You know the drill. We’ll do community voting in the same way we’ve done the last one. I’m increasing the prize pool a little because there are too many great compositions that are slipping  by and distributing the money a little more differently. The prize pool will increase to $250. The community will choose two winners, 1st of which gets $75 and 2nd which gets $50, and I will choose one winner which gets $75, and then a second place choice who will get $50.

Composition Challenge #7


Welcome back to the key of a minor. First section is a very simple i-v with E octave pedal tones. Eventually the v becomes a V, with the final section being FM7, em7, d9, CM7.c


All submissions must be submitted no later than midnight, EST, on July 30th, 2015.

Submissions should be posted to the reddit thread linked above where it says “Discuss this on reddit” in the following format:

Name submitter wishes to go by: [name]

Name of and link to piece: [name of piece, with link]

The name doesn’t necessarily have to be the same one you use on reddit/soundcloud, though using a consistent name helps for branding. The piece should be downloadable to the public.


Judging will take place at 1500, EST, on August 1st 2015.

As a reminder, you grant me a non-exclusive license to use any music submitted to this challenge for my Twitch, Youtube and future tournament series. I will not and cannot DMCA any piece of music you ever submit to this contest, whether you or another person posts or uses it. You still retain 100% of the original rights to the songs and you can revoke my permission to use your submissions at any time with no notice.

Good luck!
