    Show off your OC's

    How about a thread where ppl can post links to their original compositions!!!

    I'd love to hear what ppl here have been doing...

    IF you've released a CD, lets hear about it too

    I'm not a moderator, so I don't have the rule book, but: Normally here at IBM you can load up your music if it has a element of learning in the areas that is covered in IBM (music theory, technique, composition, arranging, rhythm etc). I'm sure you can make some remarks or propose some learning points on at least one of these areas with your music, and if done properly I guess it will be accepted. So I would say: Go ahead!

    PS. Many members also have a link to their web-sites where you can find their music. e.g. check out Chris Joergensen and UKRuss.

    To be honest, I'm not sure what senior admin think about guys posting links to their own promotional websites, although I think several senior members have had links like that for a long time. So my approach is to just leave things as they are (unless/until instructed otherwise).

    As Gersdal says - guys often post music clips asking for critical comment. And that seems fine to me. Might be different if they are specifically trying to sell their latest CD ... but again, that may also depend whether they are long term genuine contributors, or new guys just popping in for some free advertising .

    seems fair...didnt really give much thought to that aspect....

    How about we change it up a bit...

    (1) post your OC
    (2) talk about the inspiration behind it
    (3) describe the recording process
    (4) talk about the music theory behind it

    Sounds somewhat feasible. But it'd should be formalised I reckon; a sticky or something.
    ... Yes, that was Random.

    You will not find many sticky's on IBM, unlike many other forums, and I find that to be a good thing about IBM. Threads die out eventually, and new ways of dealing with the same questions arise. If a thread on compositions and recordings attracts attention, it will in fact be a "sticky".

    In order to keep the composition aligned with a discussion on theory, improvisation, rhythm, composistion etc I would suggest to post the thread in the appropriate area of IBM, or in the Cafe.

    PS - Yesterday I posted an original composition in a discussion on music from dreams.
