Great to hear the feedback from everyone for this comp. I think it's been a particularly interesting challenge as it's forced us all to reconsider our conventional methods which can't be a bad thing. I also think that the one week submission window is a really good idea. It focuses attention on the competition for a week or so. I hope everyone has enjoyed this challenge as much as I have. Really looking forward to hearing the submissions as I know that I'm going to be blown away with the creativity out there

Music completed just need to get the vocals done. Enjoyable and interesting, just wish the drummer could keep up! Does he need permission/copywriter crediting?

So nearly there. Will be not safe for work, schools, churches or hospitals. But we don't care. (Actually we are a bit in two minds)

As St Peter would likely confirm, it’s often more expedient to seek forgiveness rather than permission  :P

Most of the music recorded. Trying to squeeze in as many learning-to-record-stuff exercises as possible. And some automation.
Vocals this weekend. Hopefully.

Having a go at this myself and over egging it as always.  Should be done by the deadline though, fingers crossed!

I'm going to go right down to the wire on this...dont know if I will make it!
Instruments largely recorded, but no vocals yet and only lyrics for the chorus and I won't have a chance to record between 24th-27th  :o
But pretty exciting!

Deadline is 31st right? Midnight? :D

Well I'm having a stab at it, but you're going to have to disqualify me if it's against the rules to feck with the arrangement which my brain won't fathom. Still using the drum track, just moving things around a bit. Is that OK?
Holy crap boydie's right - it speeds up! Oh well probably end up with a bottom-feeder mess anyway  :D
