Just a quick thought, but I feel like if I'm judging a piece of music in the classical section then im going to judge it as CLASSICAL. I dont get why people get angry when I judge their techno piece as classical when theyve clearly placed it in the classical section. Same with any other sections, if I'm in the classic rock section then Im sure as hell going to judge it as classical rock. I do believe the meaning of each genre have combined into one gargantuan genre called newgrounds, but thats no excuse to just accept it as an inevitability.
So is it just me or has the "classical" section in the audio portal become more of a soundtrack section?? And im not saying some soundtrack isnt classical but anything thats instrumental does not make it classical! Ive posted instrumental songs in the pop section many times because a genre can be instrumental without being classical. The music at the top of the classical list (in scores) is good, but i dont feel a classical sense to it. I feel like classical has become "instrumental". There is a HUGE HUGE difference between modern classical and soundtrack. And there is definitely a bigger difference between classical and instrumental rock or instrumental pop. I just dont like what im seeing. Everthing at the top of the list literally sounds the same. Never do i see a "concerto" posted. Never do I see a score for a concert band, or even a traditional orchestra. Everythings got to have a special sound to it or its bumped to the bottom instantly. The classical stuff isnt even the stuff that makes it into the top classical! What kind of craziness is that?! its insane is what it is.
