HORNET Music Contest 6 [MC6] - Veteran Top Ten (1998) - 10th Anniversary
[PLAY WITH WINAMP!]
10 years later...
This is my homage to all of those who were involved with MC6 and the scene back in the day,
because I don't want these good memories to fade away.
All I did was compile the top 10 songs in the Veteran Division,
and also included are the Judges' Reviews.
Remember that this was back in 1998 and this music was completely made with trackers.

"Hornet held an annual tracker music competition every year from 1994 to 1998, simply called Music Contest.
Only MOD, S3M, XM, and IT module files were accepted. Snowman started the competition in 1993 on a BBS,
before he joined Hornet, for those in the scene who could not attend the scarce number of demo parties at the time.
By Music Contest 3 in 1995, the competition had become fully Internet-based and fully supported by Hornet,
with an invitation intro and results pack. MC2 split the contest into rookie and veteran divisions,
and MC5 introduced a third intermediate division. The contest's popularity grew from its reputation as a fair,
complete competition, with scores broken down by originality, form, technicality, and samples.
Experienced tracker musicians were recruited as judges, and gave written feedback on every entry.
Modest prizes were given to the top winners.
Music Contest 6 had 385 entries, from all over the world, nearly evenly split among the three skill divisions."
