Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC065 May 2020 - Mix Round 2 until 01-JUN-2020 23:59 UTC+2/CEST

Hi Cameron, Here’s my R2 submission WAV: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1tstkfK6JQRGGnl7HCf6dEmrKS-3jEsVQ/view?usp=sharing (Integrated loudness = -16.62 LUFS) As a substitute for a direct discussion, I listened and read your comments to those who managed to get to the round 2. Very good points ther...

Oh, I like this so much, full marks as always for your vocals and such a good song – Thanks, now I got strength for next month's challange however, where is my metal and where is my funk?? I guess they were buried under the garbage produced by my hasty stupidity. But next month I will read the task...

Re: SONGWRITING COMPETITION - SWC033 May 2020 - Voting until 01-JUN-2020 23:59 UTC+2/CEST

I LOVE the time sig switch - it's the reverse of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, with the chorus part in 3/4 instead of 4/4). Thanks for comments. The Beatles is full of time signature changes. Such a treasure chest to study. One of my favorites in that area is ”All you need is love”. It feels so si...

Re: SONGWRITING COMPETITION - SWC033 May 2020 - Voting until 01-JUN-2020 23:59 UTC+2/CEST

No, that was one things: "a production in the so called "Avant-garde Metal"/Funk Metal genre" Which was explained by MrFox: "But the genre is basically nothing more than a blend of Experimental and Progressive Rock/Metal mixed with Funk elements. " So two genres, and there should be switches betwee...

Re: SONGWRITING COMPETITION - SWC033 May 2020 - Voting until 01-JUN-2020 23:59 UTC+2/CEST

One criterion for my system of calculation of points was that I was expecting to hear both 1) funk and 2) hard rock elements within song. If I felt that one or both of those genre elements were missing or were not there clearly enough, I dropped some points. What I see are two different styles " GE...

Of course I'm not questioning your voting or your analysiz, @Olli H :) What i don't understand, from a language point of view, is this: "The submission that had only other element /.../ : One submission had neither style in my opinion /.../ Is one ore more words ommited? What does "only other eleme...

Re: SONGWRITING COMPETITION - SWC033 May 2020 - Voting until 01-JUN-2020 23:59 UTC+2/CEST

I don't quite get this, what you mean? I explained and motivated my voting decisions in each comment quite clearly. Those which I put to first places, matched best the music examples that were given in this post: https://mix-challenge.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=7614#p7614 I admit that my knowledge o...

Re: SONGWRITING COMPETITION - SWC033 May 2020 - Voting until 01-JUN-2020 23:59 UTC+2/CEST

Olli H ”I’m going crazy as I get older” - is kinda a cool song but I wonder if it is a) on-theme and b) entirely original work. I like that it is a traditional song - just good Rock. The idea is cool but something in the execution lacks that spark - I assume from focusing on technicalities over pas...

Re: SONGWRITING COMPETITION - SWC033 May 2020 - Voting until 01-JUN-2020 23:59 UTC+2/CEST

The challenge of this competition was to make a song that blends elements from both Funk and Hard Rock/Metal and that switches the genre clearly several times. For voting, that was my main criterion. The task was clear, and rules are rules. Although I personally failed to match the task, I still tak...

Re: SONGWRITING COMPETITION - SWC033 May 2020 - Submissions until 24-05-2020 23:59 UTC+2/CEST

The challenge of this month was to make ”a blend of Experimental and Progressive Rock/Metal mixed with Funk elements”. I think I managed to match that. I also added many tempo changes 3/4 => 4/4 => 3/4. Theme of this month: ”Madness Rising” Day by day, I’m getting older. Here’s another song as theme...
