Music transcends all logic and awakens strong emotions in us. For example, when we watch a scary movie, music is what triggers the terror we may feel.

The challenge

In this challenge, compose a song that gives us the creeps 😱! But this is not all, the song must be the soundtrack for this scene:


  • Must be an original song specially created for this challenge. An arrangement will not be considered.
  • Collaborations are not allowed this time.
  • You can only submit one score.
  • You can only use 4 instruments.
  • The duration of the song must match the duration of the scene.
  • External audio sources can be used (it will not influence the results).
  • If you have already won a challenge, you can submit your song, but you will not participate in the annual prize subscription, to give a chance to someone else.
  • Deadline: 25th October. No late submissions!
