High School Composers Competition!

59 discussions • 167 scores • 196 members

Upload your best compositions to this group and as soon as we get enough scores, we'll judge them and declare a winner! :)

There are some rules that you must follow:

1. -- Keep ALL your scores and comments clean of all foul language, lewdness, or any kind of stuff that might be considered offensive. We want to keep this competition enjoyable for everyone involved.

2. -- Scores will be judged at the deadline set in the discussions.

3. -- Any composition style or instrumentation is accepted.

4. -- Only one score can be submitted per person, per competition! any additional scores will disqualify all! (so only one at a time!)

5. -- It is required that anyone posting scores to this group put HSCC #_ after the name of their submission. If you don't, the score will not be judged.

6. -- Please keep your score under 10 minutes. Any scores over 10 minutes will be penalized (there's a 30 seconds margain of error).

7. -- Last but most certainly not least, all scores should be original compositions. However, If an arrangement is submitted, the score will be judged, but it will not receive any musicality (the themes' quality category) points.

The scores will be judged by three full-time judges:
-- Robin M. Butler
-- Dun Ought
-- Alla Polacca
and one guest judge -- currently Dillweed12345.

Works are judged in three main categories:
1. -- the quality of work itself - total of 250 points:
50 points - quality of themes
50 points - themes' development
50 points - form of the work
50 points - originality
50 points - coloristics and instrumentation
2. -- the quality of score - total of 28 points:
10 points - legibility of score
8 points - rules of scores' editing
10 points - correct use of musical terms
3. -- engagement in listening to the work - 10 points.
Grand total is 288 points. After works get those points awarded, they are converted to percents, then the percent is removed and we have nice --/100 points.

There are also some penalties that may be charged:
1. -- if the work is longer than 10 minutes - 5 points
2. -- if some parts are unplayable - up to 250 (!) points
3. -- if the work doesn't follow the editions' requirements - 10 points.

The winner receives bragging rights only. (Though once/if we get going, there may be some prizes eventually.) ;P

This group's purpose is to share both compositions and arrangements to everyone who wants to give glory to God in their music. Worship music that you have created is most encouraged so that it may be used by others and bring people in to the presence of our Lord. Please start conversations about questions you have that others may have answers for. Remember, Jesus Christ gave his life up for us, now It is our turn to give our lives to him. -Galatians 2:20-

Modernist Composers

19 discussions • 1.3K scores • 189 members

Feel free to post music here!

Hello everyone! This is the page for composers who compose in a style that branches out of the Common Practice Era. The Modern Era is defined by harmonies that don't follow conventional rules, odd time signatures and phrase structures, disguised tonality or atonality, and otherwise breaking the conventions of music that some would say bound composers like Mozart and Beethoven. This group also includes Postmodernism, most notable for its more pessimistic and less confident (post-World Wars) worldview than that of the Modern Era. This group is for people who write music that stretches and breaks rules.

Musescore Arrangements

12 discussions • 1.4K scores • 162 members

This is the official group to upload all of your transcriptions and arrangements so that they may gain more popularity. Please feel free to discuss Musescore activity on here! Anyone can join, but the only music that should be posted here is arrangements and transcriptions, even though I love compositions. Sometimes the prize for winning an "Anything You can Upload with Competitions" competition will be admin in both groups, but only when it is announced. Both groups will have a lot of interaction with each other so please join it here:

https://musescore.com/groups/anythingyoucanuploadwithcompotitions

If someone uploads a composition, an admin will ask for it to be removed. If it is not, the member will be removed from the group. Please use kind words at all times or you will also be removed.

Please always remember to be kind and comment on others arrangements/transcriptions!
