Do you miss bandamp?

December 12th, 2022 + 11:12 AM  ·  clusterone

Me too. But it feels gone.

I have done my best to recreate this kind of community in a private group on Facebook. We have monthly "battles" - -but they're not competitive, just each month we have a "Release day" where we listen to each other's song for that month and provide feedback.

Over the last year we've released nine compilations of our stuff on bandCamp (not to be confused with bandAmp ) and I'd feel honored if some of the old faces from bandamp joined too.

The group is here -- just put "bandamp" in the question about where you heard of the group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/243569247441277

And if you're interested, we've released stuff here:

Nothing is Wrong

January 20th, 2022 + 9:01 PM  ·  clusterone

I know this community has shrank considerably since I posted here regularly from 2005-2008, which also coincided with my extended break from the only hobby I ever loved, songwriting. Ever since the pandemic Iíve been working tirelessly to try and produce songs Iím proud of and whil I havenít quite reached my goals there I do think my writing and playing has improved somewhat from when I was in my early 20s.

Nothing is Wrong is my attempt to do some falsetto. Hope someone will listen!

Cluster One Demo

December 12th, 2008 + 10:12 AM  ·  clusterone

Inspired by Petermoncrieff's post, here is my own 'demo reel' displaying my progression as a songwriter. I took what I thought were a good representation, as no one wants to hear samples of 50 or 60 songs. And now, allow me to ramble for a moment.

I've always been at the very least a casual fan of Conor Oberst, usually known as Bright Eyes. But the one thing I've always really loved about him is that he got started so early (14 or 15) that you can really see his progression -- to hear evidence of someone improving from Solid Jackson (a lo-fi mess of a song from his first album) to some of the more mature and polished works later on was always more of an inspiration than the music itself. It taught me something that we learn as children but need to be constantly reminded of: practice makes perfect!

Hopefully, if I keep practicing, by the time I'm 90 I'll be somewhere approaching perfect, but for now I have a long way to go And hopefully, if someone who is just starting out can hear the difference between my first songs and my later ones, they'll see that they can get a little better too.

thanks for listening!
