RPM Challenge 2024

And so, with great anticipation, I return to the RPM challenge.

It’s a very cold night here in Baltimore – 18 degrees as I type this. We don’t get many of these anymore, so I’m kind of relishing this season. Maryland is wonderful for its diverse seasons.

https://www.rpmchallenge.com/ asks participants to accept the challenge of completing a musical project during the month of February. It can be a song, an Ep, and album, or even a boxed set.

I chose Ep this year, with the hopes of completing at least 4 songs – and I mean songs in the more traditional sense – and then some more experimental pieces.

I then read that it is acceptable to complete already started songs, which moves me a lot closer to the goal stated above, and quite possibly an entire album.

I’ve done this enough times to know that what I set out to do, and the material I end up with, usually are very different. We shall see.

Last year’s RPM album was A chop off the old block.
