Music Yukon is excited to invite you to participate in the RPM challenge this year. What is RPM? RPM is simply put, Record Production Month. It’s a challenge to yourself to create an album of new material during the month of February. This is a project for members of ALL skill levels and disciplines! Anyone can come up with an excuse to say “no,” so don’t. Many of you are thinking “But, I can’t do that! I don’t have any songs/recording gear/money/blah blah blah…” But this doesn’t have to be THE album, it’s just AN album.
- This will be fun!
- Ten songs or 35 minutes of recorded material.
- Recording can only be done in the month of February – no prerecorded songs.
- All material must be previously unreleased, and we encourage you to write the material during February, too.
- Participating bands get their own page on the site (rpmchallenge.com), which you can blog to as much as you want. You also get access to the band-only discussion board, where you can swap ideas, resources, etc., and the ability to e-mail and private message with the other participants.
Write some instrumentals, split up the songwriting duties amongst band members, form an RPM side project, write songs on the piano or clarinet instead of your primary instrument, make that metal album you’ve always wanted to – buy a ukulele! Just do your best to make the best album you can. Be unafraid.
