The compilation is now released and closed for entries:
Thanks to everyone for taking part.
Old text for posterity:
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!
When your track is ready please send me a message with a download link (Google Drive or Dropbox is fine, anything I can just click to download). I’ll reply once I’ve added it to the collection.
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?
