Welcome to another Garritan Weekend Challenge! We’ll throw out the topic, and you write the music, for no reason other than it’s fun.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Garritan Holiday Album! Since 2004, the Garritan community has celebrated the season by creating an album of holiday-inspired music, free to anyone! Written, produced and mastered exclusively by community members from all music backgrounds, this celebration of holiday music has fast become a tradition for the Garritan community. The 10th anniversary year promises to be the best yet, and we thought we’d extend the holiday spirit to our weekend challenge!
This weekend, your challenge is to create 30 seconds (or more if you’d like) of holiday music. This could be an arrangement of your favorite holiday tune, or an original composition in a style that makes us excited to open presents, spin a dreidel, bust out our wooden shoes, drink eggnog, use reindeer noses as flood lights… well, you get the point. Insert the memory of your favorite holiday tradition into the music you write this weekend.
Publish your tune on SoundCloud and share the link below. We’ll share your music all month.
Interested in downloading the 10th anniversary holiday album? We’ll share the download link on the Garritan blog when it’s ready so stay tuned!
