I'll post my thoughts in a bit.Please post if you think you may be entering - thanks!
Memories are often clouded, modified incorrectly due to person interpretation...perhaps only the negative is remembered, or only the positive, etc - be it someone's first time falling completely for another, a vacation to a distant land, a murder. They will be the subject of this Musical Challenge.
Your task is to..
Write a song that is of the form A-B, where A is "The event happening in the past", and B is "The remembering of that event by someone in the future". The event need not be a personal one such as a marriage/death/etc., it could be some fake historical event where A is a person experiencing it and B is a person from the future interpreting it. Or, A could be a boy's first time burning his tongue on a beef taco hot pocket, and B is him as an adult remembering that moment while going to fetch a Meatball Marinara Hot Pocket from the microwave for his son. You get the idea!
(or, two songs, one being "A" , the other "B")
The catch is that I will not be judging at all on explanation, the musical themes should be, well, musically connected in a somewhat obvious way! i.e., no verbal explanation needed or wanted, although feel free to post one though I'll as much as I can not allow it to influence my decision. SO, GET TO IT!
As perhaps an example, checkout the songs "Memory" and "Majesty" from the Fez OST.
The contest ends 11:59 PM EST, 6/22/12.
A bonus, "fun", prompt. For those who'd rather do something a little easier. If you win it, I'll uh, put any 16x16 sprite you want (within reason) in my new game, next to a bear named George. Somewhere. I think that's an okay unrelated prize.
THE ACTUAL CHALLENGE. MUSICALLY NARRATE THIS STORY THAT I WILL NOW TYPE UP RANDOMLYGeorge the bear was hungry one day, so he went to his local supermarket. He noticed that "Honey Oat Bunches" were on sale for 3.99/box. This excited him, so he tackled the little cereal rack and knocked down an entire aisle of the supermarket. His daughter was on the other side and was permanently crippled, so George the bear went on a rampage and destroyed the entire store, except for the melons. George was put down by the NYPD, and 10 years later there was a History Channel special on him.
