Welcome to our first Collaboration Challenge!

For this event lyricists and musicians will be paired up to create a song together. Whether you have been in the forum for years or 1 day, this is an opportunity for members to work and create something together while having a good time. There will be no scores or rankings. It is about trying something new and having fun.

THE DETAILS:

Each team can determine the best method for collaboration: lyrics first vs. music first. Either lyricist, musician, or both can perform vocals.

Each team will have 5 weeks to create a song.

**You can write about anything you desire, BUT The song must contain a non-musical sound (ie, animal sound, chainsaw, baby crying (please no – lol), motorcycle, thunder, rain, toilet flushing (Hmm), etc).
_________________________________________
Sign up: Today through May 22nd
Team Announcement: May 23rd
Post Songs: June 27th
_________________________________________

Post any questions in this thread or PM me.

You can SIGN UP by replying to this thread. Indicate if you are a lyricist or musician, or if you would be either. Those who sign up as either will be assigned as a lyricist or musician based on need to make a pair.

Let’s have some fun!
Andrea

Yes, count me in. I'll go for music. If I'm teamed up with a lyricist I'd prefer that they come up with the words first. But I'm flexible. Looking forward to it.:)

I'm in for music. I haven't done a collaboration since I've been here.
I came close one time, but I chickened out.
I have three songs with music completed. Just need some words to go with them.
Destiny, Death, or Dream. Anyone interested?

Hi Sam, It is awesome you are in for music. After the sign up period is over, Owen and I will assign the teams. I am sure there will be someone very happy to work with you :)

Who else is up for a challenge?

So far we have 8 (see the main post for details), but there is plenty more room.

Sign up. Let's make some songs!

Great idea. Count me in!
I'm a lyricist and musician (guitar).
For this, I'm game to do just one or the other.

Just wanted to pop in and say that I think this challenge thing is a really good idea. I think I'll sit this one out because I've never collaborated before and I'm slow, so don't wanna drag anyone down. I'd be interested in stuff like this in the future though. Sounds like fun!

Hi Taylor,

This is meant to be something 'new' to try. There are no winners - it is all for fun. I was also hoping that it would be a way for members to get to know each other. What better way than working together and talking about each other's works/songs.

This is a great opportunity for lyricists to work with a musician and hear their words with music.

If you are not ready, NP. I am happy you would like to try other challenges in the future. If you decide to jump in- I will be happy with that too :)

Enjoy,
Andrea

Count me in, lyrics. I’ve had an idea about the very thing you suggest with the sound for a while. I’ve just never gotten around to it. Mike

Great to have you in Mike!

I've had the pleasure of working on a number of collaborations over the years and each one has been different. Sometimes I've been offered a lyric and asked to deliver a final product. Other times I've been heavily involved in the lyric writing, and my songwriting partner has been equally keen to participate in the music. Still others it has started with the music. Each time, and each person, has been a different experience. Part of the challenge is to find out how to get the best from yourself and your songwriting partner!

I have collaborated with Owen on several occasions in the past so I feel we should be paired with others since we already have a feel for how the other works. I’ll gladly work with him if that’s how it comes out, but just thought I’d throw it out there.

Cool! I was hoping you'd sign up, Mike.

Thanks, Sam. Tbh I was asked or I would not have known about it. Busy coaching baseball and don’t write much anymore, but I’ll give it a go.

So glad you are in Mike. We will do our best to team up members who have not worked together before.

To all those who haven't signed up -there are still 3 days left to join in! Meet other members, learn new things and have fun.

We have 2 members willing to do music or lyrics, so don't hesitate to take part in this challenge.
