    I woke up today with a new email from LPU in my inbox describing this contest.
    I figured, SWEET! But I realized it had been years since I have renewed my LPU Membership.

    My question is this,
    If I join LPU today, would I be qualified?

    I ask this because the email also contained this..
    "LINKIN PARK is searching for a new sound. For the upcoming Linkin Park Underground 13 album, LINKIN PARK wants to collaborate with you on your original song. LINKIN PARK is seeking aspiring musicians for this amazing opportunity. With the help of Red Bull Studios and Hard Rock Cafe, you can win a trip to Los Angeles to record with the band*

    *Available to current LINKIN PARK Underground members only."

    Clarification?
    This would be EPIC! If I can qualify of course -_-.

    Sweet!
    Thanks a ton! :wave:

    In that case,
    I would like to invite anyone from the LPA to collaborate! :leak:
    I know their are some brilliant musicians roaming the boards, so lets create something EPIC!
    I can help anyone who would like to collaborate! Regardless of genre. :)
    My background is primarily in Hip-Hop/Rap. I can make instrumentals, rap, sing, as well as mix! :impossibru:

    I have interned for 75% of my local studios(permanent, or even PAID Engineering jobs are nearly non-existent in Utah!) including "Annex Recording" and "Boho Digitalia".
    The former does not receive enough revenue to have the ability to hire on another engineer, and the latter was a one man show holding 2 engineering jobs to keep the studio open.
    So he received revenue from the studio itself, as well as a position as head of the Audio Engineering Dept. at SLC Broad-View University. Even with extra, steady income from the university, he ultimately has been forced to combine his studio with "Spirit West Studio's" primally functioning as a Studio B.
    Spirit West is a very high quality studio, even featuring analog Reel-to-Reel :cocainefan: upon customer request to compliment the Pro Tools HD setup. The majority of the money made at the studio is from time leased for the purposes of Video production(as far as I could tell during my time interning at BoHo.) Basically, people would rather pay to film a music video in this professional studio than record anything with their equipment! There is no market for my skills to be utilized. Not a market that could pay bills, while allowing me to keep my personal integrity. :turrible:
    Engineering techniques once kept secret, are now common knowledge if you know where to look. So anyone who wants to engineer, need not leave their house to gain immense knowledge on the subject! People can even gain experience from their own home!
    The internet as well as the rise of cheap, high quality recording equipment has killed the average Professional Studio!
    And in my mind, that's ok!

    I came to the realization that withholding knowledge in order to profit from it, is fundamentally wrong(in my humble, meaningless opinion.)
    :withstupi

    So, I am offering my skills to LPA/LPU. For free! :WTF:

    Even if you'd prefer to submit your song as an individual(Where if you win, you alone would win), I'm still more than willing to help! I'm offering my skills and asking for nothing in return!
    If you like my musical style, and would like to collaborate on that level(Where if our song wins, we all fly out) I am more than willing to help in that way as well!
    Let me know if your interested and we can workout the details.

    Looking forward to hearing some great music!:isee:

    Well, fuck me for not being in the LPU. I've got one original in 5/8 that I'd love to see LP work with...
