Is there or has there ever been a timed composition competition for brass band - say at 9:00 all the competing composers are given a thematic/rhythmic fragment, and then at midday a brass band performs all the finished scores and the adjudicators (or the audience) decide the best? Just wondered. I thought if all the composers used Sibelius, then the progress of their compositions could be monitored by the audience while they work. Could be a real masterclass if you got some big names to take part. Could even video the composers as they work, asking them to explain what they're doing.
