Themes ▼

there are three types of ponies: earth ponies, unicorns, pegasi.

however there is one type of force that affects all mass from a large distance: gravity.

for a pegasus, falling isn't that big of a deal. an earth pony may disagree

this week's theme: falling
whether it's falling out of bed or falling out of cloudsdale.
whether it's the best thrill an adrenalin junkie could hope for, or a disproportionately terrifying experience.
or this.

write a song about it.


  • 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 4/20/2013 6:00pm EST (see the "Deadline" countdown for a better idea of when this is.)
  • PLEASE enable downloads on your entry. Even if you think your entry is bad, someone else will think otherwise. (also it helps to prevent archive decay, since a TB mod can grab a copy and archive it.)
  • head to irc (or the flash link if you like pony emoticons) for a sync-listen once the deadline reaches zero!

The Final Flight of Captain Yuri Hooves Rararoscosmos 4/14/2013 6:14:55am No.2 - Score: 2
Close your eyes.

At The Bottom of The Universe Serrated Skies 4/14/2013 3:36:45pm No.3 - Score: 1
So, I was philosophizing the other day about what you would see if you were to fall to the bottom of the universe. What would that look like? Would it be pure nothingness. Could one possibly fully perceive a lack of anything. A lack of color, matter, even a place where there was no black to take the place of the absence of color and light.
I think I've finally gone mad...

I done sounds in response to the picture. That cutey picture. So cute. Yes very.

I thought of making a really dramatic track about this, but then I looked at their faces and god damn it I can't make anything but happy go lucky music about the CMC.

Take care

I was like "trance is associated with flying so why not make trance" sorry

CaptainFluffatun - Faceoff (Cherax Destructor's haven't named this yet Mix) (WIP) Cherax Destructor 4/20/2013 10:43:03am No.8[t] - Score: 1
Falling. I'm certainly ~falling~ behind schedule. THERE'S JUST SO MUCH TO DO. This is one of those things. It's due today. I think I will be spending sync-time finishing it up. Let me know what you guys think of it so far!

(Koroshi-Ya was going to rap over this but he is a forgetful/lazy bum. Also: this was actually a really good theme and I'm saddened that I didn't have time to do anything for it x_x)

My imagination for this song is that you're drifting slowly down to earth. And everything looks so beautiful.

This was my first attempt at doing something with orchestral elements and I feel like it's kinda messy towards the end... if anyone has mixing protips send them my way.

Plummet DIGIT4L 4/20/2013 2:55:01pm No.13[t] - Score: 1
I sorta deviated a bit during production but it sounds nice,
Also my first attempt at a track above 130 bpm :)

Kinda fits the theme :\

Cutie Mark Skydivers Magnitude Zero 4/20/2013 3:42:56pm No.14 - Score: 1
The CMC finally decide to try for skydiving cutie marks. Turns out it was their special talent all along. All three of them. Yup.

Sometimes, people dream about falling out of the sky. It can be both an exhilarating and terrifying experience.
