Nur Ein XIII

May 11, 2018

It's May. Nur Ein season is upon us. Nur Ein is the annual judged song competition. Every week you're given a title and a challenge. This year, Round 0 was "Trial by Fire" [incorporate siren]. Round 1 was "Internet Sensation" [sell an imaginary product].


Round 0 Merisan won with a nearly perfect score of 98. We were far behind in second place with 80 points. The Nur Ein judges have wildly varied tastes. I was their 5, 5, 6, 8 place pick. Second place felt nice for a second, but it's meaningless.


Fun "Trial by Fire" story: I was testing out a new mixer. I set up mic, monitor, main speakers, and iPad playing TBF without the lead vocals. I forgot that it wasn't a sound--proof studio. The people above me called security.
