SGL Week 4 Winners Announcement!

in sgl •  4 months ago 

Hello and welcome to SGL, this week we're celebrating our one month birthday! That's right it's been a month already, not to mention the couple of months behind planning the creation of SGL.

This week has been another amazing one, with some truly kick ass entries making the lives of our judges a little hectic. I will mention that @krystle and @isaria's (reviews coming) post's were a little late, both had selections in through the app the judges use in time.

We are thinking given how crazy life can get, we will do announcements in the discord. But as everyone already knows how we select our winners, you may realise this week we had a tie break situation. Our very first in fact, so as per our rules we had @swelker101 break the tie, but this is contributed to why things are running a little behind.

This also means that for the first time, people can't just figure out who placed where from the judges results alone. So starting next week we will use the SGL discord to announce the open and close of entries and judging, plus we will also announce the winners when they are tallied. This really is a massive reason for joining our discord, but it really has many functions for the contest and we also have random SONIC giveaways, planned contest, events and loads more!

Without further delay's here are our winners for week 4 of SGL:

@zipporah

"Absolutely lovely, Willins! I'm certain those delightful 'doomdoomdahhs' will be repeating in my head for the next few days. :) Extra points for creativity with your filming/setting – love it!"

@joseacabrerav

"An original song by the artist Wilins, Human Being #Venezolano who is now in # Spain, is through the music we make ourselves heard as humanity he feels.

Wilins has the message of his soul in his voice, a tool he uses to express feelings without any hesitation, thus demonstrating his spiritual work of self-confidence, thanks for being a great creator of original music with essence!"

@krystle

"Wilins you just never cease to amaze me man, you have just the most emotive voice ever. Always dripping with the emotion of the moment, epic and so impactful it really is the staple of a classic brilliant Wilins entry!

Your playing as always is just impeccable, you have also chosen a stunning location for your entry. I love the birds adding even more to this entry, just absolutely stunning <3

A sad beautiful song, with an almost hopeful tone though with an acceptance of the situation. Which is why the birds chirping adds so much to this, even if unintended - their song makes it feel that even though the meaning is sad, life continues on round and round we go.

Just another brilliant example of your amazing musicianship, you really never fail to impress and I just love your music so I of course cannot wait for more my friend and soon!"

@pechichemena

''Andrea made it again on my list this week , she has this mystic touch in every song she covers .. I think this particular song might be something that would catch the attention of @yidneth ;) ''

@zipporah

''Your voice is so pristine and mesmerizing – I'm in love with the sound of your heart. <3''

@joseacabrerav

''Your vibe mades this a wonderful story to be heared, a well executed fairly land (:

I enjoy how you express yourself on camera, singing not only with a beautiful voice but with your face, although I do not like the editions that can be made in post production to a voice, your editions are creative and have to do with the effectiveness of the message, aspect that you achieved so outgoing with a love of post production and a performance with a lot of emotion from Fantasy.''

"Ohhhhh hell yeah! This is just freakin brilliant on every single level, you really just took it to a whole new level this week. Your voice is just so angelic and phenomenal, I am completely blown away!

Wow this is hard to think where to start, but I guess it's your overall tonality. Holy wow you have this amazing ability to make your voice seem almost ethereal, it's absolutely stunning. You have a rather remarkable vocal range, displaying a massive range of notes - with some truly breathtaking moments of crushing power.

It is obvious you have some sublime vocal power there, but its how you choose to use it and when. Creating this elaborate intricate wave of emotion, capturing the essence of the song beautifully. I can close my eyes and I am immediately taken away to another world, filled with terrifying beauty.

Its such a beautiful song, I had not heard it before or the poem by Yeats. But I have to say this is just epic I love songs that tell a story, even more when they are so unique and create such an amazing world for me to escape into.

I have to mention that fact that these are not the easiest of lyrics to sing, I noticed moments where you must be masterful with breath control. Another skill you demonstrated fantastic ability with, especially when I consider the fact you're sitting down for your performance.

I also absolutely adore your accent <3 but it always amazes me how the accent completely disappears when singing, just a cute side note I've noticed with singers. You have an operatic quality to your voice, not only your range, control and power, but also technique and the combination of it all together."

3rd Place:

@betaniagmusic - Vida

Third Place Wins:

  • 50 Creative Coin
  • 75 Sonic Groove

@zipporah

"So much talent! I quite enjoyed the dynamic, unpredictability of your composition and your obvious, emotional connection to it. Impressive!"

@joseacabrerav

"The affection with which you express your work is worth gold, I encourage you to keep that creational spark and continue to bring wonders to the world <3 the execution of your instrument is very well accomplished and I know the work that the strings require to be sounded, they say that The worst sound in the world is a violin apprentice, you have invested long hours in your growth through the instrument, continue like this and you will see its fruits one day <3"

"Ohhhh wow.... This was just epic in every sense, stunning playing, brilliant composition, it all just fell perfectly into place in the most amazing way.

Firstly.. dam that was a truly bloody phenomenal composition! You have created something with so much depth and creativity, so many layers, textures, moments and feelings, what an incredible achievement. With such an amazingly brilliant result, I was completely and utterly blown away by this entry.

I am a little stunned at your amazing skill level, especially when you consider your age.... I am only guessing here but I have no idea how someone as young as you is skilled enough to not only play, but compose a piece of music such as this... just amazing!

Now I want to focus on your composition at first, because it really deserves the attention. You ease into the first note and it builds from this instance, you create a flowing moving canvas painting as you go. There is an amazing feel of flow throughout, one moment drawing into the next and compounding upon it.

You have incorporated fantastic tempo changes throughout, using them to enhance the emotion and feeling of the moment. There is a feeling I get when listening where I am swept up in the music, I can feel intrinsically where it is going and how each moment will enhance the one before."

Awesome! Congrats to everyone and thanks to the judges. 💛

I love this platform very much and the ways in which, with the best of passions, we find spaces to celebrate music and cultural diversity. I feel very happy ... the recognition is pleasant but, above all, I love that we can listen to each other. May we be a community of people who suffer and vibrate on the same frequency. Thank you!

This is my son! Proud mother!
