So, there's a popular thing in another community that I am a member of where once a week, everyone gets together and has one hour to record something and post it on a webpage for people to listen to. A listen party occurs after that one hour, and then people have a week to vote for the best tune. There's a theme every week to model the song after, which usually makes it interesting. It's a truly interesting challenge that tests your creativity in a crunchtime. I've found that it brings out some of the most interesting ideas, and most of the songs on my album started as OHC's. This was my latest one, done on my new Pod HD500 with my new Carvin DC727 tuned to drop A. Since it's a one hour competition, mixing/mastering takes a backseat to the actual composition. http://compo.thasauce.net/files/Nekofrog_-_Solace(OHC127).mp3 I wonder if ss.org would benefit from such a competition?
