Music Composers Unite!

Contest: THE 4 ELEMENTS: DEADLINE TO SUBMIT ENTRIES HAS PASSED, CONTEST CLOSED, VOTING TO BEGIN SOON!!

Hi Composers’ Forum members, as you know, the 4 elements are earth, air, fire, and water. For this proposed contest, you will write a piece of music of no more than 2 minutes duration based on one of these elements. Any instrumentation, any style of music. If the contest is a go, I will give 3 months for interested composers to submit their entries to me, which I will then put up anonymously. Voting will be by the membership of this site. You can submit entries for more than one element. An MP3 or link to a soundcloud/youtube/etc will be necessary. A PDF of the score is highly desirable, but not required. In order for this contest to be a go, 10 composers need to express interest by Sunday, Jan. 21 at 5 pm EST. To express interest, reply to this thread or send me a message. Please indicate in your expression of interest what element or elements you think you might want to compose for (you can change this later). Please note that I do not need any music at this time, just an expression of interest. I have run these contests before, they are a lot of fun and a good way to get feedback about your music from your peers, hope you can join us!

Hello all,

HOW VOTING WILL PROCEED - Voting will be by the members of this site. Each voter will be asked to select their #1, #2, and #3 entries for each element. For each #1 vote, I will give the entrant 3 points, for each #2 vote, 2 points, and for each #3 vote, 1 point. Whoever has the most points wins! The voting will be separated out by element, so there will be a total of 4 winners, 1st, and 2nd place finishers. There will be about 2 weeks allowed for the vote. While the voting is going on, entrants are asked not to publicize their pieces anywhere on this site. Element Count: Earth - 7, Air - 6, Fire - 3, Water - 9. Deadline for entrants to submit their entry is 4/21/18 at 5 pm EST. Questions? ask them here>
