I'm really enjoying coming up with a playlist here - this is the kind of thing I want to do for a living (music production/engineering) so I'm putting a lot of effort in.
Yes, offically released live material is fair game. In fact I'm using a live track in mine.

I would like to get into music production too. I would love to be a producer. Have you had any experience in the field?

Not really. I mean, I made a beat once (it was terrible) in FruityLoops back in '05, but I really had no idea what I was doing and was just trying to make a backing track to loop so a guy I knew could freestyle over it. Other than that, I ran sound at the church I used to go to (mixing, keeping track of volume levels, hooking up microphones, and recording the service) on a large pro mixing board for about 6 or 7 years.

I'm going into a studio at some point this summer (I have a buddy who's an audio engineer who can get me time) to record a four-track demo to send to the music school in Vancouver that I want to go to. They only accept 12 students a year so I'm going to ask him to show me how to mix and master it myself so I can use it as production experience for admissions.

Have you got any production experience? How do you plan to get into it?

Hmm, I was just thinking about when this was going to start again. Looks like I missed it this time.

Mark me down for an alternate though if you need one.

I don’t have any experience yet but my dad is building a recording studio in his basement and teaching me about record production. I think he’ll let me get experience by mixing and producing the artists that play there. After some experience there, I will look for a job (hopefully mixing or working creatively with artists) at a local studio. Omaha has a big Indie scene so that is reasonable.

I think I would make a great producer. I work well with people to get the most out of them. I see myself as a Todd Rundgren or Brian Eno. I always have musical ideas that come easily to me. I have a knack for dissecting the layers of a produced song. I think I would be best at mixing from a musical standpoint.

What are some of your producing qualities?

That is a GREAT list. Competition will be fierce this time out. The only disappointment is that there aren't as many newcomers as there were last time.

I have no idea. Like I said, I only ran sound for a church service - and I was a teenager then, too. Not really much to develop a style, per se.

I think I've finished my playlist - time to start writing.

What's the policy on leaked tracks that'll be officially released after the submission date?

It has to be officially released before submissions are due, so in this case, March 31st.

However, if it is something that comes out on Tuesday, April 1 for the U.S., I'll allow it, as those same releases generally come out a day earlier in Europe and other parts of the world.

So, are we doing the anonymity thing or not? This is going to affect my write-up.

I've been thinking about having the tournament run with anonymous playlists, and while I think it's an interesting idea, I'm not really certain how anonymous the playlists will be. For our new players, we obviously may not figure it out as quickly, but all the returning players tend to utilize a few artists every time (including me), while others have a distinct style for doing this that would give them away easily (like Screwtape). And as the tournament goes on, I'm sure some will be revealed anyway.

I don't mind either way - I just don't know how anonymous it will end up being. I'll put it to the masses here and go with the majority opinion. So everyone, feel free to give your take.
