Hello, are you interesting?

May 6, 2010 2:41 PM

Be my guest, and contribute to a track I have to turn in before the weekend is over!

I've made it to round 3 in SongFight!'s Nur Ein V, and the non-optional challenge for the submission due Sunday at 9pm PST is "Bring a guest." Specifically, a guest performer of some kind, with points for how "interesting" they are.

I thought it might be "interesting" to have a few of you folks (as many as are willing, really) provide something for the track. This is on short notice, and I'm still writing the song (mandatory title: "97"), so logistically it'll be really simple:

1. You MeMail me that you're interested, and include an email address to send the scratch track to;

2. By noon on Saturday, I'll send you a scratch track and lyrics, including lyrics for backing vocals, which will also be scratched in.

3. You listen to the song in headphones, sing/play along with the countdown so I can sync things up, then send me back the recording you made by noon on Sunday.

You should include details about the instrument you played (if any) and an interesting fact or two about yourself (musical or otherwise.)

Don't worry about how much of a contribution you make -- if you record a single note and send it back, I'll make use of it in some way. If you record an entire track's worth, that's fine too, but (given the timeline) the number of contributors and interesting facts are probably more important.

The technical specs of what you send me don't really matter, so long as you sung/played along with the countdown so I can sync it up.

Oh, and I should say: you can either duplicate something that's already in the scratch track (and I'll swap myself out in favor of your contribution) or add something entirely new.

Nearly 24 hours later, nobody's mailed, and given the tight deadline I've rounded up another contributor elsewhere -- so please ignore this post (and mods, feel free to kill it.)

You've been Memailed, I'm in. And no, it's not too late!

Ah, nuts. I would have liked to participate. I was big into SongFight like 5 or 6 years ago and then we ended up drifting apart. Maybe I'll go there right now and check out the weekly fight.
