    ANNOUNCING the WORST DEMO EVER CONTEST- The SEQUEL

    Let's have another WORST DEMO EVER contest making the absolute worst music of all time.

    Time to do something fun again! There have been so many great demos lately and it's time to hear some really bad music. It has been a year already since we had our first WORST DEMO EVER contest. Last year's winner was Disco Bagpipes by Darwin Kopp (ouch! that's aweful )


    The demo must be beyond bad. It must have no redeeming value whatsoever. It must make you cry for mercy when you hear it and make the tone-deaf cringe. Dissonant hackneyed melodies, insipid or dopey motifs, poorly organized or overblown production, horrifying instrument tunings and combinations, terrible arpeggios, the pulsating chords and annoying solos, polka and disc rhythms, aweful mixes are all at play here. It must be aural torture.

    Only the most truly toxic demo will be awarded this special status and be bestowed with a terrific prize to ease the agony of victory. Non-winning entrants will revel in the happiness of defeat when the discover their demo is too good to win. The winning works will get airplay on the Composer Channel.

    Those who have been reluctant to post your demo because you think it is not good enough, here is your chance!

    We'll all vote on the worst demo ever and the winner will be inducted into the Hall of Shame. Winners will win something, that's for sure. This can even make you famous and launch your career!

    Looking forward to hearing your worst.

    Can there really be another Worst Demo Ever contest? At the very least, the first winner and second will have to go head to head to determine who is really the worst ever.

    I hate to say it, but Disco Bagpipes sounds like the stuff I turn out when I'm trying REAL HARD to get things right!

    Can I do this sort of thing intentionally? We'll have to see.

    But I guess the real question is . . . when is music "bad"?
