Nur Ein XIV

Post by Niveous » Wed Mar 27, 2019 12:10 pm

Welcome to Nur Ein XIV!

The Nur Ein is an eight round song competition. In each round, the participants are given a song title and a mandatory challenge and are given a week in which to finish that song. Then this year's group of Nur Ein Judges (TBA) will listen to the songs and rate them from best to worst. Each round whittles down the field until we are left with only 1 competitor. Creativity x Skill x Time Management = Nur Ein!

Nur Ein XIV will begin on Monday, April 22nd with Round Zero. Round Zero is the way you enter the competition. The participants will have until April 29th at 12:01AM (Eastern Daylight Time) to create a song from the title and complete the challenge. When a competitor completes a song, it is to be e-mailed to nurein.sidefight which is a gmail address. The songs will then be posted at the Nur Ein website (http://nurein.songlander.com) and the next title and challenge will be announced at the same time.
The Judges will have the next two days to listen to the songs. They will rank the songs from best to worst. If there are more than 25 entries into Round zero, the judges will eliminate the lowest ranked competitors until we reach 25.

Here's the schedule:

Round 0:
April 22-April 29
Judging April 29 & 30
<X> bands, <X-25> eliminations

Round 1:
April 29-May 6
Judging May 6 & 7
25 bands, 5 eliminations

Round 2:

Round 3:

Judging May 20 & 21
16 bands, 4 eliminations

Round 4:

Judging May 27 & 28
12 bands, 4 eliminations

Round 5:

Judging June 3 & 4
8 bands, 3 eliminations

Round 6:

Judging June 10 & 11

Final Round:
June 10-June 17
Voting June 17 & 18
2 bands, 1 elimination

The final round is a battle between the two remaining competitors with the votes of the eliminated competitors and the Nur Ein Judges choosing the winner (one vote per "act," whether you're a band or a solo competitor; if you're a duo, trio, quartet, quintet, or more, you'll need to discuss internally how to allocate that one vote).

The game is on. Nur Ein!!!!!!!!!!!

Now is the time for people to start getting prepared. The website logistics need to get figured out. And the judges need to get chosen.

Nur Ein!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey, I have seemingly lost my ability to stick and unstick posts. Would someone do the honors?

Nice. :)

Sticky issue resolved.

Good to see the LPs ready.

Still need a few folks to take on the role of judges.

Don't know if I'll be a judge or not as LWRG may be competing.

Hey, if you really need someone message me on Facebook Niv. I'm not that great with reviews, but I'm pretty reliable. Either way, looking forward to hearing the songs again this year.

A reminder: if you’re entering a song for Nur Ein, remember to do an ID fir the listening party and send me a link. It can be as simple as your band name and ‘You’re listening to Nur Ein’, or something more complex, as Paco del Stinko and others have done over the years.

I’m working on elements for the shows, so sooner is better than later. Thanks!
