Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Zero "Trial By Fire"

I'm sorry I can't do it this year. But for the best of reasons: my current musical project streams shows live on a weekly basis and takes a huge amount of creative prep time. Also working on a new record. I'll follow along!

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Seven

Sorry I couldn't be present more as a performer or commenter this time. I've been really busy. Here are my Round 7 reviews, in order from most to least favorite: Strange Love - This is the kookiest entry with a hook I can sink my teeth into. It’s funny, it’s got attitude, great synth textures.

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Two

Zed - Impressive. Did you play that or was that notation/midi? I just wrote it out on notation software and the converted it to MP3. I would've liked to record it as a TTB track, but also realized that the high tenor part probably needs to be rearranged a bit to suit my voice. Too bad, because when...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Two

Sorry, folks. I started a fourth job this week and that killed the time I had to do this. All I have to submit are the insanely meta lyrics and the piano track that I was using for an A cappella arrangement, which I suppose is still pretty neat. So unless a few other people completely fail to submit...

Re: NUR EIN! Tired of Talking lyrics

I'm tired of songs that talk about a song because I've never meta song, or a song about a song, or a song about a song about a song about a song, or a song about a song about a song about a song a bout a song that I didn't despise.

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Zero

There's a good chance I'm out this year. It happens every once in a while. We're repainting, spring cleaning, and I'm currently working most evenings and Sundays from 9am - midnight. I *will* be able to judge, though, even if I can't review in depth every week. And if the planets line up, I could th...

RockOperathon?

I'm trying gauge who would be interested in a Sidefight in which players have a certain amount of time to write and record a mini rock opera. I imagine something where a list of titles are posted, so that the players can pick an option that's most inspiring for them, and then everyone has a certain ...

I also want at least one vague challenge with a lot of possibility. Like: "Toilet." There could be so much fun with a challenge like that.

Re: Nur Ein XI- Round Six

But this song? It deserved the run of ones in the scoring. See, when I scored for judging back in the day, I think I had an "indescribable charm" category, which mean that a song could score low on lyrics, music, the challenge, etc, but have a high scoring for reason that I can't explain....

and you got some songs that kick ass live. (I got to see Ben play live last night and the set included Boilermaker and Million Watts.
