I dare ask, but would anyone else be interested in releasing a supplementary remix EP? I've already remixed my track, which would be featured on a hypothetical single. However, if anyone else has remixed their track there could be enough material for an EP. We could even remix each other's tracks if we really wanted to delay the release date.

Well it goes without saying, if anyone's done an alternative version of theirs or an additional track, hold onto it for now and we could put it out afterwards on an extra release (as you suggest).

Same goes for if anyone wants to remix a track that's on the album - once it's out and we can all hear it then inspiration may strike the remixers among us.

Who knows?

falafel has delivered a final mix of his tune, though; much appreciated.

I've finally sent something along. Sorry for the ridiculous delay, and unfortunately I didn't change anything in all that time except turning the reverb down a bit just now.

I'd just got a digital piano when I did it originally so went for something a bit silent cinema/Scriabiny. Sort of wish now I'd gone for a mad acid synth track but at least that's another name to cross off the red list.

Sorry to hear that. There's no problem this end; maybe I'll add your old 128kbps version to the collection as a bonus track at the end.

Still not heard from Dusty's mate; will have to work with the last version that Dusty sent me.

Gah, that's horrible Dr Syntax Head, sorry that's happened to you.

In light of that, if you go on to decide that you'll make no further input then let us know and we'll un-red you.


FYI NoSleep, I nudged the remaining contributors a couple of days ago for an update (as nothing's really been said since the start of May).

Are we near touching distance of the finish on this then? The height of summer seems a fitting time to release this soundtrack to a black and white Russian sci-fi film from the 1920s.

Good christ I hope so.

Mastering will take a while, which NoSleep will be kindly fitting into his schedule.

But we need delivered tracks from the remaining participants before mastering can begin.

I PMed thraxx and Rich Uncle Skeleton on July 2nd just for a conversational update, they haven't responded to me. thraxx hasn't been online since that day though.

I was waiting on an update from thraxx before messaging hummingofevil, as hummingofevil mentioned that they had an alternative track for a potential album closer, and thraxx's reply could clarify which way to go there.

Closing in on two years for this. I think if we do another one we should have a strict deadline to get the tracks to NoSleep. If you don't deliver by the date then that's it.

FWIW about a year ago I wanted to start an adjacent album collaboration thingy (a slightly more directional/prescriptive/expeditious one), but in the end I elected not to as I didn't want it to distract from getting this one done.

For transparency - just an addendum to this:

I PMed thraxx and Rich Uncle Skeleton on July 2nd just for a conversational update, they haven't responded to me. thraxx hasn't been online since that day though.

I was waiting on an update from thraxx before messaging hummingofevil, as hummingofevil mentioned that they had an alternative track for a potential album closer, and thraxx's reply could clarify which way to go there.

I additionally contacted Dr Syntax Head on that day, to see if they wished to be taken off the 'awaiting submissions' list (considering what happened) - they didn't respond, but note that they've not been online since June 20th (the day they posted about the theft).

I still haven't messaged hummingofevil.
