CCC#1 - "The Watzmann" and Admin/Judge

The wait is over! The first competition is here!

That didn't take long! Thank you to everyone who has joined the group in the last 24 hours or so. :D

So, I have a couple of things to talk about, the first is announcing the competition, the second is regarding Admins and Judges etc, so I want to quickly apologise for the lengthy post.

But let's start with the fun bit!

CCC#1 - "The Watzmann" by Caspar David Friedrich.

"The Watzmann" is a painting by artist Caspar David Friedrich, made in the mid 1820s. It is a fantastic landscape painting, and although I know nothing about art, I absolutely love this painting.

This challenge was inspired by a composition task I was given at school, where we had to write a piece of music inspired by a painting. I chose a different painting by Caspar David Friedrich, which inspired me to look up some more of his art to use for this competition.

So, the challenge is fairly simple: Write a piece of music inspired by this painting, "The Watzmann". I look forward to seeing what you can come up with.

A few quick rules/details:
1) You may use any ensemble of instruments.
2) The piece must be between 1.30 and 5 minutes long.
3)  The piece must be original, not an arrangement.

You will be given a mark out of 10 for your piece, along with some feedback. You have until Sunday 19th May which gives you one month to complete the piece. I will announce the winners as soon as possible after that.



Admin / Judge

So, basically, if anyone would like to be an admin and judge in the competition, please message me. Your job will be to help me mark the scores, and make sure the group runs smoothly. Obviously, you won't be able to participate in any competitions which you help judge, so sorry about that. If no-one wants to, I can do it myself, but it would make things a lot easier for me, so message if you're willing to help. Thanks!

Conclusion

There. I apologise again for the long post. I'd never get away with this on RSA. :/
Thanks again to everyone who helped boost this group to 30 members yesterday. :D
I look forward to seeing all of your entries to the competition. Obviously you don't have to, but if you are entering, it would be helpful if you could just let me know in the comments. Have fun!

CCC#1 - "The Watzmann" - Update (1 week extension)

So a couple of people have asked for an extension for the first competition, and as we've only had a few of entries, I've decided to give you 1 week to complete your compositions. The one's we've had so far have been excellent, so keep 'em coming!

You now have until Saturday 25th May to complete your compositions. This is an extra 6 days, so be grateful. ;D

I will announce the winners on either Saturday on Sunday, depending on how long it takes me to mark them all. Well done to everyone who's entered so far!

Welcome to Undertale Music!

Welcome to the Undertale Music group! I am the new owner of this group, and we're going to be clarifying a couple rules of the group.

First of all, any music that is not from Undertale, Deltarune, or any other Undertale AU will be deleted. When the previous mods became inactive, many songs that were in no way related to Undertale were posted. This will be ending, so please save us the trouble and don't post a song on here if it isn't related to Undertale.

Second, there's been a problem with a lot of duplicate discussions, and it's to the point that we have more than 10 "favorite songs" discussions, multiple character discussions, and I don't even know how many AU discussions there are. So please, it would be appreciated if you could quickly check to see if the discussion you wanted to make was already posted before creating a discussion. Self promotion will not be tolerated, and you will be given a warning along with your discussion being deleted.

And finally, please keep conversations appropriate. Please do not be a cringy Undertale fan. There's a lot of bad rep for Undertale because of the fandom, which is awful. The game Undertale is amazing, but the fandom ruins it for everyone. Be considerate of everyone, and please, please, please, don't create any trouble.

Failure to comply to these rules will result in further action.

Anyways, now that I'm done sounding all stuck up and stuff, I hope that all of you will obey the rules, and have fun talking about Undertale here!
