about

Composers from around the world participated in a series of 6 challenges based on Olympic events.

Composer's Choice:
"Maybe you can’t compete in a REAL Olympic event, but you an at least compose something in honor of one. You’ll pick an event and decide what style or form captures its essence. For example, if you picked javelin throw, you might compose a long continuous arc in your melody. Or maybe you want to capture the improvisation of a boxing match with competing jazz solos. Or maybe you just want to write a song about a bobsled team. Provide a recording to share with the group, plus a short written description of the event you chose and how you represented it in your composition."

For more context on each song, you read their program notes here: docs.google.com/document/d/153WbPqAqNpaD4TQhXat5rkW8Mc6zY7sdT6ex_qEc-iA/edit?usp=sharing
