As Wiki would have it, and for the purpose of this contest, A percussion instrument is any object which produces a sound when hit with an implement, shaken, rubbed, scraped, or by any other action which sets the object into vibration.
Also, for the purpose of this contest:
1) Any synthesizer or sampling type device that replicates a percussive instrument will be allowed
2) Piano's will NOT be allowed.
3) Bowed instruments like violins and the like will NOT be allowed.
4) Plucked instruments (guitars and the like)NOT allowed
Submissions MUST follow these rules:
1 - encoded in either .mp3 (192kbps or lower if fixed rate ... average of 192kbps or lower if VBR) or .ogg format (quality level 6.00 or lower)
2 - A STRICT MAXIMUM of three minutes in length. If it shows up as 3:01 in my player, It's gettin the boot!
3 - entered into the contest by posting a DIRECT LINK in this RULES & SUBMISSIONS thread (use the GOSSIP thread for everything else). If you cant provide a direct link, please contact one of the following people listed below, they will be happy to help you out. These people provide free hosting for the purpose of this contest only! They are not a hosting service. When contacting these people, please take the effort to understand the terms and conditions they provide).

5 - Your entry must be composed specifically for this contest
6 - Your entry must be created using at least some audio plugins, virtual synths, or software studio
7 - your entry should have the FILE named in a format of "yearmonth_artistname_tracktitle" (ie "1006_artistname_tracktitle.mp3"), where the artistname is the same as your KVR name. Please, do not use spaces and special charaters in the filename. I will be booting for improperly tagged comps (this will not be a DQ, just a little reminder that you din't tag your comp correctly). Special considerations will be given to those that have the hosting agent change the tag.
8 - IF you are going to tag your mp3, the artist name is to be the same as your KVR name, and the title tag is to be the name of your tune(help us out, okay? it's easier to sift through labelled entries)
9 - One person can participate either with one entry, with one entry and one collaborative effort or with two collaborative efforts.' - no resubmissions without permission from the moderator, INCLUDING for time-overage correction. PM me for permission!
10 - Any tracks not adhering to these guidelines will be very naughty indeed. Possibly disqualified upon peer review. And at least mocked for all to point and giggle.

so, NO guitar sounds are allowed to come to this party.
But synths and sample playback devices that can make a drum noise are?
Well, you didn't say anything about not allowing guitars to trigger drums, right? Right?
But in honour of your wishes, I won't bend any strings while doing so.....

Percussive sounds and vocal tracks are the limitation...
That's rather an invitation !
Although being aware there's still lots of stuff I could knock on, I've tried to put as much as I could in my song, as a tribute to our dear mate Wyatt.
He kind of like my way of jamming a heap of thingies into a small place, maybe because he has lived with his family on a Catamaran (in Hawaii ! ).
I nearly got hyperventilated during the carton kitchen paper roll solo, after doing a bass track blowing the arm-Tuba (imitating farts, blowing on yer arm).
To go on in the internationally expanding trend of our Contest I added also some vocals from several far away places. So far away that the name of their country hasn't reached us yet (= I wouldn't know where they come from; 1 thing for sure : they aren't from California ).
About the automation done : designing the Eiffel tower must have been a piece of cake compared to it ! As always I've (over)used only 8 tracks...
Please click silently on the link and don't smash - por favor - 'cose I'm stuck with a terrible headache after all that banging :
Have fun and see you at the big party Scoops organizes every month (sounds better than 'voting' ),
Max... .. .

Echo Voodoo - Where things go
[2:12 long, 3MB 192kbps mp3]
I don't know where things go anymore
So I fret and forget what I'm looking for
I not sure where my things have gone
Or why my thoughts are so withdrawn
It's like I'm just barely hanging on
So I wait, 'cause it's too late for me to atone
And I cry, oh why oh why am I alone

Nose to the grind, like yesterday
It never changes in any way
Watching the hands turn around the dial
There must be something that's more worthwhile
There's no relief from this routine
Staring all day at a computer screen
We're only pawns in somebody's scheme
Just little cogs in a big machine
all percussion was recorded via mic (except the IBM Printer - via Freesound.org) including the main drum beat courtesy of -
