a year ago, pacman shared the 3d template for the collapse cover image logo, so we could use our own photos to make custom logos using blender. i've made a web app that uses his file, and now you can use your phone camera to generate the logo on the fly. try it here with your phone:
use safari if you have an iphone, or chrome if an android phone.
if you want to save the image you're looking at, just touch the camera view. i can't save it directly to your photo roll because of browser security, so a new tab will open containing the snapshot, then you can save/download it the usual ios/android way (as in, hold your finger down on the image).
many thanks to pacman.
Our first compilation, We Are The Music Makers | Volume One came out back in 2004. Since then, I've always wanted to do a Volume 2, following the same formula of having the community contribute tracks, vote on the best tracks by the community, and then have a professional-pressed CD of the release.
It would be great if we could do a vinyl version as well, but of course that costs money - the way we did it back in 2004 was by getting at least 100 preorders to fund the CD pressing. This was long before things like Kickstarter, GoFundMe, etc. changed the crowdfunding landscape. Now, we could do the same, or maybe go the Kickstarter route like we did with the Caustic Window LP? Have stretch goals for vinyl versions, shirts, etc.?
I'm 100% open to ideas, suggestions, etc. on getting this off the ground and making Volume Two a reality (and have fun doing it) - so let's hear some of your ideas and suggestions!
Will there be anything for Warp30? I haven't read / heard anything really. In particular after the big event of Warp20 - with the Fan Selection and stuff - it's so awfully quiet on the Warp front. Any insights apart from maybe a few gigs?
