End of May sound good? Start of June? Anyway, please send your LOSSLESS FILES (nothing else please or I'll have to convert them all again) to my username-affiliated email address, and we'll kick off the POST-COVID SORT OF POST-COVID SUMMER with a RIGHT PROPER BANG

I'm tentatively signing up. I have parts of a song written, but need to get some gear/repairs before I can really make it happen the way I want.

Mr. Cacciatore (Moodles), Tuesday, 27 April 2021 21:25 (five months ago) link

MP3 only? no thanks I'm out. Use lossless distribution on Bandcamp or nothing...

Elvis Telecom, Tuesday, 27 April 2021 21:28 (five months ago) link

Oh wait I got completely confused lol

imago, Tuesday, 27 April 2021 21:32 (five months ago) link

I actually mean send your FLACS, WAVS or AIFS ONLY to me. NO MP3S. Fucksake. I knew it was one or the other

imago, Tuesday, 27 April 2021 21:34 (five months ago) link

I'm in!

The power of persuasion

Oh, I thought I’d missed this.

Yeah, let’s do summat

Is there some kind of theme for this?

Constraints?

Or will any song about any topic will do?

(I haven't participated in any of these compilations before, only the album pre-covers)

daavid, Wednesday, 28 April 2021 05:29 (five months ago) link

I think...try and make it a little bit celebratory or hedonistic. Even if ironically

imago, Wednesday, 28 April 2021 07:52 (five months ago) link

I'm in!

paolo, Wednesday, 28 April 2021 07:52 (five months ago) link

Yes !

Isn't the theme in the thread title ?
I've started something around that idea, anyway.

AlXTC from Paris, Wednesday, 28 April 2021 10:06 (five months ago) link

I'm in, as long as I can send a 32kbps RealPlayer file

Maresn3st, Wednesday, 28 April 2021 13:58 (five months ago) link

Can we send a cassette ?

Thanks. I'm in!

Are cover versions allowed LJ? I have something in mind.

Maresn3st, Friday, 30 April 2021 15:35 (five months ago) link

Oh, that's a good idea, I might do one myself.

MY DEMANDS HAVE NOT BEEN MET OR EVEN ACKNOWLEDGED

i'm dizzy btw.

Totally different head. Totally. (Austin), Saturday, 1 May 2021 22:53 (five months ago) link

completely unrelated and completely on a serious note here—

really excited for this. i've been dealing with some personal stuff a lot the past few months. just last week, i was ambulanced away to the er in the middle of the night because i thought i was experiencing something seriously going bad with my heart. i'm lucky i wasn't 5150'd. it was just anxiety, but that should give you an idea of what it's been like.

i haven't recorded any music —or even played / practiced regularly— in nearly a month.

started working on my tune last night. instant relief. usually when i record i will just track and mix everything in marathon sessions, which has its pros and cons. but this? i'm gonna take my time and do my absolute best on this one — not that i don't normally, but sometimes you get a little woozy towards the end of nine hours of playing and mixing, obviously.

i <3 u ilx

Totally different head. Totally. (Austin), Sunday, 2 May 2021 15:39 (five months ago) link

hey imago, i used the ilx email form thingy and sent you a google drive link for mine. just fyi.

stoked for this, btw.

Totally different head. Totally. (Austin), Saturday, 8 May 2021 15:12 (five months ago) link

I hope you're feeling better now.

This is an interesting challenge for me because I'm feeling good about the end of lockdown but the music I normally make isn't what you'd call upbeat or optimistic.

paolo, Sunday, 9 May 2021 08:28 (five months ago) link

nvm, count me out.

stay clever.

Totally different head. Totally. (Austin), Tuesday, 11 May 2021 18:00 (five months ago) link

is it too late for me join in for this?

and austin, how come? hope you'll at least post your jams on bandcamp, i always enjoy them

Zach_TBD (Karl Malone), Tuesday, 11 May 2021 18:01 (five months ago) link

I'm in! Link sent.

Noel Emits, Wednesday, 19 May 2021 08:43 (five months ago) link

I've done most of the work over the weekend. I still have to record the vocals and mix the whole thing.

AlXTC from Paris, Wednesday, 19 May 2021 10:47 (five months ago) link

I’ll aim to send my lo-fi beats to study / relax to over the weekend.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Wednesday, 19 May 2021 10:52 (five months ago) link

Excellent, excellent...

imago, Wednesday, 19 May 2021 11:03 (five months ago) link

I opted for a cover version, nearly done, what's our deadline?

Maresn3st, Wednesday, 19 May 2021 13:55 (five months ago) link

Being cheap is expensive (snoball), Saturday, 5 June 2021 12:49 (four months ago) link

Yo imago I sent you a message to ask for your email address, did you get it?

paolo, Friday, 2 July 2021 13:56 (three months ago) link

(My entry is done)

paolo, Friday, 2 July 2021 13:57 (three months ago) link

my username + 'leuthic' at the usual...

looking forward to it, things have taken a turn for the extremely slow, think of this as a later-in-the-summer job

imago, Friday, 2 July 2021 14:04 (three months ago) link

I'll have something for you soon.

I was kinda wondering if this was going to slide off the table, good to know we're still happening.

Maresn3st, Friday, 2 July 2021 21:11 (three months ago) link

my son wants to submit a song

class project pat (m bison), Friday, 2 July 2021 21:19 (three months ago) link

he can submit multiple songs

imago, Friday, 2 July 2021 21:23 (three months ago) link

a suite of son-songs

LJ seems to be on a major sabbatical so this has slid off the table, out the front door and down the nearest drain. A pity as I've got stuff ready to go now!

have in fact made a tentative return to ILM (and ILB) only, so uh if people still want to do this and if I haven't burnt too many bridges then go for it!

imago, Saturday, 9 October 2021 11:31 (one week ago) link

Get it out in time for Christmas at least.

I have ambient synth to contribute, which is a genre of music that no one is exploring in 2021

Excellent. Thanks LJ.

I think you have mine already but let me know if you need me to resend.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Saturday, 9 October 2021 16:34 (one week ago) link

Same here. I can resend mine if required.

Being cheap is expensive (snoball), Saturday, 9 October 2021 17:29 (one week ago) link

Maybe I should attempt to finish one of the half dozen tracks I started

Mr. Cacciatore (Moodles), Saturday, 9 October 2021 18:49 (one week ago) link

I'm fairly sure I sent in my entry. Did you receive it?

paolo, Sunday, 10 October 2021 09:49 (one week ago) link

I've got three or four possibles, not sure which is most appropriate for a crawling out of lockdown comp.

... but I've just finished a new track tonight so I'm going to use that one instead.
