-- COLLINS DICTIONARY
SongMatrix is comprised of:
- A set of extremely effective songwriting techniques, to be published in a new book, SongMatrix: How Songwriting REALLY Works!, currently in development, with a tentative release date of 2022. The book will include complete details of the musical and lyrical techniques used by writers of great classics (as evidenced in comparative research described here), and how the techniques of the masters differ from the ones used by contemporary songwriters.
- The Song Audition Matrix ("SAM"), which will enable any songwriter to test or "audition" any original song, much like a performance audition.
When you audition to join a band or try out for a part in a show, your skill as a musician either passes the audition or fails it. With SAM, it's your song that either passes the "song audition" or fails it.
