The good folks over at Angry Robot Books are running a wonderful contest. Remix the “Angry Robot” song that I co-wrote with Science Fiction Author (and fellow GeekDad) Matt Forbeck and enter to win a role in Matt’s next Angry Robot novel! Click here for the details:
If you haven’t had a chance to hear my original recording of the song, you can get it for absolutely free. Click here for the free download:
This is a great weekend project to do with your kids, even if you have limited musical experience. Download the separate vocal, synth, bass, and drum tracks and dump them into a piece of music software like Garage Band or Audacity. Tweak the levels, apply effects, add some Apple loops, and voila, you’ve got yourself a remix.
For you more musical types, why not create your own music underneath the vocal track or add your own voice? The song is in the key of D minor and is 116 B.P.M. If you are using Garage Band, make sure that you create your project with theses settings so the loops sync up.
Have fun and I look forward to hearing what you come up with!
