Good idea. Winter draws on. The evenings are shorter, nowt to do in t'garden, nor watch on 'telly. An inspiring picture, a willing keyboard and a surfeit of 'toys' to try out; no great surprise there, I'd have thought.
Anyway, you're barking up the wrong tree; the photo leaves us parked on the horns of a dilemma, if you'll pardon the expression. What would you have us do..? Pack our trunk and branch out elsewhere..? Enough..! You've twigged; I shan't lumber you with a corny ending; I'll just log off and bow out.

... and our eldest has brought me yet another twist to flesh out..! Yay..! Back shortly...

A vocal rendering here, with a touch of mystery to it. Yes, you may hum along; I'm sure you all know the tune...

Dad I see you being bored, nothing on the TV, short cloudy days, cold , beer fridge empty, ... you can join me on the Orient Express to Istanbul where the Sun is shining! I promise we will be back by the time voting for this competition starts! What say you :P

Nearly a year (and a baby) - and nearly was meant for the year, not the baby - I found a couple of hours to spend on the basschat competition again. My interpretation of the pic is a rather lazy morning, yawning and stretching as the morning sun just has risen. I hope that comes through in the music as well. As usual, good luck to everyone!

I love that tune alibabu, very fine depth in there! So far my favorite (if allowed to say before the voting kicks in)

Thanks, Che, I am sure you will have a hard time selecting the top three when all entries are in!
And Dad, you can probably cut down a lot on the sedatives now, thanks to me. I´ll charge you accordingly of course. PM with invoice sent!

Despite the panning from the critics ( ;) ) last month, I got another one !

Had this thought that there was a Germanic fairy tale about an evil commander who was put under a spell by a white witch. His arms,legs and torso are still alive and kicking underground, but his head has been stumped.
Alas, I could find no such tale....so I made one up !

Here is mine. I struggled to come up with something this month but, today, it came to me. What would a tree sound like if it wanted to sing? I didn't want it to be a song because a tree would not sing a song. I wanted it to sound more organic than a song form so I improvised a theme with myself singing along to add that 'voice' to the sound. I think what I came up with reflects my idea so I am happy with the result.

What I am thrilled about is the sound of the recording. It is totally dry. This is what it sounded like when I pressed record and then played it back.

Surely the tree would use Electric Wood?

I'm missing this mumph. Will still be voting though.

Me too, my heart of stone Diddy is so far off the mark that I couldn't justifiably enter it and claim it was inspired by the picture. I've had another idea, but I won't get it done by tomorrow. I've listened to some of the entrants thus far and I have to say I'm very impressed. There is a runaway winner in my mind already but you never know it goes.
