Today I marked almost all of my projects as finished and uploads to these projects are no longer possible! I have the plan to do less on Kompoz than before.I am not away but for a reason my free time for Kompoz will be more limited. New musical adventures are waiting for me and a way of making music that is new to me. How? What ? Where ? Why ? I will then show and tell in the next few weeks ! But so that there are no misunderstandings! I'm not gone but will do less and maybe more focused than in the past. On my member Profile " Showcase " list you can find now those Projects that are open for people to join. See this here as an info post pointed to the small group of people that know me and work with me !

Just a quick share... a little prompted by Sriracha's drum ode there, which hit home.... The whole reason I discovered this site in the first place and was so enthused was because of the drummers here. Somehow I got lucky enough to find Cory and we have years and years of music to show for it. This is one of my favorite ways to make music. Cory on drums and mix, and I do bass first, then guitar, then vocal. I'm thankful for every song, and I am thankful for Cory

It would be much appreciated if somebody could help me pick out the chords & lyrics to this song. I can't find out who wrote & originally performed this. If I can figure it out, I would love to add this as a project here. It is a local American Indian legend from where I was born. I was born in Alton,IL.

Alright. I've had my fill. It would seem that I've had a hand in starting a major debate and diluted the integrity of the community page. I want to extend my apologies. I never thought a simple upload/idea would have such an outspread effect. Up until now Kompoz was an outlet of expression. A place where I could visit and listen to great music, chat with talented folks, learn, and become inspired to create. Now I feel like I'm being backed into a corner. Needing to be cautious of what I say and what I submit as to not offend anyone. This is a restriction on creativity. I know efforts have been made by some to make things less controversial but unfortunately, for me, they are being overshadowed. I am losing the desire to collaborate and I don't want to lose that drive. I'm at a crossroads........

Hey there everyone. Trying to get into the Holiday spirit with a rendition of one of my favorite songs. This is my rendition of "Santa Baby" I recently discovered I sing this song much better in Bb. So I need the music provided to be -1 down to Bb. I recorded my vocals in Bb Chromatic. I am a pop girl I love effects I am open to any ideas. I just really want to make this song come alive.

At one stage I started using drum loops so I could concentrate in other areas. This is one I did with a great Keith LeBlanc loop. It's kind of hypnotic :)

I just finished watching the new Beatles documentary "Get Back". I was amazed and delighted how these four guys got together in a room and created masterpieces with basic electric guitars, electric piano, really crappy mics by today's standards, and crude 8 track tape analog recording equipment. I think the eight track rig was cobbled together from two four track units ( this being something new, done for the first time). They even recorded several songs on a windy rooftop, and these takes were used in the final production of the album "Let it Be". As far as I could tell, there were no individual instrument tracks recorded to a bed track. I also remember this other documentary about Bob Dylan which replayed a video of his folk music fans booing and hissing at him on stage just because he incorporated the use of electric instruments into his band. Maybe they could see far into the future? This was an ominous harbinger of things to come? First we humans would use inanimate tools to make us better, now we are using machines to make us better, and It is good to be better, right? But what about when the machine becomes better than us? As we experience the rise of AI, being "relegated to obsolescence" by a machine is a recurring hurt that is starting to be felt across all spectrums of human endeavor. Someday soon AI will control the internet, and it could be that human music will be deleted because it is not perfect. Full disclosure: I use drum loops, effects, multitrack editing, midi editing and every other programmed digital trick I can get my hands on, and if It were not for the current technology I use, I couldn't do diddly squat as a real undigitallyenhanced musician:)

Funny how some people are scared by some others, who can create great products by using different techniques and tools than them. Something apparently cannot be considered good quality, if it has not been achieved in a certain (traditional) way - regardless of whether it actually does sound good or not. Weird.

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.

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
