Fall Competition Scenario Poll  

13 members have voted

This poll is closed to new votes
  1. 1. What should the Fall Competition Scenario be?

    • A marathon style event where competitors are given a list of compositional techniques they must use in order (like a field event), but the rest of the piece is their choice. Competitors are judged on integration and smoothness of the techniques.
      2
    • A time warp style event where competitors must compose a piece that transitions through the various eras of musical styles as the piece progresses. Competitors are judged on their ability to keep their own compositional styles and themes while shifting eras.
      7
    • An aleatoric-based event where competitors are assigned a an aleatoric (or chance based) requirement (i.e. using playing cards for pitches). Competitors are judged on how well the integrate the results of their given aleatoric requirement.

Option 2 sounds like an intensive project, which could take months to finish. Maybe it is better to set a specific time style period or 'progression' like:

Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romanticism, 20th century, contemporary.

I thought that you would have liked 'sub-styles' in the 20th century for example: impressionism, expressionism, neo-classicism, blues, jazz, rock, pop, avant garde etc.

Oh, I see. I thought of that. Trust me, if that's the most popular option, it's not going to be nearly as broad.

 

Okay, then the second option gets my vote. I don't know how to remove my vote for the aleatoric option.

Or a one-movement piece exploring at least three different styles at different points in the piece. Definitely done stuff like that before.

Kind of like that, but that sounds like an exercise rather than a piece.

I'm not suggesting an exercise at all, but there are definitely pieces that contain multiple styles.

I've seen this before and did a full analyzation of it as to how it was compositionally incorrect... it wasn't a huge list; it was pretty good. I don't have it anymore.
