That was unexpected..
If the sample in question has a origin other than C, would it still count as the melody or not?

There is a picture of a walkman: http://battleofthebits.org/disk/battle/00004412/artwork.png

On it, there's a piece of music in what seems to be G major:

a G3 half note
a G4 quarter note
G3, A3 and B3 eight notes
a F#3 quarter note and
a A3 quarter note.

Make whatever you want, as long as this melody is a prominent piece of it!

Quick question, is the song itself required to be in 13/8 or is just the melody a requirement?

you can do whatever you want as long as the melody is in it, so i think 13/8 is not required for the whole song

the melody simply implies 13/8
but its fine if you add a dotted quarter rest afterwards or whatever!

ok i'm still confused, so does the winner get that sweet walkman? do we have to incorporate fm synthesis or fm radio? also, can somebody loan me a 4 track for tape loops

I have no idea if thats a joke or not. The melody is printed on the walkman. If you wish to hear it then maybe listen to the current entries and see if you can pick out the melody that they are all using.

this is a comment listing every entry + when the walkman melody is used, just because im bored and need something to do.
- if it plays on loop, i just added a '+' after the timestamp
- if there is a loop, i tried to only add the occurences in the first playthrough

@kleeder: I'm curious, how do you get 0:02 for pointy peek and not 0:00? I'm not complaining, just genuinely curious because you have other 0:00 in there

Can I post my predictions for the final votes and ranking using machine learning 1 day/a few hours before voting ends, to see if I can actually forecast it or not?

I ask because maybe posting a list of votes and ranks might influence someone which would be bad, but if I post it a few hours before it can't be a big deal, right?

:)

There oughta be more majors with prompts like this, it's fun seeing creative ways to use pre-picked motifs.
