The Master Composers|Arrangers

71 discussions • 4.3K scores • 928 members

This is a group for groups that are for specific instrument types to join so each group can have a music-composing contest and submit their scores to this group for a final vote. Each group's winner would compete against the other groups' winners for a Grand Master Composer Winner!! The user and his/her score's name would be entered into our Hall of Fame to show our best piece of music to all the world! The winners of each group's competition would be invited to The Master Composers - Finals to show that they are the most elite of all the composers on this website.

Also, this group promotes activity and promotes any groups that join.

If you are not a part of any of these groups (see Groups discussion), then join one of them or make a group for whatever instrument you play that has not been made yet. All are welcome!

Music Battle!

141 discussions • 15 scores • 387 members

This is a group where we have musical battles! Everyone will chose a side and one side will be crowned the victor. Then there will be a ultimate victor of the winning group!

Directions:
1. Click on the discussion with info about the next battle.
2. Read the themed sides and the requirements and pick your side.
3. Make a score with the requirements.
4. Send your song in mp3 form to musicbattlepieces@gmail.com and include which side you joined and your Musescore username.
5. When the deadline is hit, voting starts. You vote for either side that you think should win, and you can vote for someone to be the ultimate victor, disregarding their side. At this time we are trying a new voting format, where you give multiple votes to multiple people. The more entries, the more votes you can give. You may absolutely not vote for yourself!
6. If you are crowned the ultimate victor of your side, you get to pick the 2 or more sides next time! You will just need to send the admins a message, and we will make the discussion!
7. Even if you don't win, you still get to post your song in the group! Just make sure you write that you submitted it to a battle in the description :)

*If you post the song on YouTube, please state what contest it is for and your Musescore username.

Rules:
1. No voting for yourself to be the Ultimate Victor. (But you can vote for either side that you think should win.)
2. People cannot use scores they've finished and posted to musescore before the battle.
3. Any songs that have been entered in any battle may be posted in the group. Reference to the group and the fact it was written for the group should be contained within the description.
4. No being a mean person.
5. No bad language or inappropriate references.
7. Listen to all entries thoroughly before voting.
8. No not having fun! ^_^

High School Composers Competition!

59 discussions • 164 scores • 192 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.

For further reading, see the constitution:

or the interpretation:

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