Mozart's Requiem Mass in D Minor, perhaps?
Close – but no. What do you listen to while you work? What gears you up to take on the world?
This week we want music to be your muse, to flow through your veins and slip out your fingers in letters or pictures.
We want you to create a masterpiece.
Below is a score from Tim Burton's Edward Scissorhands composed by Danny Elfman. Listen and feel the music. Shut your eyes and let the clouds behind your lids frolic and form images. Be involved in the violins and the haunting voices. Show us where this music takes you.
In under 500 words evoke this emotion in your readers. Play the story your mind creates. Paint us a picture.
Artists, please submit one image only. Go to our Submit Work page under "Dimensions" for how to submit your work to us.
Deadline for submissions: Tuesday, May 31th. The winners will be announced on Friday, June 4th.
With your submission please put in the subject line "Music Challenge".
You can submit your work as a Word document or directly in the email to firstname.lastname@example.org and please forgive us in advance if we don't write back to you immediately. Tex is fairly anal about reading and viewing everything we get. With your submission please tell us a little bit about yourself.
For the rest of the guidelines and what should not be submitted, go to our Submit Work page.
