TWMC #2 - Batman Villains

Forgot that I was supposed to start and judge the next competition, hit my birthday, so derp and sorry:p  I know you all may be thinking that this sounds like a theme from a 5 year old.  But it's not, it's a theme from an 18 year old who grew up watching the show.  Some Batman villains are surprisingly relatable, they're just humans with tragic stories that made them what they are.  I would like the competitors to make an original song for any Batman villain of their choosing.  From the tragic story of Mr. Freeze, to the psychopathy and fun of the Joker.  Make sure that the song is completely original.  Also, unique to this competition, I need to know what era what adaptation of the villain you are using.  i will use the Judging Rubric from said discussion.  Good luck, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Soundfont problems

So I have an incredible piece that I want to feature in a future contest but the problem is that  musescore won't let me upload my piece with the soundfonts. All you can hear on the parts with custom soundfonts is piano  or nothing. 
So it doesn't sound. nearly as good as it's suppossed to. Is there any way for y'all to judge a piece like that?  Is it possible for y'all to download it and judge it?

TWMC #1 - The Elements

Thank you all so much for joining the competition! I believe we have enough people to start, so here goes:

Our theme of the month is 'The Elements'. You get to choose between fire, air, earth, and water and try to display the 5 senses (or one of them) through music. If you can't think of any ideas to start your composition, here are some:

- Consuming a forest, city, home, etc.
- The emotion you feel looking at it
- A soft song that would bring out the warmth
- The crackling of a fire

- Flying through the sky (maybe a bird, mythical creature, etc.)
- The breeze on top of a mountain
- Tornado or hurricane

- Different countries (use ethnic instruments and chord structures)
- The life of a person or animal
- Bring out the sweet smell of flowers, cedar trees, etc.
- Mix the sounds of animals into an ambient piece

- Bubbles
- A glorious epic piece about a waterfall
- The sound of a river or creek
- Rain
- A storm in the middle of the ocean

Please make sure your compositions are 1:30-4:00 minutes long and that they go along with the theme of this competition. Also, please include (TWMC #1) in the cover title on your score and the MuseScore upload

Since this competition is just kicking off, we're starting early. The deadline for submitting your compositions will be May 31st.

~ Two Judges Needed! ~


Because of the diversity of styles in our participants' compositions, I will need two volunteer judges with appreciations for all styles of music and different music preferences to help. 

Please comment below if you are interested in judging. This will be a big responsibility so you will need to be active on MuseScore and checking your e-mail often.

Next Competition Idea

So, I've been sick all week with the worst cold I've ever had, so naturally I've had a lot of time to watch Batman the Animated Series.  Batman has numerous villains in his rogue gallery, form Mr. Freeze to the wickedly hilarious Joker.  What if we had to create our own original theme for the villain of our choice?  Of course you would have to put in description why you chose the mood of the song.
