Looking for music for my next Madness Flash...

Sup All,

I plan to make another madness flash, it will be probably be my last madness tribute so I really would like to go all out and start working on it asap. Heres the thing. The idea i have for this flash requires a specific sound. Something thats Holy, yet technical, and glitchy. Something powerful, yet fast paced enough to animate some action too.

This one SONG in particular would've been perfect if not for the fact that it uses FinalFantasty music, and its short,.. and a bit shallow, but as an example of what Im looking for its perfect. In fact this song was the inspiration for the story in my head as well as the title "Madness Divinity."
So If Someone could come up with a similar sound, I would send them the outline of the flash and they could add the highs and lows needed to accompany the action.

Im looking for something with a lot of choirs and hymns mixed with a fast paced vibe, layered with alot of dubstep, and glitching.

any takers?

other samples that have I have liked:
Psalm
the other dimension
trenches
call them rogues

*EDIT* Bjra just sent me an edit that just knocked me on my ass.
there were some really close ones, and you know who you are, but it looks like Im rolling with Bjra on this one, thanks to all that submitted so fast.

PS: a big LOL, to the douché who locked himself out trying to get into my account. IPs dumbass, we can see em.

Looking for music for my next Madness Flash...

The first Robot Day went on without a hitch, for the most part, so let me take a moment to congratulate all the winners, and let you guys know that once Tom gets back from Comic-con he'll be writing out them checks asap!

Now for any of the winners that would rather have store credit instead, just reply to this post and I'll hook you up!.

So far Store Credit given to:
chickendance333
Koriigahn
JAZZA

I'm already hearing ideas on how we plan to make the next Robot Day even more exciting!!

Also I had a minigame for robotday that kinda fell through the cracks, but it should be up on the site hopefully be the end of next week. So keep a look out for that.

Congrats to all the Robot Day winners! Store Credit.. etc


Robot Day Approaches, resistance is futile!

Just a friendly Reminder, Our first ever Robot Day Kicks off July 10th. That's exacly one month away!
Lets make it the most kickass NG holiday ever!

This time the Prizes have been broken up evenly into five categories

Movie, Game, Music, Art, and Writing

Its 250.00 for first place
40.00 for second
30.00 for third redeemable in cash or store credit.

Then theres the 500.00 bonus prize for the movie (or game), that does the best job of collaborating with users from other categories , kinda like Power of 3, but for movies as well.

Deadline is July 10th 11:59PM eastern Standard time

really try and make it.

Other requirements:

All Movie submissions must have the Robot Day 2010 preloader splash which will be released the week before.
All Music submissions must have "robotday2010" in the description, or "rd2010" in the title.

you should also link to it here in the Robot Day Audio thread

All Writing submissions are being posted in the Robot Day writing thread.

All Art submissions must have "robotday2010" in their tags when submitting to the art portal, as well as be submitted to the Robot Day Art Thread

all these threads link to discussions threads where you can get advice or get suggestions on your work before officially submitting .

at this time, I haven't made a discussion thread for the animation forum, as animators tend keep their ideas close to the chest until the final reveal, but if you guys want one, and think it would help, let me know.
Also please try and make something original for RobotDay. Granted Robots are a very popular subject, and I'm sure theres already work you have that pertains to them, but we want something fresh.

In the meantime Im working on the sidebanner art for robotday, its going to be a collage of all the Robots that run newgrounds, heres a WIP of PBOT almost finished, the rest are outlined and have flat colors but I liked how this looked with the ruffs in the background . you'll see the finished piece on robot day, JEAH!

Robot Day Approaches, resistance is futile!

Check out the official thread for it here:

In here you can find info on the Sample Battle, a hip hop crew Battle for Newgrounds, MC's and producers tag teaming to create tracks in the Time Trial, and more! If you make or dig hip hop music get 'yo ass into that thread!

NGHH MC Knock Out
20 Newgrounds MC's will be pitted against each other in a ferocious battle of tongues. :) Really though, MC's will be given beats to spit venom over and at the end of the day... THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!

NGHH Art Competition
In the end winning submissions will be showcased in a flash, which will need some gangsta art to make it look less boring. The theme is 80's hip hop, so think maaad bling and Will Smith wearing pink and green!

I hate this song, and so should you. Thankfully the Greatest American Hero is here to save us from its torturous grasp.

So Frosted and I launched our PO3 game along with beatbreaker187.

M-Bot: The Game

It works like a sidescrolling Zaxxon game, and I know most of you werent around for that game but for a shooter it was pretty unique.

First thing you are gonna notice is the filesize for such a small game. This is because we wanted to add in as many filter effects as we could but keep the speed reletivatly the same on most computers. Infact almost everything with a glow,fade, or blur is a PNG.. and png files add up. So the game is pretty huge. But hey its an experiment. Its not something you'll see us do again anytime soon. But we both like how it turned out none the less.

UpDate: Got a really nice review from Mike over at Jayisgames Thanks for the review man!
