You know, disregard any comments I've made about this contest. I don't think I'll be participating regardless of the theme.

My idea is completely ignored and goes out the window faster than a tachyon beam....

What idea?

So far I like the theme and variations, march, and baroque themes as possibilities for the next one. Fugue would be so much fun, but it wouldn't be very beginner friendly (not to say it still can't be done).

With all of those ideas, we'd probably go over the specifics of the criteria right? I personally don't really know anything about what constitutes a theme and variations (I'm not in college yet, shhh.)

Basically you present something as it was originally written, then you alter and change it in different ways and forms. Look up some variations if you get a chance to get a better idea, Haydn's Symphony no. 92, second mvt; Beethoven's Diabelli Variations, Bach's Golberg Variations, Liszt wrote a few as well, most notably Totentanz. Handel's Air and Variations from his Harpsichord suite in E, often called "The Harmonious Blacksmith".

Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini (Paganini's original work being the source for numerous variations), is a shining example of the style, in my opinion.

Basically there are no limits to what you can do with something like this.

Thanks, I'll look those up, and the last sentence was mostly what I was wondering. Things like baroque suites and sonatas are relatively strict, so I was wondering if the word "variations" had certain requirements.

You're thinking of "Variations on 'Ah Vous Dirai-Je Maman'", which is twelve variations on what we call "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star", which is a standalone piece for piano.

Listen to the entirety of the soundtrack for Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins. The core soundtrack is essentially a set of variations on a theme, with "Athletic Theme" serving as the basis for most of the tracks.

Actually a lot of the Mario games (more so in the 2D side scrollers) simply rework a single theme into variations for different levels.

Yeah, but none so much as that one. None of the others have more than one or two variations on a main theme. Another good example would be Super Mario 64, which in addition to the main theme also has the variations in the form of the snow mountain and slide pieces.
