Alright. I had some time to contemplate things. I had a moment of clarity and have realized that if I go into seclusion then I give up most of what I love about this place. I have a great time collaborating with everyone. I like my projects being public and the surprises that come with them being open. I enjoy trying to help others bring their visions to fruition. I find that being a part of the community can be a rewarding experience. I'm not the type to not admit when I'm wrong. I do want to work more on my projects and accomplish something, perhaps an actual album. However, I don't think that it has to be one or the other. I believe there is a balance to be found. I need to work on my own ability to focus. I've always been rather scatterbrained:) A few conversations and posts that I viewed recently on the community page prompted me to realize also that I shouldn't let negativity take control over me in any form. This is also something that I've been trying to manage for quite a while. That said, I just wanna thank you all for letting me be a part of this wonderful community.
Disciple: Male Vocalist needed Disciple is a song planned as part of the 3 song EP Forgotten Folklore. What it needs right now is a Male Vocalist. The Lyrics are as follows: https://www.kompoz.com/music/collaboration/1166377/file/1166379 Disclaimer: The entire track has been constructed via Royalty free Loops downloaded off the Internet Thank You.
A production that we started this week-end with DuBrae (under the label "Fantastical Emporium of sound"), featuring Oko ;)

i made a very unkind comment in a thread this weekend that i wish was beneath me. my intent was simply to be so mean as to get the dude to stfu. i just want to apologize to the community for spreading negativity (on multiple occasions in regards to this individual) and publicly criticizing someone's artistic output. this should never be done. that guy just gets under my skin a bit from literally years back at this point. i'll try to do better in the future but otherwise i intend to keep on truckin'. a new one:

One of my favorite uses of a loop:

Loops. Yegads; strife and gonads. Who cares, really? Why take away from someone else's creative process - maybe for different reasons (physical or otherwise) they can't do what they used to do and find loops, or programmed guitar, to be how they can now express themselves. Would you shame Jason Becker for this? He uses samples, etc. in his composing process - is that a big deal? (Once his songs are done, he does replace things with players, but I suspect much of the original makes its way forward as well.) My only complaint with someone using loops or programmed guitar played on a keyboard is when they prefer the loop/vst to my playing, lol. And I wonder: who is being hurt by a person using loops? It's their music, you don't have to join and contribute. I'm not being hurt when I hear someone's composition where loops are being used. In our criticism of people that go this route, are we taking away from the community by driving these folks away? I think it diminishes us to do this. My $.02

Let's stop beating around the bush:

Hi all, I am looking for some lyrics for this track called A Green Flash At Sunset Was The Signal. I was reading this book series called The Salvation Sequence by Peter Hamilton. In it the green flash was a signal for an alien invasion of earth to start. The aliens are trying to save all sentient life in the galaxy by kidnapping them and storing them in stasis. They want to take all life to the end of time to be saved by their god (The god at the end of time). That can be the subject, or you can use the name to spark something else if you wish.

As a message of thanks (and in keeping with the spirit of Christmas), I will be posting my own Rory Barrington Advent calendar right here for your enjoyment .......... more info about this in the coming days. Thank you fans and music lovers- Rory

Dear friends, we are looking for two new guitar (lead / rhythm) and two voices for this 60s song. The guitars on the track are for demo. The new ones should be electric :) Come on and join our team. Have a nice Sunday! Cheers! Artur

I'm going incognito for a while. Working on my own protects rather than submitting to other projects. I've had a ton of fun helping you all out, but I'm at the point where I feel as though I need to accomplish something more. It's a path on my musical journey that I think I must take. Thank you all for everything. Kompoz has been amazing and the community has been like a second home. I'll still be around but I won't be active within the community. So if anyone feels sorta like I do, and are serious and dedicated, feel free to message me and maybe we can accomplish something great together.

Part 2... My point here is that we need to publish our shit, if you don't you are missing on something that could append just like that without notice and be pretty surprising. This song would be the good example on an unfinished dream but please enjoy the work of all the KWorkers please. I am no credit except drum works... Cheers. Chris.

A thread has been started recently about using loops/samples. Even though I know that a recent upload of mine has prompted the conversation, I can not have a say in the thread due to being blocked. So, I am responding through this thread. I have always been clear on my opinion of this, and vocal about my use of said when I feel a project could benefit. Some see me as a "fake" or a "cheater," to those I say do your research. I have been a musician for over 20 years, but I am still limited in my abilities. If I can't achieve what I feel is best for a project through pure "skill," I will find another way. This is what production is all about, making sure the song is the best it can be. I always find it amusing how no one ever really says anything about the use of the countless other tools we all use on a daily basis to improve the quality of our work. For example, I have programmed drums for numerous projects and those tracks have been accepted. When asked I always inform the project creator/participants that they are indeed programmed and typically they are okay with it. BUT if I upload a guitar track that was programmed by me or played by someone else and arranged by me, now I'm suddenly a "cheater" or "fake." I gotta ask, what's the difference between me using a guitar track from a guitarist outside of Kompoz rather than using a track from someone who's a member? Don't get me started on the number of times samples/loops have been used to create hit songs. Look, I don't feel like I need to justify myself but I am sorta tired of the slanderous remarks and comments being directed at me. I hold no grudges, and I will continue to create music regardless of the negativity. If you have an opposing view, I'd like to hear it. Open communication is something I enjoy:)
