In December of 2012, Chris Vaisvil proposed the following:

Assignment 1 - instructions - transcribe the Enigma theme by Edward Elgar into any un12 equal tuning system you wish to use. Goal - it must be recognizable. Assignment 2 - repeat the theme four times - once solo, then harmonized with another line (2 voice), two more lines, and finally 4 lines. Every other parameter is free.

Music notation - Enigma theme

In response came the following short compositions:
