Long-form Ambient Compilation


#42

I’d also be interested in participating, if my 2 years old and one month old kids leave me some actual music time in the near future :slight_smile:


#43

I was going to post that, but you beat me to it. They’ve got a great thing going on there.

34 Expressions of interest!

I’ve been meaning to get down and see The Clock at the Tate Modern: https://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-modern/exhibition/christian-marclay-clock - it’s a 24hr film that is designed to be run on a 24hr cycle. If we ended up with 24 hrs we could organise it in a similar way? Then stream it?


#45

I like the idea of field recording too. Could form the glue between tracks in a mix approach?


#46

I’m up for this in twenty characters.


#47

Should the compilation have a topic like “Music for Babies – finally done right” or will it be free-form?


#48

Just realised that any stream would have to favour a time zone.

Still like the 24hr concept though…


#49

Well, a minidisc encoded in LP4 plays for like 5 and a half hours. that’d be 11 half-hour tracks. :stuck_out_tongue:

In other news, I improvise an hour of ambient once every couple of months for a lunchtime meditation session at the university where I work. There’s one coming up if anyone fancies a trip to Swansea - I’ve also considered streaming it in the past, but I’ll record whatever I come up with.


#50

Count Huron in for this one. I’ve been exploring longer drone/ambient works lately.


#51

Sounds fun so I definitely would like to give it a try. It would be a nice incentive to finally do some web based ambient generator :smiley:


#52

A year or so back I mentioned this semi-generative radio station a friend had built off a Rasperry Pi. He’s ditched the stream, but if people are serious about making some kind of online mix version of whatever you all come up with, maybe have a look at the code?


#53

I’m in!

#54

I’m in the process of a 3 volume long-form ambient drone release, though it might keep you awake as it gets a bit intense in places :wink:

I would be definitely be interested.


#55

20 characters of yes


#56

Hello. Yes, I’m interested!


#57

so interested! no babies for me yet, but i was just talking about this with my fiance last week.


#58

It would be cool to allow tracks that were longer than the max that bandcamp allows… unless I’d be the only one submitting a 10 hour long track :-p

On a related note, here’s last year’s ‘medium’, an annual 24 hour drone performance: https://www.mixcloud.com/radiodotcomputer/playlists/medium/ We had to break it up into chunks to upload it to mixcloud.


#59

oh wow, there are multiple 24-hour drone events in the world! that’s awesome


#60

would you mind sharing the other(s)? seems like an appropriate place!

here’s another one in minnesota: https://drone-not-drones.bandcamp.com/

and one in hudson NY: http://basilicahudson.org/24-hour-drone/about/

(er, well I don’t mean to hijack the thread, maybe this should be its own thread…)


#61

The one in Hudson is the only one I’ve been to and was aware of before!
