It’s been some weeks since I’ve entered, but I’m back once again! For those of you who do not know, there is a weekly Open Mic Contest here on steemit ran by @luzcypher and supported by @pfunk. If you have not checked it out yet, please do. Whether you sing, rap, or just try to, it is some excellent fun and a great chance for us to have some good times together and share some of our favorite songs, whether they are original or not.
Are you a musician? Singer? Rapper? Karaoke dabbler or GOD? Maybe even a spoken word poet? On its 34th week now, hosted and partially funded tirelessly by @luzcypher for the better part of a year, the Steem Open Mic contest has rewarded many talented musicians and artists.
But I realize that not everyone on the platform has noticed the contest. It could benefit from more eyeballs, and it would be greatly enriched by more participants!
This can mean your own original song, a cover of a song, or even just a jam.
What schooling or training do you need to go into music production?
I studied music/maths/physics for 4 years at University and took piano lessons until Grade 8. You don’t need to have a degree or even be able to play an instrument. There are plenty of people watching Youtube and putting it into practice but these are an exceptio
Two days ago I wrote a post on heavy metal music to give you a vocal challenge, in the comments I was asked by @sgtechservices where I would recommend someone start to improve their voice if they aren't a good singer?
I wrote a rather massive response to him and in the process realised I had a post in the making, so here is a more fleshed out response for anyone curious about how to move forward with improving their voice.
Firstly I would like to note that I am not a vocal coach and whilst I have studied music I am not an authority, I am only sharing my own personal methods I have used to train and improve my own voice - if at anytime you feel pain or discomfort attempting any exercises please stop, failure to do so could result in permanent damage to our voice and vocal cords.
As someone who has lost their voice before for many years, it is devastating and very challenging to overcome - I still st
Do you love live music? So do I! I've gladly spent up to $150 to see some of my favorite bands in concert and I thoroughly enjoyed each and every one.
Since I love live music I appreciate seeing street musicians anytime that I get the chance. There are some very talented performers and, talent wise, often little separates them from their famous counterparts.
These street musicians can make a visit to any city center a really magical experience.
Seeing this type of performance is free if you want it to be but why not support these artists by adding something to their contribution hat or canister. After all you've just been entertained!
During my wonderful Irish getaway last week there were different acts playing every few hundred meters alon
I was the little blonde curly hair angel around 10-20 other „Gangster“ street styler, that is what I used to call them because all the girls and boys were so „cool“ … Do you know what I mean? Just imagine little soldier with long curly white blonde hair and no experiences in freestyle dancing at all, around with girls who had a short hair cut, colored from black to blond, baggy pants, famous sneakers , dreadlocks, Chicago Bulls Caps and cool guys who I never met before in my life. I was so scared, mostly because I was so happy to join these „cool kids“ and I was shy to experiment with my b
Steemians of the World - as Curator for German posts and anything related to Germany (apart from other topics) we want to introduce once a week also some typical music from related countries - starting with a band many people know outside Germany.
We checked Wikipedia first and had a good laught to read their definition about them
a German Neue Deutsche Härte Band - oh well - Wikipedia depends on people to feed them so no attack towards them. Anyway - Rammstein is a German Rock Band, founded in 1994 in Berlin. The majority of their songs are in German, music genre is between Metal, Rock and Undefined stuff. The band have sold over 35 million albums worldwide. I love their sound carpet (given I come from both sides - Metal and Techno / Trance) and outstanding performances . I still struggle with the content of their lyrics but most Germans do so!
Thanks for all the amazing comments in my previous post about introducing more people to Steemit. I have just under 700 followers (follow me) so to get 90 comments is amazing. I don't think you'd ever see that kinda interaction on other social media. 👍👍👍
This song is about believing in yourself and determining your own future without following what everyone else is doing. It's exclusively for Steemit (but especially for @kingscrown @mynameisbrian and @thebluepanda) 🎁

I was inspired to join Steemit last October by @quantumanomaly, after he'd been talking with me for a couple of months about the awesomeness here. @tltran helped, too. :)
Once I joined, I found local friends in @giftedgaia, @winstonwolfe, and @sykochica through @steemittalk, then branched out further when I had the opportunity to meet @papa-pepper, @stellabelle, and others at our Springfield Meetup a few months ago.
Since I joined Steemit, I've been trying to get other creative friends on board, and I've been using the devil that is Facebook to do it...and it's finally actually working.
Then @d-ro and @robbied
Hello fellow Steemians, here is an original piano piece from my latest album
I plan on posting some live video soon of more piano stuff. Thanks for the love on here!
Today was Rustin's Art Slam, and I decided to perform my composition Annabel Lee (Poem by Edgar Allan Poe set to music) live to post on Steemit. I have posted the computer version for this several times, but never a live version. This version was a lot better than last time for sure. I forgot the words for a second, and had a few tempo problems, but overall it was alright. I also decided to upload the video from March (the day after I wrote it), so you can see the difference.
Thank you to my choir teacher, Mrs. Ellis, for playing the accompaniment! Also, all the soloists, musicians, and artists did fantastic.
Here are the lyrics from Poetry Foundation:
It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to l
It's been a while since I've been on this platform. There has been a lot going on in the world lately and I've been feeling moved to create more music. I saw another user was able to embed his soundcloud song so I figured I would give it a try. I'm at the point in my life where I'm making music for my own enjoyment (and hopefully a few others). It is more like therapy session for me. I'm hoping to create more in the future. Enjoy and please let me know what you think. Thanks in advance.
It's a blockchain, distributed com-puting
O-pen source and smart contracts too
It's a blockchain, crazy 'bout Vitalik
Got a to-ken, called Ether too
It's got DA-PPs, runnin' on E-VM
There's a D-AO, but it got hacked
And I tried mi-ning, 2GB don't cut it
I'm a gentleman, at least while on slack
This image was the inspiration. =)
