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?

Oh, I like this one! Will do.

I enjoyed this last year and will try again!

I might give this a go... We'll see.
Actually, it'd be a good way to test my new DAW. Hmm...

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.

Oh damn. That's a lot of song seeds to toss into the same hole. I'm intrigued.

Hmmmm, it never occurred to me but I'll give it a whirl. I usually write songs of about three hundred hours

Hell yes! The best challenge EVER.

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.

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.)

Huh...never saw this one before, but I'd love to give it a go. Thanks!

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 2 weeks
I did this one year. It is a lot of fun.
@steviez 2 weeks
I think the only way I'll achieve this is via a theme.....hmmmm....maybe the Biblical 10 Commandments...but all instrumental......
@cblack 2 weeks
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?

I'm thinking hard about this. I think I am writing a musical, or at least 100 seconds of a musical.

Oh wow, I didn't even know this was a thing people were doing.
And I thought I was being so damn original.
