I have been working with another composer on this site, who has supplied 5 melodic ideas for a potential contest I'd like to run. Please see attached pdf and mp3. Each contains the 5 melodies. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to pick one of the melodies and 1) provide an accompaniment for it. 2) provide between 2-4 variations on it. Even though the PDF score indicates particular instruments being used, you may use any instrumentation you like. There are no restrictions on the contest other than that the original presentation of the melody must be as the composer has provided. Voting will be twofold: the membership of this site will be asked to vote on which entry is the best, and in addition, the composer will sound off on which pieces they like most, and offer commentary.
