• Facepunch Collab Album VIII: Wait, Facepunch can count to eight?
    194 replies, posted
Welcome to the eighth Facepunch collaborative album. As the name suggests, there have been seven of these released before, each of which you can listen to on our [url=http://facepunchcollaborative.bandcamp.com/]Bandcamp page[/url]. Anyone can submit a track. As long as you think yours is good enough and it adheres to the rules laid out below, send it in. Since Pepin did a great job running the last two collaborative albums, I'm going to follow what he did and basically copy and paste all the OP information. That doesn't mean it's not important, though! Make sure you take the time to read it, especially if you're new to these. [highlight][U][B]Important Information[/B][/U][/highlight] [B]The submission deadline is TBA.[/B] [B]Anyone can get in on this.[/B] Any number of artists want to contribute, it just means more tracks. Behold the glory of giant-ass digital releases! [B]No covers or remixes![/B] Not a lot to say really, no covers or remixes, we want original music from you. This isn't to discredit what people can do with covers and remixes, but again, we want original music. [B]Only one entry per person/group.[/B] This one is self explanatory, but I'll explain it anyway. A big part of the album is to give exposure to as many artist as possible. Having an album with someone taking up half the credits would be unequal exposure. Limiting a person to one song also ensures that you send your best material in. Note that if you do a minor collaboration with someone that you can still submit a song of your own. [B]Only in submit music that you think is good enough.[/B] If you have to ask someone if it is good enough to submit, it isn't good enough. If you aren't comfortable with it being the first track on the album, it isn't good enough. [B]There are no genre restrictions.[/B] Feel free to send any genre song you want. [B]All proceeds will go to charity or Bandcamp downloads.[/B] This is still a free album that costs the listener nothing, but since people do donate we have a plan as to what to do with that money. Since there is a limited number of free downloads on Bandcamp, when running low on free downloads the funds will be used to buy more downloads so people can continue downloading the album for free. All other money goes to a charity we decide on. [highlight][U][B]Submission Guideline[/B][/U][/highlight] [B]Format[/B] Your submission must be in [B]wav[/B] format. This may seem annoying, but it pays off, especially when avoiding two pages of someone complaining about the inconsistency (happened with the first release). Be sure to export as wav. [B]Do not convert your mp3 to a wav[/B]. Try to ensure the dynamic range is somewhat leveled. [B]Labeling[/B] To make organizing easy, label your song [Facepunch Username] - [track name] For example, if I made a song called "Canopy", the format would be "Schmoe222 - Canopy". You want to name the very wav file this. It is also important to use your Facepunch username because otherwise there is no way for me to know who sent the song. [B]Where to send[/B] Upload here [url]http://www.sendspace.com/[/url] and then send me the download link in a Facepunch PM. Please note that if you have it uploaded somewhere else as a wav like your Soundcloud, you don't have to upload it to Sendspace, save yourself the time and send me the Soundcloud link. [B]Also, with your submission provide me with a track description, the genre, and a link to where people can get to your music. [I]Do this through a FP PM.[/I]. You can use the following template.[/B] [quote]Song Title: Artist Name: Description: Genre: Music Page: Song Link: Lyrics:[/quote] Example: [quote]Song Title: Don't Stop Eating Artist Name: The Pert Description: This song is about a long lost boy how found out his cancer had cancer and so he decided to go out of his way to find the cure for cancer. The story came to me one night when I was looking at the water, and I realized that negative was a recursive force. Genre: Soft Rock Music Page: [url]http://soundcloud.com/thepert13[/url] Song Link: [url]http://sendspace.com/djslfjdlskfj9i34rjfkdsf[/url] Lyrics: [insert lyrics][/quote] You can take you description in any route you want. Try to write up at least a few sentences for the description. If you can't figure out the genre, approximate, it doesn't really matter. If your song has lyrics, please include them. This information will be used on Bandcamp and in the debut thread and in the liner notes. Also, I don't want to assume where you put your finished music. Some people may have a Soundcloud account, but they put their finished work on Bandcamp. So even if you think it should be obvious, just provide the information in the message. [B]Then what?[/B] Upon receiving it I will send the PM user a message saying I got the track. If you want to send a new/revised version, you can do that, [B]but do not send incomplete tracks[/B]. [highlight][U][B]Track Collaboration[/B][/U][/highlight] If you have musical talent and wouldn't mind collaborating with with someone, make a post providing your skills and some examples and I'll add it here. Likewise, if you're looking for someone to help you out in your project let me know. Make sure that you can record whatever you advertise and in decent quality. [B]Available Musicians[/B] [quote]Chaoswithak (Singing)[/quote] [quote]CheeserCrice (Bass and/or Guitar)[/quote] [B]People Who Need Something[/B] [quote]Pepin (Singing)[/quote] [highlight][U][B]Album Art Ideas[/B][/U][/highlight] The different ideas presented for the album art. Minor variations won't be put up. If you have album art idea, I suggest posting it. If we decided on the album art quick enough, the artist could also pre-make a back cover and liner notes, making it very easy to release the album on time. Keep that in mind, if we decide on your cover, be ready to come up with a back and liner notes. The resolution requirement is 1:1 and it must be at least 500x500px. [highlight][U][B]Reaching a larger audience[/B][/U][/highlight] The whole point of this is exposure, and though Facepunch is a big audience, most people feel the need to expand. The first way to do so is by posting the album thread on other forums, preferably active forums that would take well to these types of projects. Posting it on a forum about quantum physics would be cool, but it is doubtful that it would do much for exposure. The second way to get exposure is to try to get the album on popular blogs. To ensure both processes go well, there will be a compiled list and their contacts. For example, I will post the album on Facepunch, therefore I am the contact. There only needs to be one contact per form. If you post something advertising our album on any website, forum, or blog, let me know. If you find a good website, but don't feel like posting anything, at least send me a link. I'll add it to the list below and anyone who wants to can check it out and write a referral. Also, let me know if you end up advertising in any alternative medium, like a magazine. If you do, though, you obviously don't have to worry about giving me the link. There will be two Humble Bumble Game Packs rewarded to the two best referrers. [quote]Forums[/quote] [quote]Websites[/quote] [quote]Blogs and Magazines[/quote] [highlight][U][B]FAQ[/B][/U][/highlight] [B]Q:[/B] How will the track order be decided? [B]A:[/B] The first couple of tracks will be decided by quality. The rest by random order. [B]Q:[/B] What is the best way to get a hold of you? [B]A:[/B] Through PM. [B]Q:[/B] Will any mastering be done? [B]A:[/B] Yes, I will be level balancing to ensure all the tracks are the same loudness. That is all that will be done. [B]Q:[/B] Does the song I submit have to be made specifically and only for the album? [B]A:[/B] No. If you have a song you've already made you can submit that. If you made a song for a personal album, you can submit that. Also, make sure all people who own the song consent to submitting. If you and your buddy came up with a song, and your buddy doesn't want it going on the Facepunch album, do not submit it. [B]Q:[/B] Is there a limitation on song length? [B]A:[/B] No. [highlight][B]Song Submissions[/B][/highlight] [quote][url=http://www.facepunch.com/members/321078-deggie][img]http://www.facepunch.com/avatar/321078.png?garryis=awesome[/img][/url] deggie - Bogdan Roses [b]Description:[/b] This is what you get when you have no clue what you're doing.

Good show. Check it out. [url]http://myanimelist.net/anime/9314/Fractale[/url] The show really depressed me for some reason. Anyway, definitely check it out (and try not to read reviews about it and just watch it for what it is). Not your typical anime, IMO. Full disclosure though; I am a total weeaboo. Two notes, if I may: The guitar solo is just two improvised solos chopped together. Obviously the harmony part isn't but the original solo part played above it was. Everything was recorded in one take other than the vocals which has one for each verse.

The first verse is a mix of new age meta-physicalism and Christ consciousness (Christianity), explaining a little bit about the conspiracy theories and the things of the past, plus a little bit of instructions for living. First verse, credit BattlePriest. Second verse is about the human population and how it's being manipulated, and about hallucinogenics fucking up your view of life. Credit Weedfingers. The third verse is about a young teen pregnancy, and how the male in the relationship is handling it and trying to cope.

I can do bass or some guitar stuff if any one would like.

[QUOTE=T.F.W.O.;34169890]I'll probably submit an old track of mine unless someone wants to collaborate.[/QUOTE] I'd be down to collab.
