Original Music Composition – Contest

CHALLENGE: Compose an original song that creatively tells the story of one of the human figures displayed on the Summit poster and his/her possible triumph over the shadowed hands of the poster.

  1. Song must be no longer than 4 minutes and thirty seconds in total length
  2. Does not have to contain lyrics (If lyrics, only language that respects human dignity – avoid vulgarity of all kinds)
  3. Any style of music including rap, choral, country, rock, classical instrumental, etc.
  4. Solo or group work allowed but Brophy students only – in all aspects of composition and performance/recording
  5. Only one submission per student – so either solo or group – not one of each
  6. A 1-2 paragraph explanation of the song, lyrics, particular sounds/tones – why did you shape the song as you did? How does it expand an audience’s understanding and/or appreciation of our Summit? What from the Summit inspired you most to compose this? Why?
