Composers' Forum

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!

What are next steps?

Hi Robert, friend me on this site and I will accept and send directions

Sounds good.  Not sure which element I will compose for, yet.  I'll have to give that some consideration.

Thanks Charley! We now have 66 entrants, with 16 commits to Water, 9 commits to Earth, 11 commits to Fire, 9 commits to Air, and the rest general commits. The commits can be changed at any time.

Crikey Gav, I'm gonna have to put time aside for some conscientious voting with this....:-)

Gav, the enthusiasm is snowballing!  You have tapped a nerve. Good for you.

Points of clarification; How many submissions are permitted per entrant?

                                   Can more than one element be used/exhibited in a work?

                                   My 'vote'(opinion) is one element per entry.

                                   If I have to take time off from work to review and judge, will

                                   the Forum compensate me for my time? lol (just kidding)

ps- where have you all been for the past 4 years?   Welcome aboard.      RS

geez, the field is saturated … but i'll jump in w 'fire'

Yes, a lot of time. I'll divide the voting up to a per-element basis, so voters can knock off one element at a time

                                   Can more than one element be used/exhibited in a work? prefer to keep separate

                                   My 'vote'(opinion) is one element per entry. agree
