For all of the songs that Ives did compose, there were a few he left unfinished.  In the spirit of the Ives Vocal Marathon, we thought it would be a fun experiment to post one of those unfinished songs, entitled Smoke, here at IvesVocalMarathon.com and allow YOU to take a shot at completing it! 
Click here to make your submission or to see others' submissions.  The best one as determined by Mr. Neely Bruce and his fellow judges will be played in the Ives Vocal Marathon itself!
