Hey there audio guys and gals! Do you think you have what it takes to be on an album, but have never had the chance to put one together yourself? Do you think you need more experience, and want to learn a lot from other artists? Do you to simply be involved in a giant newgrounds audio collaboration and have loads of gooey musical fun? Then read on!
A month ago or so, I created a thread with an idea. With the help of multiple people on the forums, this idea sprouted into a full blown project! Now I am typing up this thread in hopes that we can get people to join this massive collaboration.
Basically, we are making an album to be sold in the NG store, and other places as well! To do this, we want YOU to create a brand spankin new song that shows your true talent!
This album will be split up into 4 neatly organized pack containing 2CDs each. Each pack will be sold separately, and will revolve around a certain set of genres that go very well with eachother and are enjoyed together. Here is a list of what each pack will look like:
- Heartwarming, serious themed pack based around the orchestral, folk, jazz, solos, and classical genres."
- Upbeat, dance/grindcore themed pack based around Dubstep, Drum N Bass, progressive, and trance."
- Hardcore, brutal themed pack based around metal, rock, face melters, and others."
- Chill, visual themed pack based around ambient, pop, drone, 8-bit, and experimental/glitch.
We are covering practically every genre out there, even if I didn't type it up on the list above, so we are giving EVERYONE a chance at getting on this album! It is a massive feat, but once all of this is said and done we will have over 100 songs, spread amongst an 8CD collection mastered, put together, and stacked all neat and tidy in some box to be watched over by the big man himself, Tom Pulp.
This project will not only give you a chance at producing your best work yet, but it will allow you to give and receive critique within the audio community! Make friends, gain experience, get yourself out there, and most importantly, have fun!
