Rejuvenation Peak Freak 11/9/2012 12:55:31pm No.11 - Score: 9
Locked in, confined to my home,
my friends trying to redeem.
Sometime I need to come out again,
facing my fears and dreams for at least once.

Expectation CaptainFluffatun 11/4/2012 4:15:05am No.1 - Score: 8
EVERY time I present something without violins or cellos, SOMEONE comments on how I'm not making orchestral. It's absurdly annoying. I don't want to stick to just one genre. It is these expectations that prevent me from going on the "new adventure" of exploring different types of music production. This song is about my inability to go on the adventure noted in the theme, and my inability to experience fun in music when people won't shut up about how I should do it.

Here's your fucking orchestral piece, Applejinx.

"> " type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100%"> Purple Dragon Seventh Element 11/9/2012 6:23:03pm No.13 - Score: 8
Lets go on an adventure, and chase that purple dragon man.

Yeah I got nothin :C This is dumb, sorry. 7/4 is a strange time sig to work in #_#

Colgate Chrome Dash 11/8/2012 9:17:26pm No.7 - Score: 6
Your dear friend notices you in a slump. She tries to cheer you up by inviting you to go to work with her to get you out of the house. Her intentions are good, trust me. Where does she work, you ask? The dentist, of course! Don't worry, Colgate's got the plan.

Tried to vocode my voice. Didn't have enough time to get the lyrics done, so here's the instrumental.

Faceoff (VIP) Captain Fluffatun 11/10/2012 5:53:14pm No.28 - Score: 5
Sorry for the double-entry, but I made the first one in five hours and feel that this one fits the theme more.The original sucked s00p3rd1c|

Find Yourself (Toastbeard Version) Cloud 11/9/2012 10:15:09pm No.14 - Score: 4
The last one didn't post haha fuck I have to type this shit all over again.

I have been idle for sometime. I've been real down on myself because I'm extremely insecure about myself as a musician/producer. I told myself I was going to take a break from it all in general, but I didn't. I did some practice and then this happened.

This is my new adventure in Eurobeat, straying away from chiptunes. This is the first Eurobeat track I've tried that I feel comfortable showing off.

Sweetie Belle splices because I can relate to her and the CMC! I hope they find themselves in s3!

Please ignore the terrible patch in the first solo and the lack of a second solo. I'm also going to splice some Applebloom vox for the second splicing section. And I need some bells in the outro aaaaAAAAA. It is a Toastbeard version, after all

Candy and Laughter RarityTheReturner 11/10/2012 2:38:25am No.17 - Score: 3
None of that filly Lord of the Rings crap.

This is a real adventure.

Listen at your own discretion, depending on how alive your carpet appears to be right now.

If the drapes are moving, too, I'd just skip this one.

If the toaster and vacuum cleaner are talking, good lord you have excellent taste in movies.

Adventure Jx2 11/10/2012 8:35:37am No.18 - Score: 3
Sampling, sampling everywhere

Goodbye Magnitude Zero 11/10/2012 4:51:41pm No.23 - Score: 3
Every great adventure begins with goodbyes.

Journey SilverPoyozo 11/10/2012 5:24:31pm No.25 - Score: 3
Pretty generic rpg-soundtrack stuff, done in a rush.

Wandering Equestria Mush 11/8/2012 1:39:06pm No.6 - Score: 2
Wandering Equestria. I had in mind a bunch of ponies on a steady walk cycle walking through various parts of Equestria! So yeah.


100 Percent Ready To Adventure MandraSigma 11/9/2012 7:49:25am No.10 - Score: 2
Locked and Loaded to Explore and Excursion!

Generic House Quest Beetie 11/9/2012 4:54:18pm No.12 - Score: 2
You and your friends go to set out on an adventure. To a new club that just opened up on the other side of town.

This was originally going to be an orchestral song, but then I decided to go on a little adventure of my own and dive into the world of EDM.

And I had more fun making this than I should've.

my laptop died while I was making a song Kenneth "Thy Steward of Beef" Sithan 11/10/2012 12:53:21am No.16 - Score: 2
The old girl had a long run...but this TB required a little too much heart that she just didn't have...


Life of A Pirate Macarou 11/10/2012 9:28:45am
No.19 - Score: 2
Wow, it has been a while since I have submitted something to a Toastbeard competition.

Anyway, I decided to write this piece about Pipsqueak the Pirate setting sail to explore the seas and far out lands of Equestria. This was originally going to be a crazy IDM/electronica track, but when writing it, I felt that it didn't suit the character of Pipsqueak at all. Instead, I created an ambient piece about Pipsqueak relaxing on an island or by the coast after a tiring day of exploring.

Note: There may be a slight volume problem with this track, due for whatever reason EQ beats making all of my tracks quieter for some reason.
