Jumping the gun a bit since we don't have a title or formal songtitles either but the idea was brought up on her thread given this and who could disagree?

Oh and try not to have them all be jokes about the new boyfriend.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 14 May 2018 12:35 (four months ago) Permalink

I'll have 'blaze forever like a useless star' pls!

imago, Monday, 14 May 2018 12:37 (four months ago) Permalink

But jokes about the old boyfriend would be in poor taste.

I will try my hand at composing something for "So Heavy I Fell Through the Earth."

You should know it will be bad, though. I'm just giving you a fair warning!

Nobody wants to do a blues song obviously.

"The Blueshammer tribute to Natalie Portman."

That's me sold.

Kanye O'er Frae France? (Tom D.), Monday, 14 May 2018 16:54 (four months ago) Permalink

Is it possible for the lyrics to recap the Black Swan episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm?

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Monday, 14 May 2018 17:01 (four months ago) Permalink

hfs i saw darq souls and i couldn't believe that was for real, maybe in part for dungeon related reasons.

Hunt3r, Monday, 14 May 2018 17:06 (four months ago) Permalink

kinda pictured Black Swan Blues as a T-Rex/Goldfrapp style

Hazy Maze Cave (Adam Bruneau), Monday, 14 May 2018 17:15 (four months ago) Permalink

my initial approach to "B4 the fever" will be via "After the Fall" by Klaus Nomi

Hazy Maze Cave (Adam Bruneau), Monday, 14 May 2018 17:17 (four months ago) Permalink

Aww, I thought it would be inspired by "Get Down" by B4-4.

MarkoP, Monday, 14 May 2018 17:22 (four months ago) Permalink

Mine's will be inspired by this:

How many of these posters are women?

we æt so many shimripl (Whiney G. Weingarten), Monday, 14 May 2018 17:29 (four months ago) Permalink

Frankly been wondering that myself. But I'm not surprised, sadly.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 14 May 2018 17:30 (four months ago) Permalink

This would be the first pre-cover of a woman musician?

how's life, Monday, 14 May 2018 17:33 (four months ago) Permalink

Almost (Gillian, New Order).

Ned Raggett, Monday, 14 May 2018 17:35 (four months ago) Permalink

I wouldn’t be surprised if it was all men... but then, what’s the proportion of male/female posters on ilm ?

AlXTC from Paris, Monday, 14 May 2018 17:57 (four months ago) Permalink

idk
i exist

i also did not volunteer to make a track for this because i know nothing about grimes

You don't have to know anything about Grimes though.

Kanye O'er Frae France? (Tom D.), Monday, 14 May 2018 18:09 (four months ago) Permalink

beyond not being familiar with her music at all, i can't say i feel particularly motivated to do this tbh

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Monday, 14 May 2018 18:13 (four months ago) Permalink

I can rescind my contribution to "So Heavy I Fell Through the Earth" so a woman can be included in this project.

Please let me know if someone is interested in taking over.

the sound of space, Monday, 14 May 2018 18:16 (four months ago) Permalink

A woman will definitely be included in this - depending on the demands of her MA course, maybe even in a writing capacity

it's for the best i didn't try to secure one of these, definitely would've sampled our lady peace's "4am" for this one

Actually it's looking more like Monday or Tuesday for me. I just have too much work stuff to take care of. I wouldn't object if you want to put the album out and my track is added later. Really sorry.

Extensions to Tuesday granted under pain of death. Submissions on July 4th, especially from overseas, will be treated as mockery of Our Wonderful Nation.

OK I just finished mine, I recorded it all on my 4 track and it is totally cooked. Used varispeed for vocals to get em high but ended up sounding like Ariel Pink. Sending in ASAP.

Sorry guys. Been away for hols w/ a non working phone for some days. Will not be able to make it either. Dabbled with going the Aphex way and just hand in an old tune but that goes against the spirit of these projects. But I've got nothing, sorry.

lbi's life of limitless european glamour (Le Bateau Ivre), Sunday, 1 July 2018 16:57 (two months ago) Permalink

just sent mine in. it's.... kind of messy... heh. i could not settle on an approach so it's 3 or 4 different things all running together. it's really kind of noisey in parts but at least it's the last song so if it's too much you can just skip it. i couldn't think of any words so i ended up sampling MGS4 =)

Hazy Maze Cave (Adam Bruneau), Sunday, 1 July 2018 18:38 (two months ago) Permalink

Okay...here's where we're at. Asterisks mean I have your track. So the remaining two can be named and shamed. If you will. But they confessed their sins above so I wait patiently. (As Ross sent a remix too, that has now magically become '4aem' as LBI needed to withdraw. You know, the ambient reworking. Kinda.)
