This is a Lines community compilation based around the idea of creating a long-form ambient compilation. Anyone is free to participate. There are no strict instructions in terms of theme or style, just your interpretation of the title of this thread. A guideline length for each track is 30-90 minutes, but this is just a guideline. Put in what you feel is necessary. I’m in equal parts amazed, slightly terrified and hugely excited by the response to this. Some 80 interested members so far. It’s going to be epic!
No idea currently how this will be released (will try Bandcamp initially, but other ideas welcome), but it will be released.
The deadline for contributions is: 18th January
I’m keeping a list of everyone who has expressed interest here:
I’ll check names off as tracks come in (officially open from now) so we can see the development of the compilation. I’m also thinking to check around the deadline with anyone who has expressed interest but has not contributed, via DM. Feel free to add or remove your name, don’t worry about the numbering!
This thread is also a place to discuss your ideas or process - as documentation or inspiration for others.
Here’s the original post:
The recent thread Music & Family reminded me that when my eldest (now 3.1/2) was a baby, I tested out a range of ambient tracks to try and get him to sleep. Can’t really remember the results (or anything else from that period!), but it did pique my interest in the idea of creating long-form ambient works, like 30min+
Is anyone into this? Would anyone be interested in contributing to a Lines long-form compilation?
