I've got a song in my head since I saw the picture but I can't think what it's got to do with the picture. It's about a heart of stone???????

Well after listening to that, every time I look at the picture all I can see is a sneeze coming on.

Now I'm completely stumped!

Ok lads and gals :) I don't know if the rules say anything about how short a piece can be, but I either have attention deficit disorder or am just a dummy learning how to do this new-to-me-recording-songs-stuff :blink: Again I enter with a short piece but will try with time to make things longer I promise :ph34r:

Any way, like last month's art picture here too I approach this sculpture from the sculptors point of view/feeling. I do like art but I mostly enjoy the part when creating the art form be it a painting, sculpture or a tune. In this case I see this sculpture being made with a hammer and wood chisel (no chainsaw in my imagination). The sculptor is dancing around the tree trunk chiseling away piece by piece to release this monster into its new form!

And here is the first entry for the month November!

Thanks :) I wish I have the ability to make longer tunes without constant repeating. To be honest I just recently started recording (like EVER), and I never played with loops nor with other people so to fit more than 3 lines and longer than a minute tune is for me (at this stage) like embarking on a 'Homer-like Iliad & Odyssey journey' :lol:

But if you do fancy More you can always press the Repeat button :D

I could not help but hear this old tree trunk complain about those kids in your tune ;)
Here is the story;
[quote]This time I could not help but see Dad's kids dancing around this old tired tree trunk and them making a laugh about him. The old tree trunk could not talk but then I suddenly heard him talk to me musically :) He was complaining about these darn kids, generation after generation laughing at him and singing funny songs about him yet they fail to see his deep wisdom. He was a huge tree once upon a time before they cut him down. He sais the humans were jealous of his vast size and wanted to lower him down so he is more on their level. Oh, he feels nothing but pain and disappointment when these kids dance around him, these same kids once they grow into adults will cut down other trees, his kin.[/quote]

And here is the tune called 'An Old Tree Trunk Spoke to Me' [b]NOTE; I am entering the competition with this tune![/b] Thank you! :)

That's very odd, as I found him to be a very jovial chap. He told me a joke once, which made him guffaw and chortle for ages. I've posted the joke here; see if it brings tears to you eyes as it did to his. Further explanations to be found on the Soundcloud post; enjoy...

Disclaimer: this is a 'throwaway' ditty, not my 'official' contribution to the Challenge. It's very, very good, but please don't try to vote for it. Thank you. :mellow:

Dad that tune deserves to be in the competition! I love it ... except the ending which was a bit too ... 'sharp' somehow, well I didn't like it but the rest is just awesome! Also to say I didn't really like the first entry (I'm saying this in hope you drop the first one and go with this one) :P

The initial upload got corrupted somehow, so I've updated the file as of a few minutes ago (23h45...); depending on when you listened, you may find a difference now. As for replacing the 'official' entry, I'm a stubborn old beggar, and often stick with my first impressions. The month is young yet, though, and I have been known to fill in the waiting time with a flood of 'throwaway' stuff, so be wary of what you wish for..! I may even come up with a winner; who knows..? :ph34r:

Finally finished my mutant blues, named after (mis-spelling of) a Nazaire track which it only resembles in tempo and amount of bass!

As you can probably tell and as is my usual wont, all instruments had 1 and only 1 take!

This sounds like me :lol: but I mostly do one take because Im lazy!

Ok, I've done mine... It's a lot less conceptual than last time... I've put some words about it up on soundcloud.

[url="https://soundcloud.com/jellyknees/wood-migrations"]https://soundcloud.c...wood-migrations[/url]

It would have been here much sooner tbh, but I fell victim to a malevolent flu bug and I only really started feeling better yesterday...

Enjoying the entries so far, good stuff!

Are you guys on the Angel Dust [i]again!!?[/i]

We're barely a week in and already there's about half a dozen entries. And seven of them are by Dad! Or something like that :blink:

Wow. Clearly nobody is 'stumped' by the picture, eh. Eh?
