November Album Writing Month (NAWM) 2014
 
OK so only a month to go before NAWM, the fourth and final QAWM of the year. (that's gone quickly)
So finish up your AAWM mix if you're still working on that and get your ideas, samples and patches ready for the next one.

Might take part in it ! Are there rules to it ? Can we use half finished projects or do we have to start from scratch ?

You're only cheating yourself, but how would I ever know?
The idea is just to get busy, so if you need that kind of a kickstart/head start then do what you need to do.

Well I'm going to get hype about this.

I know I've been saying that a lot lately. But really, I'm about to be done with this film I've been doing music/voiceover work for, my bands are going to be relatively chill, and there's no overbearing obligations. Plus I just made a shit ton of money. Last AAWM I was getting used to my MPC, making a keyboard work, finagling my new live set up... while actually working for once. Just relatively intense.

But yeah, been loving the Clap!Clap! Tayi Bebba album that came out recently so I'm going to be chopping African field recordings into the MPC. Also, just purchased me some JJOS so I'm going to actually start cutting samples so I can have a bunch of patches to work with during November.

My creative framework ideas at the moment are only hardware, samples like cray, field recordings, and no commercial sample packs at all...

Just got done sampling all of the cheese that is the rhythm section of my Roland D-10. If anyone is feeling some cheese samples for NAWM, send me a message.

This time I'll really follow through. This time. This time will be different, self. You'll see.

Serious note: I'm game and I hope I don't quit early on. Even so, I always love the output of everyone else on here, so bring it the fuck on. Everyone experiments a little more with new shit and I hope the month of Nov won't be any different. Nawm, nawm, nawm.

To reiterate, the best part is that it's really no competition, but rather enforcing some limits and creating a challenge for YOU for a month. Hope you join in!

Me and Lebeux are thinking of combining NAWM with the beat battles for this one QAWM.
Previous BB winners will be asked to provide stems and some rules (as per usual BB) as inspiration for anyone interested.
It's not a hard and fast rule and normal QAWM "rules" still stand as usual.
If you're happy doing your own thing that's great, if you feel you need a starting place I'm hoping the BB winners can provide one for you.
Let me know what you reckon.

I am working on tracks tonight. See it's really November, (mind jedi trick), so that way I will be ready for NAWM. The things I have to do to avoid procrastination. I have to work before I procrastinate, if that makes sense! ;)

A friend of mine commissioned me a 40 minutes cassette of old-school Italo-Industrial, so I might be game.

Re: November Album Writing Month (NAWM) 2014
 
What is italo style industrial?

I'm not going to say if I am or am not attempting this. I did upload a lot of my last QAWM stuff though.

Re: November Album Writing Month (NAWM) 2014
 
could also use the stuff in the abandoned track thread

Re: November Album Writing Month (NAWM) 2014
 
I'm in! To do an EP, anyway - the EP I was doing for AAWM (or was it MAWM?) and never finished. Those tracks have been sitting around for ages half-finished.

Re: November Album Writing Month (NAWM) 2014
 
Would a collective effort betray the spirit of QAWM? I don't mean a compilation of tracks by different artists, more along the lines of an artist collective. Say 8 people agree on a concept and work with each other's material. Maybe that's even harder to achieve than making an album on your own, maybe it works as pressure to actually do something, I dunno...

Re: November Album Writing Month (NAWM) 2014
 
I'm not against the idea but I reckon you'd be hard pushed to get it done in a month.

lebeux 14-10-2014 01:01 PM

Re: November Album Writing Month (NAWM) 2014
 
You're probably right yeah.

Muse-ic 14-10-2014 01:16 PM

Re: November Album Writing Month (NAWM) 2014
 
^^^I think it's a great idea. :) Maybe a separate project with a longer running time, like 2-3 months?

lolirl 14-10-2014 01:17 PM

Re: November Album Writing Month (NAWM) 2014
 
Yeah, that's more like what I was thinking.
Interested in running it Muse-ic?
