"This has now gone on far too seriously long enough by half, OK?"

     

We're past the one year mark. One year to write one track.

      01)Dr Syntax Head  -  Done, but yet to send the master file?
      02)jonnycuba  -  Done
      03)gabrielconroy  -  "needs tidying up and some parts added"
      04)Beagle 2  -  Done, but still need to retrieve from other PC?
      05)drummersaredeaf  -  Done, but unsubmitted?
      06)NoSleep  -  Editing and mixing
      07)Phil_A  -  Done
      08)Dusty Gozongas  -  Done, but mix yet to be finished?
      09)falafel  -  "i promise to get it done by the end of August"
      10)Rich Uncle Skeleton  -  "just taking it easy (...) for a few weeks so I'll get this done"
      11)the  -  Done
      12)Johnny Textface  -  "I still intend to contribute"
      13)ArtParrott  -  Said they would submit a track by the start of August
      14)Petey Pate  -  "I'm still contributing"
      15)Avril Lavigne  -  Dropped out - Anyone want to take the place?
      16)thraxx  -  Had to start again, but still in


If you have red next to your name - can you:
- Give us an update on how complete it is, and ideally,
- Finish your track and submit it.

Thanks attack


How to submit your track

Output it as WAV or AIFF, preferably 24 Bit @ 44.1 kHz. If you can't do this for some reason, PM NoSleep and an arrangement can probably be made to accomodate what you can manage.

NoSleep will be doing the final album master when all the tracks are in place.
So your output file shouldn't have any final hard limiting or brickwall compression applied to it (basically, don't do a final crunch of the volume/dynamics, as you might if releasing the track yourself).
Keep all peaks below full volume (0db) so that it's not distorted and he has some headroom to work with.

Upload your file to your Dropbox or similar upload service (https://wetransfer.com is good for short-term uploads). Then PM NoSleep with the link to your file.

Thanksula

So that's 40% of the tracks done, which would leap up to 60% once those 'done-but-with-submission-preventing-caveats' get submitted.

Good work, let's keep it up.

Selling my larger pieces of music gear before moving back to England so recording to a deadline now if that helps, if I'm not done by the 13th(?) kick me off. Sorry for the delay.

It's been so long that I find my track massively boring now. But at least it was written with my bit of the film in mind. I mean, I could send it as it is but I could also have another crack at adding a bit of soul to it. I have this Sunday all to myself so I'll have another go at it then and if I can't make any headway I'll send it as it is.

Really fucking sorry. Life is getting in the way. You should probably carry on assuming I am out, though I will try to find time to finish what I started because I did rather like it.

Sorry, I've been busy. No progress on my track from last update. And still waiting on Dr Syntax Head on whether he's going to upgrade from that lo-quality mp3.

Sorry - it's still on my Mac and we're packed up to move house in a couple of weeks. As soon as it's unpacked I can get it.

Sorry yes, fuck.

It's still far from ready, but I am calling in a pal to help me who knows what the fuck he is doing. I did set up everything today to realise that I have forgotten how everything works and that Reaper isn't picking up my midi interface and I have failed to rectify in about 4 hours fucking about today.

I hope to have it ready for Xmas.

Thanks to Johnny for sending his track to me (which is by no means shit).

...

You're welcome to have a go, as Avril Lavigne dropped out and so there's a slot. If you follow the link below and watch 7 minutes of the film from your cue. It's just inspiration for your track; you don't need to write seven minutes of soundtrack (unless that's what you are inspired to do), use it as a springboard.

Updated links to an alternative upload of the 1h51m version of the film (this one isn't literally silent so turn down the sound if you want):

16) thraxx - https://youtu.be/je1bIhS-7G8?t=6295

Petey Pate needs to send you a copy of his track (pm him) so you can hear what you're following on the album for reference, and as soon as you have your own track in reasonable shape (beginning-middle-end, etc) pm a copy to Thraxx for reference (for what it's worth at this late stage).

...

I still haven't heard back from Dusty's mate about a finalised version of his track; I'll give him a bump via email. I do have a version of Dusty's track to fall back on if I don't hear from his mate (and it's in good shape to my ears). Preferably I want to follow Dusty's wish to have his  friend take a look at it.

I've just checked and Dr Syntax Head hasn't been seen around these parts since last September. Last we heard he had lost the song from his computer but had previously sent a 128kbpm mp3 to jonnycuba. I asked him to redo the track but did not hear back.

I'd be happy for you to fill in for him. As it's the opening track you haven't got to worry about what you're following, but I could send you a copy of jonnycuba's track at this late stage, so you can hear what he did in reaction to Dr Syntax Head's mp3. All you need to do is watch the 7 minutes of the film following the link below and use it as a springboard for your own track. You're not obliged to create 7 minutes of soundtrack (unless that's what you decide to do), just write a bit of music after watching (with the sound turned down) that relates, in whatever way you decide, to the clip.
