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!
You need to be a member of Composers' Forum to add comments!
Well, Thanks. May I invite any other composer?

I have water half written. I've done some one minute pieces that have been carried out by folks who are producing the 60x60 thing. It's funny to have a "concert" all over Europe, but it's a minute piece. OH my, I HAVE and Earth piece, although it's done in sound collage.! Not 2 minutes, how ever. Maybe I could condense? Is that legal?
Here is the right place. Thank you for inviting me. I am choosing water first.
