No backstory. No plotting. Just drumnbass.

The Crystal Refracts AdamTh3Walker 11/17/2012 8:03:16pm
No.31 - Score: 4
This is how I felt when ponies started appearing again on my television screen.

Pink Under Cover Spy FLAOFEI 11/14/2012 6:01:32pm No.9 - Score: 3
My first idea was to remix one of the songs, but while watching the episodes the second time when I realized, the background music is really catchy; so instead of remixing one of the songs I decided to base this piece on the background music. If you pay attention to the background music you will notice these are the same chords as played when Pinkie takes of her disguise as Fluttershy (which also is where the vocals are from)

Crystallus Fabula A2Z 11/16/2012 9:53:13pm No.15 - Score: 3
A modern take on the tale of the prosperity, enslavement, and liberation of the Crystal Empire

The Journey for the Crystal Empire VINXIS 11/11/2012 3:22:42pm No.2 - Score: 2
I need to get a life...

Legend of Spike Chrome Dash 11/11/2012 4:42:44pm No.3 - Score: 2
I wrote this in about two hours. I will make this a regular thing now, It's really fun. This is a song about Spike's legacy. I would have spent more time, but I have enough projects backed up as it is. I kept it short and sweet, and beautiful. Enjoy!

"> " type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100%"> raised in west canterlot [voodoopony] 11/17/2012 6:11:55pm No.26 - Score: 2
this song is about absolutely nothing. not even the title, really.

A Heart as Black as The Night SilverPoyozo 11/17/2012 8:33:35pm No.36 - Score: 2

The Activation of the Crystal Heart Admiral Yoshi 11/14/2012 6:46:14pm
No.10 - Score: 1
Orchestral theme for when the Crystal Heart is activated.

King Sombrero's Crystal Fiesta El Carbon Dust 11/15/2012 4:30:36am No.11 - Score: 1
So King Sombra is somehow turned into an ethnic stereotype and trapped in a pinata for a thousand years and now he tries to throw a great fiesta to celebrate his escape and he asks Carbon Dust to make some ethnically appropriate music for the event but Carbon Dust is bad at genres so it only sounds sort-of-Mexican. But he sloppily puts a lot of King Sombra samples in it so the king is happy. Then Twilight starts singing the first verse of "The Ballad of the Crystal Empire" and El King is sad. Then he gets defeated or some crap idk, but it makes the music change style at a certain point.

When I was making this, I accidentally deleted the vocal samples from the sequencer and I was like oh no but then I realised that I could save them... with their history!
