Bozza - En Foret BACKING TRACK

Hey guys! Just taking advantage of the new unlimited score upload feature and decided to upload this piano backing track for Eugene Bozza's "En Foret." THIS IS NOT A CLEAN, LEGIBLE SCORE; this is meant to be played in the background of your solo if you are unable to find an accompanist (which is exactly the situation I found myself in 3 years ago when I made this). Let me know if it comes in handy for any of you! Feel free to mess around with the tempos in order to fit your personal musical expression in the piece.

Composing Playoff Contest

A composing playoff is a contest with 3 rounds (sometimes more depending on how many people enter on the first round). The first round anyone can enter their pieces in. When at least 5 people enter the contest, a few members (selected by me) will judge the top 3 winners. In the 2nd round, the top 3 will then compose another piece for the round. Then the same judges will judge the top 2. Then in the 3rd round (the final round), the last 2 winning contestants will compose yet another piece. Then the judges will judge the 1 winner of the round. The judges will vote on the reward for the winner.

Troubleshooting sax reed positioning

I need some help solving a problem I have with my bari sax. Sometimes it plays just fine, sometimes it takes a LOT of air to get it to make a sound. I've deduced that my reed is the cause of the problem, predictably, but I'm not sure how.

Today, for example, it was playing perfectly for roughly the hour I was practicing. Then I started to hear my spit buzzing in the instrument, so I took off the reed, wiped off the excess spit, wet it again for good measure, and put it back on. Now, no matter how I move or readjust the reed, it just won't make a noise unless I put a great deal of air through the instrument. I have adjusted the position and tightness of the ligature, the position of the reed, and my embouchure, but nothing is fixing it. Any suggestions on what the problem could be?

Thanks!

20th January Musical Cryptogram

My friends sometimes ask me to translate his or her name into a musical composition. I must confess that I love these activities as it forces you to make a melodic line out of it. So my challenge is:

Make a piece of music out of a name (can be anyone's)
Pieces should be longer than one minute and less than 3 minutes.
If those who are confused in how to use cryptograms then here is one way you could do this (French method):
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musical_cryptogram

I would judge your pieces based on originality, how beautiful it is and bonus if difficult names are used. 
Please in your titles that you need to state the name of the person
The winner will have their piece upvoted and will be followed by me.

Here is an example where the piece uses a musical cryptogram:
