Suggestion for the next Open Genre Comp...

Not to get ahead of ourselves but...

I was having a thorough read of the OP in [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
yesterday and noticed this in the details:

I think this is a cool idea. Not for everything all the time but every once in a while this limited number of slots thing interests me. Have you guys ever thought about doing that for an IDMf Netlabel Compilation? Maybe a little more than three spots, maybe like five or something, would interest more people and be more effective for a release from a listeners perspective. But, whatever the number, I think a pre defined smaller number, could bring healthy spirit of competition to one of these open genre comps in the future and bolster incentive for submitting only your best work.

Not that we have anything to prove mind you, just think it'd be fun, thats all.

Re: Suggestion for the next Open Genre Comp...

Don't think it changes much submission side, just becomes a predetermined track # release, no?

Re: Suggestion for the next Open Genre Comp...

Well maybe, but one spot of five would be seem to me to be more valuable than one spot of twenty five so it would be more like a competition in the true sense of the word.

That's the difference.

Re: Suggestion for the next Open Genre Comp...

truth is there s a sort of limit to the number of tracks on a release anyway. it's not set in stone, granted, it depends on how may submissions and the quality. at most i'd only look to put 10-12 tracks on a release tops, unless there were one or two truly exceptional tracks that had to be on there too (which would normally mean other tracks maybe not making it anyway)

Don't all the releases go on Bandcamp anyway?
I've probably missed something but I don't get what the distinction is about?

Re: Suggestion for the next Open Genre Comp...

My suggestion didn't really have anything to do with bandcamp but more the number of tracks that get selected. I was under the impression that, unless something was really bad, most everything submitted got on, which is fine and good, I'm not complaining. When I read about the limited number of tracks avaliable on Bens comp the possibility of getting on (being 1 of 3 vs 1 of 18) became more exciting. So I thought, in the spirit of competition, why not do that here once. Not every time, but once.

But then Ben set me straight on the fact that there's a limited number already so my point is kind of moot anyway.

Re: Suggestion for the next Open Genre Comp...

Yeah fair enough, not having a go or anything I was just missing the point.
I'm of the opinion that we obviously need to keep to some sort of standard whilst trying not to make it into too much of a charts-based idea. It's not a popularity contest.

Re: Suggestion for the next Open Genre Comp...

my suggestion for the next one is to actually have a theme. this kind of came up when people were submitting artwork and someone commented that it's impossible to pick one without hearing the release, since it might not vibe with the actual music. so wouldn't it be great to have a theme first and a cover picked before kicking the whole thing off, so that we all have something to vibe off and so there's some kind of cohesion to the whole thing? since it's open genre, it should still be pretty diverse, since people here are into all kinds of shit. but at least this should give some commonality. and also kind of help to ensure people are doing tracks specifically for that comp, instead of grabbing some random finished track they might've had laying around and just submitting that.

Re: Suggestion for the next Open Genre Comp...

Not to dismiss the idea completely. When we've had themes or restrictions before now it impacts in the number of submissions we get in the negative. The only exception to that was when there were some cool arse prizes on offer for the change the noise comp.
I guess if we organised more prizes then it's doable again - hence the not dismissing if the idea.
It's something that'll get looked into again for sure

yeah, i can see how that could be the case. though i still think it might be a good idea to at least have a cover picked before hand, without explicitly stating any restrictions. then some of us will chose to take it as inspiration. and those who don't give a fuck will just do what they always do.

Re: Suggestion for the next Open Genre Comp...

I already know this is a totally unproductive comment, but I think it is really lame of people to bail on the comps that have themes or limitations...ask people to do something out of there comfort zone and they bail...ah well...

^ I'm guilty of that. I think having to offer prizes for more submissions kind of sucks, but I understand the need for more submissions.

Re: Suggestion for the next Open Genre Comp...

I get what you're saying but I'd prefer to hear people doing what they do well rather than struggle through listening to somebody doing something a bit shit and applaud them for trying, leave that stuff for the LB or QAWM.

I tend to agree with Lolirl more and more often, should I get worried?

I do like the idea of the cover first, then being inspired without restrictions. I think the beat tapes are an example of placing restrictions.
