The challenge for this week will begin now and end at 12:00PM, Alaska Standard Time on Wednesday the 21st. That will likely give the rest of you a little bit more time to enter if you're last minute. At the time of this post, it is 11:18 AM Alaska Time.
This week the challenge is to redo the track "Arrival to Earth", by Steve Jablonsky. The theme starts at about 0:47. So I want you to take the main theme that you hear there, and change it. Remix it, redo it, change the tempo, change the structure, change the key, just make it yours. Take that theme and do whatever you want to it, whether it's with different instruments or speeds, make it fit an entirely different idea. Take that theme and go with it.
Here's an example, this is the score I did for my previous film, Only Human. Listen to the track at the timer, just before 3:30. That main theme was more or less Arrival to Earth but redone. I took those chords and changed it up quite a bit, you'd probably have never noticed if I hadn't pointed it out. But when you listen to them both, you can probably see what I'm talking about.
That's what I want you to do. Take the idea and make it your own, and include a brief description of what you did with it and the sort of scene you'd use it with. The one that I think best captures the original theme, while having a new or different twist on it, will be the winner.
-The host/judge/previous contest winner will select a film, theme, style or composer that they wish the contest entrants to compose to.
-The score has to be at least 30 seconds long and no longer that 5 minutes.
-The host will judge the entries and select a winner who will host the next challenge; and so on.
-The challenge will be held around every week and monthly contests will be held on certain occasions.
-Each Wednesday, the winner from the previous challenge becomes the host and will post a new theme.
