Re: SONGWRITING COMPETITION - SWC038 October 2020 - Submissions until 24-10-2020 23:59 UTC+2/CEST

Just keep things interesting for ideally more than 3:30 to 4:00 minutes (though no worries if it's a bit shorter). This is a little bit unclear, I'm afraid. If it's more than 4:00 minutes, then it's automatically more than 3:30 minutes. So why mention 3:30? May I ask: what are the recommendations r...

Re: SONGWRITING COMPETITION - SWC033 May 2020 - Winners announced

A Future In Noise - Dr Andrew: On first listening, I was highly reminded of Michael Stipe (R.E.M.) while listening to the vocals. A very similar tone, which fit the lyrics quite well. Although they are a bit off-beat in places. Technically, the production has a bit too much reverb for my taste. If ...

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

When I rate the entries, I pay more attention to what I like, personally, than the grade of fulfillment of the mission. I think that the composers making stuff pleasant listening to, should know this. There is no problem with that but most of your comments doesn't tell anything only that if you lik...

Regarding mix, since it is only mp3 that for sure have some problems because of compression, like everything above 16kHz is cut out feels balanced. Only slight decrease is sub and low frequencies from 40 to 100Hz could make it bit better. Statistics: Max momentary loudness -9,6 LUFS Max short-term ...

You have a great voice and showed it off to good effect here, some nice harmonies and cool backing sections ... Thanks! I guess it's obvious there are two male singers. At least it's obvious to me, and I guess it's obvious to everybody else (but I don't really know). It's me, anyway, alone in the f...

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.
