So aside from working hours on end on my own manga I'm a videogame music composer. I've recently entered this music competition for 2004 in a community I go to, GamingW. The competition happens once every year at the end of the year. The competition is naturally called GW (Gaming World) Composer Wars because the object of it is to simply write battle music to be judged against others. I'll be judged on music theory, originality, and how well it fits the 'battle' theme of the comp.
Here's my entry:http://kosuke.affordable-anime.co.uk/Cinema.mp3

Entry - Looped version.
Since I know like 80% of the comp entries will be rock/heavy metal based I decided to aim for something more...not like that. When the judge said 'battle music' many people assumed for RPG. Since rock/based type stuff works for most battle themes, what I'm most worried about is not winning the mainstream vote. Anyway, some suggestions before submition would be cool.
Also, something I just finished:http://kosuke.affordable-anime.co.uk/Menu%20Screen%20Practice.mp3
This isn't a submition. It's just some practice making menu-screen music.
