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!

I tried, for the analog recording I have created some interesting instruments, currently I have only the midi renderings. Please send me an email address and I will respond promptly.  It is prepared but I need to hassle with my zoom and some contact mics, attached to a wooden plate with Bambus tubes, when touched with some of my castanets that sounds great. Also I have something we call becken, when rubbed in a certain fashion also rhythmic patterns occure. Please give me a chance.  For this piece I have done my very best.  On the recording side I will give my best.  Sincerely 藻留天
