QAWM 2016

So this was brought to my attention during the amazing x-mas compilation and since I enjoyed the deadline (man I suck at getting ideas arranged in an efficient manner) I thought I will give it a try for January!
I know it's kinda cheating but I do have a couple ideas in session view I will be working on
Anyone else interested?
Also what are the parameters in terms of out put? Like a dozen or more in a month?
Cheers

Re: QAWM 2016

A month is going to be impossible on my end.

I was hoping we could have something like a single track in a month. I just don't have time for more, but am interested in something like this. How about specifying a genre to make it interesting? Winner gets voted on and sets genre for the next round or something similar.

I'll be lucky if I finish a single track in January, so that's my goal as well.

Re: QAWM 2016

Cool no problem there I just know I am super slow at arranging once I have my ideas in session view so I will aim for 10 to kick myself in the arse and see how she goes!

Re: QAWM 2016

There will be a one-track each QAWM comp here this year.
I dislike setting genre because it forces people to write crap music from scenes they have no interest in which just results in a lot of very mediocre and generic tunes that nobody really wants to hear.

: fair point, better to be inclusive rather than have people drop out b/c they don't like the genre

Hopefully I have 10 tracks ready to not make it on the comp instead of just one this time

Re: QAWM 2016

I'd love to take part in this but can't imagine getting anything finished in that amount of time. Is there any particular length of album? Or could I make a 3 track EP or such? Kinda wanting to just improvise keyboards over ambient synths rather than spending ages on something!

It's one track per person per QAWM challenge..

..unless I'm mistaken, that's only one track and you have 3 months to produce it..and if you can't do a track in that time frame, then perhaps your in the wrong place and it's time to find a new hobby.

One track per participant, right? Not 10.

Re: QAWM 2016

Yeah sure but I wanted to try out and do 10 for myself! Cuz I always bottleneck at the arrangement and I wanted to try and force myself out of that!

Meh..I did 10 in 14 days a while back..it's a bit over-rated if you ask me.








Yeah..I know..that makes me sound like some kind of pompous dick..but it's true..I DID do 10 track is 14 days..guess the force was well and truly awakened that month.

The thing to remember is you're supposed to have fun..not end up feeling crap because you failed to do it..or pissed off at yourself because you produced stuff you end up thinking is sub-par. While it's true we're supposed to push ourselves doing this, we should only do it if we're going to enjoy it..and one track in the month isn't going to kill anyone..EVERYONE can produce one track in 30 days, seriously...no sweat.

Trust me I am far from stressed about it it's not a no fail task!
Just trying to improve my personal workflow that's all!
I actually get more annoyed when I end up taking my time and usually get sick of my tracks that I listen to for a long time while trying to work on them! So a bit of forced deadline is maybe a good way to work into it!
