Welcome to the 10th NSM Arrangement Contest!

In a crushing victory, the theme for NinSheetMusic's 10th arrangement contest is...

Take an intense track and make a relaxing arrangement of it!

Additionally, this arrangement contest has a secondary featured instrument requirement: every arrangement must use the FLUTE as one of its instruments! I expect most people to use the standard Western concert flute, but... if your heart desires, you can use another variant, like a piccolo or a wooden flute! Just check in with me beforehand so that I know you're not using, like, a clarinet or something.

The submissions are in! We have 11 arrangements for this contest! You can find them here:

Arrangement Contest No. 10 Submissions

Currently Planned Timeline
  • Sign-up and song choice deadline: Sunday, July 10
  • Submission deadline: Sunday, August 21
  • Judging and popular vote timeline: Sunday, September 25
  • Results announced: Saturday, October 8

Overview of Contest Theme and Guidelines

The theme is relaxification! Take any intense/high-energy/high-tension/upbeat/fast/etc. video game track and make a cozy, relaxing arrangement to chill out to! There's a lot of leeway in which track you pick, as long as it's not something that most people would already consider relaxing! If you're unsure about your track choice, feel free to check in with me about it.

Your submission should be a very substantial, creative re-arrangement—i.e. change the instrumentation, tempo, mood, structure, and even melodies, rhythms, and harmonies if you so wish! Add interesting new parts and features that match your vision of the relaxing re-arrangement. But, also make sure your arrangement is still easily recognizable as a re-arrangement the original track!

The featured instrument is a flute! i.e. You'll be required to use one in your arrangement. The flute should play an interesting role (i.e. not just adding generic harmony buried under other instruments). But that doesn't mean it should have the melody the whole time (it probably shouldn't!)—you can have it switch to ornamented countermelodies, harmony parts, etc. tl;dr Make the flute an interesting and integral, but not overbearing, part of your arrangement!

Choosing the instrumentation can be hard. If you're newer, I recommend trying to use between 4 and 10 instruments for your arrangement. Don't feel pressured to make an arrangement with tons of instruments—many arrangements that have done well in the past have used 5, 6, or 7. Often less is more, and you can flesh out each instrument better. However, if you feel strongly about trying to make a grandiose arrangement with lots of parts, there's no one stopping you (but make sure it's still relaxing!).

You should make your arrangement in Finale or Musescore (or, heavens forbid, some other notation software of your choice). It's not just about the sound—aspects like visual and technical presentation, i.e. engraving practices, articulations, clear instructions, playability are part of the score! It should be something that a group of real musicians could very well play if they wanted to.

Judging Rubric

Relaxation Theme (10 points): How effectively does your arrangement transform a high-energy track into a relaxing one, while still remaining recognizable as the original? Is the arrangement substantially different in intensity/mood from the original? Do your choices of voicings, instrumentation, tonality, etc. enhance the relaxing nature of your arrangement?

Featured Instrument (5 points): How effectively do you use the featured instrument throughout your arrangement? Does it play an interesting, varied role without being overbearing? Does it enhance the way your arrangement satisfies the main contest theme?

Musicality (15 points): Independent of how well it satisfies the theme, is your arrangement enjoyable and engaging to listen to? Do your choices of harmonies, chords, form, etc. make sense and work together to create a cohesive piece of music?

Presentation (10 points): The technical notation and engraving side, consisting of the following components:
- Is the score neatly formatted, with all information labeled? No need to follow the submission guidelines or nitpick over precise alignment fixes, but please make sure it looks nice and include: arrangement title, subtitle with original game and track title, composer, arranger, copyright, and measure/page numbers.
- Are all parts legible, playable, and notated correctly for each instrument? (e.g. transposing instruments correctly transposed, instrument-specific articulations correctly expressed)
- Does the score have enough articulations and performance directions? No need to go overboard, but it should be clear and detailed enough for a live group of musicians to play if they wanted to.

Popular Vote (10 points): What do others think of your arrangement? The popular vote will be conducted after the submission deadline, with higher scores if your arrangement ranks higher in the vote!

TOTAL: 50 points

Arrangement Contests / Arrangement Contest No. 10 - Brainstorming
« on: June 23, 2022, 05:11:42 AM »
Hello, hello! After more than four years, we are finally bringing back NinSheetMusic's next arrangement contest! I would say "you know the drill," but it's been so long that y'all probably don't even, so here's how it's gonna work!

The gist: Arrange a VGM track of your choice for a larger instrument ensemble based on the theme that gets picked by popular vote!

- Brainstorm and vote on a contest theme (~1 week)
- Sign up to arrange or judge (~1 week)
- Arranging happens! (~6 weeks)
- Judging happens! (~2 weeks... ideally)
- Results!

In this topic (or in the corresponding Discord channel): Suggest themes for the contest! In my eyes, the best themes will ideally be those that:

1) allow arrangers to select from a wide variety of VGM tracks
  • So a theme like "take a vocal song and make an instrumental arrangement" would not be ideal because it severely limits the tracks that people can choose from. But something like "take an instrumental track and make a vocal arrangement with your own lyrics" would be cool!
2) don't completely constrain the instrumentation or form of the arrangement
  • Choosing the instrumentation and form of the arrangement is part of what makes the arrangements all unique and memorable. So, while it's perfectly healthy and probably likely for a particular theme to work better with some instruments or musical forms over others, it might be best to stay away from "arrange for string quartet" or "arrange in sonata-rondo form."
3) and encourage re-arranging many different musical aspects (tonality, chord progressions, instrumentation, melodic and rhythmic lines, form, dynamics, and so on) that all work together to enhance the theme.
  • Some of the previous themes like "bossification" (contest 6) and seasonal variations (contest 7) were, in my opinion, some of the best themes because they didn't constrain any one musical aspect, but rather encouraged arrangers to make lots of different creative decisions to create a new, cohesive piece of music. If you want to make a track sound like a boss theme, or like a winter theme, there are so many ways to do that—let your creativity run wild!

Here's the running list of themes so far, starting with the ones that were suggested before in the Discord's #arrangement-contests channel. I'll update this list with more themes that people continue to suggest, although at my discretion I may not include all of them to prevent the list from getting too long.

UPDATE: Voting is open now! To vote, DM me (either forum PM or on Discord) with a ranked list of ALL seven contest themes listed above, i.e. denoting 1, 2, 3, etc., 7 for each one (1 being the one you want the most and 7 the one you want the least). Only people who are interested in arranging/judging in the contest should vote (it's okay if you're not yet sure, this is mainly to ensure that the selected theme reflects the preferences of those who are participating). ALSO: In your DM, please also include whether you like the featured instrument idea (see below), dislike it, or are indifferent to it.

Voting will close at 11:59 PM EDT, Friday, July 1, barely less than 5 full days from the time of this post!

List of themes to vote on:
  • Re-arrange a track in the style of another track/composer/soundtrack/series
  • Make a relaxing arrangement of an intense track (i.e. de-bossification?)
  • Take a track associated with a particular biome and re-arrange it to sound like another biome instead
  • Mash up a track with a non-VGM Christmas song
  • Arrange a track in a jazz style
  • Arrange a track as a rock ballad
  • Arrange a track as a mash-up between two different genres

Quote from: Featured instrument idea
One more thing! One idea Insig and Maestro had before when brainstorming for the contest was that, at the start of the arranging period, the judges announce a featured instrument that every arrangement must include in some capacity. This would be in addition to the normal contest theme. So, for instance, it might be that every arrangement must include a violin. This would be a way to constrain the orchestration styles a bit (but not too much) to make the submissions easier to compare during judging (as opposed to comparing a string quartet vs. rock band instruments). It might also be interesting for arrangers to figure out how to incorporate the featured instrument into the contest theme. Thoughts on this? Please discuss if you have opinions for or against this idea!

Suggestions about the LH part on this one is appreciated; I just came up something that worked when I playtested it, but there might a better possibility, especially with the last section.

If I have time tonight, I might arrange another thing... I stayed up to do one more

An unpleasant vibration reaches my ear.
A wrong note, a dissonant interval.
The cacophony of my fingers tripping over each other.
No matter how many times I try,
It never sounds good.

I play. I stop.
The music lingers in the air,
Marred by clumsiness.
It should be a masterpiece. But to me, it's unbearable.
I try to remember why I wanted to learn at all.
But no matter how far back I reach,
I can't find the answer.

But what's this? A new sheet?
Cautiously, I open it up.
Yet more notes upon notes,
Just like the last. But this one is different.
Chords shine on the page like vibrant colors. Rhythms take form like flowing brushstrokes.
The image stirs up the faint memory of an old song.
A melody sparks inside my head.

And before I realize it,
my fingers begin to move again.

There isn't an official name for this track. The most common results I see online are "Main Theme," "Main Menu," "Menu Theme," and "Main Menu Theme," but I don't really like the sound of "Main Menu Theme"... but I can include the word "Menu" if people think that would be better, I guess. (This is the only music in the game anyway, so it's not like omitting the word "Menu" is going to introduce any ambiguity.)

Also, the RH rhythms are mostly approximations. I didn't want to introduce 32nd-note divisions, so I wrote what I thought was the closest fit with 16th-note divisions.

« on: May 31, 2020, 01:48:10 AM »
Hello and welcome back again to another special NSM arrangement project! This time around, the theme (as decided by you all) is REPLACEMENTS!

To streamline the process and organize feedback, we'll be doing things a little differently from the last project. Here's what you should do if you're interested in participating:

Personal Arranger Threads: This time, everyone will have a separate arranger thread in order to segregate feedback more effectively. Here's what you should do:
  • Create a new thread in this board (the newly created Projects board) and include your username/arranger name in the title (e.g. [username]'s Replacement Project Sheets). You will be using this one personal thread for the entirety of the project.
  • In the first post, maintain a running list of the sheets you have submitted, along with links to the original tracks (preferably via YouTube).
  • All sheet-related feedback and discussion should go in the corresponding personal arranger's thread. (General questions about the process can go here.)

Uploading Sheets: This time, all participating arrangers will directly upload and edit their submissions to the Dropbox folder. Here's what you should do:
  • PM Latios212 (via the forums or on Discord, Latios#8855) with your email address in order to gain editing access to the Dropbox folder.
  • When you have a sheet to submit, upload a MUS or MUSX file directly to the "Replacements" Dropbox folder. Replace the file whenever you revise the sheet. You will be responsible for keeping your sheets updated in the folder in response to feedback.
  • Do not move sheets into the Approved or Accepted folders; updaters will do that when necessary. (If your sheet is already in the Approved folder, however, you can re-upload any newer versions directly to the Approved folder.)

To avoid overlap between arrangers: Since we anticipate this being a fairly active project, please post in this thread which sheets you're planning on replacing, and check what others have posted as well. This way, we can minimize the incidence of multiple arrangers replacing the same sheet.

Deadline: We need to receive all submissions by (Saturday, June 13th) to ensure that we can check all the sheets in time.

Happy arranging, everyone!

Music / The NSM Community Collaborative Cover (Potential) Project!
« on: February 29, 2016, 11:46:42 PM »
Too often I feel that piano arrangements are too limiting, and that we could make something bigger out of an arrangement. And today I got this idea... why not a big-scale collaborative cover by the community of NSM? I think we would really be able to make a great piece of work as a community... that is, if we ever manage to get this finished. I doubt this will ever be finished in the near future, but perhaps at a time when we are more available, such as in the summer, this could potentially become a reality. (Key word: potentially.)

If we decide to go through with this, we'll need a person or people to arrange the music for all the available instruments. We'll also need a cast of instruments, so feel free to post what instruments you play.

Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions for a theme to cover? (Preferably from a video game, since after all, NSM is about video game music.)

Worst case scenario, this thread just dies and becomes forgotten eventually... but best case scenario, we can make a great America video game music cover through this (potential) project.

Possible Participants:
  • mastersuperfan - Piano
  • braixen1264 - Acoustic Guitar
  • E. Gadd Industries - Piano
  • Olimar12345 - Bass Trombone, Baritone Horn, Melodica
  • Altissimo - Trumpet
  • Latios212 - Piano
  • Yug Guy - Piano, Drum Set
  • Zunawe - Trombone, Ocarina
  • cashwarrior1 - Hand Percussion
  • Sebastian - Cello
  • JDMEK5 - Piano, Acoustic Guitar, Electric Bass, Harmonica, Banjo, Cuatro
  • Th3Gast3r - Clarinet, Tenor Sax, Mellophone
(I'm leaving out the ones that people are tentative on/not very good at, but if someone still wants to try one of your iffy instruments, feel free to post about it.)

(I say possible because, with the smaller scale covers that I'd like to get done, chances are not everyone is going to be involved in each cover. Arrangers are also needed for this to work, but those can be decided upon after the theme is chosen, unless someone wants to arrange no matter what.)

Possible Themes:
  • "And what if I can't? What if I'm not worthy of her ideals?" - Fire Emblem: Awakening
  • Route 201 - Pokémon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum (Arranged by braixen1264)
