Something very brief about the party
Compos compos.. My Listening Music compo entry didn’t make it to the big screen, so that one will get saved for later use. Big up to T-101 for pushing the change to compo rules that ‘not shown’ entries will not be spread! I missed the actual compo but checking the entries later on, I felt that in comparison to my tune there were at least two inferior entries. But what can you do, the decision is with the jury.
Managed to take part in Fast Music compo too, this year the predefined chords were C#m and F#m and the overall compo quality was rather “meh”. Check out a playlist of entries here.
Style-wise my choice was reggae and the song itself turned out pretty well-balanced in terms of content and duration. I didn’t have time left to whip up any other lead melodies than the accordion, so extending the song just for the sake of making it longer felt like a bad idea. Lead and other song elements got introduced fine as-is, so why bore people to death by looping parts to death?!
