrow so i wont be able to have internet for a while, but look forward to getting back online and checking out all the entries when i get up and running again

Astrosimi
03-28-2009, 08:32 AM
Don't worry deboerdave, I'll send in the PMs tomorrow (well, today, considering it's 3 am :p)

Pitcard
03-29-2009, 07:43 PM
Mines UP!

Level Name: Making Music in the Midnight Kitchen
PSN: Pitcard
Descripiton: Its an interactive music level. The player is free to set off each loop, and string them together... making a song! There are 5 different loops. But there is also the rest of the kitchen. You can crack some eggs, bounce on a bin lid, and let the toaster go PING! To add to the music.

Showcase thread will be up soon. So if anyone wants to give feedback, I'm open to suggestions!

superBlast
03-30-2009, 01:28 AM
alright another one up. i'll check it out tomorrow

Silverleon
03-30-2009, 11:19 PM
Woot! managed to finish.

Level Name: Yaru's Darkness (Custom Song) <--- (couldn't think of anything else in such short notice :))
PSN: Yarudark

This isn't a loop, its a simple one go song, the level itself is quite empty as i didn't have time to do anything but the song in such short notice, but this contest is about the song itself that shouldn't matter much anyways right?

Pitcard
03-30-2009, 11:51 PM
Hehe nice one!... over here the time is 23:50!

Yeah I hope the judges will only judge on music cause it wouldn't be fair considering the amount of time I put into the level itself cause I still wanted to make a good, fun level outside of the contest ;D

I'll check yurs out Yaru.

superBlast
03-31-2009, 01:21 AM
we are basing our scores based on the song itself. any extra things won't be considered as part of the score.

anyway i'll check your song out later, silverleon.

Astrosimi
03-31-2009, 07:28 PM
Okay, submissions are officialy closed!

Judging will commence as soon as we get word from Zommy and Super!

superBlast
03-31-2009, 09:44 PM
i just noticed it was the 30th. so yep submissions are closed. sorry for everyone who didn't make it in time.

Silverleon
04-02-2009, 05:30 AM
I wonder who will win! Pitcard's music is good too, deboerdave's isn't bad either. :)

superBlast
04-02-2009, 09:12 PM
because my ps3 won't allow me to put any more lines in my post (stupid ps3 browser)

not to worry your still part of the contest. i think i mentioned this in a previous post.


also to everyone who wanted to enter but wasn't able to or missed the deadline, i by most chances (90%) will make another music contest. so wait until then and you can enter. also if you entered this one feel free to enter the next on.


also i'll make a new thread announcing the winner and the all the scores. i'll make it as soon as zommy and astromi (sorry if i spelled your name wrong) send me their scores.

deboerdave
04-09-2009, 04:32 AM

Either they're not done jusdging or they frgot, but i'm pretty sure it must be the judging.

Pitcard
04-09-2009, 04:45 PM
Considering its been at least a week since the deadline and the judging hasn't finished (or started???) A lot of other people could have entered. :(

Hopefully the next one will be more organised, and get more attention :)

Silverleon
04-12-2009, 07:26 AM

Pitcard with 17 pionts.

2nd place is...
Silverleon and deboer dave with 14 points

2nd place, Sweet!
Not too bad considering it was the first music level i've made i guess :)

Pitcard
04-12-2009, 06:15 PM
Thanks for teh winz. :D

Just curious.. is there a XP prize for this contest? No worries anywho, I'm pretty much at 1000 so I can buy teh expansion bundle yoke.

I'm thinking about making a recommended thread for Music Levels from members of lbpc and maybe some other lbp creators if I find any that are particularly good.

I'll have a description for each one, and maybe a short review or something.

I can get all the names and stuff I need from this thread. But if anyone else sees this and has some music levels they wanna share, PM me the level name, and your psn!

Thanks again superBlast for hosting this competition, probably wouldn't have had the motivation to make another music level without it :)

superBlast
04-12-2009, 07:00 PM
yeah there is a 500xp prize to first place
