I had mentioned this in the thread about the earthquake when it happened, and a couple people seemed interested.

Basically I'm thinking we can do a UG album to sell, and donate all the profits to Japan. We could go with a theme to keep it organized, like Jrock/Jpop covers, or Japanese inspired Marty Friedman-style instrumentals. Anyone else up for it?

I would definitely be up for it, but The Anime Thread was already planning on starting up our second UG album, so maybe we could combine the two or something. I don't know.

This reminds me... what ever happened to the Benefit Album?

I'd totally be in on that. Maybe this time I'll actually have time to submit something decent.

I've never done one of these UG albums before, do they usually have a limit on how many songs you can do? If so, I might throw that out the window since this is for charity. I've got so many songs I want to do, it'll be hard to choose just one.

Depending on the deadline, I may get something in.

I want something in.


But it should definitely be japan themed.

This won't work. The Australian flood album is still in post-production, and that was months ago. You won't be able to get it together and sorted.

Don't be such a Debby Downer mate. I'm sure we could pull it off if a few more people were interested in helping.

Difference being is the entire anime thread will likely back this.. There's not a BBQ and Fosters thread anywhere

I think if we're gonna do this, I'll need help. Like I said, I've never participated in one pf these albums, much less organized one.

The Australian Flood album fell apart because hardly anybody would volunteer to help out. If there are dedicated people, it can work.


This.

You could use your experience as a guide though.

Two points first off.

1. You need a designated charity, as well as contact information and a method for transactions that does not involve you.

2. You need to get it done and released fast. I'm talking within the month.

I can get it front page exposure that would greatly increase sales, as well as open up other promotional avenues, but I can't do that without a complete product.

This is what I needed help with. Is there a specific charity anyone would recommend?

I'm not too familiar with many charities, but I assume Red Cross is probably doing something. Don't quote me on that, though.

I was looking at convoy of hope, mostly because my church supports them and I've worked with a project run by them before.

The Japanese Red Cross is accepting donations.

All details are on this page - http://www.jrc.or.jp/english/relief/l4/Vcms4_00002070.html

Red Cross are doing shit and will take the donations hell if i know how much they'd actually do in regards to actually helping with what we are doing here


The biggest community of musicians that the world has ever seen does not need help from the Red Cross, we just need them to hold out their hands while we generate.

If TS can confirm the donation details then we can move onto the next step: submissions.

I'll submit my song too.

I think some of you guys are planning to do covers. Just keep the legalities in mind.


UG will not support any album containing unlicensed covers.
#30
I thought covers were okay since this is non-profit?

You still need the permission from the original artist to use their work. It's protected under Copywrite law, whether you earn anything from it or not.

Also I'd be up for this. If we could set a theme of some kind !
#32
FUUUUU-

Okay, originals it is. Does anyone have any ideas on how we can give it a theme?

Speed will be of the essence either way, before the media eye begins to wane.

I would suggest not bothering with a theme, getting in as many submissions as possible, then setting a theme with the pieces as you put everything together.

So get as many submissions as possible, then choose a theme based on what we have?

Just to clarify, should I use every submission, and fit a theme around that? Or should I chose a theme and eliminate the ones that don't fit?

But I still need to contact the charity before moving on to taking submissions, right?

If you get forty submissions, nobody is likely to listen to them all. Make an album out of it that fits rather than just a long list of different stuff.

And yes, you do. Ideally, you could do both at once, but then the Red Cross could say no, and you would look a little silly.
#38
Then couldn't I contact another charity while still taking submissions?

You could, but we would need to have a set charity, with clearly shown information, to give evidence that money isn't going into your pocket.

UG wouldn't like that to be an issue, so having the information clearly available is a requirement. You understand.
