Some running throughlines I observed...
  • Many of them focus on the lead vocal performance, including a difficult melody with lots of space for the vocalist to belt.

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Four "Carte Blanche"

But the Bond movie songs are basically just songs written in the style of the performers who made them. Except there is a Bond book called “Carte Blanche” so the story is already written. So write a song in the style of Frankie Big Face which is inspired by the book Carte Blanche. As Ujnhunter's po...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Three "Rear Window"

Looking forward to my walk and listen today. All the lyrics look really great. Reading through I realised in my haste to put something together I forgot to put put in a mention to a rear window in my lyrics, whoopsees. If I was having a driving test I would have failed :( It's not an explicit requi...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Two "Chupacabra"

It's time for... Balance Lost liner notes The song contains two identical copies of the same synth+patch (the second one can be heard adding some twinkly bits in the chorus) and the drum machine. I could probably have programmed the synths to be played all on one module, but since the judges have sa...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Zero "This is Fine"

I'm sure this is of little interest to anybody but I rewrote the infamous second verse of my entry, so here's the new one. There's also a tiny bit of percussion added at the end.

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Two "Chupacabra"

I also have a question for the judges/Niv. I made 2 different versions of my song, i.e. the second one is a completely different recording, a cover version if you will. Would it be acceptable to submit the second one as a shadow entry? I am aware that there is potential for this to colour people's ...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Two "Chupacabra"

You can make a pretty full sound with one synth patch so I hope that the result doesn't sound like cheating to the judges. It really is just one synth patch; just with parts going on in multiple octaves. I'm thinking this is fine because the Dresden Dolls example has a full sound with the piano. My...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Zero "This is Fine"

Since we're doing liner notes... I don't often do gng songs and I'm not brave enough to take this approach in later rounds so I thought Round 0 was probably a safe place to give it a go. Clearly I was wrong on that front, so I'll have to rely on actually having a good song this time instead of my us...

Who's Glow Worm? Digging that one.

Is anyone else getting anxious about not making the cut? I'm sure we'll be talking about the great Nur Ein XV Round Zero massacre for years to come.
