Are you ready for a CHALLENGE?!

Presenting the first real contest here at Seikens! Yes, it is a real contest with a prize and everything! Um... there will be a prize, I promise. Something good! Probably a Seiken Densetsu CD or something.

Anyways, to the contest!

Faalstar, Lester and I will be judging the contest.
Anyone can enter! Just e-mail your entries to Sheexy At Hotmail Dot Com!
Please save your files as .wav if you can!
There will be four rounds: FFA, SoM, SD3 and LoM. Each round offers a possible 5 points for a total of 20. If there is a tie it'll be resolved through something from DoM.
You must record at least 45 seconds of whistling with no music playing in the background.
Either remember the track or have it playing on headphones.
I have no idea how long it'll take y'all to get the tracks to us so I am going to give each of the rounds like two weeks to go on. There will probably be a hiatus while I am in Japan, but don't worry, we'll complete this thing!
Lowest scoring game for each individual will be dropped.
I won't judge entries until I get all of them in. It'll be done randomly, I won't know who submitted which one until after I score them.


First round!

Download -- In Search of the Sacred Sword

I love this track. Just to be fair I uploaded my whistling for you pros to scoff at:

Download -- Sheexy's Shot


Alright people, the track is there, get to recording!
All entries for this round are due APRIL 28!

You picked my favourite track from FFA! And not an easy one to whistle either.

Update to the main post people.

Lowest scoring game for each individual will be dropped.

I won't judge entries until I get all of them in. It'll be done randomly, I won't know who submitted which one until after I score them.

On one breath?

Also, I was convinced you were a bird at 10 sec.

No, you can breathe XD

I took a breath like 10 times during this whole ordeal.

Also, that would be so cool to have a bird that could whistle this stuff XD
That would be cheating. :o

Aww man, I hope you can get one!

Don't worry, if you miss this first track you can always hit up the rest! It'll be quite a bit of time between rounds.

Another note added to the main post.

I need all entries by SATURDAY THE 28 OF APRIL.

Crap, 4 days! OK, this I tackle tomorrow.

BTW, I was always surprised that this song didn't get remixed on the Thoughts Ride on Knowledge CD. Kinda disappointing.

It is really sad this didn't get remixed on that CD... I kept waiting for it and it never came...


Guys, if enough people vote on it I'll move the due date back.

That's fine, I just didn't think many would have access to MP3 powers.
I was expecting MS Sound recorder. :P
