NaSoAlMo 2013: Write, perform and record an album this November

What is NaSoAlMo?

(Inter)National Solo Album Month is a fun, free annual competition in which musicians write and record an entire album during the month of November - all by themselves.

NaSoAlMo favours enthusiasm and perseverance rather than perfectionism. It encourages musicians and would-be songwriters to silence their inner critic for thirty days in order to inspire and maximize productivity. The albums are likely to be hastily written, off-time, and out of tune; the main objective is to just do it.

How we're running it this year...

So, we will be running NaSoAlMo in a low-tech, internet-circa-1996-style:

To sign up, email admin@nasoalmo.org with the following details:

Then, when (if!!) you have finished your album, email admin@nasoalmo.org to let me know that you have finished, including the final length of the album.

If you would like a forum account, please email me (admin@nasoalmo.org) with the username you would like to have registered for the forum (between 3 and 20 characters and no spaces) and I will add you manually.

I will maintain this html page with the current list of participants and later in the month, who has succeeded. A forum (use the menu link at the top of this page) has been set up for encouraging one and other, discussing methods and equipment etc.

All the best,

2013 Participants
