Time for new spectacles..? I use each month's Challenge picture as screen 'wallpaper'; this allows me to cogitate on the theme whenever I turn the PC on (which is often...). This morning (and for the second time..!), I tried to get rid of the fly that had landed on the screen, only to realise that it was not a fly, nor speck of dust, but a lone traveller crossing the scene on his camel..! D'oh..!

Good try Dad, but I think you'll find that actually, he's a Giza who has a specific part to play in the scene, and my story will tell exactly what he is doing there, granted your heads will drop as you realise this involves a vocal , however, to add some cheese , they are properly lurksalotesque in both content and delivery.

still trying to get Lurksalittle to add some tone to the BV's , but she is a touch wary of compromising any prospective university applications by association with my work , bummer!

Maybe I'm just a bit afraid of the learning curve on my new DAW?
I'm sure Blue Oyster Cult would have some sage advice on the matter... ;)

:D. The bands drummer has got the collective cowbell , and takes great pride in throwing random sequences through a different number each gig , though it had got a bit tired of late , it used to crack us all up

Ours gets a regular six hits for the intro to 'Killing In The Name Of', and that's all. It used to serve for parts of 'Walk This Way', but that's no longer in the repertoire. :(

Submitting as an also-ran
https://soundcloud.c...trobot/senusret

I've been away from this site, among others, for a while. It's two years since I took part in the composition challenge. I'm happy to see it's still going strong but I. AM. RUSTY.
I've named my track Senusret because if you've seen the pyramid of Senusret I, it's a good indicator of my attempt at building a pyramid here.

My tracks always seem to come out so quiet. I really need to do some research on compression/limiting or something.
If I set the waveform to just below the point where it's clipping, it comes out quiet. Very frustrating.

So this track is of no use to anybody listening on laptop speakers.

It sounds fine to me too but Soundcloud does normalise tracks to -14LUFS so they all sound the same volume so maybe your source file is quiet and Soundcloud boosted it.

Just got this comment from my drummer for this months entry:
"Nice intro!
Bit of a slow burner.
Sounded like porn music at the guitar solo bit! Just add some funky guitar. Ha ha, good effort though. I like the side stick bit:-)"

Probably tells you more about him than the music though :)

I think you'll find that it is not actually two persons , it is merely an oddly loaded camel , the dude has to deliver it to a local address I believe !!

It's Rolf Harris & Emu on a camel!

Had I noticed that at the start, my entry would have been very different.

Makes for a more interesting song. Rolf's kidnapped Emu & taking her to KFC.
