Music can be experienced by our mind, but also by our body.

The challenge

In this challenge, we invite you to choose a genre you really like and compose a song that will make us all want to dance.

You have to come up with a short scene of a party and imagine the different characters there. You will assign an instrument to each character in your scene to be represented in your score. Don't forget to add this information in the description of your score 😉

Example

Scene:


At a Latin music party, there were many people dancing. But one couple caught my attention. Lola and Robert were dancing in a very romantic way. Everyone stopped to watch them because it was so beautiful the way they moved.

Main characters to be represented in the score:

Lola = The saxophone

Robert = The bass

You can make the scene as complex and create as many characters as you want. Also, not all the instruments have to be linked a specific character.

Instructions

  • Must be an original song specially created for this challenge. An arrangement will not be considered.
  • Collaborations are not allowed.
  • Using the drums or percussion instruments is a must!
  • You can only submit one score.
  • The duration of the song must be between 1 to 3 minutes. Scores longer than 3 minutes will not be considered.
  • External audio sources can be used (it will not influence the results).
  • Deadline: 23d November. No late submissions!

Update on the way we choose the winner!

I have been talking with the community on our Discord server to find the best way to choose the winner. You had some amazing ideas, thank you!

Previously, a person who won a challenge would not be considered to win again. The idea behind this was to give others a chance to get the prize and the attention. The challenges are meant to inspire you to create and have fun, not to generate a sense of competition in the community.

Now previous winners will be considered to win in all the challenges!

If you win more than once during the period of the yearly subscription you won, the prize will be applied as follows:

  • You can give away the yearly subscription to a person who does not have a premium subscription yet of your choice.
  • If you decide to keep the prize for yourself, we will add one extra month to the annual subscription you already won, and the second place will be awarded the annual subscription prize.
