Themes ▼

you know how people say "the sky's the limit" when they're talking about unlimited stuff?

well, turns out the sky is limited.

and there are two different species trying to live there.

this week's theme:



which will prevail? how epic will the battles be? how does it affect the world as we know it?

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 5/11/2013 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!

Fun fact: Most of the rises, crashes, and percussion were made from gunshots or explosions.

Rainbow Dash Uses Medieval Biological Warfare FLAOFLLAAFFAAFEL yeah, for once im not even serious about that 5/11/2013 9:57:20am
Di'Juno: In Medieval times people would load catapults with sacks of sh*t and launch it at enemy strongholds. This would make their enemy soldiers sick. Primitive biological warfare!

This song was originally going to be my senior project, but I decided to use a different one for that. I was PLANNING on making new material for this Toastbeard, due to it being right up my alley, but alas, school got in the way and suddenly it was Saturday afternoon. This song kinda fits I guess. It could be the end credits music for a movie about sky battles (after all, I did originally intend it to be credits music).

As for where I'm going to go with it, I'm going to go up another key as opposed to blowing my musical load too early and coming back down. Also, the second chorus is copy-pasted, due to 6-month-ago-Fluff being lazy. I'm going to switch up the instrumentation to keep it fresh every time.

As for percussion, I tried to make the timpani stand on its own when I made this. Evidently, not a good idea, because some of the hits are ODIGFEWJLKFGEWBJLKQB *LOUD* and others are quiet as balls. I'll probably turn down the timpani and layer it with a bass drum.

I'll shut up now.

Griffins are trying to take over Cloudsdale with their heavy bass.

Finished (and by that I mean started) writing and mastering this song on a plane to Arizona this morning; I'm pretty happy with it.
