yeah, I think that was the funniest to do due to that constraint (and the crazy length of most of the original tracks) !

haha yeah; this is why my contribution to that is effectively two separate songs welded together that is a strong ripoff in build and structure of "Insomnia" by Faithless

I did my Bowie one to that constraint, even though I know most people didn't.

My faves are Lulu and the Sciento_Ogy one. A classic year for ilx comps.

For overall quality, I still think Vol3 "has a bucket" is a good starting place, but Lulu is .

Mark G, Tuesday, 24 January 2017 17:46 (three years ago) link

Oh lol, I totally forgot about ENGLANDE.

emil.y, Tuesday, 24 January 2017 17:52 (three years ago) link

There should be an (online) ILX festival with all these : ILXapalooza !

There was one, it was linked to Vol 3.

And now, I can locate them on my Discogs Collection!

This one?

How good is A.I. at creating chart hits? Trained a neural network (in Torch) on the history of the UK charts and let it come up with its own Top 40. Good to see a mix of genres. #aitop40 pic.twitter.com/hJLdWmbssz

The Death Of The UK Chart Single?

Being cheap is expensive (snoball), Sunday, 15 March 2020 18:13 (three months ago) link

yes. could make artwork as well as tracks?

Wuhan!! Got You All in Check (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Sunday, 15 March 2020 18:21 (three months ago) link

I’m in.

ShariVari, Sunday, 15 March 2020 18:37 (three months ago) link

also in

majority whip, majority nae nae (m bison), Sunday, 15 March 2020 18:52 (three months ago) link

but not the ai shit, just a playlist of our songs

majority whip, majority nae nae (m bison), Sunday, 15 March 2020 18:53 (three months ago) link

i think the idea was that we would make our own songs but our artist/song names had to be from that list

either that or pandemic-themed

idk

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Sunday, 15 March 2020 19:15 (three months ago) link

i am favouring a pandemic theme myself but you are all free to argue the toss

'bat love' would be on both themes tbf

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Sunday, 15 March 2020 19:17 (three months ago) link

I am in, with whatever conceit you guys decide to go with.

Maresn3st, Sunday, 15 March 2020 19:44 (three months ago) link

pandemic theme 4 sure

majority whip, majority nae nae (m bison), Sunday, 15 March 2020 19:46 (three months ago) link

Songs of our own devising or cover tunes with apt titles?

Maresn3st, Sunday, 15 March 2020 19:50 (three months ago) link

songs of our own imo

majority whip, majority nae nae (m bison), Sunday, 15 March 2020 19:52 (three months ago) link

in whatever, but would be better were there an overarching concept to at least name the tracks

Wuhan!! Got You All in Check (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Sunday, 15 March 2020 20:06 (three months ago) link

that concept, is COVID

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Sunday, 15 March 2020 20:08 (three months ago) link

I'm in, although the COVID theme may be a little tenuous as it'll probably be instrumental.

XP - Just make sure there's some ill beatz bro.

Maresn3st, Sunday, 15 March 2020 20:14 (three months ago) link

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Sunday, 15 March 2020 20:18 (three months ago) link

Think you are?

Wuhan!! Got You All in Check (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Sunday, 15 March 2020 20:47 (three months ago) link

let me think of how to collate the songs and i might

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Sunday, 15 March 2020 20:48 (three months ago) link

if anyone is good at this and has done this before and wants to do it then feel free to volunteer though

Testing

Mark G, Monday, 16 March 2020 09:18 (three months ago) link

I'm in for a song, whatever the concept (but maybe it would be more timely to make a specific virus/epidemic related comp ?).
Gotta find something to do since I'm stuck at home for at least 2 weeks !

Think we are just going for a coronavirus theme now, dl

pre-emptively calling dibs on "Kraftwerk in a Blackout"

Elvis Telecom, Monday, 16 March 2020 20:52 (three months ago) link

Is there a theme for this, or can it be whatever we want? Because I already wrote lyrics for 'For The Sour' from the AI Top 40.
