That took me six hours :-D For the curious, it's constructed more or less like an actual fugue. For the most part, voices enter at the end of the first sentence and in the cycling order of Voice 1, Voice 2, and Voice 3. There's a moment of augmentation in Voice 3 and a couple pedal points. And, of course, the obligatory (not) Amen at the end.
The subtext here is, if you add to the "composition," please do so very carefully, because the thing isn't random at all -- which is why it took me so dang long. Procrastination is a lovely thing though... (And thanks to Alksub for adding those categories!)

- This is totally impressive. I'm sure it looks fairly random to someone who doesn't know anything about it the musical form, but it's fabulous if you do. 220.127.116.11 07:37, 13 March 2008 (UTC)
edit The actual text
If you don't feel like picking it apart, here's the three-sentence definition of a fugue I came up with.
"A fugue is a polyphonic piece of music based on a theme, called the "subject," which is presented in each voice in turn. The fugue was a prevalent form of composition in the Western canon in the 16th and 17th centuries, and was often written for the organ. The art of fugue-writing is exemplified in the work of Bach, Handel, Corelli, Fux, and others."

- Wow, this is one of the best articles I've seen here! Have you ever herd of Tom Johnson's Riemann-Oper? I think you'll love it. --WiMu 20:33, 19 July 2007 (UTC)
- P.S. I'm missing a longer stretto like this tiny Amen at the end :-)

A friend of mine caught some repeated notes. Not sure how that happened. I'll fix it later. -- The Realms of Gold 23:43, 2 November 2007 (UTC)
edit IT NEEDS MORE EPISODES.
It needs episodes. Episodes are "subject-free" passages. It only has one episode, the coda, aka the obligatory (not) amen at the end. Also, add moar stretto. And augmentated subjects. And inversed subjects. And countersubjects. Also, nice article. Mashedpotatowithsomegravy 13:11, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
Hahaha, OK! I'm about to go home for the summer, so I'll work on it when I get a chance, hopefully soon :-) Also, whoever added that picture... is a genius. -- The Realms of Gold 21:52, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
