Music Composers Unite!

Proposed Contest: “Emotion” - contestants sought - DEADLINE PASSED

Write a piece that tries to capture a single emotion, e.g. “happiness,” “sadness,” love.” Any instrumentation, any duration up to 5 minutes. An mp3 soundfile is required, or a link to an individual file on soundcloud or a website (mp3 strongly preferred, because most people can listen to that), and a pdf score strongly recommended. You would send me the music and I would post it anonymously for you. I will give about 2 months for you to compose. Judging will be by the members of this site (voting is also anonymous). If 10 composers express interest in the contest, it’s a go. You can express interest by replying to this thread or by PM’ing me. If we are not friends on this site already, send me a friend request and I will accept. If 10 composers express interest in this site by Monday Feb. 27 at 5 pm EST, the contest is a go.

I'm expressing interest.
Me too.

Thanks Rodney and Dave!

We now have two composers expressing interest, if eight more do so, the contest will be a go! Deadline to express interest is Monday Feb. 27 at 5 pm EST

I am in

Thanks Michael!

3 in, 7 to go to make the contest happen! Deadline to express interest is Monday Feb. 27 at 5 pm EST

I haven't been active in a while but, I'm sure if the contest is a go, I can whip up something for it in two months.

Thanks Blake!

4 in, 6 to go to make the contest happen! Deadline to express interest is Monday Feb. 27 at 5 pm EST

Bump!

And I'm also in, even though I'm not 100% sure I will be able to produce an entry by the deadline, due to increasingly busy schedule and other obligations.  But will try!  In any case, it will be good motivation to keep on composing, even if I don't make the deadline.

And for whoever else is reading this: participating in this contest is highly recommended. You won't get any monetary prizes, and you may not even produce a winning entry, but in my own experience these contests are very good motivation to beat composer's block, and hone your ability to compose to a subject not necessarily chosen by you, and within a specified deadline. At least for me, it has helped me grow a lot as a composer.  So sign up already. ;-)

Thanks H. S.! and special thanks #2 for your kind recommendation to others to join up. These contests are fun and a good way to get your music in front of your peers!

Gav. ( and fellow creative music lovers)  I am also interested in the contest,

altho I think that the 'emotion' of an individuals piece should not be pre-defined.

Leave that up to the respondants to qualify as an aspect of the voting.

Let's see if the composers intent is realized by the listeners without being

persuaded by a title that predetermines focus.   Just a thought :>!

Thanks Roger,

You are now the 6th person to express interest, so only 4 more are needed to make the contest a go.

I also am expressing interest.
