Eveyboday, EVERBODAYYAHEY, everybody sign up!


Okay so in the Febuary 29 Day Album Challenge Release Thread there was some talk of this, after me doing a split EP with myself because I was forever alone, and really wanted to make one anyway. S[, the goal is to make a SPLIT EP/ALBUM/SINGLE with another user of UG. So here we go, what you do to participate:

  • Post in this thread to find users you'd like to work with
  • Write songs (must be ORIGINAL material you've written from AFTER you've signed up).
  • Try to record them in a way to make a coherent piece (we don't want a split with professional quality songs and then rockband mic jame sessions, now do we?) THIS IS THE HARD PART.
  • Put those sexy bitches together, make some album art
  • ??????
  • Release it for free in the release thread !!!!


There is no time requirement, it can be as short/long as you please. The only song requirement is that both artist must write AT LEAST one song all by themselves. You can have covers if you'd like, if you really want you may have a cover split EP, but I'd prefer to keep it more original. I'm hoping to have this out by June. So the main challenge is making the songs work together, other than that it is very stress free challenge. I think it's a good community effort thing, and you'll learn to love and hate one specific user, so please sign up! And feel free to post any progress you have or blogs in this thread so we can keep it alive. I will not let it die, just so you know, so you might as well participate.

FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE SIGNING UP/LOOKING FOR USERS: I will put you in a list at the bottom, so include your genre of preference, influences, or whatever, and if you have it I will link your music to your name so people can hear what you are capable of.

Also, this is my first time making a planning thread so if I've forgotten anything, am generally stupid, or made any mistakes let me know.

ANOTHER ALSO: You can collaborate with more than one user, but it must be a split. So two distinct artists.

Users signed up and looking :
Gerard_xD
Iommipage (Post-rock/punk/blues)
S0n1c '97 (Prog)
turncoat60% (chill ambient folk/acoustic jams)
korinaflyingv (atmospheric/traditional folkiness)

Fuck you, I'm out. No point now.
To be vulnerable is needed most of all, if you intend to truly fall apart.

So your involvement in the split would tarnish it from being an unbiased piece of work.

I'm doing this for your own good, and my God, that's an odd obsession.

I might have to do a split with goest.

When is this all happening though?
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

The OP says by June, but I'm not sure if that's an official set date.

Yeah I didn't want this to be like the Febuary thing where only 4/5 people were able to finish, so I'm saying June just as a general idea. I want us to do it, but I don't want us not to because there is no deadline so I'm saying definitely by June.
#13
Fuck it. I'll actually join this. I don't know how I'm going to do it, but I'll manage somehow. Sign me up.
#14
Who else is definitely in? I feel like putting Due in even though he hasn't been here yet, just because I want more of his music
#15
I'm definitely in, and if goest doesn't want to do this, Blake can do one with me.

I don't know what type of music I'd want to do, I suppose it depends on who I did it with, but I like the idea of maybe some sort of folk/sludge metal. I don't know really.

I'm in. Any sort of emo/alternative/pop-punk type stuff is cool with me. I need a drummer.


Actually, whoomit can have Due. I'm with you.
#19
What if we have a split within a split within a split that is within the first split?

I put a ton of my capital into SW Airlines... The next day, THE NEXT DAY these nutters fly into the WTC. What the hell? Apparently no one wanted to fly anymore, and I was like "What gives? God damnit Osama, let me win a fuggin' game!"

I'll offer to do drums for people. I don't know if I can get decent quality though, I don't know if we'll get time at the band's studio or not

If not then I can still get this kind of quality if that's what you're looking for:

OWH HARROW!

So you know, my stuff could consist of absolutely any shite... Might include some hip-hop, might not. Might include some metal, might not. Might include stupid shit, might not. Might include electronic stuff, might not

Cool idea, I really wish I could commit to it, but no recording means/decent singing voice/my band wouldn't be up for it.

Sounds swag then. You wanna do a single or EP?
#29
I'd be down for this.

If anyone wants to team up with me, I write mostly prog rock/metal, with some acoustic stuff. Nu metal is a guilty pleasure, so you might hear some touches of that too. I record in pretty poor quality, fyi. Check the first link in my sig for examples. Listen to a coupe of the songs, and let me know if you're interested. I'll try not to write stuff that sucks.
#30
I can do drums for anyone who can get the basic MIDI files to me.

Also, who is definitely together?

Could do an EP with however many songs each, and then a split song as well?

It doesn't have to be high quality, it's just good fun, so if you can get anything together at all you should try Acoustic EP's are always boss.

You should try to get one of the post-rock guys!

Well I've been working on my singing a bit lately, I'm sure if this threads still going in a month or two I'll have some sort of low-quality acoustic track to offer, haha.
