Masters Remastered (1 Albums, 51 Tracks)
Ever thought Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries” would be better as a speed-metal guitar solo? Or perhaps Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” would sound great performed by a kazoo-and-firecracker ensemble? What about “In The Hall of the Mountain King” as a chiptune odyssey?
Great ideas, right?! We know.
We want these things to exist. And we need your help in this Masters Remastered Challenge!
First, choose a composition from the public domain. If you’re stumped (or can’t remember the original name of the composition), check the list below for some ideas. Though you can find sheet music in a variety of places, we recommend the Petrucci Music Library, which indicates public domain status of its contents. Entries will be released back into the public domain with a CC0 license, so that others can use them, too. But make these your own. Remix them, play them with instruments the composers couldn’t have dreamed of, make them as long or short as you want. Do as many (or as few) as you please.
We'll accept entries from March 9 until April 3, 2015.
The Masters Remastered Challenge is supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
