migrantfleet asked: "0. Write rubric for submissions." I'm curious, what sort of rubric was used to judge the contest entries? Since a song being shit is totally objective, how would you use a rubric as a qualifier? "Only used FL Studio midi piano roll"? Or "composed entirely of garageband presets"?

mspandrew: The next round. The competition is ALMOST TOO HOT TO HANDLE. Have at it, if you care. I’m thinking of modifying the “prize”. I will allow the randomly selected winner to choose between a $100 gift certificate to the Olive Garden, OR to the Red Lobster. Whichever restaurant they feel would supply the more viscerally upsetting experience. OTOH, I may just carve it up into two $50 gift...
karinosa asked: I was wondering, you are a composer, but do you also take it as a real profession? Are you studying something around music? Or is it just a nice hobbie you're really good at, hehe (although I know you probably get some profits from the albums, but you get my point).
wowwatishappenin-deactivated201 asked: I think 'Marble Depths' is album-quality, I don't know why you decided to release it for free.

All Track Art entries have been chosen.
Everyone who created a chosen piece has been notified by e-mail. Thank you so much to everyone who entered! There was a lot of talent, and over 1500 entries by the time the contest was over. So, if you weren’t picked, please don’t be discouraged - in many cases, there were plenty of entries that would have worked almost equally well for the track in question. You guys made it really...

Q: Tell me about yourself. “Me? I just love… working. Joyless labor is my favorite pastime. Those people out there? Those people having… fun? Subhuman! Subhuman fools, doomed to crawl the earth for all eternity, trapped in a fruitless search for their next hit of endorphins. But you? You understand me. You understand me, brother.” (tear off face to reveal robotic visage) ...
talk-to-nepeta-irl asked: Which of the flashes is your favorite?
Anonymous asked: You made some of the most iconic and probably all of my top favourite homestuck music, how bad could your fan music be?
seanorib asked: How did you get on the MSPA music team? Did Andrew contact you shortly after beginning Homestuck?
Anonymous asked: Have you already contacted the people who are in the running for the art contest portion of it? Or have you not gotten that far yet? I'm just curious when I should start F5ing my inbox maniacally.
Anonymous asked: Just how much work is going into organising this fan album, anyway? It doesn't seem like there would be all that much, so I'm just wondering.
Anonymous asked: Would you guys (HSG) please stop being so tsundere for Radiation? I'm publishing this through him because fuck you guys
Anonymous asked: is it true the next album will consist of nothing but dubstep?
unindex asked: My cat just wanted to know if the contest album is going to be comparable to Volume 5 in terms of size or quality. Also wanted to ask if you have any way to check for copyrighted material in the submitted songs.
Anonymous asked: >Radiation's emotional immaturity and inability to cope with a long distance relationship causes him to pick the shittiest songs and pictures in a heartbroken stupor
Anonymous asked: I thought I would tell you since you're a pretty cool guy. HSG is calling you "an irresponsible, unprofessional piece of shit." for having a life and visiting your girlfriend instead of releasing your album. What the fuck? haha
Anonymous asked: I worked really hard on my pics but I was having a hell of a lot of technical difficulties while sending it in so it's late by a few minutes. Please tell me that's ok. :'(

Anonymous asked: Would you consider making a post with honorable mentions for those that didn't win but were close?
Anonymous asked: Is there any chance you'll put up a mass post(s) after the contest ends or the album is released with the art entries? I think it would be fun to see all the different pictures people made.
Anonymous asked: Can we enter collab pieces for the contest?
Anonymous asked: If the odds wouldn't be increased, wouldn't we be wasting our time trying like how you said about the Nepeta entry? Why don't you just close the contest early? Like tonight instead of tomorrow night.. or w/e.
Anonymous asked: so you're not waiting till you get all entries to make a decision?
Anonymous asked: By any chance are you missing any characters that NEED more submission art for?
Anonymous asked: I remember a track called redboss somewhere around here, am I blind or have you taken it down? I really loved it.
Anonymous asked: Isn't it a bit presumptuous to just declare a winner and disregard potential future entries? I get that other characters need more attention, but it's just a bit insulting.
Anonymous asked: I love your tracks from AlterniaBound! I wanted to ask if you had any moments in the past when you felt like your track lacked something? I mean, I'm a beginner in arranging music, and I constantly feel that my arrangements are not quite as good as my original composition was. It's like instrument tracks sound good separately, but lack depth when played together. Have you ever had this...
track art heads up
I’ve already received a winning entry for Nepeta. You may not want to try for that character. There is no way I am going to change my mind on this one. Just a heads up. I’ve also received an overwhelmingly large amount of great entries in almost every other category, most prominently…. Feferi and the Condesce? Wow. EDIT: OH AND KARKAT, TOO MANY KARKATs.
perryymouse asked: Your remix of the Condesce theme is really great. Is there any chance you would ever develop it into a full track?
