The Kompoz-A-Thon is officially dead. BUT... It has been re-invented into a new and improved set of challenges in honor of our greatest contributor - Mykk Freeman (RIP).

Mykk , VocalRun , and formfisch have all created their own unique versions of the first in a hopefully long-running series of Kompoz-A-Thons! So WHY not YOU??? :) Feel free to either contribute to their tracks or spin off your own! And if you're not into the current Kompoz-A-Thon challenge, feel free to comment below letting us know your ideas for next week's challenge! Thanks guys! :D

Could anybody lend their ears and let RaylucySongs know if these are the right chords to match the instructed chord progression of Am/Em/G/D/Am/Cmaj7/G/D?

And we're off to the races! Check out the collaboration I have added all of you guys to and spin off your own version if you wish to put down a bedtrack according to the parameters. :)

Hi. Theo here. Just came across this group and I like the idea. My primary instrument is guitar but I also fumble with keys and programs drums and what not.

As we approach the kick-off date for our first challenge, I want to speak a little bit about the mini-events... See, while the main event each week (challenges) is for fun and to get everyone having a good time, there are also a few mini-events that will be mainly geared towards helping out out fellow Kompozers (along with others). Here is the (tentative) list of the Mini-Events for this week: SINGIN' STORIES: This foundation - - had contacted Kompoz a few years back asking for our help to turn stories that children wrote into songs. The children served in question face challenges such as cancer, homelessness, etc... and at first we found that it was a very meaningful and fun way to make music here on Kompoz! However, recently, while are still many stories being put up, our efforts here on Kompoz have dwindled. Perhaps we can make a sort of fun competition out of writing some songs for the stories this week, for anyone who hasn't hopped aboard for the main event or has extra time? BE VOCAL: For those vocalists on here, how about something like this? 1) find a recently active member. 2) find a collaboration by them that is 3 months or older yet is without vocals. 3) Upload some vox, tell them it's part of the Kompoz-A-Thon, and report back here. Congrats - you have resurrected a once dead collaboration, and made all the collaborators happy! Feel free to ask me and possibly SimonW for help with lyrics if you need it, and how about we make this a friendly competition - like maybe whoever does the most gets to be the guaranteed lead vocalist on the Main event #2 track? Or something like it? What do you guys think of these ideas? Of course they are completely optional like everything - just an option if you still have time and want to after the main event. :)

Hello - this is MikeJM. I remember back when we had the JWChallenge and all those things, and it was so awesome! I've always been one who has wanted to help the site, new members, and orchestrate a good time - and with this I think was thinking of doing all of that in one package! Anyone who shares a passion for this is welcome to join along with me. I am by no means the "administrator" - just the starter and initial organizer of something I thought might be a great tradition! I first wants to test the waters and find out the interest level. Who would be interested in joining? I will need some people to help me out, because I'm already re-committing myself to a few other projects. ;) Thank you! (Check the FORUMS & POLLS sections for specific info)

The Kompoz-A-Thon is a non-stop series of weekly challenges that anyone is open to join! 


Can you keep up the pace week in and week out? Or do you just want to stop by once in a while?


As long as you follow the parameters of each challenge (posted in a PDF file in the collaboration of the week), we are happy to have you aboard! :)


Note: The Kompoz-A-Thon will require you to spin a challenge off from the original collaboration. IF you are out of collaboration space, please send me a message and I'll make a collab for you! 


Without further ado, here is the first challenge of this new series for 2019:


Have fun! :)
