Title: Select your best soundcloud track to be on the kitchen's SoundCloud page!
Post by: Mar T. on August 13, 2015, 00:09:13
Hi fellow kitcheneers!

There's a lot of talent in this community and from today the kitchen's staff gives every 'active' member the opportunity to publish your best SoundCloud track to be on the kitchen's SoundCloud page on the 'Showcase' playlist!
We consider a member 'active' (in this context) when you've contributed at least 45 posts in this forum and you have at least 35 karma points.

Here's how it works:

1. Follow the kitchen's SoundCloud page and and at least like+repost the current (there's one every month) 'Showcase' playlist.
2. Post a soundcloud link to your original song in this thread. I will look at this thread once in a while and add the recent posted tracks to the current 'Kitchen's showcase' playlist on the kitchen's SoundCloud page (if the poster met the requirements).

Btw: here's the beautifully styled (thanks 2 Alexander) SoundCloud page of the kitchen:

(https://soundcloud.com/songwriter-in-the-kitchen)

By working this way we'll give every individual kitchener and 'the kitchen' (as a songwriter-platform) some boost in exposure on SoundCloud, isn't that great? There's so much epic songwriting taking place here, the world needs to hear it! ;-) Thanks all for sharing and helping!

MM

thanks, Marti, i think it will be interesting to see which tracks everyone selects

not an easy task to select one track

at various time in my life i had this feeling....this is the best i ever made...

but now (at my age  ;D  ;D ;D ;D)

i have no clue anymore....
so i select this one for now, but that will also be the best track for Budhabuilding  ;D ;D ;D
and Mrs. DB  ;D ;D ;D
as we made this together

* edit....but i think i prefer it in this mix...
no..this one....  ;D ;D

i guess, i can only select one  :P :P :-[ :-[
right??

because i also would like to select the last track of Fischermans that i got the opportunity to work on

what??? only one  ??? ??? ??? ::) ::)

Marti, can you stop asking these difficult questions

That's such a nice track DB!! Love it! Yes only 1 song is allowed, life's all about choices isn't it? ;-)

My favorite to date is also my latest track 'Dreams' - https://soundcloud.com/martimedia/dreams

Well now, isn't this an interesting thread :) you want us to pick our best song, to date?  ::) What the hell :o that's way too much pressure :o

I can't even decide what to have for breakfast, let-a-lone what my best song is :o Don't get me wrong, I think it's a great idea, but who comes up with this torturous stuff ???

I'm just kidding of course ;D ;D ;D but I will have to give this some considerable thought ::)

Someone needs to explain to Allan, that he doesn't get to post a song for every 20 karma points he's got...although...hmmm?  ;D ;D

Can someone please give me some karma points :o

Oh CS - so nice to have someone vote a song for you (and it's a goodun'!)..

I think this might be it for me.. Production not great and it's very ballad-y and not so exciting but still I like it and lyrically it might be stronger than others of mine but it's one of my earliest songs (maybe my second ever actually)...

Hi kitcheneers and kitchenettes! great this, great work from Fischermans and Marti!

but........ ;D i don't think my track (which is a collab with Budhabuilding and Mrs. DB) should be the opening track......it may scare people away  ;D ;D ;D ;D

In the good democratic tradition of this forum (well until Mr. seriousfun started to bribe and corrupt everyone out here...  ;D ;D ;D ;D with his unexplicable fortune in terms of karma points..... ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D)

i think we should perhaps vote, about what should be the opening track of our songwriters in the kitchen finest album

who votes for having a vote?
(Voting about the exact voting procedure will follow after that .......)

this is nice, and i hope some more of our great kitchen songwriters will select one track...

i am thinking about Boudewijn (aka the KING!), Michael, Habitat (but he has moved house and has been busy with that), Sciencebase, and where is.....a song from our dishwasher, Digger, surely a track of Digger with Katja is needed...Diademgrove...Siennalittle....Jmacdon (ah i will give him some more karma), GTB and everyone i am forgetting here...(sorry)...*edit Haven... IamW and everyone i am still forgetting..sorry

let make the playlist a bit more impressive and complete...ok?? i will send some of the a PM to ask whether they want to donate a track

My best song, to my incredibly hyper-self-critical ear almost always seems to be whatever song I'm still working on...

So, right now that has to be this one entitled "The Mighty Fall", which has some additional lyrics from my good friend JH Livingstone, you may presume...

https://soundcloud.com/sciencebase/how-the-mighty-have-fallen

Hope it's worthy of a mention in dispatches ;-)

I've just scrapped through on Karma points  :) so I can put that envelope of ?20 notes away now........

This is a great idea MartiM, and it's awesome to hear such great quality tracks form the fellow chefs.....

Now my own favourite is a bit ropey production-wise, but it's a song which I adore........

I'll go with Whisper In The Night just because Katja sounds so great. It may get replaced by the inspiration comp song though - depending how it sounds when Katja sings, and if i can come up with some guitar parts.

I just listened to the whole playlist (also liked and reposted)... Absolutely love the material everyone has chosen! If this is not a fantastic showcase of the quality of songwriting going on in the Kitchen, I don't know what is !!  :o :o  :) :) :)

Not sure what song of mine to select... the best songs I've contributed to is surely one of the s?ncr?ft project of Habitat and me, so I'll pick Far & Wide, which we did last year  :)

Excellent choice, Michael!!!! thanks for adding this track to be placed on the songwriters in the kitchen album!

also an excellent choice, Klin, that is a great track and i added it to my favourites on soundcloud, but we did have some rules for who can add a track but i think that information is not in this thread (sorry)

because we want to add tracks from songwriters who visit this forum quite regularly we said that one need to have at least placed 35 posts (else we may have a lot of tracks from songwriters in the kitchen on the album who do not visit the kitchen anymore)

but as i said, your track is great in my opinion, so i hope you hang around and give your input to the kitchen

Looking back I found the Cries of Angels mix a bit "hard" and harsh so I made a new one which I think is smoother without loosing power.

Could someone be so very kind and replace the current version in the playlist with the new one?

yes, we will do that of course, tracks can be updated erery time you think you made a better song or a better mix...but.....

Hi all, back from my holidays and I'd like to get the kitchen's showcase shuffle-ing a bit. I was the opening act with my song 'Dreams' last month and that was an honour!
I propose to make Zedd with 'Alice in a Maze' the opening act (and shift the list downwards, so I'll become the 2nd act, dutchbeat the 3rd, Jambrains the 4rd and so on).
After a few weeks Zedd will choose a new opening act (choosing from the tracks submitted in the kitchen's showcase) and so on.
Every new contribution will be added at the bottom of the list.
Do you all like this idea? If yes: that's what we'll do! MM

yes, we will do that of course, tracks can be updated erery time you think you made a better song or a better mix...but.....

we will have to wait until the big Fischermans himself is back in the building.....he owns the 'keys' to our songwriters in the kitchen Soundcloud page.....

Hi all!!

I think we have quite the selection of songs now - what a great album!

As we're nearing the end of September (and I think we should rotate more often maybe as there are so many songs, but that's just my opinion!!), I'm nominating Digger's "Whisper in the Night" as the next bump up!!

Thanks for putting me up front MM! It's been a pleasure  :) :)

Hi Alexander..

Whatever you think - don't get me wrong I've been very happy sitting up there right on top  :) :) but I was thinking with 16 songs, it would take some of the songs over a year to move right up and I suspect there are more plays up top..... So I guess that was where I was coming from.... It being a showcase and all, I figured we might rotate more often...

But as I said, it was just a thought... up to you! I'm happy either way... ;D ;D

Hi guys and yes what a collection of fab songs :) :) Personally I think we should just rotate the songs as they are...every week or two the top song, should go to the

bottom and the next song becomes the top etc. I think that would be the fairest way to go...not just some random pick :) The time limit should always be the same ::)

Just my 2 cents worth, for what's it's worth :) :) :)

perhaps you can place this track in the "finished" songsection so the others can listen and give feedback or comments to this track.

Hi Glenn, welcome to the forum! This thread is supposed to be for the active members (there's guidelines on how many karma you need to have before we consider posts in this thread).
Listened to Senses Fail - Buried A Lie, sounds great! Maybe it's an idea to post your best song in the 'Finished work' section, it'll get more attention there.
Maybe an admin can move your previous post to the introductions (me) section, or better: maybe you'd like to write a little introduction there yourself?
Hope to see you being active on this forum soon, don't be shy and comment to other people's work. They'll certainly give your work a listen as well!!
Have fun!

Is it an idea to make such a playlist every month? I figured that the current list will grow older and older, thus being more in the past on the soundcloud timeline. If we post a list every month every contributor benefits more of the exposure, and the soundcloud page of the kitchen will get more visits... Just an idea...

Hi Newland, great you bumped up this thread. I was actually about to start another round. My proposition would be to make a new playlist every 2 months, which will result in soundcloud kitchen followers seeing more frequent updates from the kitchen soundcloud profile.

Be sure to LIKE the kitchen's soundcloud page AND like and repost the new playlist when it appears. That helps us reaching a bigger audience together. Ok?

So I'll create a playlist for jan/feb 2016 and post it on the Kitchen's soundcloud page.

!!! But before I do I'd like to ask everybody that meets the criteria (see opening post of this thread) to paste a link to their favorite song in this thread !!!
I'll add them in random order and shuffle the order once in a while.

MM

Hi Martin,

Sorry I haven't been around much - just lost my job so having to focus my attention elsewhere. Redundant twice in 15 months. I must be a curse on companies!
If you're still looking for tracks we have a new one which we like. I'll check if Katja is ready for posting it and send you it.

You won't be surprised to hear that love this!!! Would love to read the lyrics (I'm a sucker for that!!)...

But in absence of that I really love the melody, the mood, the production, the the the the....

I can't make out all of the lyrics but what I can make out sounds very dark... (surprising that!!) so I'm responding based on what I think it's about lyrically and musically... and I love it!

You really have such a great collaboration going - so talented, both of you. This is really a fantastic track.

Congrats on another fab track!

Ok let's give this thread a bump, we're searching for songs for the march/april 2016 showcase playlist on the kitchen's soundcloud page.
You can feature a song in this playlist when you've contributed at least 35 posts in this forum and you have at least 20 karma points.
Please reply with a SoundCloud link to this thread and I'll add your song to the playlist.
By doing this we promote the kitchen community (and of course every individual member that contributes) to the outside world.
I'll add 'Fading Shadow' (the collab jurgen and I did) when it's finished (expected this weekend) as my entry.
Who's next?

Definately!
Because a playlist on the kitchen SC page can display only 5 tracks (before scrolling is needed) I'm not happy yet, maybe we should select the top 5 of submitted songs by poll every 2 months and enter the songs in the winning order on the playlist. But I'll do that when the voting system works fine, it has a bug right now.

Everybody with more then 35 posts and more than 20 karma points please submit your new track for the may/june playlist!

Great idea Marti!! great initiative, so a sort of top 5 of current songs from regular fellow kitcheneers and kitchenettes could be on our kitchen soundcloud page.....

 ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::
do the tracks we select to be  considered for this top 5 have to be collaboration projects in some kind of songwriters that inhabit this beautiful kitchen forum? Or can we also send in solo work??? (or can we have two top 5's?  ;D ;D ;D ;D, one for collabs and one for solo work  ;D ;D ;D ::) ::) ::), just asking..... )

thanks again for all your work for this forum, @MartiMedia

Yes @it must be me, Dutchbeat? let's start with a top 5 first and see what we do if the number of entries submitted raises, then we may be forced to split into categories and I like your main categories a lot!

So let's first see who (with more than 35 posts and at least 20 points of KARMA) wants to submit a track to be featured in the may/june playlist on the kitchens soundcloud page (that's getting more and more followers!)
Who's in?

Just reply with a link to your song on SoundCloud is all we need!

Cheers kitcheners/-ettes/-nauts!!!

Ok fellows only 2 spots in the top 5 Showcase left for may/june.. First comes, first served ;-) https://soundcloud.com/songwriter-in-the-kitchen/sets/may-june-2016-kitchen-showcase
So be quick! You can still be on that list. The kitchen's soundcloud page is getting more and more follows, the chance the outside world hears your track is getting bigger and bigger.
At the same time we attract new members who see us posting playlists every two months on SC.

If more than 2 extra entries for may/june are offered, we'll change to monthly playlists in july.

Added @Mitzi , we'd appreciate if you like and repost the list to your soundcloud page (that's what we ask everybody who contributes, gives the list more exposure).

Okay everybody, the may/june list is filled up, let's start the july list! This time we'll make as many lists as needed (5 songs per list to avoid scrolling). Only 1 solo song per kitchener, no limit for collabs.
Please read the opening post for the 'rules', you need a certain amount of posts and karma before you are allowed to contribute.

@jim and I will contribute 'Panama Paper' (https://soundcloud.com/martimedia/panama-paper). Who else is in?

Sorry for my late response @iiviivix , it's hell at work atm, all my colleagues are on vacation so I have to do EVERYTHING myself haha.
This was a pretty old thread, in the meantime we publish the top 5 of the running competitions on the kitchen SC page, and in between the competitions our staff selects a 'Chef's recommendation'.

But.. maybe it's a nice idea to restart this initiative. Is anyone interested in having their best song published on the kitchen SC page? Might help to showcase yourself, and attract extra members for our forum?
Let me know (and of course if you're interested, please provide a link to your best recent track)..

Post by: MichaelA on August 09, 2017, 11:18:44
Hey @Mar T. , c'mon you know you can handle the pressure (at work)! You can handle the heat in the kitchen, after all! ;D

The thing about the current formula for doing the SC page is that it is a bit of a narrow criteria. The competition songs are only about say 25% of the songs that get posted in here. Then with only one Chef's Rec every six weeks or so, the showcase is quite limited.

One suggestion for adding to the current formula could be this. Every month one of the moderators looks at all the 'song for review' threads and say the Top 10 - or even Top 5 - that have had the most replies for the month, or a combination of replies and views, become the Monthly Chart. The songs that are the best (or interesting) tend to get the most comments and interactions anyway. Just looking at July for example there were over 60 songs submitted, and the competition submissions were only about one quarter of this.

You might have some data already to hand in your admin website stats - say if you have 'most viewed' topic analytics. Or could you export the data into Excel for easy sorting? If it could be exported you could multiply views x replies to give a total score easily enough.

The science behind it is not exactly perfect, but it might be another way of boosting interest in the site amongst the existing membership, and encourage more to come on board. It is definitely a bit quieter on here this week, for example. Maybe it's the holiday period, not sure?

It's better, anyway, than just letting random songs go on the page, as the popularity of the threads are at least are some indication of quality - and indeed how much a member is prepared to contribute to the forum in terms of discussion participation and generation. Maybe you can take this idea into consideration at your next kitchen summit? I know I did mention the chart idea once before, but without an easy way of determining the chart positions.

Post by: Mar T. on August 09, 2017, 20:35:32
Hey @MichaelA , thanks for sharing your idea! I agree we should showcase the 75% other songs better.
I think the algorithm you're suggesting is a clever one, but it will have implications (assuming that everybody likes to have their song showcased on the Kitchen SC page).
Personally I encourage everyone to share the development of a song in the kitchen (from scratch to result), so we can all learn from the progress. But I know not everybody likes to share the process, resulting in threads with less replies, which would then be less eligible for a spot in the playlist.

So maybe we need another component in the algorithm that helps seperating that out.
For example we could also look at how active a member is (as in: replying a lot to other threads (positive weight) only to his/her own threads (negative weight)).
I think I can manage to write a database query that can periodically publish such a list. Maybe the staff has to review the list the first few times, and dial in the weight of 'the algorithm' components, but I believe that in time we can get great lists out of that algorithm, that 'showcase' the ones we want to showcase.
Is that an idea?
Karma for your involvement my friend!
:mart:
Title: Re: Select your best soundcloud track to be on the kitchen's SoundCloud page!
Post by: MichaelA on August 09, 2017, 22:25:51
Cool @Mar T. , you can write database queries! That makes it  whole lot easier!  ;D

Example 1

OK, so I posted a song a few weeks back called 'Beautiful & Brave', which I am most proud of as a kitchen offering. That's because it was a bit raw and flat when I posted it - but after lots of Kitchener input I ended up rebalancing the sound mix as well as getting @Zedd joining in with fab female backing vocals.

This song got 313 views. Say the algorithm gives you one point for every 10 views, that means views were worth 31 'quality points'.

But we have to make sure people just don't click on their own thread to get in the charts so replies from other members should be worth far more than simple views. I suggest the replies from others should be worth say four times the quality score of views seen above.

OK, so my song got 28 replies over the course of time. But 9 of these were me saying thanks and then discussing my song a bit more with whoever had commented. So I had 19 interactions (replies) from others. So if your query could strip out the post starter, then multiply the number of other member replies by say 4 - in my case I would have a quality score of 76 for replies. (4 x 19)

31 views 'quality points' + 76 replies 'quality points', gives that song 107 quality points in total.

Example 2

Another song that got a lot of traction on here recently, but was not a competition song, was 'Hold On' by @Nic .

This song got 408 views, so a views quality score of 40.

The song generated 25 replies, but Nic only came back 4 times for the replies to keep flowing in, so her other member replies totalled 21. Multiply by 4 and that is 84 quality points.

40 (views) + 84 (replies) = 124 quality points in total.

So even tho' my song was fab (107 points) ::thumb:: then @Nic 's was even fabber (124 points)  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: Which is just about right in my eyes. But I will get her one day, damn her!  ::)

So in the monthly chart  she would beat me here, but I would have been in there somewhere probably with that score, so all's well!  ;D

I think the chart should be all about the quality of the song, so not sure a member's contribution to other threads should particularly count here, for instance. But that's just my view - and I am sure there will be other views! Cheers for now,

Michael  ::OSMAN::

Post by: Mar T. on August 09, 2017, 22:49:23
Hey @MichaelA thanks for you detailled response!
Things I still struggle with:
Imo the number of replies don't tell anything about the song quality. It certainly is an indicator for how much attention a post gets, but a lot of attention certainly doesn't mean the song is of high quality. Maybe the poster is very active or popular, or the poster started the thread to develop the song.
Imo when we want to 'judge' the quality of the songs we'd need a 'jury'.
But I doubt if we want to publish the highest quality songs on the Kitchen SC page, I think we should publish the songs from the most active community minded kitcheners. But again, still struggling. Any more opinions?
So I guess the first question to be answerred is: which songs do we want to be showcased on the Kitchen SC page?
1. Most HQ songs
2. Songs from members highly involved in our community
3. Other..

Everybody, let us know, we need more different perspectives on this subject!
Cheers,
:mart:

Post by: MichaelA on August 09, 2017, 23:20:37
OK. @Mar T. , I understand your reservations.

Well maybe a compromise would be the algorithm idea is used to pull out the top 15 (or even top 10) songs for the month. These are then listed in a thread.

Then a public vote, just like the competition voting thread, can determine the top 5 for the Monthly Chart. The top 5 then go on the SC page.

At least then the algorithm idea gives people a manageable amount of songs to listen to each month.

So that nobody gets upset, you could do a 'beta' run on this, which would also determine how much the ranking of the algorithm reflects the ranking of the voters.

OK I'm all done on this now. Over to others, if there is interest...

Good idea of resurrecting the "best of the kitchen" SoundCloud playlist. But I think the methods you're suggesting are way to mathematic @MichaelA and @Mar T. ! ::)
I'm closer to @CrystalSuzy 's proposal. Or even simpler (if technically possible), just add a "like" button to every thread in the "songs for review" section. And then put the 5 songs with the most likes on the list...

Hey - I agree with the idea of having the kitchen play list once again :) Having a 'chart' concept is also interesting. I guess that algorithms as you are describing could be a good way to narrow down the list of songs to a managenable number (esp. as the kitchen gets bigger) but then I agree that say the top 5 are selected by kitcheners themselves (manually) -through a voting system say during the last week of each month. Post popularity could be a fair parameter if coupled with a voting system. And there could be a method which determines wether each kitchen artist is eligible/not. Say for example you need to review x number of songs during that particular month in order to qualify.
Title: Re: Select your best soundcloud track to be on the kitchen's SoundCloud page!
Post by: Mar T. on August 11, 2017, 22:26:07
Hey @Rachel_D , I'm starting to think in that direction as well, the combination 'selecting by popularity' and then voting should give reasonable results.
A problem with the 'selecting' is that in the 'current' month the 'early' threads will have way more views/replies than the 'late' threads. So I think we should always select 'looking back' 2 months, so we're sure no gems are missed. Late threads in the current month then will be noticed in the next month.
Thanks for sharing your view. And thanks to all who participated in the thinking process!
I'll discuss with @Dutchbeat soon, when we're on summit (soon).

Cheers!!
