This will be a battle of musical composition. Me and my opponent will both compose a small piece and the voters will listen and decide which they think is best.
Rules:
1. The composition cannot be longer than 45 seconds.
2. My opponent can write music for any instrument(s) (I will be writing for string orchestra)
3. My opponent can use just about any tool to write his music (I will be using noteflight)
4. The piece must be YOUR OWN.

Any questions will be answered in the comments. Round 1 is for acceptance, in Round 2 we will give a link to our pieces and the voters may decide.

May the best Mozart win!

I accept. Though my work? Or is other fanfic work is good?

There is my piece. To listen, click the "play" button in the bottom left.

Yes, the work must be YOUR OWN. As you can see, I wrote every single note from scratch.

In comments, my opponent provided Youtube links to several pieces, but I believe none of those are his.
1) They are all from different Youtube users.
2) One of them is from a game called "Antichristum"
3) Another is all in Chinese (or other Asian language, I do not mean to offend anybody, I just can't tell the difference between the Asian languages).
4) The last is the traditional marching song of British and Canadian military units. I'm sure my opponent did not create this.

I would also like to note that all of the songs my opponent provided are over 45 seconds.

That link to NoteFlights is not working for me.

if you are passionate about your case, then just explain that these votes were improper, mention that you do have proof of composition ownership, that you actually have a voter who viewed both pieces, and say that you cant compromise by posting login details publicly to access the piece and that there is no way to contact the voter to give him the details in private.

I dont know what to say, this is down to you.

Reasons for voting decision: i have heard pros piece, with evidence that the piece is of his own creation. This is far more than what I can say for con whose piece was evidentially not his.

Reasons for voting decision: Con did not follow any of the rules therefore his composition does not count. Pro's link did not work therefore he did not give a composition.
