Okay, here is an idea I threw together this morning. If you want to use this as the basis for another contest, then please comment below and we can start it later this week (give Dek a chance to get his finalised). If there is anything needing adjusted or changed, just let me know and we can get the track fixed before the contest starts. Cheers https://soundcloud.com/moodman-1/breathless-07032017-1115/s-4Y4I2
digisabio posted a topic in Collaboration RequestsHere is a very different and interesting collaboration idea. NRK, Norway's public broadcaster, recently released the rules for its Melodi Grand Prix 2015 (http://fido.nrk.no/54f6f3040ee480e2ea9fe2d9ed6f3aa2942beae7bbbb72e10d799ccb1a1b8a8b/pamelding2015.pdf - it's in norwegian, but Google Translator helps a lot). For those who don't know it, it is a big television show where they choose the song that will compete at the Eurovision Song Contest. As happened last year, they will allow songwriters from any nationality to take part. So, anyone can write a song and send to them. The jury then listens to every song and chooses a few for the TV show. If your song is chosen, they have the right to select a new singer to perform it live, probably a norwegian one. I've participated before, but never made it to the live show. Last year, they received around 600 songs and had to choose only 15. So it is pretty tough competition. What is my general idea? I can mostly contribute with lyrics and melody. I'm not a good singer and I don't have much experience playing instruments, so I don't think I can help a lot with the recording itself, if we want to do something at a more "professional" level. Regarding style/themes, I don't have any preferences. In projects like this, I usually find a singer, first, and then write something that fits him/her. In this case, I think we can do anything, there is no "pre-concept" here. Who do I need? - Someone who can create and play music (the "backing track"). It doesn't have to be an experienced producer (but it can, if you are avaliable ), it can be just someone who can play guitar. As long as it fits the song and sounds good, that's perfect. - A singer. If he/she wants, he/she can also contributes with the songwriting, of course. Just remember that this is only about recording a demo song. If the song ends up being selected, NRK may pick a new singer, so there is no long-term compromise here. - Other songwriters? I can write the song by myself, if no one shows up, but I think it would be cool to collaborate with other songwriters, as well. Getting different opinions, building some synergy... There is a lot of room for ideas here. Whens and Hows? We have to create, record and send the song by September 1st. That means we don't have a lot of time, so we should start as soon as possible. All the songwriters will be credited as songwriters (of course ), so the rights will be shared equally. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask. You can also send me a personal message, if you prefer. Looking forward to see who wants to join this!
