love the idea!!! i'd participate for sure...

btw... i have kind of an idea. the theme is something really subjective, and, as people have already said, you can release something you've been working on for a month and say you did it in 1 hour. I think that a good way of making sure people don't cheat was to set a strict rule. Per example: everyone must use a certain tempo.... or even it must start with a clean riff. And that only rule would always change, that way, we could make sure nobody cheats


....just sayin'

I really hope if this happens that the time difference between me and the majority of ss.org users doesnt put me out of the frame for this because I'm really very keen to do this. Maybe it could be a weekly thing?

Well, anyone who did that would be a douche. And they'd be missing the point: What can you do in an hour? Sure, if you win, you get internet ego stroked, but if you come up with something you're proud of in just an hour, then you've improved your composition ability. Which is something to actually be happy about.

Why?

UK evening time is USA morning time and late evening in Australia, seems to be the most logical time to me.

Here's a rubric I guess we can all pretty much agree on:

On Sunday evening, by Greenwich time, or wherever that prime meridian thing is, we'll meet up in the chatroom and a theme will be chosen.

I will come up with the theme, so that I can match it to something I've already written. Maybe this needs to be a quick vote type of deal?

After we get the theme down, we get five minutes to talk it out, then the hour begins.

Hour ends, as I'm sitting pretty on my master composition.

Ten minutes to mix, master, and upload, and then we share links and vote on the winner!

I win.Lots of green bars await me in my future

If you're going to 'like' my posts, give me some rep instead.

I'm interested. It'll be a good way to get feedback on my mixes and practice recording/mixing under pressure.

Bit of a bitch to organise with three time zones though, and Scar Symmetry's got his timezones wrong: It's currently 4:45PM Saturday where I am, but it's 1:45AM Sunday in Brisbane and 11:45AM Saturday in New York. Evening Europe time is early afternoon American time, but "....ing early tomorrow morning" Aussie time.

Ugh, this would work if only we could get rid of the Australians.
So what I'm gathering is that there is no single time that would be ideal for anyone?
I don't see a reason why we couldn't have two contests a day. The Aussies and whoever else might be up as well could start it off, and then another one for Europe and the US and whatever night-owl Aussies want to join?

I hope this isn't coming off as discriminatory

I'm not necessarily into it for the contest aspect, but I love the idea of hearing of the theme and parameters and working within the framework, just to do it. I hadn't realized that you all were talking about trying to do this at structured times.

Being cutthroat about something which is meant to expand one's creativity = dick move, incidentally.

If you don't care enough to research your own question, why should anyone else care more?

Fair =/= cut throat.

The idea was born elsewhere as a competition and if you take that aspect out of it, the incentive is lost. A race is fair if you all start at the same line, that's how competition works. I don't see why you see competition as such a bad thing anyway, as has been said it's just for fun, so if it's fair then great but it's not necessarily essential.

Clarification.

The competition aspect is a big part of it, but on the site where the idea was born, there are lots of people who take part in it just to make people laugh (joke songs) etc. And they usually turn out fantastic. It's not an entirely straight-laced affair. Sometimes the themes are funny, so that gives birth to a funny song.

What if we organized it by continental timezones? Like one person who is willing (and who will organize the whole thing) sits in on these chatrooms or something and then he posts the winners after the whole thing is over on this thread??

i probably sound crazy lmao
