Overview and invite! (Updated)

If you use any script blockers you may need to allow “vimeo” and vimeocdn”
which is the video host
and this site

Let’s collaborate on songs of Peace, Rights and Sustainability!!!
No experience necessary.
No money necessary.
As little or as much time as you’d like to put into this.
This can be easy, fun and help our world,
PLEASE contact me and let’s get some songs going!

I’ll list links a couple paragraphs below to programs and websites we can use to share audio and video and text files as I decide what I am using and will update as needed.
Suggestions are welcome.

This project is about making a better world, so the songs are specifically meant to be about rights, sustainability, peace and so forth. We want the instrumentation to be as good as possible, but this is about more than just the music, they must carry a message in support of a better world.


A DAW is a Digital Audio Workstation – recording program Like FL Studio, Cubase, ProTools…..
If you don’t have access to a DAW you can still be involved!
You can write lyrics and poetry, you can even record your voice or whatever on a phone or other method, just contact me and we’ll figure out how you can participate.

The LIST of programs and sites we can use.
(that will be updated and yes, I welcome suggestions)…
1)   I use FL Studio as my DAW. Whatever you use is fine and if you don’t have one don’t worry, contact me and we’ll get your music, vocals or whatever as part of a song.
2)   Procollabs.com is a site I joined where you can upload tracks and get people to join in on a collab, please check it out and when you do let me know you’ve joined so we can connect and collab.
3)   WeTransfer.com is one of many sites that you can transfer files (up to 2 GB) and/or store files.
4)    Mega has free and paid storage with 20 Gigs free (more than Dropbox) and while I haven’t used this part yet, on your desktop browser, Android or iOS device, you can have a secure voice or video call with a single contact or have a group text chat with several contacts participating. You can also send files from your MEGA Cloud Drive to other members of the group chat while messages are flowing, so collabs could be nice and productive using that site.
AND  Please READ the terms and privacy policy of any site or program or app that you use. I am listing these and will add or change the list but the decision to use any of them or others MUST be decided by you and you can’t make a proper decision unless you are informed, so read up on your own.

If you do want to trade tracks back and forth through email or whatever please make sure to render the tracks you plan on sending from the very start of the song even if the part you want to send doesn’t come in until part way through the song.
So there may be a lot of silence before your music or vocals are heard but it will ensure they come in at the right place and are lined up properly.

My instrumental music you can listen to if you’d like to see some of what I can do:

Please contact me with questions, ideas or to sign up for the newsletter.

ABetterWorldWithSteveAndMusic.com is a new video, podcast and article series that will help us make this a better world and have fun with music, collaborations and recording!
It will help us all be able to automatically figure out better ways or to deal with problems in an immediate way and to be proactive AND to mix in music in whatever ways possible!
There is more detail on this project at the first post, more will be found in future posts and the various pages of this site which have been started but need more work.

New site!

New site! 😀 1st podcast, article and video below, please give the video and podcast a few seconds to load or just scroll down to the article if you’d like.
NOTE: If you use any script blockers you may need to allow “Vimeo and Vimeocdn” which is the video host, Pinecast. com and .net” which is the podcast host and this site


The podcast below is the same as the video above, but only audio. Then there’s the article.

I’ll start the ball rolling with a basic summing up of the better world and music parts of this project (more than in the above podcast and video) what this site and project’s main mission is…

This site is to help us all be able to automatically search for better ways or to deal with problems in an immediate way and to be proactive whenever possible.

Instead of talking about problems or posting them on social media and just being mad or sad we can and should come up with a solution or search one out.
What we share as a solution may not be the best or the most efficient etc but the more we automatically see a problem we, at the very least, try to come up with a way to deal with it, make the problem or bad thing stop and to move in a direction of a better way where the problem wouldn’t even happen in the first place.

Until we all do that we’ll be stuck with problems way longer than they had to be problems because of everyone thinking “if people know about this, it will end or be dealt with” which is fine to think it and admirable to see someone being aware and deciding to raise awareness, but if everyone does that there will be total awareness by everyone on the planet and still nothing will change.
We must stop being only reporters expecting someone else to come up with and set into motion some sort of vehicle of change and train ourselves to automatically be the one that wants change AND comes up with a solution and/or searches out something, gets busy being involved in the change and shares the solution around, or, if nothing seems to be being done by anyone and one can not come up with anything on their own then they should put out a call for someone to figure out what we can do.

So, whenever talking about or posting online about a problem, PLEASE start with the title/subject issue or link, then add the solution or link and if it’s in a post on social media do those 2 things in that order so that when someone shares it the info or plea for someone to come up with something to do goes with the original post and is not just a comment only seen by those seeing it on your page or in the feed with your version of it.
THEN copy the solution or plea and paste it in the comments of the post so as to make sure it’s seen and it is perfectly clear to all that whatever you posted about bothers you AND you are trying to fix it or find some way of dealing with it.

Same in person. Talk about whatever it is, then talk of a solution/way of changing things and/or ask the person or people you are speaking with what they think should be done and then encourage others to follow through and then work on it even if you are alone in acting on whatever it is.
You can’t guarantee anyone else will act, but you can make sure YOU do.

Also make sure to do the same with good things that should be encouraged. Don’t just see the good and bad of the world and ignore or only report on it, ACTIVELY engage yourself supporting what is good and stopping or changing that which is bad.

This site will also have videos and articles about music and recording and one thing that would be GREAT would be to collaborate on songs that say something about what is important such as peace, rights, a sustainable planet and so forth.
Hopefully that can happen and as for me I am a musician but do not sing, so anyone interested in collaborating please contact me and let me know!

Again, reporting is not enough, make problem/solution as one thing in your mind, don’t leave it up to others.
