Represent A Country [Contest] 2009-02-01 12:49:12
I thought it would be cool if there was a contest where people would create pieces based on countries. Basically all you'd have to do is use instruments, melodies, or lyrics to represent a country of your choice, it's pretty simple.
For example, if you wanted to represent Japan you could use a Taiko drum and maybe mention something about Manga.
You could even go deeper and use the tonality of the music to represent the history of your chosen country.
Basically it's all up to you, I'll go through the rules.
#1 Your song must be between 1:50 to 3:00 any songs submitted to the contest over or under those limits will be disqualified.
#2 Your song can be of any genre whether it's Trance, Hip-hop or Rock etc.
#3 The Deadline is the 15th of February.
#4 Only one Person can represent each country, so make sure you state which country you want to represent before going of and making your track.
#5 Judges will not judge the songs until after the deadline, you can submit your piece whenever you want, you can also edit it as much as possible until the deadline.
I will help Judge the pieces, I'm also looking for 3 other Judges to help out (this number may increase depending on the amount of entries we get). If you wnat to Judge this contest be sure to send me a PM.
The judges will be given a mark scheme, you will be able to score a total of 20 Points.
I want this to be a fun contest, hopefully we'll get some really good pieces out of this too!
