November Music Challenge: 60 Seconds and Under!

November 2, 2013 3:37 AM

An idea from our dear friend Sweet Mister that's short and sweet

Now that the almighty juggernaut of the request raffle has swept through town, leaving our maids blushing* and our kids with candies in their pockets**, I thought that this super suggestion by Sweet Mister would be the perfect after-party.

So... in 60 seconds or less, how sweet/sad/funny/sexy/hardcore/funky can you get? Can anyone get me out of my chair to dance in that short window of opportunity? Apart from Prince?

Give us your minute masterpiece, tag it MeFiMusicChallenge and 60seconds. Ready, set... GO

Could I get away with variations on Cage's 4'33'' played very very fast?

That depends on your definition of 'get away with' and how deep your pockets are! ;)

"In July Batt attempted to prove his silent track differed from Cage's by staging a performance of the piece.
Peters Edition responded by hiring a clarinettist, to perform Cage's silent composition."

This is the best thing I've read today. Fact.

I've got one cooking but not sure I'll get it in under the wire... we'll see.

Got it in with two seconds to spare, if you see what I mean. Seems a bit pale in comparison to Choco's magnum opus, but hey.

Wow those are both ace. I've been laid up for days with flu, so I'm going to miss this challenge sadly. These are wee beauties though and have brightened my day!
