UG Acoustic Originals Album (Initial Planning)
 
OP UPDATED JAN 21. SIGNUPS CLOSE JANUARY 14th. SUBMISSIONS DUE... SOMETIME IN FUBUAR-Y FEB 18th

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO FEB 24TH. GET THOSE SUBS IN!




Hey guys. So, this is an idea we kicked around a bit during the planning for the Acoustic Covers II album. Basically ya'll's music and compile it together into a little showcase.

Okay, rules are as follows:
  • Original songs only
  • Try to stay under the 10 minute mark. Lotta people already after one day.
  • Have fun with it. If you're not having fun, I dunno. Track some kazoo or something.
  • Duedate TBD. Plan for something late January/early February. (How does February 17th sound?)

As a general rule, if you can't play it or find someone to play it, don't add it in. If you can't play flute, don't que up your best flute model. MAke a friend, go on a quest, or drop the flute altogether.

With this in mind, know that I'm willing to budge a bit when it comes to modelled pianos. I know not everyone has access to an acoustic one or a reliable way to record one in a quiet studio. Everything else, however, should be recorded acoustically.

So who's in?


The List So Far (An <s> means I've got it safe and sound, an <n> means I haven't gotten a sub from you yet [If it's here, point me in the right direction. I took a look before class today, I might've missed it], anything else please message me!):

I'm game, it'll keep me from procrastinating from my folk album I've been trying to write.

When's the deadline?

L2112Lif 09-17-2012 09:23 PM

Still trying to get this up and running, of course. As soon as I see enough interest in subs I'll figure out a deadline. Plan for something around January-February, to take advantage of school breaks and such.

Horsedick.MPEG 09-17-2012 09:25 PM

Sounds great, plenty of time for procrastination.

gothblade 09-17-2012 09:25 PM

Let me have a go.

I have one song in mind I want to cover anyway. Probably this will motivate mo to learn it :)

The thread title says "originals"

Bushinarin 09-17-2012 09:27 PM

Yo man, I'm yah nigga'.

necrosis1193 09-17-2012 09:32 PM

Does it have to be new material just for this album?

And if so can a rerecording of something else original count?

willT08 09-17-2012 09:38 PM

I'm up for this. I've gotta song on the go, have the chorus written so just need to figure out the verses.

Actually this. I have songs to contribute already, but I can write a new tune too. It doesn't matter.

blake1221 09-17-2012 09:41 PM

In.

L2112Lif 09-17-2012 09:45 PM

If you wanna write a brand new tune for it, that's cool. An acoustic version of a full-on original is kickin' too, if you wanna do that. The idea is just to break out of the acoustic covers mould for a bit, get some community originals out there. I know there are tons of great storytellers and songwriters in the forums, and it'd be nice to get everyone on an album together.

Saint78 09-17-2012 09:47 PM

I failed the Acoustic Covers II album, so I'm in.

My bad. Oh well I guess time to bring out the ol' thinkin cap

Thrashtastic15 09-17-2012 10:39 PM

I have a solid cohesive album full of material that I think is good, but I'm not very good at recording/mixing/whatever the **** I'd have to do to make it sound nice and listenable. Would be willing to give it a go if you boys need more volunteers.

blake1221 09-17-2012 10:46 PM

Do it.

Tag43 09-17-2012 10:46 PM

I for one am very interested.

I'll join.

Oh yeah. Worst case scenario, record and give someone stems or, if they use the same DAW, the project file.

skylerjames13 09-17-2012 10:58 PM

I'm in.
Hopefully I'll be able to get something done.

Crofty89 09-18-2012 06:21 AM

Sign me up. Give me incentive to actually finish one of the half dozen things I've started writing/write something new.
