So I've now collaborated on quite a few project's and have enjoyed every second of it. I've looked through tons of project's since I've been here and I must ask, is it often to see project's "sit" for undetermined amounts of time? I do understand that time is valuable and some may not have as much to dedicate than others, I have a limited amount myself. I suppose it doesn't really affect me personally so much but it is disheartening to see a great project begin just to fall into obscurity.

Yeah, that's shit...it's the downside of being enthusiastic... new songs come along and the old ones remain undone since it would need some sustainability to finish them...and the new one is so tempting... damn us artists... damn it ...real jewels get lost..or get stolen easily and done by those who can finish them quite fast cause the basic work is already done.. ..sustainability.. let me announce that the lack of that might be the biggest curse of our times... we "cease the moment" for ourselves and we freaking don't "memento mori" of jewels..like this earth... and many of the incredible songs here.. sorry..but yeah, that's shit...

>damn us artists... damn it This made me laugh ::)) I have always considered kompoz to be like a field of flowers, and if you watch a bee in a field of flowers there is no particular pattern that a bee uses to land on any flower. The shift of the wind? the color? the smell of pollen? the roll of the dice. The newer tunes are more apt to be empty of auditions. So one searches them hoping to feel inspiration and be the first to be accepted.. There are a couple of people here that I will search their back log because I am compatible with this kind of music. It is just the way of it. The thing to do if one has a good potential tune that lay in the closet for a long time .. is post it into community and beg :)

Adult ADD. Saw something shiny. We just have to go through our stuff until something shines for us again.

This is where publishing would come in. A publisher can hear a piece of music and think. "You know who would do really well with this song?" Unfortunately, looking for a publisher takes time away from what we really want to be doing-making music!

Many years back, someone (maybe Raf) mentioned that there were over 250,000 projects on this site. Most of them haven't even pulled in a collaborator, let alone having arrived at completion. Even projects with various collaborators don't necessarily get completed. Part of that maybe due to people new to collaboration. They have specific ideas in mind for their song. Collaborators may contribute ideas so far removed from the original vision that the owner gets discouraged or loses sight of what they had in mind. Collaborating can be a great thing and introduce you to new interpretations. On the other hand, it can be a nightmare when you receive something you cannot unhear or end up dealing with a nutcase. How many people do you know are able to finish most of the things they start? How many struggle to finish anything? People join this site regularly, hoping to find others to help them complete their ideas. Why? Maybe they cannot or don't know how to complete their songs. Right out of the gate, the project is at odds with the circumstances. They need help, yet most projects do not receive any help. If they receive help, odds are, it's not quite what they had in mind. Even if it IS what they want, the project owner still needs to follow through on getting a final mix they can live with. Publishing or releasing the project, yet another push requiring more time and effort, albeit not much, still needs to be done. If you really want a project to get completed, yet you aren't sure the project owner can get it done, help them out. If your vision isn't what they had in mind, yet you want to see it through, ask for a spin-off and complete it. Don't expect someone else to get the job done or complete anything. Keep in mind that new people come and go, sometimes rather quickly. Old users go as well for various reasons. Working on old projects might not yield any progress at all due to inactivity, closed accounts, death, or worse. :D

Raf's original vision for this site was simply to have a place where people from anywhere can get together and jam. I think from that point of view it works perfectly - once you get the hang of it. Imo, anything else that you can get out of a collaboration or this site is just icing on the cake.

I'm Guilty to almost all of the above. Still learning, still trying. Usually at the moment, its times, full time work, gigs and I got four other recording projects outside of kompoz. My friend jokes that my partner is a studio widow. Sometimes, you never hear back, ah well. Sometimes, its just being taken over by more pressing things for other people, then it falls by the way side. The projects that seem to get finished quickly are the ones where the people driving the bus have the mojo to seem to pull it all together. It's always a journey, always surprising. I think there is excitement when asked to be part of a song or someones puts something down over an idea. For me that's the thrilling part of ktown.
