you just woke up from a horrible nightmare

you've found yourself laying in bed, in the dark, with coldsweat and a feeling of exhaustion that you just can't shake

but at least it's all over, and you can take solace in the fact that it was just a dream.

but you sill can't shake that feeling....

this week's theme: waking up from a nightmare


  • 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 5/4/2013 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!

I converted my nightmares into sound.

I recommend headphones.

I thought I should use this opportunity to work on building a specific and focused atmosphere through ambiance while trying out Reason 7.0 for the first time.

New alias. Double meanings.
Sanguine Cupcake will be responsible for all my grimdark music from now on.

Stay positive!

quite rushed, only got a few hours of work in on it due to other obligations and stuff.

the person waking up from the nightmare at the end of the song is ME because i traditionally hate music of this genre.

(although i have to admit that writing it was pretty fun...)

i will probably miss the listening party :( but i will try to write comments in my votes!

Your Breakcore is lousy. It causes my ears great discomfort. You bray like an ass! You are not to speak unless spoken to! It is too much to hope but... do you speak Trap?

the only ones that listen are the ones with the least power (absolute defeatist remix) Somasis 5/1/2013 11:42:30pm No.8[t] - Score: 2

A song about Scootaloo and how she faces her fears and stuff. Sorry I can't sing :P

Have you ever had a dream where your life just fell apart
Because My dreams have been crushed and I can't sleep
I know I've been acting crazy, it's all cover up
You simply cannot know the truth, for I can't face it myself

But I had felt a little fright
She was waiting in the night
The princess helped me face my fears
And now my mind is clear

i found a previous tb entry by doofcake called "reaper of fun" and decided i liked it so i wrote a quick little thing and sang over it

NeverEnding Strife (Cover of H8_Seed) SlyphStorm 5/4/2013 5:47:18pm No.23 - Score: 2
A cover of Discord song, and therefore fits the theme of the nightmare prompt. Mostly. Kind of. Not really. I'd just like some feedback. =)

the original one I made was 12 minutes long and sci wouldn't let me upload that. It's much better. You can listen to it at:
