The challenge is on!
In regard to the discussions about the possibilities and/or limits of
the 20-keyless scale (Carl Frei, Raffin, etc.) the following:
I hereby make a (one or more) "re-call" about my last
- On one side, I want to cancel the challenge about the "Turkish March"
by W. A. Mozart. The part of that piece I was talking about didn't
seem to get through to anybody, also it is indeed quite a big leap for
starting from scratch/beginning with arranging.
- On the other side, I want to call for a new challenge, one that looks
very, very innocent and easy, _but_: you will see! <HeHeHe>
The idea is the following:
For everybody who wants to join into the challenge, all they need is a
sequencer software program (such as CakeWalk) and the 20-keyless scale.
It has been mentioned before, but here 'tis again:
f4,a#4, c5,d5,d#5,e5,f5,g5,a5,a#5, c6,d6,d#6,e6,f6,g6,a6,a#6, c7,d7
The subject/matter/material for the competition is:
"Fuer Elise" by Beethoven
Goal: to get the complete piece done within the range of the scale
using only the given/available notes.
Winner: every participant! And MMD!
You will get to learn how to really deal with arranging when it just
doesn't seem possible whatsoever!
Every result should be sent in to MMD, so we can listen through all of
them. We then could do a vote for the best done arrangement and also
analyze in how different people approach a task like this.
The only two things I am unsure about is:
- When should we draw a deadline for competition-entry?
- Where to send the results to.
(As I would hope to see Robbie compete as well, it would be rather
unfair to sent the finished projects of others to him; about the same
I'd have to say about myself; alas, I am already finished with this
Who is game? :-)
