Write 10 ten-second songs. Folks usually post them all as one "song" stitched together. Tag your contribution #tenbyten
This challenge has been a favorite of mine as a listener for several years. Last year, I actually gave it a go. This year, I have big plans for it.
EDIT: #10x10 isn't working for some reason. Anyone?
@metalfoot Jan 28
Oh, I like this one! Will do.
@spingo Jan 28
I enjoyed this last year and will try again!
@cblack Jan 28
I might give this a go... We'll see.
Actually, it'd be a good way to test my new DAW. Hmm...
@regis Jan 28
I had a blast with this one a couple years ago, but it was a lot of work. Still, a lot of my ideas were too thin to be stretched into full songs, so it was nice to do something with them. If time allows, I’ll give this another go.
@evinwolverton Jan 28
Oh damn. That's a lot of song seeds to toss into the same hole. I'm intrigued.
@pcob1993 Jan 28
Hmmmm, it never occurred to me but I'll give it a whirl. I usually write songs of about three hundred hours
@w1n Jan 28
I have done this earlier with eclectic but enjoyable results, will try to do it this year too.
@laotranati Jan 28
Uhhh interesting challenge 😀 We'll see what happens.
@sw1n3flu Jan 28
This is a great challenge.... might have to do one of these again!
@gubna Jan 28
Interesting!! I’m in!
@expendablefriend Jan 30
Hell yes! The best challenge EVER.
@guatecoop Jan 31
I think that I’m in on this. Sounds kinda hard, but fun. What is the topic? I understand that there is a theme that ties them together.
@odilongreen Jan 31
I've done this twice, and found it *hard* both times. I tried to do coherent "concept albums" (the first time about an alien invasion, and the second about the Fyre Festival), and each time it was so difficult to do ten coherent 10-second songs that I almost gave up. Which all means that I'm looking forward to doing it again!
(@guatecoop, you can have a theme or not; it's entirely up to you, and there's nothing assigned (at least in the past), other than doing 10 ten-second songs.)
@andygetch Jan 31
hmmmm.......ideas begin to explode
@mishykatz Jan 31
Oooh this is intriguing to me, I love writing fast. I wanna try 😉
@persaab Jan 31
Probably only challenge I could do sonehow last year. Also try this year do something.
@zecoop Jan 31
I always want to do this one, but never do - Hoping this year!!
@gbg2016 Jan 31
Huh...never saw this one before, but I'd love to give it a go. Thanks!
@steviez Jan 31
Never saw this before, but I am intrigued - gonna try it! The more I think about it, the more I think it'll probably end up sounding like some Prog Rock piece......
@yam655 Jan 31
I did this one year. It is a lot of fun.
@steviez Jan 31
I think the only way I'll achieve this is via a theme.....hmmmm....maybe the Biblical 10 Commandments...but all instrumental......
@cblack Feb 1
I was going to do this for my first song, then found I couldn't find an actual timer on FL Studio Mobile... So until I figure that out, I can't do this challenge. I'll just have to make normal songs. 😀
Unless... Hmm... Maybe there's a stopwatch app I could download?
@sherrycanary Feb 1
@kahlo2013 Feb 1
@sph Feb 1
Maybe this time. Up to now I only managed to write one song being 8 seconds long 😀

I'm thinking hard about this. I think I am writing a musical, or at least 100 seconds of a musical.
@oddaustin Feb 11
Oh wow, I didn't even know this was a thing people were doing.
And I thought I was being so damn original.
@gubna Feb 13
Did another tonight, inching closer to finishing this.
