As previously announced, we will be launching a new Orchestration Challenge soon. We'd really like to get some decent interest going and thus more traffic on the forum. To that end, I am seeking the help of anyone who could make a small donation of something for a prize. It can be goods such as a piece of kit that you have lying around unused, a book or CD, or offering a service such as recording a vocal or instrumental, or otherwise donating time to work on a project.
Randy Bowser has already offered a free copy of his excellent auto harp instrument for Aria (a $10 value). I am going to chip in to offer an hour or two of my time to either record a piano solo, or contribute to a project by doing real-time recording of any GPO instruments for those that work in notation and want a little extra realism injected into their recording.
If we get a number of such smaller prizes, we could even offer first and second prizes - maybe even a third prize.
Please let me know either by replying to this thread or by private message. Any donations, no matter how small, would help sweeten the deal and hopefully liven up the forum once again.
Many thanks, my friends
