Stop Making Farms, Start Making Real Music with Songster Sat, Feb 25, 2012 11:00 PM UTC - Bysanger
Imagine, having YOUR music on a Facebook Game for almost a BILLION people to hear!
Kompoz and Mowgli Games have been working on a way to do just that....
Presenting SONGSTER - the first collaborative music creation game on Facebook enabling people to create songs with their friends.
Mowgli Games came to Kompoz a few months ago with an idea to have YOU create songs for SONGSTER - think about it, at any given time there are upwards of 450 MILLION people playing games on Facebook - now YOU can capture that crowd with YOUR music - how's that for promotion and exposure - take that iTunes!!!!!
As part of the beta test, Mowgli Games has uploaded 3 tunes (see below), backing tracks for Kompoz singers to complete. There are examples of 'song-packs' (4 measure snippets of the complete tune), plus the entire track for you to sing to (no explicit lyrics - that goes for you too Kev). This beta test is open to all Kompoz members. We're looking for catchy hooks with simple lyrics - easy to piece together to complete a 'full' tune - the songs are only about a minute long and will be cut up into 4 measure "Song Packs" for game players to use.

A sanger sample for Songster
You can download the tunes here: www.kompoz.com/member/MowgliGames
Once we have the offical launch of SONGSTER, only Kompoz PLUS members will be eligible to submit songs to SONGSTER - membership does indeed have it privileges
But sanger, what do we get for all are hard work?
In addition to your music being heard by MILLIONS of people, each artist will have a profile and get this.... a T-Shirt with your 'band', for the players to wear and when a player posts their song to Facebook, they'll be forever linked to YOUR music. Mowgli Games will also link to Kompoz.com, ReverbNation and your website, your Facebook music page and any other online asset you may have.
Future plans for product placements are in the works as well and with that may come some additional opportunities for you as a SONGSTER artist. For the time being this is a promotional opportunity for YOUR music. Rest assured at this time Kompoz is not collecting a single penny from Mowgli Games (they are a start-up much like Kompoz). Though as the game gains in popularity, we certainly will negociate a piece of the action for YOU and Kompoz
Raf & I both support and endorse our new partner - Mowgli Games - and we hope you will too.
So.... STOP Farming and getting Angry with Birds - start making music on SONGSTER!!!
For all you Facebookers go to www.playsongster.com and enter your backstage pass code: NXSP62 to check it out.

so stop the press. Songster is accepting snippets from Kompozers to get it off the ground? is that what this is saying? well, nobody else is talking. it's a little too quiet in here. ;)

Steve much as you seem to be trying to put your energies into reaching out and i'm not averse to fun... i trust you don't mind feedback..
please could you keep in mind that you essentially are caretaker for people's talents here on kompoz, as much as their short term enjoyment
i'm anxious that pairing up with a game will cheapen our endeavour.. .how about reaching out in more serious ways such as small scale film production houses and think-tanks..i feel the way is not to chase what is popular at the moment, but to carve new paths and thus CREATE the interest. and maybe it is upto us as users to help create these paths.. what do you think?
