Congratulations to Mychael Danna for winning in the Best Original Score category this year for his work in Life of Pi. Now that all that award-winnin' business is over, what were your favorite soundtracks from 2012? Nominated or not?
Welcome the new music group, :icon365daysofmusic:

As its founder, :iconnichrysalis: explained to me, the group's mission is, starting in June, a daily journal about independent musicians, encompassing great varieties of music styles and genres. The group also allows the active promotion of artists on deviantART, so it's an opportunity to get your name out, and also allows self-submitted work by musicians to the group itself.

The group is looking for a bit of momentum and initial popularity so more music artists can get in line for future journal posts by the group. To me, that sounds pretty awesome. Daily promotion and music? Sounds like a deal!

Show some love, guys! This can be pretty neat.
:iconkcjones88: and :iconskylight22: are looking for help with their Sonic/Transformers crossover series, and are looking for some assistance in the sound design area. If any of you guys are looking to delve into others areas of audio  production, then this could serve as a pretty good gateway into that area.

I know sound design isn't the main focus of this group, but this can help some of you guys broaden your horizons if you wanted to.

Message :iconskylight22: or :iconkcjones88: if you are interested.
This is not music-related, however I feel it is important.

Emily Kim ( :iconmformusic323: ) is raising money to help Invisible Children, which aims to prevent Joseph Kony, a leader of the Lord's Resistance Army operating Uganda, from kidnapping innocent children and coercively enlisting them to fight his war.

Donations to Invisible Children will go  to building radio towers. These radio towers will enable quick, long-distance communicate with others to dispatch help or aid to certain parts of Uganda. With this, the LRA's attempts at forcible recruitment can be effectively foiled.

I strongly oppose any kid of oppression or compulsion, anywhere at any time, government-issued or not. I shudder to think that kids not one or two years older than some of my young cousins are given a gun or a knife, and taught to "love the gun" and "kill with a knife."

If you want more information, visit this site: www.invisiblechildren.com/
If you wish to donate, visit Emily's donation page: www.stayclassy.org/fundraise/i…

If you don't feel you can donate, please spread the word. It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
