What are the plans for mastering? There are loads of affordable services that include reel tape transfers and other cool stuff. I even saw a service on fiverr that cuts the master tape into pieces so you could include a snippet in the first CD package batch.

Not sure what you mean by 'including a snippet in the first CD package batch'?

As for mastering plans, I do want this one to be professionally mastered (or at least done by someone who knows what they're doing).

They send you the actual master TAPE.

You cut it into "X" pieces and each CD is bundled with a piece of the tape.  Cool nostalgic gift.

I tied up a few of my zines with tape from a cassette of mine.

They still use analogue tapes in the mastering process? I would think they would have phased that out for an all-digital workflow...

Outboard gear is a priority for studios in their quest for the elusive Mojo™, usually through the subtle sweetening of tubes and transformers. Digital processes are mostly preferred for surgical fixes or loudness efforts. This doesn't necessarily involve any tape, that's just some icing on the cake in case it flatters the music. High tape speeds are cleaner than you'd expect - some super audiophile labels only release on reel tapes and even Lady Gaga opted for it on the Joanne album. I suspect there are more than a few here who like the sound... maybe not all.

I'm still trying to get the storage issues for the forum in general sorted out - plus I've got a potentially big thing in the works if it comes to fruition that might delay this... but trust me, this is like Autechre AAA or Caustic Window Kickstarter levels. If it doesn't pan out then WATMM Volume 2 will be the priority.

Stay tuned!

This sounds great, I am an animator and a designer and can make some T-shirt designs as well as video loops for insta or youtube or whatever you like to have as video promo material(think Weirdcore, or whatever). Pm me for details. And I do have a couple of tracks that suite this idea I hope you like em, will post them later.

Pedant: he was born in Ireland, but was raised in Cornwall. Now lives in Scotland!

I wonder if he goes around for sugar at Hexagon Sun?

      evening all,
       
      ?? those who follow me on social media may have caught wind of this already, but I've taken it upon myself to curate a [what is now shaping up to be a massive] tribute album to Leyland Kirby in regards to his Caretaker project - I've already received an upwards of 30 quality submissions in a matter of a week - at this point, I'm thinking I'll cut it off at 72 tracks as a nod to Theoretically pure anterograde amnesia - figured now is the time to open up submissions to watmm artists.
       
      for those interested in contributing -- tracks would need to fall in line with the style of the Caretaker material (i.e. haunted ballroom music, dark ambient drones, noise, subdued sampling of 1920's and 1930's jazz, orchestral, and big band music - original compositions are welcome, as is any "Shining" fanfare (as long as it's not too 'disruptive').   track length should preferably not exceed 10 minutes - no intentional remixes of existing Caretaker tracks, no trap beats (you wouldn't think I'd have to say that, but seeing as how I received 3 already), i'd also suggest steering clear of sampling "Midnight, The Stars, And You" - email submissions (.wav) to [email protected] - general inquiries can be addressed there as well.   the loose deadline for now is August, might possibly release it in October, or at least some time after Stage 3 of Everywhere At The End Of Time has soaked in a bit - this should give everyone ample time to turn in tracks - right now I'm thinking this will be released via a one-off bandcamp page, sold digitally - that's not to say arrangements won't be made with a label, if it's a deemed a worthy venture (physical run, etc).   in the spirit of the subject matter, all digital proceeds will be donated to the Alzheimer's Association, which aims to advance research, and enhance care for those living with Alzheimer's and dementia.   hope to hear from some of you!   regards, Alex / Nmesh

      Hey 
       
      I will be updating this thread with our latest releases! I missed the last one so this will include our last two compilations, if you dig it go check out the rest on our Soundcloud and Bandcamp. 
       
      A mighty 45 track beast from back in May, a true insight into the modern day braindance scene and the folks trying to make things happen outside of senpai level artists. 
      https://elmc.bandcamp.com/album/egregore 

       
      Our first collaboration effort, unused tracks from 3 artists all using parts of each others to create new and interesting sounds with je1ku (USA), illocanblo (Russia) and Dr. Doctor (UK)
      https://elmc.bandcamp.com/album/i-x-d-d-x-j

       
      The second release from morphlex graced our release page with this fantastic 6 track IDM EP, all analogue modular for those that care about that kind of thing! Wicked sounds from a very talented bloke 
      https://morphlex.bandcamp.com/album/midi-parlor

       
      Recently we have released a more focused compilation gearing more towards the braindance/techno side of things!
