Challenge: Transcription Game Number One


Recommended Posts

Hey guys! Here's your first transcription challenge:

Please transcribe the first minute and five seconds (until the first chorus) for Piano and voice.

PLEASE: DO NOT LOOK UP ANSWERS ON THE INTERNET. YOU WILL RUIN THE CHALLENGE.

Hint: Begin with the voice to figure out the time sigs.

Hint: The time signatures CHANGE OFTEN. And, you will be graded on how closely you interpret them. There are actually multiple answers, I think.

Hint: Don't worry about the Japanese lyrics.

Hint: It's hard. ;)

The Prize: I will record a cover of any song you want if it's in my range. It can be an original. It can be "cover" by somebody else. But, I will not do Death metal or anything like that. I'm ok with pop. And, yes, you can make me sing something stupid. OR, you can be serious about it and let me sing something you wrote. I'm a Baritone with a low G and a High G.

SUBMISSIONS: SEND A PDF OR MUS SCORE TO CONNORLIDELL@GMAIL.COM. SUBJECT TITLE: "Transcription Contest - (Last name)"

Yeah?

Cool.

Go.

TIME LIMIT: ONE MONTH: November 18th, 2012.

Maybe he can be a real douche and slap those bragging rights straight in his signature.

Note to self: if you're a composer, you never, ever, dare to mention your own works at all. You simply don't talk about your achievements, no matter how unimportant or unsignificant they are. Composers are supposed to be totally ashamed of their own music - especially if it's been described, with varying degrees of accuracy, as "random nonsense with some pseudo-scientific explanation", "music that sounds like farm animals dying of constipation and bloating", or a strong candidate to win nothing but a "mongols farting contest".

"...it was building up into an interesting sequence of daring harmonies."

- Austenite, Liache

"This seems to be a more traditionally-crafted work indeed, and I must add, a very enjoyable one...just wanted you to know that I appreciated this work."

- Austenite, Kyrie

Heh, and you went on to say I didn't comment or show any appreciation for your work despite our stylistical opposition (which is too much more than I can say of you) ;). If you want to talk about being a real douche...

DV, but that is because I was scared of you... ;)

aka. "political correctness" :laugh: .

There's a difference between 'talking' about your music and by default, thrusting it into the faces of others every time you say something on this site.

If you're really bothered by it you might as well exercise your right to ignore it. But it's pretty clear you're just looking for an excuse.

Who says I'm bothered by it? I think it's cute: not unlike how my 5 year-old nephew will proudly showcase his crayola drawings of dinosaurs and robots and things every time I visit him, many adorned with "3rd place" and "participation" ribbons from competing in art contests and such for youngsters.

The fact that you simply can't stop complaining. And the fact that you don't hesitate to showcase your ability to contradict yourself, as long as you achieve your supreme ambition of being nothing but bothersome and annoying.
