So like cyclical motif...

I guess that has merit but can I stick with 1 piece? I won't have time for 2 and I'd like to try "making the most of it" in that one piece.


You can write one piece if you want.

My musescore doesn't have a Bratsche or a Geige, So I'm using a violin and a viola.

I know you're only joking, but for reference, if you right click the first bar then go to stave properties you can change both the instrument name and the shorthand.

We're all writing our own pieces. Is the first post no clear enough? Everybody knows what we're doing right?

I thought we were working from a common melody though...

IRL people say I'm awful at explaining myself. Seems I am in the virtual world as well.
I thought we decided it didn't matter if we were working from the same melody because it would be difficult to decide on a melody for everybody and everybody would have to write two pieces anyway. I was thinking this challenge would be a good way to practice getting rid of writers block because it's about taking something you wrote and seeing a different direction you could take it. I often write four bars of something and get stuck, so I was trying to fix that with this exercise.
I was thinking about some challenges in the future that would be based on a common motive like "A melody with the range of a b5 that eventually resolves out to a M6" or a mood like "Everything seems, fine but not quite." I mostly want to keep this challenge as is because I already have four pieces on the burner for it. If I picked a motive I'd have to start all over. I hope everybody wasn't waiting for me to pick a motive because I'm so obtuse. If they have been it seems my first challenge failed pretty hard. :/

Create a theme. Write 2 songs based of that theme. That's it right?

I'd love to join! I have to compose a piece for my finals at school, so this is a great way to do it I think

But I've never done anything like this before, do we submit a score? or sound clip? or just keep it to ourselves? o.O

Submit the sound and the score. The deadline is August 17th.

I assumed that the following transformation of the theme from 4/4 to 3/4 would be acceptable, the basic contour and rhythmic outline is pretty much intact. Since everyone seems pretty vague on what exactly it is we're doing here I thought I'd check.

I don't know if I'll have everything done on time. I was sick last week, and the week before that was the performance week of a rock camp, and we've been camping for the last three weekends...so those are some excuses I'll be using if I'm late for my own thread. Who knows, I might get everything done in two days...

Ok so I've started writing my first piece.

Xiaoxi, how long would it take to create a semi-decent sounding mockup of a score if I sent you the MIDI file? No worries if you wouldn't have time/want to do it, would just be nice to hear my music not with sibelius sounds

I have made the executive thread-starter decision to extend the deadline to the 24th.
That should give all of us enough time to finish everything.

Sorry to everyone who didn't procrastinate and finished on time. You're better than me.
