I'm not sure what the protocol is for submitting an idea when another idea has already been submitted (but not accepted). I often see collabs where someone has submitted an idea, sometimes it's from months (or years) ago, and was not accepted. Is it considered rude on Kompoz for me to upload an idea of my own?I've heard some people say it shouldn't be done. Thoughts?

Regarding ideas that never get accepted or never get any response. Is it impolite to share your idea outside of the collaboration. Should all ideas be promoted only by the Collaboration admin? As in hey i did this for so and so's great track hope you all enjoy. Or is that bad.

What's the protocol around invitations? I've heard that it's not good form to invite multiple artists for a particular part on a collaboration, so I've got, e.g., one invite out now for a bass player. However, what if I don't hear from them for a few days and I want to keep the momentum going - is it reasonable to just recall an invite and send out the next one? Or is it ok to send out a few invites and terminate the remainder when one person responds?

I've been playing around with some ideas for tutorials on music collaboration online. Are there any suggestions from this group on important subjects that should be covered?

I've been made the Group owner by support. So we should be back to business as usual for the group now. Hopefully group ownership transfer becomes a feature so this won't happen in the future.

Hi Fellow "Do's and Donters" . It appears we have more members joining this Forum arena (which is great!), but our leader has left Kompoz and I think it may be stalling. Bobby Watson is the administrator (and creator)of this discussion platform and from what I can see he has signed off for Kompoz.(A BIG loss to Kompoz) There doesn't appear to be recent discussion happening even though we have new members...Any ideas. Maybe a technical hitch there? While I'm at do "Spins" work. Seems to be little Kompoz advice on the matter...Cheers W/Dave

Hi everyone! I'm doing research on this very topic for my dissertation (at Syracuse University) and would love your thoughts. I can distribute some of the takeaways to this group if you would like. I am interested in learning more about how musicians in online communities are able to lock into a groove together while collaboratively creating a song. If you choose to participate in the study you will be asked: 1. To complete a 10 ? 15 minute survey 2. Permission to write about the music and conversations in the projects you reference. 3. Follow up questions to clarify responses on the survey. (if needed) There are no specific benefits to you in taking part in this study (but you will be helping a fellow Kompozer to graduate!). If you are interested in participating please view the consent document listed before the first survey question and send me a message on Kompoz or contact me via e-mail at if you have any questions. Thank you so much for your thoughts and your time!!

This is a great idea. Hopefully I can learn and teach in the lyric arena.
