Round 4 Everyone!
Welcome back to the 'The Art of Music' contest! Music itself has many forms and genres all having their own unique flavors. Being a musician is an art, regardless what instrument you play or device you use to modify or create musical pieces with. The point of this contest is to encompass ALL of it. Following in the footsteps of my 'KillerPix Contest', each week, you will be given a theme.
This past week, we had the Metal Heads come out of the wood works and it was badass! LOVED IT. At the Billboard Music Awards recently, one artist just cleaned house and every category he was in, he won. So, paying homage to his spectacular voice and songwriting skills, the theme this week is - ED SHEERAN. I can't wait to see the voices show up for this!
- Each week, this post begins the new contest and you have until you see the 'Contestants' post on the following Wednesday to get your entry in.
- The 1st tag for your submission post must be #artofmusic.
- This submission thread must be upvoted (if you would like more competition, please resteem it).
- Your video or track of yourself performing MUST be in the comments of THIS post (so you can get the popularity vote), or at least a link to your Steemit post entry.
- We will not accept videos or recordings we cannot embed in a post for people to easily enjoy. I.E. - DTube etc., sorry if this is an inconvenience. DSound & DLive may be acceptable, we'll see how it works out.
- If it is NOT an original piece, include a link in your post to the version of the song you performed so a comparison can be made for reference.
- Popular Vote: 50% weight - This contest is going to rely heavily on other Steempeeps' opinions of your performance.
- The Judges: 50% weight - We will go through and pick our favorites as well, so better be sure to bring your 'A' game peoples!
NOTE - You may only vote for yourself ONCE, purchased bot votes for yourself will not count.
