Batten down the hatches, bar the doors and rock the fuck out, ILX. The theme is quite simply the COVID-19 pandemic, but you are encouraged to interpret this brief as creatively as possible.

Dropbox (or similar) links containing YOUR SUBMISSIONS are to be sent to imagoleuthic at gmail dot com as and when you're satisfied with/sick of them.

I will try to accept everything I receive, but sequencing is at the compere's discretion. Your homebound tweens' 14-minute utensil raga might be kicking things off, you never know.

I got Live 10. That’s a step. Whether I remember how to do anything with it, tbd.

I have a child's accordion that I purchased by mistake that I am looking forward to using on this.

Somewhere a child is broken-hearted.

I have a surprisingly muscular-sounding cigar-box one-string electric bass, and am wondering how to make it collaborate with a child's accordion

Oh, and it's fretless too #microtonal

Suite for One-String Fretless Electric Bass and Child's Accordion? It virtually writes itself.

I already made something, will keep fiddling with it for a while before going back to the original version I expect.

Working on it.

Have been looking for a home for my soca cover of Down With The Sickness for a while so this is kind of fortuitous.

ShariVari, Wednesday, 18 March 2020 10:05 (three weeks ago) link

lol

Should be a special prize for a chutney cover of 'Jogging' imo

Le Bateau Ivre, Wednesday, 18 March 2020 10:08 (three weeks ago) link

I want to do this, although I haven't been inside long enough to crack open the recording gear.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Wednesday, 18 March 2020 13:36 (three weeks ago) link

I like this idea but I've never participated. Any guidelines? Is it music and video? Or just music? If so, what kind of music? :)

daavid, Wednesday, 18 March 2020 19:15 (three weeks ago) link

any music you can muster

if you want to provide a music video...idk, that could a nice addition. not saying i'm putting this on bandcamp just yet but

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Wednesday, 18 March 2020 19:20 (three weeks ago) link

OK, thanks!

daavid, Wednesday, 18 March 2020 19:26 (three weeks ago) link

I should warn you my contribution might be very long.

God gave toilets rolls to you, gave toilet rolls to you (Tom D.), Wednesday, 18 March 2020 19:35 (three weeks ago) link

How long we talking?

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Wednesday, 18 March 2020 19:44 (three weeks ago) link

I'm sure it'll fit in somewhere

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Wednesday, 18 March 2020 19:45 (three weeks ago) link

To the out-of-context thread! -_-

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Wednesday, 18 March 2020 19:45 (three weeks ago) link

I don't know, anything from 5 minutes to half an hour, I'm still working out what I'm going to do.

Free-form plague poetry over a VCS3 freakout is my suggestion

itt: an excellent bunch of ilxors

hope ideas and inklings are beginning to congeal, or at least offer a glimmer of existence

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Tuesday, 24 March 2020 15:30 (two weeks ago) link

I have ample time and wherewithal but my ability to make music is perhaps hampered by lack of music-making tools and, well, musical ability. Still, put me down as a 'maybe'.

Unparalleled Elegance (Old Lunch), Tuesday, 24 March 2020 15:40 (two weeks ago) link

I've kind of got soundtracked into doing another piece of music for something else, but I'll get round to it eventually... hopefully.

... sidetracked not soundtracked! Wow, that was a good one!

I started off a Belgian New Beat thing but it didn't seem entirely fitting with the lockdown langour so i have gone glacial and repetitive instead.

ShariVari, Friday, 27 March 2020 08:43 (one week ago) link

I finished a thing, just trying to give it a name.

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Friday, 27 March 2020 10:38 (one week ago) link

I have started a thing, hoping to work more on it over the weekend.

Maresn3st, Friday, 27 March 2020 15:16 (one week ago) link

Two submissions so far, both sounding lovely. Hard at work on my track - I hope you all are likewise!
