A simple little composition I made. Sorry for poor quality, I wasn't allowed to enhance it more to minimize all those pops and stuff and make myself more audible haha. Excuse my cellphone going off briefly around 2 minutes in too lol. See, this is why we need to allow broad audio enhancement in music competitions haha.

"My home is in another world" lyrics

Time gets old
Memories hold
But all he could forget
Angels dark
Still burn his heart
Too late to be a threat
Love no dream
Espouse no theme
Face everything alone
For all he'd be a mystery
Stranger so unknown
And he lives on the sidewalk
Watching life pass him by
And he sleeps in a bubble
Soaring to clear skies

My home is in another world
In a world so far away
My home is in another world
So he prays every day
My home is in another world
A world he well recalls
My home is in another world
Still wondering if it's there at all

Had no chance
At first glance
To make it where he is
Desperate will
Exploitable
To reach the world that's his
Walks the beat
Down narrow streets
They question whence he came
But they can't see
With empathy
They scarcely know his name
And he lives on the sidewalk
Watching life pass him by
And he sleeps in a bubble
Soaring to clear skies

(chorus repeats twice)

Excellent song from my opponent. I wasn't expecting an original composition but that's very cool. For my round I have done a bass cover of the song "Between You and Me" by dc Talk. I apologize for the poor lighting - I had to choose between decent sound quality or bad lighting.

That's still something that would be fairly difficult, as I don't know any solo pieces that could be done outside of performing to a song. Bass guitar isn't well-equipped as a soloing instrument.

To some extent I agree this tournament was something of a bait and switch. I was rather surprised when I saw the rules as it prevented me performing the song I actually wanted to do. Maybe in future it would be good to put the rules in the sign up thread. Just my two cents.

Uh...there's no singing required in the competition (I don't sing either). It just requires that you perform the song entirely by yourself.

TN05
Nah, I cannot sing. You gave no such indications that this contest would require signing in the sign-up thread. If I have to sing, I cannot participate. I'm a bassist, not anything else.

@Rev , yeah, but it's about the KIND of quality enhancement. For example, my microphone is super sensitive as you can hear. I can dynamically reduce the volume with a compressor (and you can probably hear I did) but then removing all the leftover crackles and pops and such would be adding to the sound something that I didn't "perform", which I figured was not allowed. Which still sounds kinda bad.

@TN05: It's because the validity of your song is being disputed right now as you didn't perform all of the elements of your song (e.g. the singing). Maybe you guys can restart it?

@Larz: Your's is fine so don't get worked up m8. I do recall saying that quality enhancement is allowed... >.>
