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

hehe I totally know what you mean though.  You got a final already?! damn.

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

So how's the voting going to work?

I'm just wondering if people will be voting on the best correlation to the picture or in the end, just voting for what sounded the best to them/the coolest?

I hope people vote by the first choice, because after all, it's what this contest is about.

Voters will be encouraged to pick the piece that best represents their own feelings for the posted picture.

And on another note, I just finished my track so I'm going to go download all the other tracks you guys sent to me and I'll make sure every things working.

Awesome, got your song done hey? :cool: 

Well that's good.  I'm hoping people understand, this contest isn't about which piece sounds the best on it's own.  It's about which one best suits the picture, the way they interpet the picture of course.

I could even find me coming close to voting for something that sounds totally awesome, without thinking much about the picture.  To combat this, I'm going to make sure I have the picture open right in front of my eyes when listening to all samples :smile:

yeah, I tested all the files and every things working great.  A question, Can anyone upload these MP3's on a website so we don't have to use yousendit or something really inconvenient like that?  If so, please let me know.  Its only about 15mb worth of files.  Please PM me if you can host and I can send the batch of MP3's. :smile:

couldn't wait:smirk:

after listening to all compositions while viewing the picture my vote is on entityexperiment, very nice pure acoustiguitar recording:thumbup:
what effect did you use, it sounds like some panning effect, maybe a little stereo chorus and some reverb?

others were very good too, but this one in combination with the picture was best for me

wow... just listened to all of them, and it wasn't tought deciding who's song fit the most (IMO of course), but if there was no picture it would be very hard to decide.

This is a really good turnout as well as much more effort put into these than I would have thought for the "pilot" episode... especially compared to my entry  :rofl:
I cant wait for the next picture.

Toddo, did you not make an end date for the voting? Also, I wish there was a way to require 50 or so posts to vote.....

hey man, that's appreciated lots :thumbup: :smile:  I didn't think I even had a chance with some of the musicians on here.  I tried my best.  I really just let it flow and didn't think about it.  That was 2 takes.

You were bang on...besides the panning though(not sure how to do that yet).  Some light chorus and a tiny bit of reverb.  your ears picked up on that well. :thumbup:

Man, they were all so good.  Honestly, it's quite obvious my own playing relates to me the best, but honestly, I was almost going to vote for either Toddo or undercovercop...they both really set the mood for me.

This is a tough vote for people me thinks.  Very cool material from all musicians...good work! :thumbup:

First off let me say you all did a GREAT job and are all very talented. :cheers:

The one I thought fit the picture and that I could really vibe with the most was Gem in my eye by entity. It set me back into a nice tranquil state here in the wee hours of the morning. Very well done. :laugh:

Next time you (or whoever wins) should not list the names of the members. That way we know that no weight will be voted towards a certain member.

As for the pieces, besides my own (which relates to me the best, duh) I liked all of them, except one. I didn't feel as if that one really represented the picture at all.

I enjoyed toddo's the most. It really built suspense, and I liked though. All though I feel as if it was a little drug-out. I also liked the aucustic arrangement...I don't know the author right off.

Looking back on mine, if I could of changed anything, it would defiantly make it slower. But hell, In all reality molecules move fucking fast. lol.

But good job guys, I can't wait to do this next month. :cool:

Hey everyone.  Thanks to everyone who put the time into creating a piece.  I think my favorites were gem of my eye (very much had that happy new beginning feel.)  And I really liked the woodwinds... it had the new energy in the morning feel and it sounded like an old Zelda soundtrack. :smile:

Somethings I'm going to do next time:
-Set a freakin ending time to the poll. (that was my bad for not)  I planned on having the vote go on for a week.
-Post the tracks with out the user names

Great job everyone.  I'm already excited for next month.  :smile:

also put the poll in a thread outside of this thread.

i am actually shocked at the voting.....
1) thought there would be more voters.
2) I thought Toddo blew us all out of the water, especially when put in the context of the picture...... but I guess that is the purpose of voting....

So toddo, was that all your composition? or was it like an acid pro thing with different loops/tracks from different things.... or was it a hybrid of that?
I was thinking about composing a song in Finale, but I hate the MIDI sounds that came with it.... so idecided to keep it soundscape-ish.

you know, I had expected a really low voter turnout because it takes somewhat of an effort to go through the tracks. Its also in the middle of page2... I'll start a new thread for the poll next time.

Thanks for the kind words. Yeah, I don't blame you. I can't handle midi stock sounds. (The finale sound engine is pretty terrible)

I worked on my track in cubase, with most of it played off a huge orchestral library via midi & sampler. (EWQL-Symphonic Orchestra) I have an old analog organ in my room which I recorded digitally. I also put in some subtle sound FX's I recorded.

That finale sound library gives you somewhat of an idea of what your writing.. but if you want a presentable mock up.. you really need to invest in a decent orchestral library. (or download one)

its a bitch to get good turnouts in the music/lit/art section for posting replies and votes.  It's almost like it's just a novelty that it's here sometimes.  Anyhoo, rock on, and good job on all of the tracks :laugh:

Wonderful pieces guys!

I really liked Toddo's, but I ended up going with EntityExperiment's sweet guitar tune. Just the perfect bit of serenity for me...

I'm soo in next round.
And props to Toddo for a great idea!

So, when do we officially crown the victor and get on with next week, so I dont have to constantly hang my head in shame at my 0 votes? :lol:

Also..... Im not hating on the picture given, it was a great picture, that had a great duality to it.... was it sunrise.... or sunset? depended on how you felt about it. Most people went with sunrise it seems..... but I hope that every picture/topic isnt going to be a canyon on a sunny day, or a field of sunflowers.
Granted, it is up to the winner to decide, but lets all try to run the gamut (pun!) of emotions/experiences.

I agree completely.  I think this picture was GREAT to start the contest off with though.

I think people will have some cool pictures to show that will invoke all sorts of feelings. :thumbup:

I actually really enjoyed your track.  And yes, month to month.. the photo should be quite different from the old one.  The vote ends this Wednesday.

I like this idea but it is a music, art, AND Literature forum.

I think you should try with a verbal category (sunrise, sunset, forest, etc.) that way we can have music, art, and lit. entrys.

I would deff. enter if I could enter art work or photography.

Maybe not but you might be able to break it into 3 separate categories. That way art and music would be judged separately and if you weren't interested in the art category you could just skip of it.

but it's just an idea.

I was thinking something more along the lines of having the arts, music, and literature having seperate contests, but lets say that the song from the winner of the music contest is the topic for the art/photography contest, and the winner of that contest is the topic for the literature contest, and the winner of that contest is the topic for music...... etc...

or any combination... but that all might be too complicated to pull off and be popular enough for people to keep up with it and participate with entries and voting.

awesome idea.  I was thinking along the same lines when I was making this contest.  Linking all the forms into a contest.  Once this gets some more popularity we can add something else that links to the contest but is in a different art form.  As long as we take our time and let every contest grow in itself, I don't see we It wouldn't work.    We can have a different art formed contest every couple weeks.  :smile:

I'm ready to start another as well, though I won't get around to it until Tuesday(going to be out of town from friday-tuesday).  I'll look around for a photo...I'm going to go for something that could have many interpertations.  It'll most likely be some sort of abstract art or somethign maybe.

oh it'll be a defined picture for sure, but like I said, it'll probably be interpreted different by different people, which is what will make it so interesting.

Sort of the same as people thinking that it was a sunset or a sunrise on the last one, although this one might have a few other interpretations.

I found a couple I like.  Just deciding now.

Well, I want to thank everyone who voted for me.  :smile:  I felt totally outdone, so was actually very surprised.  It was something rather simple to play that I came up with just staring at the picture and letting go any thoughts in my mind.  It was so simplistic compared to the rest and like I say, I'm rather "wow'ed" at the fact I won.  So thank you very much everyone.

And everyone who put a piece in deserves big recognition.  They were all great and it goes to show how much talent we have on this board :thumbup:  I can't wait to see more names put a piece in this next time.

Good work everyone and can't wait until I get to hear this month's songs!
