^Don't worry about it if you're not a percussionist.

(he actually is, if I'm remembering correctly :P)
Though in that case, a single pitched instrument would make more sense. Marimba solo, vibes solo, etc.

And we've already done a solo and three mood-inverse themed contests. I think form and instrumentation would be more interesting things to center the next one around.

Though we've already done a form one, too, so that area's kinda tied with "number of instruments" for how many times we've done it haha. And Idk, my concern is that specifying exact instrumentation alienates people less familiar with that instrumentation, and same with form (theme and variations was a vaguely neutral one, but most others would be a little harder to pick up). A lot of forms might be more or less difficult to pull off depending on the original piece, too; sonata form, for example, what if there isn't really a viable second theme to work with? (obviously you could extrapolate one from the first theme, but again that's a little alienating of a process)

tl;dr those things would be really cool, but kinda difficult to pull off imo

Oh sure, they let you get away with that, but I can't post my Beatles references? I thought this was a society of music lovers.

Worry not, I expect someone will probably have it taken down by the end of today. We'll see how long my hay-day lasts.

Oh right that poll finished eons ago

So it looks like people want to see just the "cheerification" idea. It may seem repetitive to do another mood-inverse, but it's a really non-alienating framework, and involves the least complications, so I'm all for it. Any thoughts on the changes in judging criteria? (I'll probably put a poll up for that too)

Bumpity Boomp Bamp Bump.

Where has this gone? Holidays are upon us and it would be a good opportunity to do another of these. That is, if people are interested...

I would be willing for a first try. You won't be able to expect much from it though.

I think this thread kinda died with FierceDeity's absence. I'd certainly like to see this start up again, whether or not I'd actually participate is another matter entirely...

I would love to see this return during the holidays too. Though, I guess it all depends on if there is enough interest from the community.

I think it's safe to say that at least several people would be interested in this. Plus,
Holidays are upon us and it would be a good opportunity to do another of these.
