    Dare 16 - Be afraid, be very afraid!... - VOTING


    Well, here is the bit we love and hate: VOTING.

    Rules: anyone who participated must vote (otherwise they loose all their points)
    Anyone who did not participate but has been with Freesound more than 3 months and has 5 posts or more or has uploaded at least one sounds can vote.

    Voting: list your 10 favorite entries starting with the best and work your way down.
    The one you rate first gets 10 points, the next one 9 and so on...
    It is OK to write one or two lines about each piece to say what you liked or didn't like about it.
    For more detailed comments either leave your comments at Soundcloud or use the discussion thread.

    EDIT: deadline for voting 10-Nov-2012

    You are highly encouraged to comment on other people's work.

    Thank you for participating.

    Spoke with AlienXXX the other day. I made two entries, and we decided to let only one entry into the competition. It is The Visit. So "Experimental Soundscapes" has been withdrawn from voting.

    Thanks!

    I just put the list up there in case anyone wanted to have a final listen before voting. smile

    for me it was the unless factor smile

    10 - "a planned murder" by 11linda

    07 - "Reminiscence (Happy Halloween)" by afleetingspeck

    01 - "Deadline" by cajo

    I've changed the order after giving the entries another listen.
    After realizing I could only pick ten, I auditioned the tracks again and chose accordingly.
    If I didn't place your track among the top ten, it was only out of painstaking deliberation.

    I am still astonished at how many people entered this Dare and the diversity of styles that surfaced.

    Great job everyone!

    Sorry for being so slow. Apparently there's airbubbles or pumpkins (at least that's what my ISP wants me to believe) in my internet connection, causing it to be very unstable, leaving me with no possebility to listen to anything via stream or download. Really a drag sad

    So here's my votes, starting with the highest score from the top.

    Freesound / Soundcloud / Name of entry / Pts.

    11linda / 11linda / Dare-16: a planned murder / 15

    ThatsWhatYouCallClas / That'sWhatYouCallClass / OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO / 1

    ....And comments in assorted order.

    11linda 11linda Dare-16: a planned murder

    The detuned piano is such a treat, it really creates a spooky side to this play. I love the begging voice too, but i must admit it comes to a sudden halt. It's great to hear this, and understand what's going on, step by step, as the piano still reminds me that theres more to come. It's so well put together, and so very well mixed too. Wow, it spooks me!
    ------------------------

    TiAmIsTiAm TiAmIsTiAm That Wrecked The Party

    A very short entry, but i think i got the message. This is more blood than suspence, but horror is the game here, no doubt about that.
    ------------------------

    escortmarius escortmarius Donttrickortreatatthehauntedhouse

    It's alive! I simply love the way the crying bird follows the dark music every now and then. Howling wolves, chains and church organ, this is a real (trick or) treat. The kids become the hunted, when hunting for treats, and the outro music is just spot on! I felt entertained by this entry!
    ------------------------

    cajo cajo-m deadline

    Scary atmosphere, very scary. The voice gives a great tension, but i wish i could understand more of what was being told in the last third of the story. I like the deep sound of a pianostring ringing out, every once in a while, it sort of gives the whole piece a "doomsday feel" that suits it.
    ------------------------

    AlienXXX AlienXXX The night of the living Dares v3

    The mad scientist... so great an idea! It's a brillinat story, told very well by the choice of sounds you've made and mixed. It even has got the elements of surprise, the slamming of a pianotop (i'm not sure, but it sounds like that) that gives such a great bang, the breath, and the clock that indicates that time is running out. Very cool entry AlienXXX!
    ------------------------

    afleetingspeck afleetingspeck reminiscence

    I close my eyes and i'm in some kind of halloween platform / jump-over-the-scary-pumpkins game. I really like how you have melted halloween into some kind of game music genre. All the layers of instruments you've made, really get me to love this entry. It's not just halloseen-scare, it gets me to feel like i'm running from the big bad pumpkinhead! Hectic and very well composed, and spot on!
    ------------------------

    iwanttodj iwanttodj be afraid be ver

    A bit chaotic, but still in the essense of the halloween darkness. It brings me back to "the birds" by Hitchcock. It's somehow like a scary documentary, but i haven't fully understood the story it aims to tell me.
    ------------------------

    da_butch da_butch zombination

    I like the heavy rain against the windshield, in the beginning. And the way the rising drone gets me to the chrash is just great. And nice work getting the rain back in the picture again. I won't sit here and tell the whole story in words, but this is truly a great story you've made. all in all very nice work!

    Oh, and plus one for the Zombies grin
    ------------------------

    mojomills mojomills I Do Believe In Spooks

    Midnight fishing, gone bad, very bad! I like how the radio is turned off, just to be sure, then turned on again.... no wait!! What IS this noise. You made it spooky and great. A very nice soundscape / play!
    ------------------------

    carlsonmahloan Ryan Olson 4 Ryan's Spooky Track

    MMmmmm.... Ghosts grin Very nice suspence. It takes me to a haunted place, where i shouldn't be. From the sound of it, some kind of medical experimentational room. Well at least that's where the reverb takes me. I be warned!!
    ------------------------

    carmsie Carmsie Melodie Remember

    Spooky... i must say! I love the little musicbox and the kids laugh. The whole composition somehow reminds me of new years eve. Not that poeple usually gets shot here around that time, but still. At the same time it's a bad omen for those with something in their closet. As i said... spooky!
    -----------------------

    Bliss N/A Dropbox The Visit

    Very dark ambient composition. It really draws me in between the layers of sound. I like the pulsating drone along the way, and especially the little musicbox in the end. For some reason the ending isn't really my taste, but overall it's really an entry that gives me chills (in the halloween sense)
    ------------------------

    thatjeffcarter thatjeffcarterwashere Under the Shadow

    I like the way you make the sound angry. The very dark and unfriendly piano note just continues to give me chills, especially the reversed ones. The panning just enhances the unpleasent feeling of anger, somehow. It's very much the atmosphere of a halloween gone electric! Great entry!
    -----------------------

    ThatsWhatYouCallClas That'sWhatYouCallClass OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    I miss a little more "action" in this piece. It's somewhere between ambient music and a soundscape. It's a great dron, but i wish you'd have done a little more.
    ------------------------

    BurninVernon WildBill "burnin" Vernon Follow Me Halloween 7 0
    Very nice horror soundscape you've made there. I love the background music you've put in there, it mixes nicely with the organ later on. A very haunting soundscape, that takes me into someplace i really don't want to visit. A church for the lost souls. The reverb on the footsteps, and the organ, gives me the feeling of being in a church just like that. Eventually it sounds like the souls are taking form, into somethin horrific!
    -----------------------

    Remember that this by no means personal. I just had to give points like every body else. I sort of found my own system, giving points in different categories, and it makes it a lot easier. But bottomline; Wow, what a lot of entries, i really loved them all!!

    Results will be announced shortly after voting ends.

    Because 'tis election season on the west side of the planet, I'd like to say something about OUR voting.
    In no particular order these are the users I doubt would vote. Not saying it's a bad thing, but that's what it seems like:
    That'sWhatYouCallClass
    Andymanister
    iwanttodj
    Wildbill Vernon (iffy here)
    Carlson Ryan

    Even then, we still have had about 10 voters, no? I'm seeing two potential voters in AlienXXX and escortmarius, and I think that's where it'll end.

    Hopefully I'm wrong!
