**Official Composition Contest**(February) VOTE NOW!! (New one next wendsday the 14th!)
    #6595202 - 02/21/07 09:30 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

Poll was made on page 2 (http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php?Cat=0&Board=12&Number=6595202&page=0&fpart=2)  Go vote! 


*********************************************************************
Hello and welcome to the first official composition contest.:cool:  This is going to be the first of its kind in this part of the forum.  I love this section and perhaps this monthly competition might liven things up in here and help spread the love of music around.  Alright, enough new age talk.. Lets get started.

Rules and Contest guidelines:
*Contestants will be presented with a photo.  They have 1 week to record an original composition to express that photo by means of moving air molecules.  (music)  Any genre! 

*The little criteria for the actual composition is .MP3 file format and its recommend to keep the track shorter then 4 minutes.

*Submit your final MP3 to: XXXXX  It must be in before 11:59pm of the due date for it to be posted as a candidate for voting.  (When you email me your track,  please name it and write a brief description so I can post it next to your track.  Also site your username)

*The final vote will take place in this thread.  Once I upload all the tracks I will set up a poll.  A NOTE:  The order which will be listed is soley based on who sends in their tracks first.  If you get it done mid week.. send it in!  The people voting might become a bit hasher hearing the 5th down the list. (try and be the 1st or 2nd on the list)

*The winner is proclaimed composition champion of February 07.  The winner also gets to pick the next picture for next months Composition contest. (common sense guidelines when picking photos.  Nature, the city, human face, abstract art, any other kind of art, scenes... ect)

Thanks for reading and good luck composing. :smile::thumbup:

yeah, thats part of the challenge.  Everyone has one week to come up with something.  I've already received a final from someone. 

Peter Jackson decided to change composers very far into production on King Kong.  He contacted James Newton Howard.  James had literally a couple of weeks to create an original score for this whole movie. (and It came out awesome!)  So moral of the story:  Sometimes your rushed on time when writing a piece.  Its good to see where you stand on composing on the fly. :smile:

Doesn't sound like a monthly competition to me.
Sounds more like a weekly competition.

Alright. Let me explain:
A photo is posted the last week of the month. *read above how it works* You submit it at the end of that week. Votes goes down. then do it again the next month (last week of that month also)

I understand, I'm just messing around.

This is a really good idea by the way, I wish I could write music!

I'm no James Newton Howard and i'm not even close to being anywhere in any composer's league :tongue:

I'm gonna make this recording on an acoustic...that picture just doesn't call for shitloads of distortion me thinks.

:thumbup:  You can get creative and try putting somthing together without instruments.  A little soundscape type thing.  (if you have any kind of recording gear)
