I'm in. But some questions: does it need to be new? As in, composed specifically for this album? I've got a few jazz fusion tracks to choose from that I could submit.

I just remodelled my bedroom studio so if there’s still room count me in!

That sounds interesting!

I'm actually thinking there's no reason to start a new thread. This one should do fine. idk

If you want to submit a piece of music, send me a full res file via something like WeTransfer to dbryce@musicplayernetwork.com.

Please feel free to talk about your submission in the thread. Share whatever you want - talk about why the piece exists, what tools you used to make it, etc.

That totally works. I'm gonna use one that I did for another project as well.

Great idea, brother Scott! I don't see any reason why a track for this project couldn't be created this way.

Thanks so much to everyone for all the enthusiastic responses! This should be a lot of fun...

Also, we'll need cover art for the project. If we have anyone here who does that sort of thing, please chime in.

Ideally, we'd get a couple submissions and the group would get to pick one.

Just a thought Dave, why not create a new thread and make it a sticky (short-term)? Might make it easier for users to interact with and you to have it set as submissions only...no chat


The trouble with doing the job correctly first time, is no-one will ever know just how difficult it was.

If we had no other stickies, I'd be more inclined to agree...but we have too many as it is in the main forum. The problem is that having a bunch of stickies (combined with the two sub-forums) drives an undesirable amount of the content "below the fold".

If we were to go that route, it might make more sense to put the sticky in the Shameless Plug sub-forum... idk

I'd be willing to make a not overly accurate non-cover song contribution for the coolness of being on a joint CD! Some mastering job thingies I could contribute, I don't think I should do any cover art ideas.

How about a separate one like Dr Mikes? Although I guess that amounts to pretty much the same thing??

But from what you say, yeah it might just get a bit convoluted....I imagine it'll be a pretty active thread anyway so it should always stay near the top - for those who don't subscribe to the thread. (idk, can we still subscribe to a thread? I haven't tried of late)

I'm in. I will send an edit of one of the tracks on my last CD; they're all epic-length, but someone challenged me to do a meaningful radio edit of the fave track from the album, and it came out not too sucky.

I am well aware of the fact that a lot of folks on this compilation will be better players than me, and some will be better composers, but I am not letting that stop me. And it shouldn't stop anyone else, especially folks who have never done anything like this before. There will always be people out there better and worse than you, and if you don't take that first step, you'll never take any of the ones that come after it. Courage!

A previous (non-KC) collaboration was housed on the Collaboration sub-forum wink

I would be happy to put in a submission for the cover art assuming it doesn't need to match previous volumes thu

Go for it! And, no, it does not have to match the previous art Janet did for us.

how "straight" does the art need to be?

Details for the front cover art?

Artist:
Keyboard Corner

Title:
Compilations 2020, Volume 1

If it had to have an actual name, I’d probably suggest something like:
We’re back!

MPN logo somewhere might be nice. idk

Will that work?

I’d go with this for a guideline: this is a publicly displayed forum, and the cover needs to not make anybody who submitted music feel badly that their work is on it.

Nothing stopping you from making multiple submissions, though. If we don’t dig something, we’ll vote that bad boy off the island. grin

haha, I meant could it be a bit surrealistic, or stylistic rather than pure art smile

Yeah I imagine mine would get booted, but it's something fun to mess with while stuck in the "cabin" wink

I don't know if I'll be able to record a new tune for this comp - I would like to, but believe it or not, I'm busy as hell. But I should have something in the dark vaults that I could submit.
When's the deadline?

I'm ready to submit, but need to do the rough mix work (this won't be the version that goes on my album as a result, but it's close). I'm pretty confident now of which song from my upcoming jazz album is the one that is most appropriate to be included on the KC compilation, but I'm still a tiny bit torn as another one of the songs has the best piano solo of any of them. :-)

Not an easy choice, but now it's settled. I was going to use the one with stride rhythm and the call/response flute/trumpet lead, as the piano is more prominent and it's higher energy, but ultimately decided that the new age fusion piece with free-form/free-time soloing in the middle, has the prettier primary melody and the more interesting keyboard work (and solo). The Rhodes and Fazioli take turns throughout.

I guess it's best to go ahead and do a dirty mix to submit tomorrow morning. Alto Sax is still MIDI (as is Flute; though it's less noticeable there), but it's SWAM-based so is listenable and musical/expressive.

As an ode to Dave Brubeck's "Unsquare Dance", it is titled "Unsquare Time in Times Square". The almost-ran is called "Tobacco Road" due to the New Orleans Stride influence.

I'd love to be in it if I can do so in time. And is it too late to suggest the name "Quarantunes"?
