April Tune Contest: Waltzes
« on: 31 Mar 2014, 23:02 »
Hey everybody,

This is new for me so please let me know if I'm setting this up wrong.  I was really impressed with Emont's idea last month to come up with a steampunk western tune.  It reminded me of an idea I've wanted to do for a while: steampunk Vienna waltz.  In order to keep things open, I'd like to make this month's competition waltz's generically.  So if you want to take a stab at fusing actual Victorian era waltzes with the steam punk style or do a new take on the jazz waltz or ...well anything waltzy but a little different, give it a shot.

Lets make the deadline April 26th.

Happy writing!

Last year I proposed the same thing and people were also scared ;)

If you extend this to the end of the month, I may be able to contribute.  I've been reluctant to participate in the last few contests since I felt my music wasn't appreciated among the other talents here, but I'd hate to see a contest go by with no entries.  Also, I actually love to write variations on waltzes.

Sadly, I was still unable to create an appropriate entry.  Nice topic, though.  Too bad you didn't have any response.

I'm sorry guys.  I really thought that would be a fun one.  So what happens now?

I propose that you create a new topic for May. Unless there are better suggestions?

I agree with this.  Try another topic.  I should have time to participate this time, since my schedule is clearing up.

I'll share this brief (and slightly discordant) intro to a fake radio show out of competition, and look forward to the new topic!

Eric, that is an awesome tune!  ...very melancholy and clearly caught the ocean vibe too.
