RPM invites musicians to create a whole album of music, 10 songs or 35 minutes, in the month of February. This is not a contest so there is no winner. The challenge functions solely to give musicians a needed push towards finishing original material and help them achieve a sense of satisfaction. The challenge is open to all participants regardless of style, solo artists or groups, country of origin, language or theme.


So, that's basically the gist of it. The rules are:

Produce an album of 10 songs or 35 minutes length

Record the album during the month of February

Deadline is March 1

The album must consist of original material, rather than cover songs.

All songs do not necessarily need to be written during the challenge, but it is encouraged.

Any form of recording is acceptable, from a simple tape recording to full studio production.

Working on final tweaks after midnight on March 1 is acceptable, as long as you don't sleep.


So I thought this would be a cool idea for UGers to do

I'll give it a shot. I have about 4-5 already written/recorded so that'll help. But idk how busy I'll be in Feb, school starts up then.
#8
I'll probably never find the time, but what the heck - I'll sign up, for now.
Hey, look. Sigs are back.

I would probably end up recording a bunch of really bad shit just for the sake of recording shit.

Record a song about Santa making his privilege and checking it twice.

who cares

anything can be recorded

I figured I'd make sure since it's not strictly recording.

even if you are using vst instruments

the end product is still "recorded" on a file

#21

I'm already working on an album, but I don't want to rush it and sacrifice quality to get it done in 2 months, otherwise I'd be totally down for this...

Hey everybody

i have no clue what kind of album to write

If I actually manage it, I might try to do kind of a concept album. Maybe that could get you going.

I'd sign up but I already spent August and December working on one I'm releasing later this week, so I want a break Plus college starts back up then.

Going to keep an eye on this though; the 30-day album challenges always turned up interesting results.

I'm in, but I have no recording equipment, so the whole album will be written in musescore

I think she prefers them to be fried rather than fertilized like Flynt Flossy.

For what it's worth, I hadn't finished any when I entered a nearly identical challenge years ago, and I managed to pull that one off

I'm unsure how I'll manage as my band are currently in the songwriting process until the end of Feb. Just have to make my RPM thing a completely different genre so no ideas O have for it are ones that could have served the band lol. Being preoccupied thinking of stuff for us though may mean I won't have many ideas for this
Hey, look. Sigs are back.

I've got a couple nights alone in a hotel room to figure out how to program drums and make them sound decent. If I can do this, I'll throw my name in the hat.
