I’m excited to announce our next composing quest, courtesy of Tim Cheesebrow and his forearm. Tim has been looking for a way to commemorate his family tree through music, and he’s decided to leave it to Composer Quest listeners to write a “Cheesebrow family” melody. Tim will then choose his favorite composition, and TATTOO IT ON HIS ARM.
Tattoo Challenge Details
- Composition must be from 4 to 8 measures long, on a grand staff (treble and bass clef).
- Composition must represent Tim’s family tree (see below) in a way that can be explained, with clear rules to follow for future children added to the family.
- Composition is due by 11:59pm Central on Wednesday, Dec. 9th to firstname.lastname@example.org. Send the sheet music as a PDF, plus your explanation of how the composition relates to Tim’s family tree, and rules for expanding it. Also, please send a demo mp3 file or MIDI file (mp3s through dropbox or wetransfer.com).
- Tim will choose his favorite composition and have it tattooed on his arm in early 2016.
