Steemit Open Mic Week 84 - Record Your Performance And Win Steem - Sponsored By @pfunk And @luzcypher

in openmic •  last year  (edited)

Steemit Open Mic is an online, live music venue to give musicians a chance to share their music with the Steemit community and get their music heard. It is growing larger every week thanks to all of you.

I want to thank all the talented people that have made the Open Mic contest such a joy to host. It is a pleasure listening to everyone's music and getting to know you guys. Steemit is SO cool like that.

@pfunk has been sponsoring Steemit Open Mic since I first started it and I want to give a big thank you to him and all the people who support and take part in Steemit Open Mic.

NOTE TO SCAMMERS: I have closed most of the holes scammers have found to cheat the contest except for one. Now people are stealing valid entries from the current week and entering it as their own thinking that because the person in the video says the words Steemit Open Mic Week (current week number) that I will not notice it was already entered. This is the worst form of cheating possible and I have started flagging those caught doing this.

From now on, anyone entering Open Mic must say Steemit Open Mic Week Number (current week number) and their username to have a valid entry. This is to stop scammers from stealing your video and entering it as their own.

Steemit Open Mic Process

Keeping it short and sweet, here is the flow of considerations for the Steemit Open Mic contest:-

  • Need to promote community participation in the spirit of Steemit Open Mic night.

  • So.. Steemit Open Mic submissions in comments, community voting and reblogging are encouraged.

  • However, we need to avoid public vote abuse and keep a certain standard for Steemit Open Mic night.

  • So.. community voting as the first filter, before internal voting.
  • Another problem: late submissions are usually disadvantaged as they get less attention on the contest post.
  • So.. we've tried to mitigate such a problem by including unique votes of Steemit Open Mic submissions in their own blog posts.
  • IT IS CRUCIAL WHEN YOU RECORD YOUR VIDEO THAT YOU SAY "STEEMIT OPEN MIC WEEK 82" AND YOUR USERNAME AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR VIDEO

  • We're looking for real live musical performances for this contest. Some people have posted old videos from YouTube and it's difficult to verify that it's really them performing. They will be disqualified from the contest.

  • If you want a chance to earn the prize, make a new video and say STEEMIT OPEN MIC Week 84 at the start of it.

.

New Music Category Communities

Music Category communities are coming together on Steemit and if you're a music lover, please show support and join in the fun. Here are a few new places to find great music.

Suggestion: openmic must be the first tag to enter open mic, but adding other music-related tags (such as music, music-trail) may help your post get more attention and perhaps even get curated by those music curators.

If your song is an original song, add orginalmusic as your 2nd tag. This will help curators know it is an original song which currently pays a Steem bonus to you.

Thank you all for the participation!

I'm usually not soft for any kind of art, lol but as you started playing my eyes become watery. I'm jealous of your talent honestly. Music was a great passion, that of course it was not meant for me eheh, but you have it, don't give up.

Awesome. The song and the sweater :)

Hey guys!!
We are very happy to participate in this Openmic 84!

Hello @Luzcypher and dear Openmic friends,
After a long break, I'm happy to share with you my entry for this week:
Long Run, the debut single from my upcoming album.
The song came out last week, and I've recorded it today for Open Mic, but a bit different- in Hebrew, for the first time here.

Have a nice week,
Nir

To me, this is one of this week's standouts. I'm into the song, enjoying a soundscape created on the fly, through the keys and knobs.

This is my contribution! I hope I did everything right this time - and thank you for the opportunity and for listening.

Good afternoon dear community of musicians of the great family @openmic, we are in the week 84 and we continue to grow with truly talented new users and that is good because it enriches the platform more. This time with a theme of the missing Michael Jackson when he played with his brothers.

Here is my entry for the week. It is an original song called 'Ambulance Blues'. I hope you like it. As always, thank you @lucypher and @pfunk. 😎

https://steemit.com/openmic/@acousticsteveo/lly3t9zh

·

How beautiful that guitar sounds and your voice is very beautiful, will it be that we can make a duo and participate in your singing and I enter with my violin?

·
·

That's a great idea. I would love that. The next song I wrote, I'll keep a violin part in mind and I'll send you a video so you can create your part. It may take me a few weeks. 😎

·
·

Or if you had a violin piece on it's own, I would love to write lyrics and sing to it. I have never sang with just a violin, but would love the chance. 😎

Here's my submission for the week, thanks again for hosting and good luck to all!
