Themes ▼

Take any element (song, quote, idea, character, event, ANYTHING) from Episode 7 of Season 3 and write a song about it.

If for you can't think of anything from the episode to write about, here's a few possibilities:
the life and trials of being in Wonderbolt Academy
lightning dust in general. (just sayin, but...this.)
hearth's warming (maybe that's its own compo ? ?? ?)


  • allotted time: ONE WEEK
  • what to submit: ONE (original, remix, or whatever) tune, in response to the theme.
  • Songs cannot be longer than 8 minutes. (Anything longer will be skipped and/or deleted.)
  • Get your entry in by Saturday 12/22/2012 6:00pm EST (see the "Deadline" countdown for a better idea of when this is.)
  • head to irc (or the flash link if you like pony emoticons) for a sync-listen once the deadline reaches zero!

Yet another WIP...

I started working on this about six months ago, and it was supposed to be my third composition (though I only had 15 seconds of music until today)

Silence of the Sky ancara22 12/22/2012 6:08:51pm No.24 - Score: 3
While training in the Wonderbolt Adacemy can truly be tough and insane at times, when it turns to night, the sounds of the Academy are almost mesmerizing .

Oh god, so late. How do I good at computers?! D:

Flying While Dizzy Carbon Dust 12/22/2012 10:54:49am No.11 - Score: 2
I found some guitar I recorded ages ago, completely changed the genre and yeah. These chords are really generic. Also I didn't use very many vocal samples from the epsipode, so this is practically pino.

Into the Sky(ft. ScootaLewis) WIP NOT EVEN DONE OKAY Seventh Element 12/22/2012 5:31:09pm No.16 - Score: 2

Also there is a lack of female vocals, which would come in about where the song ends.

Aaaaahhhhhh this is not good. Official excuse: It's inspired by LD's recklessness.

Incoming description.

Alright, got this done with. I decided to go more for the progression of the mood of the episode instead of a specific theme or character. It starts off with Dash and the other waiting for the letter, and in the same area, Dash's travel and welcoming to the academy. It's light-hearted, soft, and generally airy with just a hint of punch. The next movement is her beginning training, specifically with Lightning Dust. It picks up quite a bit of speed, lots of movement and different things going on, and drums to demonstrate both Dash's and Dust's hard-hitting attitudes. The next section is when the tornado starts stirring about, nearly killing Dash's friends and where Dash decides she might just quit the team. It's a darker part of the episode, and in a way, kind of intense. Finally, it ends with Dash being accepted back into the Academy, the training continuing, and everything in general turning out alright.

Please interpret any part as you wish, though. These were merely my initial intentions.
