Christmas compo 2016 - dance or devout



We have xmas compo also this year if we just believe in it!

So let's try it this time without the compo system and see how things can go bananas or gingerbreads in a new way...

Rules:

-The style of music should (roughly speaking) fall in one of these categories:
1) devout music to arouse religious feelings
2) dance music for Christmas elves (or children dressed up as elves if you don't believe in elves)
-All the platforms allowed (especially Chiptune platforms such as XM but also others)
-Remixes (& covers) allowed ...as long as the original is a Christmas song. If your song is a remix, include "remix" into its title or you won't get any presents this year.
-Coops allowed
-One entry per user (if coop, then another is allowed ...if it's good)
-Upload your song as an OGG (or something that can be opened with OpenMPT)
-Recommended length: 2 min - 5 min
-Prize: https://www.alko.fi/tuotteet/343757/Joulugl-gi-Vadelma

-Deadline: Winter solstice astronomical moment (in Finland)
-Voting deadline: You can still vote on the Boxing day (until Swatch internet time reaches zero beat on that day ...that is 23:00 UTC).

How to upload: Place your file in the Internets and send the URL to flagfranz_koopa by using Nectarine messaging system, use topic "my xmas song". Write on that message which program did you use to make your tuna (also other essential technical info such as file format, channels, VSTs is welcome). Remember to leave infofields empty.

How to download: A download link for the compopack will appear on this thread soon after the deadline has passed.

How to vote: Send your votes (rating 1-5) and comments to flagfranz_koopa via Nectarine message system, use topic: "my xmas votes"
Here is an example message, use this format:
01 - 3 stars, "this sucks"
02 - 2 stars, "this sucks too"
03 - 1 stars, "this sucks even harder"
04 - 1 stars, "can't believe how much this sucks"
et cetera

The compo deadline has arrived and days are now getting longer again. I gave one participant "few hours" extra time to add final touches. I expect compopack to be downloadable soon after I get his tuna. Keep on watching this thread!

OK, download link for the compopack is here:
https://sabercathost.com/2tXy/xmas-compo-2016-eight-entries.zip

The compopack includes now also the entry 08 which was submitted late

Individual download link for entry 08 is here:
https://sabercathost.com/2tXx/08.mp3

See the voting instructions on the first message of this thread.

An additional challenge for flagShinobi: one author said he's using your samples. Can you guess which entry is in question?

Important!

One participator had misread the deadline info, but we add him to the compo in any case. So here's the entry number 08.

(The compopack and song infos above have been updated to include this entry)

Compowinner: Lemonade
Compo organizer's fave: Yzi
The song with most five star votes: Yzi

Result table:

1st (entry 04, 59.5 points) lemonade - Taivaanvalkea
208kb, 10 chnl, xm, milky tracker
composed by Leri Leskinen

2st (entry 03, 57 points) franz_koopa - Schwebend durch psychedelische weihnachtsmuster
15 chnl, fm-samples, it, openmpt

3rd (entry 08, 55 points) Shinobi - Back from Eternity
SID, SidWizard

4th (entry 06, 44 points) Yzi with kids (featuring Starchaser as Santa Claus) - Total Merry Christmas Show

6th (entry 01, 38 points) rage - christmas santa
protracker 2.3D [win], 4-chnl, mod

8th (entry 07, 37 points) serpent - risuja jouluksi
renoise
composed by Sibelius ("Giv mig ej glans, ej guld, ej prakt"), James Lord Pierpont ("Jingle Bells"), Finnish lyrics by Martti Korpilahti ("En etsi valtaa, loistoa") and Kullervo ("Kulkuset")

--
There were 18 voters. Entry 02 got 18 votes and others 17 because the artist did not participate in voting himself. I used absolute voting numbers instead of averages in any case because it did not affect the standings.

Yzi gave 3.5 stars for the winner despite of floats were not thought of being a part of the voting system

Winner's average rating was 3.5

The prize (or at least almost similar product) has been sent to the winner. Let us hope that post office can handle it.

See all the votes and comments here (it has two sections: 1) classified entry by entry 2) total data dump):

Thanks for participants, congratz for the winner.

I hope everybody has had a sexually satisfying Christmas

Thanks everyone, for votes and comments. I've been a long-time lurker and finally decided to submit something. I'm still not a great composer but I am only improving over time - or so I hope!
