    Arrow Garritan Orchestration Challenge #21

    Hi Everyone,

    I've got a twist for this round of the Garritan Orchestration Challenge (#21). Normally the challenge setter provides a melody to be orchestrated. This time, I'm going to specify the rhythm of the melody, giving the participants the freedom to choose the note pitches.

    Here's the given rhythm:

    The only requirement is that the relative note durations be maintained.

    [EDIT 4/11: It's legitimate to have the rhythm "sound" differently than notated as might be the case with a jazz swing treatment.]

    This means that you are free to select the tempo, time and key signatures, instrumentation (no restrictions other than using predominantly Garritan libraries) and most importantly, the note pitches (melody). Let's shoot for a target of two to three minutes with a maximum time limit of four minutes.

    General guidelines for this challenge can be found at Sean's site:
    http://www.wizardwalk.com/OrchestrationChallenges/

    I'll propose a deadline of Monday, May 18, 2009 (any time zone is valid).
    Entries should be sent to Sean Hannifin at seanthebest@gmail.com

    How does this sound? Questions?

    I'd like to thank Sean, in advance, for administering the Challenge!

    Good luck!

    That's Great, Ken! I came so close to posting a rhythm motif last time, so it's a neat surprise to see that you've done that this time. I think it's a fun thing, to have each round have its own unique parameters.

    Hope this sparks some imaginations, because it should!

    Hi Everyone,

    Just wanted to clarify that it's legitimate to have the rhythm "sound" differently than notated, as might be the case with a jazz swing treatment , or a Viennese waltz!

    With over a month, there's still plenty of time to take up this challenge. So, give it a try by tapping that rhythm out right now and see what ideas emerge!

    Good luck!

    Good idea, Hong Kong - thanks for bumping this.
