I don't get it. Why is 'one voice' not the same as 'only one instrument' ?

Because one instrument may be piano - it can produce more notes. One voice is more challenging, is it not? (btw, I want to hold next compo as One Instrument, so you could write a solo instrument music, like for piano)

The idea of OVC came from listening to a lot of traditional music. It's usually a song, so it's one voice, since a man's voice can't produce chords. And usually a song is accompanied by chords. There's the idea. I was adviced, next time I run OVC, not to include that chord rule, since the melody can be harmonised and chored in various different ways, so it's not essential, only gets things complicated.

And so might people do in this compo, obviously. One backing note/chord + one melody note sounds like several notes to me. Hence the confusion I think.

Yes, but it would be even more challenging if one could apply one note at a time - what so ever; meaning no backing music. However, the next compo idea sounds very interesting. One instrument compo - and you're free to do what ever as long as you stick to that instrument, correct?

I see. I've gotten a certain interest for classical music lately myself. I have listened mostly to rock, blues and some funk - even jazz. Not much classical, however, but I'm about to change it. I'm interested in music theory, and I'd like to explore the approach of the classical masterminds.

well, if this works out well, I will start a similar compo, so you'll have your chance, Snu.

we will all wait for the judges to do their work. many people I have contacted while the compo was still running declined due to various reasons, so I have to find additional people for this. The results may take some time before appearing on the site.

also, you may all be ready to join the next compo, which I will run soon after OVC. :)

I'm sure we'll get to read all about it in the next issue of cheap newspaper, right?

:D ah, you still remember my small project... nah, dunno... I kinda thought that not really many people read it, so why bother... But I was always very touched, when ppl told me they liked it. I quess I just got a little bored with it and needed a challenge, so I started OVC! ;)

I could find only 3 people to judge. 2 have handed in their votings, one is awaited somewhere later today. I will also probably manage to hire the 4-th and 5-th judge today - some people whose opinion on music and whose tastes I admire. If not, there will be only three...

I think it's quite okay for OVC running only for the first time.
