Early sign up thread for January challenge.

November 6, 2010 5:25 PM

The January challenge will be on the theme of collaboration so our Dear Leader snsranch has asked me to open an early bird thread where we can raise our hands in the air and try to figure out who's going to collaborate with whom, and how the whole thing's gonna work.

Please post up if you have an idea for a collaboration, a skill to offer, a question, or anything else related to the challenge.

Several of us have collaborated in the past on various things so there's also some hive experience on how to make the whole thing work in practical terms, if you have questions about that.

I am really stoked about collaboration, and am certainly going to be reaching out for some help. I'd love to offer my banjo, guitar, or vocals for anyone who's interested.
posted by ORthey at 7:38 PM on November 6, 2010


I can offer vocals, drums, percussion, horn, trumpet, guitbass, basitar, effects, or production.
posted by askmeaboutLOOM at 8:15 PM on November 6, 2010


I have a couple of ideas for collabs, more of which later, but I can offer guitar (electric, acoustic, 12-string, a bit of bass), some keyboards (especially organ/piano), big massed vocal harmonies, and basically anything you can hear on any of my tracks, including the mixing/mastering.
posted by unSane at 8:33 PM on November 6, 2010


Oh, I forgot to mention theremin and, well...noise. If you want some kind of crazy, discordant noise, I'm your man.
posted by askmeaboutLOOM at 9:24 PM on November 6, 2010


I'm in. Will play anything you've ever heard me play, and possibly some things you've never heard me play. Production, too: I'd be keen on mixing/mastering anything that I'm part of.

Oh, and regarding this part of unSane's post:

Can we put in requests? Make a proposition? If so, I'm thinking I'd like to do something this time around with umbĂș...

Random draw, maybe?

I have one idea for collaboration which I'm kind of interested in pursuing. Someone (ie me) supplies a rhythm track along with a chord progression (I'll put a pad on the rhythm track which won't be in the final mix) and then it gets sent out to the collaborators, each of whom adds a track -- instrumental, vocal, percussion, spoken word, whatever -- without hearing the tracks added by the other folk. It all gets sent back to me and I mix it. I would use a pretty simple progression that's easy to work with.

An alternative is to do the same thing in a wheel, so a track gets added, and it gets sent on to the next person, and finally ends up back at me to be mixed.
posted by unSane at 5:34 PM on November 7, 2010


Oh, yeah, and for my other collaboration idea I REALLY REALLY need a female vocalist.
posted by unSane at 5:44 PM on November 7, 2010


OK, one more collaboration idea. This one is entirely conceptual. Imagine a band called THE SLIMENERDS. Their debut single is FETID ANORAK. Execute.

With that last comment unSane is gloriously living up to his user name.

See, specific requests like these I think are easier to deal with outside the confines of a challenge sort of thing. If you want to work with a certain person, it's easy enough to do so at any time (look here), but it'd be real tough for sns to make everyone happy if they're making requests. (It is of course up to sns if he wants to try!)

We've done Exquisite Corpse-style stuff a few times before -- here and here and here. It is fun and I support the existence of more of it.

Yeah, I hear you, Karlos. Good point.

So, here's a suggestion: everyone who signs on as interested here in this thread gets their names written down on a piece of paper by snsranch. He throws these into a hat and starts drawing, coming up with collab partners. How's that sound?

Agreed, random draw. Here's hoping for something completely off the wall! And of course, it wouldn't be terribly fair to pair us with someone we already collaborate with on a regular basis (say, man vs sun and me, or Mulp and reklus)

sounds good. So they're all 2-ways?

Random draw sounds great.

Count me in.

Thanks Karlos and flapjax, that sounds like an excellent and exciting way of doing this. I'm going to be in the mix too, so I'll have my little ranch hands do the drawing.

I'll hold off on it to see if more folks show up. You guys let me know if you think of a certain time frame we should be on.

So they're all 2-ways? Yea, unSane, it sounds like pairs to me. Regarding your idea about the "round robin" really big collaboration, we've done some stuff like that in the past. After I feed my monkeys and whatnot, I'll dig up some links.

unSane, clearly, great minds think alike and thanks for firing up this post. Kick ass.

Well, maybe I should start a round-robin thread once I can post again.
posted by unSane at 6:39 PM on November 8, 2010


As for deadline I suggest have a cut-off for names of Dec 1, post another call just before the deadline, then do the draw immediately. That will give the pairs a month before the challenge opens and two months before it closes. I wonder whether we could prevail on the mods to publicise it somewhat to bring a few new people in?
posted by unSane at 6:41 PM on November 8, 2010


I'm in.

Chances are I won't have enough time in Dec-Jan to contribute something of my own, but I'll gladly add to someone else's song.

unSane, I'm down with that, sounds great. The best way to get an audience broader than MeFiMusic would probably be to take it to MetaTalk. Since the challenges are ongoing and continuous, I don't think I'll take this collaboration there.

While I'm yapping about it though, it's probably the best way to get your Big Ass Project fired up.

I think you should. A call for Mefites to collaborate with each other is something that deserves some more eyeballs than this is currently getting, IMO.

Paging Cortex, but given some of the stuff that's been on MeTa recently I would have thought something like this would come as a welcome relief!

I think a Metatalk post about fishing for non-Music-regulars to get involved in collaborations would be totally great, yeah. I don't know whether it'd be better to do it now or to hold off until we're closer to January, I guess talk amongst yourselves on that front, but the idea seems totally fine.

I'll metaphorically chuck my car keys into the ashtray and await events. Happy to do anything legal. Or illegal if I'm honest (nice oxymoron there). The Gin Palace menu includes the chef's speciality: guitars of the acoustic or electric variety, 6 or 12 string, lovingly tuned and played to a nicety and all served on a floating bed of wonderousness with a garnish of your choice. Yum! Production, engineering and general technical fromage de la maison. No lead singing though. I'm afraid that's off.
posted by MajorDundee at 9:13 AM on November 12, 2010


Actually....I had two additional thoughts about this. I don't really expect either to meet with much enthusiasm, but here goes:

1.We did a great job of covering The Velvet Underground And Nico. It was loads of fun and a lot of people got involved. What about combining that with this challenge - obviously, a different album this time (Dark Side Of The Moon maybe?). It would kind of give a real focus to the collaborations. We could do the same thing we did last time - except sns would be pairing people up and allocating a track for them to tackle. And no complaining about being given "On The Run" or whatever crap track you wind up with. Luck of the draw. No offence to fans of "On The Run", obviously (raises eyes heavenwards)

2. Set aside the "single album" idea. Another idea is that in addition to each pair doing their own thing, everyone involved contributes to a version of this. sns or someone with a sonorous voice to act as compere. Could be really funny.

No? Oh, fuck you then......
posted by MajorDundee at 9:29 AM on November 12, 2010


I like the idea of doing another "cover the album" but with assigned collaborators as well as assigned songs.

But I wouldn't necessarily pick Dark Side of the Moon. So much of that album is a collection of specific synth oscillations, sound effects, etc. (and, having been assigned "Heroin" for the VU challenge, I'm afraid I would be assigned "On The Run" for Dark Side ). The VU and Nico challenge was cool in part because it's an album that is hard to cover - something that nobody really wants to cover but that turned out cool because there was no good way to do it other than to completely change the songs.

How about Purple Rain, Disintegration, or It Takes A Nation Of Millions to Hold Us Back?
posted by The World Famous at 10:34 AM on November 12, 2010


Purple Rain FTW.

All the more reason for you to re-imagine one of his songs in a form that you actually like. And for you to be forced to cover "The Beautiful Ones" (hands-down the worst song on Purple Rain).
posted by The World Famous at 11:38 AM on November 12, 2010


That raised a smile - I've never even heard of "It Takes A Nation etc". I never liked Prince much. The Cure - yes, maybe. So..........hhmmmm this is always the problem - finding something that the majority can agree on. Sticky Fingers? London Calling? The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society? Hunky Dory? Aladdin Sane? The LA's? Electric Ladyland? Blood On The Tracks? Forever Now? Talk Talk Talk? Never Mind The Bollocks Here's The MeFites?

How about some kind of iconic compilation album like C86? Or a "greatest hits" - ABBA would be a cool challenge, for instance. Seriously - great melodies that could be recrafted in interesting new ways. Or ChangesOneBowie. Or.... The Best Of....X. With a compilation we get the variety but it's still coherently covering an album.

shrugs.....
posted by MajorDundee at 11:40 AM on November 12, 2010


actually I meant Forver Changes, although Forever Now is my favourite Furs album. I'll just slip in The Doors debut album as well.
posted by MajorDundee at 11:44 AM on November 12, 2010


Hey, man, I'll do whatever. ABBA's greatest hits would be awesome. If I'm assigned the worst song by a band I hate, I'll still do it.
posted by The World Famous at 11:51 AM on November 12, 2010


Yeah, to be clear, I'll do whatever, I like a challenge even if the challenge is "re-record this thing you don't like."

I just may infuse it with seething resentment.

Correct unSane - you'll recall it was featured on the Greasy Kagoul compilation album (cat. no. Hate 1). Which featured the such long-departed bands as Blaaartt (from Holland, if memory serves), Crud Bucket and The Hairdryers Of Montmartre. The latter of which I must admit to a modest connection with. Ahh, such days, such days....

The problem I have with Prince is that he's such an irritatingly pompous little twat that I can't get beyond that to his music. Naturally (and confidentially entre nous) I'm very close to signing him to Seething Resentment. First up is, aptly, a revision of Little Red Corvette with a jugband and barbershop backing. Fucking rocks man, I can tell you...
posted by MajorDundee at 2:59 PM on November 12, 2010


Okay, here's my Prince anecdote. Many years ago I was working in a TV production company in London, England. We were the first outfit in Britain to move our editing to non-linear (ie computers instead of tape-decks) and as a result we pretty much had a monopoly on editors who knew how to use the equipment.

So Prince decides to tour England, and to have some state-of-the-art multimedia backing which involves recording the concert live and then playing parts of it back on the fly. Or something. Anyway, the point is, he needs non-linear editors STAT, and naturally they call us to see who we can recommend.

However there's one stipulation. They have to be less than five feet tall, as he won't work with anyone taller than him.

I often wondered if this explained why he so often worked with female collaborators, since the only editors who were even in the ballpark were all women.

Fuck the future - let's do it now! That's a much better idea than covering an existing album. I'll start the ball rolling by christening the band Blaaarrtt. They're from Utrecht in the Netherlands. Already signed to Seething Resentment by unSane - he was high at the time (I may have to sack him - gets through shitloads of Charlie). The band currently is in the studio with legendary producer Joop Voormann and waiting for someone to name the album and the tracks they're about to record.....

reminds me of a very non-PC gag someone told me today (no shit). Prince might not like it much.

Guy is driving up to a junction and accidentally rams the car in front up the arse.
The rammed driver gets out, understandably angry.
The rammed driver is a dwarf.
The dwarf stomps up to the car and bangs on the window.
Other driver rolls down the window.
Dwarf yells "I'M NOT HAPPY!!"
Other driver says "Ok, which one are you?"
Fight ensues.

A couple of people made it known in the announcement thread that they wanted to keep this challenge simple. Considering, though, that we have plenty of time and that we're going to put this out to MeTa and may have quite a few participants, it's perfectly reasonable to add another element to it. We might as well go all-out and have some fun with it!

I'd like some more suggestions for bands/albums/artists. If it was left totally up to, I'd go with Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. Just kidding...please don't shoot me!!!!!

What on earth is going on in here? I am baffled by the idea that the "collaboration" challenge -- especially the first time we try it -- suddenly needs extra obligations heaped upon it, particularly when those obligations include, "oh, you're not allowed to do an original song." I am voting against!
posted by Karlos the Jackal at 3:32 PM on November 12, 2010

What on earth is going on in here? Relax man. We're just fooling around. You know how these threads can take unexpected twists and turns. All part of the fun of MeFiMu. If the idea of having some kind of unifying theme underpinning the Jan challenge (be it a cover of an entire album, or a fictitious album or whatever) isn't a runner, no sweat. We have, as the song goes, all the time in the world.
posted by MajorDundee at 3:40 PM on November 12, 2010


Ha, I'm glad you showed up here Karlos! I've spent the last half hour debated whether I should MeMail you.

Honestly, I'm just going with the flow and can see both sides of the issue.

On one hand, this may be the first time collaborating for some people and it would be nice to have a very natural effort without any kind of constraints.

On the other hand this challenge already has the additional element of being assigned a partner and is, by group consensus, going to MeTa for additional players.

We seem to be having a snow-ball effect. Perhaps it's my fault for not just dictating stuff, but personally, while it may be a little time consuming, it's nice to see community effort and consensus.
posted by snsranch at 3:51 PM on November 12, 2010


snsranch, I think you're right to rope it in at this point and keep it to the original plan - just collaborate without other restraints.

It would be fun to do another album project sometime, though.

Ah, Karlos!

And thanks, TWF!

Here's what we're gonna do.

1. We stick to the original plan for January. Drawing collaborative partners and submitting music of your choice.

2. February...?

3. For March, we have another collaborative effort focusing on a specific album, band or artist.

Please forgive me for waffling about like a bad politician, but here's my take on this: We're all musicians here, artists and expressive people. Everyone's ideas and opinions are important and valid (to me).

This reminds me of when I used to actually play in bands. You can't make everyone happy all the time. But we CAN here. So that's what we're doing! Cheers!

posted by micayetoca at 5:38 AM on November 13, 2010


I have a possible idea for the February challenge. It's had a thumbs-up from unSane when hit upon in another thread. It's a collaboration of sorts where we each volunteer to produce/mix a track by someone else. So, for instance, Flapjax mixes a track by micayetoca, who mixes a track by unSane, who mixes a track by Flapjax - you get the idea. Could yield some interesting results. And kind of easy too because it could be an existing track. So there's no need to necessarily write and record something specifically for this challenge.
posted by MajorDundee at 11:05 AM on November 13, 2010


@Major I was thinking of taking 'producing' a bit further than that really -- suggestions for the arrangement etc etc -- much as a 'name' producer you paid good money for would do.
posted by unSane at 11:11 AM on November 13, 2010


Sure. Fine. I guess I was just thinking about something simple 'cause some of the other challenges around that time may be quite demanding logistically/organisationally, and people might think "great idea, but....fuck it, I'm beat".

I think we'd just say that if anyone wanted to add or subtract stuff to or from a multitrack, rearrange or whatever - go for it. Do as little or as much as you think it needs to produce something you like. Speed it up, slow it down, add a wobble-board and a brass band, whatever. Basically the artist hands over a multitrack and reinquishes control at that point.

Might be an added twist to upload the artist's original mix (assuming there is one and it's not already on the web somewhere) after the remix, so people can hear how things have changed. To make it even more of a challenge, the producer maybe doesn't get to hear a demo or anything before getting the multitrack - heh heh. I likee.

posted by flapjax at midnite at 10:41 PM on November 28, 2010


There was a minor contretemps in another thread (start here) but it was teacup stuff. The Major had a minor flameout and his comment was deleted and the next thing we knew he had disabled his account. It really wasn't serious -- I misread it all as elbow-in-the-ribs joshing -- but it turns out the Major didn't take it that way, at the time anway.

Zenabi and I have been in touch with him and we're all cool but he says the Major Dundee persona is no more. I think that little exchange was just the proximate cause... the disabling itself was a culmination of a simmering dissatisfaction with both music.mefi and his own musical direction, plus some other external stuff... all the stuff he'd been expressing in recent posts and tunes, in fact.

I sincerely hope the man behind the Major (Dundee was very much a construct) pops up here again; I'll definitely stay in touch with him and if anyone wishes me to forward a message I'm very happy to.
posted by unSane at 4:55 AM on November 29, 2010


Aw hell yeah, Major, I've got a message coming at you, via unSane, for sure. But let me just say to you here that, in my experience, misunderstanding people's intent on a text-based internet forum like this can certainly (does certainly) happen, and I hope that, considering this point, you'll rejoin us here soon, and resume sharing your music with us, as well as your enormously entertaining sense of humor, and spirit. We'll definitely miss you round here if you stay gone.
posted by flapjax at midnite at 5:21 AM on November 29, 2010


I'll join flapjax in that. If the Major reads this, or if anyone is in touch with him and can tell him, I'd like him to know that he is appreciated here, that in a short time he became a very cool part of the exchange here and his contributions - in every sense, not just musically- were very appreciated. For a while it even seemed like he was pushing the site against its own dwindling and inspired a few of us to come back to a more active participation. I hope you can come back, Major.

Whoa, I didn't know flameouts happened in this neck of the woods! Well, I hope everyone's cool.

Also, I'm in for any of the ideas I think were floated above: random pairing, covering a song from an album, or mixing someone else's tracks.

I can offer: guitar (heavy, lead, or acoustic), vocals (melodic - but not with great intonation, or death metal style), and - like everyone else - fake drums and synths.

Hi everyone, I'd like to start getting involved in mefi music.

I play bass and I've been working on my vocals for a few months. I've mostly been writing short little songs to practice mixing and arranging.
I have some simple rock type covers uploaded to youtube from when I was looking for a new gigging band to step into.

Anyway, please add me into the mix if anyone would like to collaborate with me.

I'm hoping we can add Major Dundee back into the mix now.

Umm... if it's not too late... I am interested in this.

I can contribute saxophone (tenor or alto), piano, guitar, and glockenspiel. And I sing.
