Mefi Music Challenge #1 wrap-up etc

The first Metafilter Music Challenge, "water", has officially deadlined, with 27 entries as of this writing. Fantastic! A whole lot more below the fold, so come inside!

Music Challenge: what is the last day of the Water Theme?
posted by chuckdarwin on Jul 5, 2007 - 25 comments

better music challenges

Meta Music filter. As a newbie, I was a touch underwhelmed by the recent song challenge. "The theme of water" seems so broad as to be kind of, well, boring. Why not 'love' or 'nature' or 'loneliness.' Might I suggest something a bit more kooky, esoteric, and actually challenging for the next one. Something along the lines of, "you make me touch your hands for stupid reasons." (via) Maybe nothing that gimmicky, but come on! Can't we do better?

And Now For Something Completely Thematic

Announcing the Metafilter Music Challenge! After a discussion here last month, we're starting up an opt-in theme-based challenge over at Music. A bit more inside!

Musical Themes / Constraint-Driving Songwriting

I posted an idea here a few weeks ago, and I was just wondering if people were still up for it.

Voting for Podcast Music?

Would the admins (yes you kind folks) consider voting/nominations/suggestions for the featured songs for future podcasts? Just curious. (Prepared for a sound walloping.)

Always. ALWAYS Filter.

Matt, I have waited several hours for you to fix it, but the song parody you linked to in the Blue Sidebar is titled "Thou Shalt Always Filter", not "Thou Shalt Not Filter". And it is totally awesome... When I say “end” thou shalt not say “well”. When I say “Wen” thou shalt not say “dell”.

Song Challenge

I have an idea for a songwriting competition, and I think the musicians here are talented enough (and have the know-how / equipment) to pull it off. On a weekly or bi-weekly basis, someone (the winner of the last round) could post a challenge (ex: an old-school country waltz about flowers), then everyone who wants to compete could post their songs and the MeFites could vote. Opinions?

Buy this damn record already. Abused kids thank you.

A bunch of Mefites made a record. It's for a good cause. It's ridicolously cheap, too.

MeFi Music favourites/add

At MeFiMusic, adding individual songs from other users' playlists to ones' own, or otherwise favoriting tracks looks time consuming. How about 2.0/itunes/etc style 'starring' beside the trackname to add a filter-layer for favourite/playlisting?

Congratulations frenetic, or as most of us know you, Brad Sucks on yesterday's appearance on New Music Canada Track of the Day! When you get rich and famous, remember - we recognized your brilliance first.

Song and artist???

I need help with a popular song for the late 80s / early 90s. A chanting song, with monks in the background and a woman repeating latin sayings. Can you help? I tried Chant, but that's not the right album.

Just a Taste

RPM Challenge Update: Streaming audio is up on the RPM home page, featuring one song from each of the 850+ albums submitted. This is not the full player containing all the albums; that was previewed last night, but still in testing. Coming soon.

why or why?

2-3 weeks ago I posted a song to music. It's no longer there. I assume it was deleted. Of course, there was a perfectly good reason why it was deleted. It would be nice if you notified me of this action, the reason why, and allow me to respond before the action was taken.

Mefi Music etiquette: would it be okay to post the album versions of demos I've already posted? [more inside]

Mefi Music Playlist and Issues

Two requests for Mefi Music: 1. It would be nice to have usernames on the tag results page. (e.g. acoustic) This would help users find other songs by the same artist. 2. The frontpage tends to load my system because of all of the flash files. Would it be possible to have everything show up on one playlist like the "tagged with" pages or the user pages? [mi]

what, no Styx torrent?

Would making a torrent of jonmc's list of 300 songs be a good idea? If that's okay with jonmc, of course.

MeFi Music hit mute for a while, but we found the remote

MeFi Music is working again, but we lost every uploaded song from March 22 until now. I've set the threads to hidden, but you have two options: re-upload as a new post, or email me the mp3 so I can restore it.

Can I Legally Post This To MeFi Music?

Sometime in the early nineties a now long lost friend of mine recorded a cd. I can't seem to locate him and it's been quite a few years since we last talked. I found a copy of his cd and want to post a few of his songs to MeFi Music. (I love the cheesy pop-techno sound of a few of these tunes and the memories they bring back.) I "played" on stage with him (keyboard flourishes...very minimal playing on my part) and spent many hours in the studio with him on more than one occasion during the recording of said cd. Given that information, would posting the songs be an OK thing to do? Are there legal issues?

What's the deal with posting songs on AskMeFi? I've contacted some users to ask if I can sample something of theirs, and while I have no problem doing this (and will continue to ask), I think it would be neat to be able to specific a creative commons (or other more restrictive) licenses. I know they could simply specify themselves, but it would be nice to make things unambiguous by default. Not hugely important, but I think it would be helpful.

How to get a quick dose of Metafilter Music

What's the best way to listen to all the songs currently on the front page of music.metafilter.com as a continuous playlist? Any suggestions? Is there something I'm missing? If there really is no way to do this currently, could I suggest some dynamically generated playlist page, that operates like existing playlists, but takes you through, say, the last 50 tracks.

Fans of Dylan Hears A Who might like to know that the page now contains links to a zip file of the all MP3s, plus a CD insert and tray card.

Favorite MeFi Music playlists?

What user-created playlists do you follow on MeFi Music? My playlist is just a dumping ground for anything that I've liked, but I figure that someone has to have made more specific ones (e.g., favorite singer-songwriter tunes, great jazz vocalists, best love songs, etc.).

MeFi's Dylan?

As he's currently holding 4 of the 5 coveted "Most Favorited Tracks in the past 7 days", a staggering 86 (and counting!) favorites for his latest MeFi-related (and sidebarred!) tune, is it perhaps time to consider changing that heading for MeFi Music to "rock and/or cortex"? Well, anyway, congratulations, cortex!

Album art for your music downloads

I'm a bit obsessive about my album art, but I never had anything for the songs I've snatched from MeFi Music (chococat, I'm looking in your direction). So I whipped up a little something that I thought I'd share with the community. It's nothing special, but perhaps it will help fill out your Cover Flow.

Links from favorites (Music) to song broken

When checking any given user's favorites page, and if it's a song from MeFi Music that the person has favorited, going to the date/time stamp for that song post results not in arriving at the post, but rather with the message: "Error: File not found". Now, I see there was a thread concerning a problem with favorited comments from MeFi Music, so maybe this problem is just something still awaiting the necessary laying on of hands from # 1?

Music Guidelines

It says in bold that Mefi Music is a place for users to upload their own songs. I'm guessing that means original songs written by the user are being encouraged in order to avoid copyright infringement...? What about songs that aren't copywritten or are in the public domain, though? Are musicians welcome to post cover versions of old songs if royalty issues aren't a concern? Curious.

Maybe we could have metafilter music contests?

When I was younger I entered a lot of bi-weekly music competitions. During the first week people would make songs using only a provided pack of samples. The people who entered would vote on the best ones the second week. It gave me a lot of practice, I met a lot of new people, and it was fun. How about something similar for MetaFilter Music?

Lost Music Recommendations

A few days ago there was an AskMe looking for music recommendations. Someone posted a link in it I wanted to bookmark later, but now I can't find it. Did it get deleted or am I just searching for the wrong tags (tried music and mp3)?

Change to Music format?

Just wondering if there's been any change to the format of the streaming versions of the songs uploaded to Music. Lately they seem extra-specially compressed sounding to me, so I was wondering if it's something on my end. Not bitchin', just wonderin'.
