The challenge has begun, you may join in at any time during the course of the event.

Time Left

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes people, it is back by greatly little demand!

Can you cope with life working for a major label where they send you out on tour with an album that took you 4 years to write? And when you return, they say they are giving you 4 weeks to write and record an album before they send you out on the road again.

Enough of that..

The aim of this is to write and record an album in the space of 30 days. This was done in April and a handful of excellent people managed to complete it. But I feel this thread will motivate people to see it through.

It is not a competition, it is simply a project to test yourself and better yourself as a musician in terms of creative consistency and song writing...and to give you something to do for a bit of the summer holidays!

The challenge starts on Thursday 1st July 00:00 GMT and ends on Saturday 31st July 23:59 GMT

Die Regeln:

- Must be done in the timeframe of 30 days

- Completely new material, ideas for previous uncompleted songs may be used.

- You may have other people on your songs, but make sure the song is still mostly by you.

- No Covers

- Minimum of total length of album is 20mins

- Minimum number of songs is 3

- Any genre(s) you want

- Recording quality must be the best you can make it.

- Methods of submission will be announced towards the end of the month.

Feel free to ask any questions in this thread, but there are other forums on this site regarding recording and songwriting.


When the album is done at the end of the month, upload the songs to your UG profile, then put them into an album. I will create a thread will links to your albums.


Please sticky this thread if you plan on participating!!

I'm still finishing up my song from June haha, and I'm supposed to something for the video game album, but the June 30 day song challenge was great fun so I really want to give it another ago with an entire album. No promises, but for now count me in.

IN!

What I plan to do is do all this in GarageBand, which means it will be kinda shitty quality and I won't be able to have wobs. If I want them I'll do them elsewhere I guess. Hopefully I can come up with upwards of 40 minutes of material, then what's good, I can re-synth and make awesome.

But this is my thread...


Actually, I wont even be on much at all in the next month, so thank you, and will pretty much have a crappy old keyboard to use, but I will try and write something still. I might be able to record it, but I don't know.

Sign me up, just in case.

Shut your noise, I was 18 when I had mine. About 30 seconds later the girl was sick on me. I'm not sure if the two events were related.
#28
Count me in too.
I need some motivation to start writing songs so hopefully this will do it.
#29
Starting my first song now Goign for a EITS post-rock sound with maybe some singing

Although it wont have drums or bass, im limited on that factor, guitar piano and maybe voice only

The Album, I plan, is going to be a sort of concept album of sorts, on a beach from Sunrise (The first Song) To Sunset (The last song) Might add some waves sounds to help it flow

Is it against the rules to have a guest spot (say guest vocals) if you wrote the part for the person to perform?

Last time I think it was okay, but to make sure, do what I'll do and have more music than you need in case it doesn't count toward your total.
