Okta 3 [now a thing!]

Postby Heraclitus Akimbo » Fri Jul 02, 2021 3:15 pm

Edited top-post info!

Reminder: this will be a two-part process. Participation is both is more fun, but no one's going to give you a look if shit happens and you can't complete one or the other.

Release date will be Friday, October 8 (Bandcamp Friday!), which will therefore give us roughly six weeks for phase 1, and six weeks for phase 2.

Phase 1 tracks should be completed by August 15th.
(I will make a google drive for them)

Proposed tech/time constraints:
All stems/source tracks should be at 24 bit 48k resolution / under ten minutes.
Experience has taught us that for the stems, shorter is generally better.
Experience has also taught us that for the stems, basic is better. Fewer effects, less "produced", less elaborate, less structured — after all, someone else is going to add their own effects/structure when they build their track in phase 2.

Participants!

Original post as follows:

Testing the waters! In each of the last two summers we did a collaborative ambient project that wrapped up somewhere around Labour Day (or, "the start of September" for those of you outside Canada/U.S.A.).

They sounded like this:
Okta: Ambient Collaborations 1
Okta: Ambient Collaborations 2

We even managed to raise a little $$ towards ILF's hosting costs through bandcamp sales.

These were done as a two-part project: first, people would make sounds and contribute them to a shared pool; then folks would use other people's sounds to construct a track, adding effects and otherwise manipulating things as they saw fit.

Question: do we wanna do it again? Looking for expressions of interest.

Important: you don't have to be "good" or "a pro" to participate! (I'm not!) You just have to be interested in making sounds and layering sounds in the broadly-defined ambient idiom.

If you are interested, please say so here so we can see if we have a quorum. I'm also not dictatorially locked in to any aspects of how things were done in the previous go-rounds, so I'm open to discussions of workflow, etc.

I just got a microphone cable that works so I could experimentally record some sounds.

Excellent! I will compile names tomorrow-ish and top-post a sort of round-up with concepts/vague deadlines.

Still time + room for more folks!

Will be in a cabin for much of august without any guitars, so hopefully I can get something in within the next month.

I'm in - I was listening to my contributions to the first two only a couple of days ago and liking that using other people's sounds makes what I do very different.
