ACA-DUEL: NATIONAL ANTHEM CHALLENGE

ACA-DUEL: ORIGINAL SONG CHALLENGE

The 2019 Aca-Duel challenge is an original song. Each Open Division group must create and perform their own original song for the Aca-Duel that includes the following elements:

  • The 2018 word of the year “Toxic”
  • The following chord: “minor9”
  • The “Millennial Whoop” (a melodic pattern alternating between the 5th and 3rd notes of a scale).
  • The following drum fill rhythm from “In the Air Tonight” by Phil Collins.

No mash-ups, medleys or use of any other songs are allowed during the Aca-Duel.

We encourage all the groups to be creative with their Aca-Duel song and to play to their strengths.
