Let me have your thoughts on this ...
A lot of the submissions to the challenges is - IMHO - of just about professional standard.
The composition challenges also have the extra interest of different interpretations on a theme, and often an explanation from those taking part about their thinking, recording process and equipment.
I'd like to get some of that content out to a wider audience - firstly because I think the compositions deserve to be heard more widely, and secondly because I'd hope that the extra exposure might encourage more people to participate.
Mark / Jooky (remember him?) is currently publishing a couple of music-related "things". One is the guitar quarterly hardback book and the second is his weekly 4:52am e-magazine.
4:52am, being an e-mag, incorporates a lot of rich media rather than just pictures and words. Talking to Mark, he'd be very happy to feature some of the music-making challenges that we've done here.
Win for him - gives him some different content that would build into a regular series.
Win for us - gives us more exposure as a forum generally and to the composition challenge specifically.
(Obviously, someone may get offered a mega-£m recording contract when their composition gets heard, but please don't hold your breath waiting for that).

What are your thoughts on this generally, and would anyone specifically not
like for their work to be included?
