Re: Good Trouble

seemanski now and then I think back to when days were spent finding rules that could be bent I think of all the hours wasted away this way passing time by messing around at the video game arcades I don't think that we should regret living for the moment playing out the strength our heads we might h...

Re: The Bad, The Ugly, and The (Good Trouble prefight)

I'm in and I'm trying my hand at synthwave (it seemed apt for the challenge), probably failed miserably but we shall see.

Re: Last warning: (Please Scream Inside Your Heart reviews)

So, I thought I would give this reviewing thing a crack. I always feel a bit out of my depth doing this kind of thing, but now I am thinking if you don't try, you never know. So here goes ....

Re: Nur Ein XV Final Round "Pistols At Dawn"

Finally, I know really late, sorry :( got around to listening to your podcast. FYI, Grumpy Mike you are right and my name is Mike Szymanski, I am really lazy when coming up with aliases.

Thanks for your constructive critism as always. :)

Re: Nur Ein XV Final Round "Pistols At Dawn"

Yay Congrats Jon Eric :) Who'd have thought it, considering after most rounds you were stating this is my last round. Well done to Cavedwellers as they were both great songs worthy of the victory. It's been a great experience for me, thanks for all the love sent my way and the constructive criticism...

Re: Nur Ein XV Final Round "Pistols At Dawn"

I wonder how many of the Round 0 eliminees will remember to vote this year. They get a reminder email right? Glad I just had a quick skim through the forums, I didn't know about this. Strictly speaking I was a round 0 eliminee but came back from the dead. Anyway, I digress. How does this work? I'm ...

Well, I'm stunned and humbled.

But also, I'm never doing a synthpop anthem on a one-week deadline, ever again. That was very time consuming and exhausting.

Cavedwellers, I will see you at the dueling ground.

NUR EIN!!!!!!!
Congrats Jon, yours was also my favourite song of this round.

See-man-ski: +1000 for everything leading up to that acoustic break and then -800 for that acoustic break.
What I took from this, I should definitely do more acoustic breaks :P

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Six "Homestretch"

My first instinct for this was to think, what would tool do? I then realised that I only had 5 days and not 5 years to write a track, so slapped a 3/4 riff under a 6/4 riff and hoped for the best. I think it turned out ok, not particularly happy with my vocals in parts but sod it, it is a song and a...

Re: NUR EIN XV - Homestretch

Homestretch (shadow) by see-man-ski I took a completely different approach to my songwriting for this. I have been watching a music theory for electronic musicians on udemy, just because why not. So, instead of finding a beat and chucking a tonne of guitars on it I created everything using the pian...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Five "North Beach Vampires"

Seemanski, I think you met the challenge too. I never even listen to the examples (although I did have “Black Water” in the front of my mind as an example since I know it so well). But mostly, I was just razzing lunkhead. I mentioned it earlier because I noticed the discrepancy so I wasn’t too surp...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Five "North Beach Vampires"

“If only they had provided examples of what they meant!” Is something someone might say in response to Lunkhead. ;) Not me, but someone. To me examples are there to help you but shouldn't stop you from interpreting it how you see fit. Personally I feel I have met the challenge and I don't think tha...

A great round by everyone, I am starting to feel like a very small fish in a massive sea full of very talented musicians. I figured my time was closing to a close soon and I have a feeling this might be the round I drop off in, I ain't over till its over but I am proud to have gotten this far so if ...

Re: NUR EIN XV - North Beach Vampires

Ok, so this is definitely a departure from my normal style. I figured my days are numbered on this, so why not do something new (what have I got to loose). I saw the challenge "include an a cappella section" and decided to make my whole song the section (I only just managed to resist the temptation...
