Composing Short Pieces Using A Theme By Danjtitchener

Just the theme?  Exactly 16 bars?  No harmonization of the theme?  Elaborate a bit as to what you have in mind, I'm trying to picture how to write something satisfying that's that short.  Or would you just write as normal, introduce your theme, and have to stop dead after 16 bars, the winner being the person everyone most wanted to keep going.  (:

Harmonise! Harmonise! 

Exactly that, we could write as normal, then stop at 16 or so bars perhaps :)

Hey, I just thought: I don't we change this challenge a little bit? Instead of choosing one single theme for everybody to compose (and the choosen one does nothig but wait), we could just rearrange the themes and the composers in such a way that everyone will have a theme from another person and everyone would have his/her own theme being recomposed by someone else :D What do you think?

Oh well I called Danish's theme mainly as a joke (although of the themes presented thus far his seems the most friendly to me so I do in fact hope to get it) but I don't know exactly how everyone wants to decide it. Perhaps we'll play "Rock, Paper, Scissors" in the shout box :P

 

Or something more practical.

 

I'm not sure how we should do this actually... We can't very well assign them randomly as most methods of doing so are impractical if not impossible via the internet. Unless someone has some genius method of which I am unaware. I suppose we can tackle that problem while we wait for Austenite's theme.

Yeah I figured you weren't serious about calling "dibs" or anything like that...but it did suddenly dawn on me that we have a bunch of themes and no practical way of making sure there's a parity between themes. While I'm not actively opposed to picking them ourselves I think there were ways (mostly involving randomizers) to make sure no theme gets left behind, so to speak. On the more technical side, if there's an odd number of themes we wouldn't even be able to swap them between two people...which moves me to the idea of random sorting. Or maybe everyone just takes the submission done before/after them?

That last idea seems the best to me. If we all take the theme that came after ours, that would be a pretty fair way to handle it. We'll have to wait until we're sure that everyone who is going to participate has submitted their theme, of course. So far I think that just means we're waiting for Austenite. Unless someone else posts to the thread stating their desire to participate, we could just assume that Austenite will be the last one and begin as soon as he has submitted his theme.

 

How does everyone else feel about this? Any objections?

I'm with whatever you guys decide. I also think we, the participants, should refrain from commenting on each other's themes until the end, so we don't create a bias environment (yes some of have commented on one of those themes already...but whatever).

We could have one person use the random name selector and put the results in the thread. https://www.teachstarter.com/random-name-selector/ i'm not exactly sure how it would work but i'm just throwing around ideas.
