of C64.sk's SID music
competition (8.october-13.november 2005) is nearing it's finale. What is going
to be most faourite song of the C64 music audience is yet to be decided. Voting
phase will last until the end of November 2005 and I'm sure you will be picking up
your favourites wisely.
For those who missed this years compo. Don't worry, I plan to
organise it until I get completely bored of all this crap, which is not going
to happen very soon, because this year mix of tunes was extremely enjoyable
starting with fabulous Rastertime Eater going through Hrmpfz'ish tune
not composed by Hrmpfz and ending with the tune by that dude who asked me to
shift the deadline. I'm glad that I did this because some more neat tunes appeared
in the final list of 27 submissions. Now the counting phase begins. Results will be released on late sunday evening.
All your votes are belong to us now! Thanks everybody for support.

Good tunes in the compo. Im specially impressed by the sounds many make
today. Now they only need to learn composition… hehe, kidding of course
:).. Some truly good stuff among those tunes!..

I found Transylvanian Whipping really great, but pick it up is just
a-w-e-s-o-m-e. I wonder what would have people said 20 years ago if
theyve heard it.

Thanks, thats a nice compliment.

Just talked to Drax. As he kindly noticed „Lemmie eat the raster
time“ is using exactly the beggining theme from „Deel_3“ by
Jeroen Tel (http://exotica.fix.no/…n/Deel_3.sid)
but it is played in the middle of „Eater“. Well, time goes by, my
first ripping attempt (wich was a big-time of The Party 1994) when I just
begun my scene-life surelly has broke Zyrons heart. Will this one
break yours, was it indended ?? You must decide by your own. I cant
tell it was/it wasnt – that wont change anything.

 I know about that since the very beginnig.. and I was
listening to both tunes in cycles practically all the time during the compo,
and well.. I think its not a cover or remix, but more a rip out
of motive somewhere in the middle of the tune. If you won maybe it would be
worth to start witch-hunt.. but as you ended in lower positions I think
most people will be able to tolearte this. Any opinions?

 Mh, it resembles so much my 2-years-ago Salamander2 case, and, though
all the properly motivated protest, my tune had been accepted in his 16th rank
position. Most of all, Bookers tune rocks, I like it so much,
and thats all. :D

Well… similar arguments can be made for Transylvanian Whipping, which
borrows heavily from a popular Castlevania theme. Calling it a pastiche
doesnt help – that way, I could create a pastiche of a U2 tune
next year. The thing is, noone made a huge fuss about this or Lemme Eat the
Rastertime – they were both available to vote for. What is done, is done.
However, if someone detects something like this in the future, I can only
advise him or her to speak up in time. CreamD is not a music encyclopedia (or
is he? =), so he doesnt know all the tunes ever made – we need to
help out. By the way, this reminds me of the whole Madonna/Frozen case here in
Belgium… over here, we arent allowed to play Frozen anymore because
the court ruled that a few measures were plagiarised from a Belgian
composers 80s rock tune. And they say Belgium is a
boring place =D.

 Puffff, the same happened here in Italy with a Michael
Jacksons song. Well, notes are 7 only…
14. Dec 2005 23:21
I dont care either, although I was burned last year for using
parts of a riff of U2s Discotheque in Step Aside…
…still blowing my wounds…
just kidding ;-)
But if they wouldnt play me on air anymore because of this,
I would go berzerk…

_V_ Im still unable to determine which tune I ripped most
(suggestions include Vampire Killer, Bloody Tears, Beginning from CV3)
I think the effect is partially psychological and based on the rhythm
& expectations of what Castlevania music should sound like :)
15. Dec 2005 12:05
 Yep, youre right. When I heard your yune, the first flash in
my mind was that you cloned very well the traditional 8bit instruments in
Castlevania, and I liked the citation.

I just want to say thanx for so many really f***king good tunes. Keep it
