The Official Home Roulette v. Final Round RESULTS!
« on: September 05, 2016, 10:15:45 AM »
  Welcome to my first roulette! I really look forward to discovering new music and broadening my tastes. I hope you guys have fun too! :D

I am looking for 10 participants, first come first served. I’ve reserved spots for Sacul, Train of Naught and Parama, since I participated in their roulette. If any of you want to join let me know, if not the spots are open for other participants. I’ll try to do at least one round a week, listening to songs during the week and doing write-ups in the weekend. Songs will be rated out of 10 points. Sending links by Spotify is preferred, but YouTube or files or whatever is fine too. You can send live versions of songs.

List of Participants:
1 Sacul
2 Train of Naught
3 Parama
4 Evermind
5 Elite
6 Twosuitsluke
7 Luoto
8 Tyrias
9 Scorpion
10 Tomislav95

Structure

First seven rounds are normal rounds with bonus system (see somewhere below) max length 8 minutes (won't take it too strict, a little longer is fine)

----top 6 players remain---
 
Eight Round you can (but don’t have to) send me a longer song, up to 20 minutes, I will also accept multiple songs from the same artist if they flow into each other as long as the total length is no more than 20 minutes
Will be scored out of 20 points

----top 3 players remain---

EP round: Minimum length 25 minutes, maximum length 35 minutes. You have to put in songs from at least three different artists and can put in max two songs per artist. The score will be the average of the songs (which are each scored out of 10 points) times three, plus the flow (which will be scored out of 5). The maximum amount of points you can get in this round is thus 35.



Bonus Point System (Totally not stolen from Train of Naught)
You can pick one of the themes below for a submission for anyone of the rounds (max one theme per round obviously) for one bonus point. You can get a maximum of three bonus points during the roulette. You do not have to use the bonus points though! For each of the themes I listed a few songs that I really like which fit the theme.


-Piano
I just love the piano and am always looking forward to discovering more songs with a prominent part played by this beautiful instrument.

Beethoven - Moonlight Sonata: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsOUcikyGRk
Ludovico Einaudi – Divenire: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qvglWAHDak

-D0es 1t Dj0nt?
Title speaks for itself I think, songs with just some Djenty moments count and are probably a safer bet.

David Maxim Mimic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psDZdQKgzoE
Tesseract: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=get0cXOsSXg

-Rap/Hip-Hop
This is a genre I thought I’d never like but “To Pimp a Butterfly” by Kendrick Lamar proved me completely wrong. I do find it hard to write down why I like this album so much better than other rap songs I’ve heard. Sending for this bonus point is just pretty much a gamble I guess.
 
Kendrick Lamar – Alright https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-48u_uWMHY&list=RDZ-48u_uWMHY

-Short Songs
I really love quirky short songs! Anything under 2:25 2:55 counts. This again is probably slightly risky since if I don’t like a part of the song there isn’t much that can make up for it.

Syd Barrett – The Effervescing Elephant https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smVYvn
Vulfpeck - Funky Duck https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhNfddJRulQ

-Samples/Spoken Word
Anything with samples of speeches/film quotes or similar or with spoken word singing can go for this theme.

Dream Theater- Space Dye Vest
La Dispute - HUDSONVILLE MI 1956: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Jkmocw0DLU


-Trip! Trip to a dream dragon!
Anything that musically replicates the psychedelic state goes. Please use your own judgement for this.

Pink Floyd – Astronomy Domine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJh9OLlXenM
The Beatles – I Am The Walrus

My tastes:
There are few things I flat out dislike (Hardstyle perhaps) and like discovering music out of my comfort zone. The bands on my banned list probably give some idea of my tastes, I’ve made some of my favourites bold. I generally really love a variety of metal, I prefer harsh vocals more as a way to put power on a certain part than as vocals for a whole song, but there are some exceptions I really love Opeth for example. Grooviness is something I really like in metal too, music like Karnivool which just wants to make you move is great. I also love prog obviously, though I am less into very technical music than I was. I am a huge fan of bands like Porcupine Tree and The Dear Hunter that are very proggy without spewing out notes like crazy. Lately I am also really loving post-rock, it’s just perfect music to listen to while studying/doing homework etc. ( I doubt this was very helpful sorry ;p)

Fuck, my short song is 10 seconds too long :lol

I hope I can make it to the 20 minute round, got a pretty good 2/3 song-run in mind I can never send because I never make it to a single EP round.

Is that 8 minute limit a hard cap, or can it go a little over? I have some song ideas that flirt with the limit that way, but don't have much substance past the mark.

Bit of a challenging time limit actually... I'll be almost surprised if anyone will send Ne Obliviscaris in the first 7 rounds :biggrin:

I made a draft for a playlist and 2 songs exceed the time limit, one of which is easily replacable by another song of that band, but the other isn't and it's 8:01 in length :lol I hope that's overseeable

Also don't worry about the 2:35 song I can already meet 3 of the other themes and there's plenty of good sub 2:25 songs out there

I won't take the 8 minutes too strict, it's not a problem if it is a little longer, just be reasonable.

Of course, go ahead and send it!
