This poll is for the "Theme/Genre" festival. There is a separate poll for the "Artists/Covers" festival here:http://songcrafters.org/community/index.php?topic=15073.0
Please vote in both polls.
Here are descriptions of the less-obvious poll choices:DIY Fest
- Do it yourself
. No backing tracks, loops, midi, or any other kind of substitutes for a musical performance. You must play all of the instruments yourself. No collaborations. No drum machines. Use your imagination to create your rhythm track. Tap on a cardboard box, play a tambourine, bongos, etc. If you have a keyboard with drum sounds, you can play the drum track on your keyboard - but you must play
it - no programming/sequencers.Summer songs
- see http://songcrafters.org/community/index.php?topic=7891.msg104172#msg104172DuetsFest
- Record a duet with another Songcrafter. Or do a cover of a duet (Sonny & Cher, John Travolta/Olivia Newton John, etc.) If you have a BR-800 or some other device with vocal transformations, you can use that to do a duet with yourself (for example, sing one part normal and process another part to sound female).ManjoleleFest
- Song must feature mandolin, banjo, and/or ukulele.No instruments
- We haven't thought of a name for this one yet (any suggestions?). The idea is to record a song without any conventional musical instruments. Instead, use only kitchen utensils, rubber bands, comb & tissue paper, cardboard boxes, buckets, or any other household items to create the sounds for your song.
