We Are The Music Makers | Volume Two (PLANNING & DISCUSSION)

Seems like an easy thing to do would be have “contests” like this all the time, create a bandcamp that’s a label, and constantly put out releases. Or- is the fear that it would turn into a huge circle jerk that would already most likely end up in the “recent works” thread?

My thoughts are that people outside watmm would listen. I know from experience that I randomly checked out what you guys were doing over the past 15 years, but wasn’t really online enough to care about creating an acct or posting. But @Braintreegot us all hip to you guys way back then and we dug the site and looked into the artists who posted here. So, I’m sure there are others like that out there.

That's pretty much what happened here when we still had the yearly Most IDM and Christmas albums - https://cytoplantastic.bandcamp.com/

Possibly speak to @Root5 who had the mammoth organisational skills to pull all of that together back in the day 🙂

EDIT: Ah, just checked their profile:

I actually made a track for that deep sea creature's compilation... I never got the guts to release it though 😞

Also, hah I knew I did one of those p168 projects... glad my shit is up there somewhere I still like this track

      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!
