WHAT:
Mini-Skirmish - ss190907b

WHEN:
Saturday Sept 7, 2019
12:00 AM CDT St. Louis, 6:00 PM BST
London, 5:00 AM NZST New Zealand

WHO:
You!!!! All of you who are experienced skirmishes, those who are skirmish superstars and all of you who have never tried a skirmish before. This is for you!

PROMPT/THEME: HOTEL

Bonus words: Bed, key, room

Use the prompt however you like - it may be a metaphor or it may be about a road trip or it may be haunted - whatever you want it to be!

HOW:
Take the prompt and use it to write your song. Songs can be any kind of song you want, from full productions of music and lyrics to lyrics only or instrumentals. It is up to you.

Write your song and post it within 60 minutes after the prompt is posted. Songs posted past the time limit will self destruct and your profile page will go blank. Okay, that is not true, participate when you can. The advantage of doing so in the time limit is that there will be a cohort of eager participants waiting to check out your contribution. No penalties, however, if you are late or come back and play later.

Help others know that you participated. Tag your song: ss190907b and/or post a link to your song in this thread. I find the latter is sufficient. Mark your song “feast” on the page which will flag it as a quick write.

Check out and comment on the contributions of other participants. It is interesting and informative to see and hear how others took that same prompt and created something different or similar to your own.

Have fun and enjoy the process! It is not about creating a masterpiece it is about building creative flexibility and nimble processes to stimulate ideas. Try something new. Take risks. Enjoy!!!

ran out of time but had a fair bit started and will probably come back to it with more time. had the beginnings of a song called Art Deco Hotel and I think there is some mileage in it. got waylaid trying to record it and was a bit ambitious so havent even got any lyrics worth showing, just notes, but enjoyed trying and nice prompt thanks.

Thank you Liz, here is my instrumental: http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/39942

I combined the dorion mode challenge with autopilot casio, and orff xylophone. It is probably a failed experiment, but I had a fun 90 minutes monkeying with it. http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/39947
