i've already discussed this in tsukichat but i would like for any migrants who aren't currently able to join due to maintenance to also have the ability to participate: 23 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.
i'm currently compiling a purely migrant-made collaboration album, where each migrant who is interested contributes one (or two, depending on the number of participants) song(s), which i will then compile into an album format.
whether you want your song to be daw-, tracker-, instrument-based, etc. is completely up to you, as is the genre of the song (and i do mean any genre)! there is also no length limit, although i would like to (if there's any demand for that) do a small run of cassettes, so do keep that possibility in mind (maybe keep each song under 20 minutes since i'm not sure what length we'll be needing for the tapes yet).
your submission doesn't have to be project-related but it would definitely be greatly preferred!
please do note that this will be a migrant-only effort so please include your migrant number with your submission, otherwise i won't be able to accept it.
again, please reply to this thread if you're interested in participating or in this idea in general (if you're currently unable to join chat, feel free to share your submission here too)!
What do you mean by "project-based and -focused" and "unique
and project-specific"? What's in your mind? Lyrics about the project?
lyrics aren't necessary at all. i mean something that makes this album be focused around and reminiscent of the project, be it in terms of atmosphere or recording process or something like the above submission where the person who made it connects it to this, etc. etc.
it doesn't have to be literal (i've only had instrumental submissions so far anyway) but i'd like this album to not be some generic internet compilation and instead be quite clearly a migrant-made collaboration; be that from atmosphere that reminds you of it or that you were thinking of lfe while recording it or things like that… that's just the ideal though so don't let yourself be limited by that too much.
(sorry for the monologue.)
No need to say sorry! That's what I wanted!
Any suggestions for how a shitty
pianist and a shitty
singer can contribute?
well, it's quite difficult for me to give specific (or any kind of) advice, as i would never call myself a 'real musician' (there's a reason i drown everything in reverb).
but, if it's any consolation, this album will, from the few submissions i do have, be very varied in terms of genres and separate styles. so don't worry too much. none of us are professionals, and professionalism is boring anyway.
