High School Composers Competition!

59 discussions • 164 scores • 194 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

Modernist Composers

18 discussions • 1.3K scores • 180 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.
