BJSC CXVI: Nothing to see here



Our last offering we'll be able to gift to the BJSC masses before we give our feathers a breather in the contest for a while to deal with some unexpected political problems, but don't worry it's completely worth it, an all-star collaboration between the stars of the ricco label, a label speciailsing in Japanese cinematic post-rock/orchestral music, including long-time Terra Avium representatives, films making their main contest debut. It's a moving, desolate affair with strong percussion, building strings and wistful operatic vocals, it really pulls you in as you go along and the ending is breathtaking. Make this one do well guys, I'm relying on you xx And if you like this, do check out their other two simultaneous releases Missing and Unknown Error and the rest of the ricco label which also showcase the beautiful cinematic sound that can come out of Japan.

3 for 3 on the films songs being wonderful, this might actually be my favourite of the 3 heart.gif

I hope you'll only be missing the one contest after this!!

Will 2020 be the year I actually remember to keep this constantly updated? We'll see, but might as well start out right.

Quick update for 2019.

BJSC CXVII-CXX catch up
Indian bagpipe dubstep craziness as my BIG COMEBACK wasn't quite as hot as I expected to say the least and beautiful soul-pop ballad from an artist from my new favourite country of South Africa also didn't, but did kinda well considering. Thankfully, I got my dues from the always classic piano ballad sound in this beautiful number from Efisio Cross with a picture that will make any Game of Thrones fans cry. It finished 9th, giving me a second top 10 hit of the year, I would go into my EOY stats but we haven't them yet as our provider is slightly late ;-) Can't argue with a year with just one DNQ though, a new record from us.



BJSC Christmas: Jingle all the way to the top!
It was a rather good festive season for us this year as the Christmas spin-off returned and we took the opportunity to send serial Terra Avium artist, Two Steps From Hell, fresh off winning a main BJSC contest and coming 2nd for yours truly in BJSC YBO, this one continued that run of form by finishing 2nd again....before a deduction to the non-voting winner meant we won cheer.gif Our third spin-off win after Andra Chansen and Halloween II, so I guess it's something in the seasons. Christmas playlists are probably tucked away now but we'd highly recommend you add Christmas Medley to your playlists for next time as it's a gloriously epic take on your favourite carols.

BJSC TBO:
...is ongoing! Please vote La Phaze in TBO Semi 1, we very nearly got Everdream to this stage, a great feat seeing it's dismal original result, but it alas just missed out.

BJSC CXXI: Sing my Angel of Music
And that brings us to our current entry and first of the new decade! It's not often we opt for covers, but this one is a metal re-imagining of the classic original that fits wonderfully that adds a real fear and dread factor to the already sinister song, the last minute opera closer particularly you really get the sense that the phantom is forcing the vocals out of Christine perhaps even more so than the original and it's gripping to listen to. It's most surprising that it comes from two YouTubers (who also do many metal Disney covers and Google Translate songs) who are certainly rather talented going by this. Quite the surprise package ;o

Updating not going quite as well, but I'm back to it~



BJSC CXXII: Thinking Introspectively

We turned to our good old friend the piano instrumental last contest in a beautifully building and highly addictive electronic-tinged instrumental with a certain ~avant garde~ tone to it as the stunningly shot video filmed in Reykjavik, Iceland backs up with it's imagery. It's a thing of wonder though, and it gave us a very respectable 16th placing, a much better start to the year than the sad fate of the Phantom of the Opera last contest frustratingly missing out on qualifying by just a few points. It also won it's own battle in a rather rare occurence of there being two piano instrumentals in the final, with Persephonia sending the similarly haunting and avant-garde vibes of In Pursuit of Ghosts by Max Cooper and Tom Hodges. Sadly, this one didn't quite catch on as well, finished 30th.


And now this here contest



BJSC CXXIII: Azure approaching

For our mini landmark 80th entry, we send a song that is very much our thing. Fractal Dreamers have long been a favourite of the nation's music committee and have been making waves in external, underground contests with other entries for a while now so it was only a matter of time before they were entered to the main contest. A song just as epic as the images its title conjures up, it is a gloriously triumphant mix of orchestral classical music and drum'n'bass, electronic which moves at a breakneck pace towards a stunning crescendo. If you like this one, make sure to check them out on Bandcamp, their art style of music combined with modern electronic beats is really quite excellent and their EPs are all great listens.

Absolutely brilliant. Not quite on the level of Fortuna Redux but I'm fully behind this being a smash in the big fish. This *should* prompt me to check out more of their stuff really!
