Continuing the discussion from Any interest in an LCRP in the new year?:
Alright, here we are for the first LCRP in 2017. Thanks to @steveoath for starting that discussion and yesterday’s reminder.
I very much like the suggestion to give this one the theme “New Noise.” Been listening to far too much Coil and Nurse With Wound recently to not want to try and nudge this LCRP into a slightly experimental and noisy direction. But I also don’t want to make this a hard and fast rule, so anything goes, really.
If you're taking part in this LCRP, please submit two samples, one being vaguely rhythmic/percussive and one vaguely melodic/tonal. Submit as either WAV or AIFF with a decent enough sample-/bit-rate. Ideally, upload to Dropbox, Wetransfer or similar and send the link to me at email@example.com
At the end of the sample submission deadline, I will provide all samples to the participants and you can then only use these samples to create your track. Cut, pitch and mangle samples as needed, but no other sound sources are allowed.
* January 31st for sample submission
* February 28 for the final tracks
I’m open for other opinions, however wouldn’t an LCRP be a good candidate for the envisioned net label (http://llllllll.co/t/l-llllllll-co-netlabel/5008)? But maybe it’d be better to have an individual artist go first for release number 1, basically setting the stage for what’s to follow. Paging @jasonw22 and everybody else for opinions.
For one of the earlier LCRPs we were trying a crowd-funded vinyl release via Qrates, which didn’t work out in the end. Nevertheless, I still like the idea of a physical release for LCRP and maybe also future net label releases. CD release via something like Kunaki (https://www.kunaki.com/) seems the easiest and most likely to be successful as even individual copies of CDs can be ordered. Again, open for other ideas and opinions.
That’s it for now. Hit me with questions or suggestions. Looking forward to hearing what everybody does!
