I've had a nasty cold that made me hoarse but today I felt much better and was able to sing!  Not well but I really enjoyed being able to practice at lunch. :)

FEBRUARY 2018 CHALLENGE - MODES
« on: February 10, 2018, 01:25:28 PM »
Its not what you think!!

So I had thought that it would be a good idea to go for a technical challenge, as I don't understand theory and anything that would force me to learn would be worthwhile.  However, even trying to set the challenge blew my mind so I drew back and the challenge is:

Write and record a new song that links to mode(s) in some way. 

Lots of options - modes of transport, fashion etc.  You don't have to include the word but if you don't please explain the link when you post.

Any style, any time signature, any length (within reason).

No turnips are to change hands between entrants or voters - any evidence of root vegetable abuse will lead to immediate disqualification.

Up load to Soundcloud as usual by midnight wherever you are on 28th February 2018.

That's it! Good luck everyone.

Interesting concept.....

Not sure I like the anti turnip rule though  :P

My "studio" is getting a slight renovation so we'll see if I get it back together but some of the changes will help my recordings. I'm excited!

Modes? I like it! So, if we did a community effort, would that be a com-mode?  Hmm, my mind's in the toilet tonight.

Okay, modes it is. I'll have to mull over that one a bit.

I’m 98% done.

I tried something different I’d never done for a challenge before. I’ll tell all after the complete has finished, otherwise it might distract the listener 😆

So, can I use musical modes? I'm trying to improve my theory knowledge anyway.

Just to verify, this can be about a "mode of" something. So, a mode of transportation, mode of thought, etc., but doesn't have to necessarily mention the word "mode", correct?

I made a schoolboy error.

After listening back to my rough mix - after about the tenth time, I realised I sing the word “node”. Not “mode”.

In the context of the song it makes little difference. But in accordance to the specific nature of the challenge criteria, then it’s a bit of a blunder.

My wife thought I said "mowed".  She commented that it was a rather specific theme this month!
