We have our first contribution, it is anonymously so I've compiled it on my youtube channel:

I would like to change the deadline for contribution and voting:

New deadline for submitting a contribution is august 8 ( ie you can submit any time now up to and including that friday ).
Start of voting period is 11 august ( a monday ).

Next week and the week after that (week 30 and 31, 21 july to 3 aug) I will go offline internet shocked

So I will therefor not be able to respond to any messages or be active in any way, until I'm back.

Therefor I need some extra time to prepare the contributions before the voting begins.

Meanwhile have the greatest time, and make this forum bubble with activity!

Contribution number four enters the competition. Link to youtube is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkltDfYSrN0

Are there anyone else who has pending contributions? The contribution submit period is over, but lets give it today also to allow submissions just in case.

Well, you haven't gotten a very good turnout, have you? Four submissions, all of them qualifying for B and only one qualifying for C, thus rendering the B and C votes superfluous.

Now don't be like that wink .. I remember you were the sole participant in the previous competition "christmas carol", so in light of that we've grown 300% ! laugh

I think you are correct that the only meaningful voting category is A ("best submission").

Here is my contribution.
It's called "Big Blue".
It's about a 4 note motive which is rhythmically displaced in different ways (see the attached pdf File)

Are these submissions only for fellow-composers to vote on? I enjoyed listening to them all - such a nice variety - but there's one in particular that really appealed to me. If this is open to anyone, no matter their music level, then I'd be happy to come back to cast a vote.

A vote for #6 - Toccata Boogie for best submission.

Since #6 appears to be for solo piano and lasts well under 2 minutes, I suppose that vote would also take care of the "solo piano" and "bagatelle" categories then. smile

Best submission and best solo piano: #2 (The Touch bu FireFinch)

Very nice and calm piece, but not flat or boring like these kind of pieces easily become. Well done!

I'll also vote for "Toccata Boogie" -- it's very sophisticated, gentle, quite original in concept. However, Firefinch, Steve Chandler, and Cudo also wrote very fluent, wonderful compositions as well. Any one of them are equally deserving, IMO.

Of course I like my own piece, #3, but I also liked Firefinch's piece #2 and the Toccata Boogie #6. I'll vote for my piece #3, but the Toccata Boogie kills for C.

I was torn between Steve's Nocturne and Firefinch's The Touch, but I decided to go with the former. #2 for A. Not going to vote on other categories.

While, for me, the Toccata Boogie was interesting I couldn't really understand what was going on. Maybe it's just the style or texture that did not appeal to me, but it obviously appeals to others! Good luck.

Thanks for organizing the fun event, Larry. smile

If any one wants to download the PDF score or MP3 recording of Toccata Boogie, here the are:
PDF score: http://www.PianoRecital.org/tmp/Toccata-Boogie-Axtremus.pdf
MP3 recording: http://www.PianoRecital.org/tmp/Toccata-Boogie-Axtremus.mp3

[EDIT: On second thought, it's probably better to move the discussion of a particular work to a different thread to avoid cluttering up this "voting" thread ... so here's the separate Toccata Boogie thread: http://www.pianoworld.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/2320452/Toccata_Boogie_--_piano_solo.html ]

Also a tip of the hat to Cudo ... your rendition/treatment of that 4-note motif is really beautiful. Pretty cool Jazz! I very much enjoy listening to it ... over and over and over again. thumb
