So me and Frostbyte have been talking a bit lately and we got onto the topic of doing LSDJ tracks with more than 2 gameboys. And then we came up with this. The basic idea is as follows:

Every person involved writes on one copy of LSDJ. These will all become part of the same song, meaning if we have 5 people involved we’ll have a 5xLSDJ song. If 8 people get involved we’ll have an 8xLSDJ song.

How we’ve decided to organize this is that to keep everything structured and unified, Frostbyte’s gonna write a basic song structure around an idea that we all agree with. We then divvy up the elements/sections in a way so we’re firing on all cylinders and doing the stuff we do best.

Every so often, we’ll all come together, possibly on a VoIP client like Skype, share what we’ve done so far, and give critiques on our different parts.

Rinse and repeat the above until we have a finished track. Someone who’s good with post-production will put everything together, we’ll decide who gets to upload the track to 8bc, upload it, and reap chip fame (hopefully).

If this works out, we’ll be the first all-Gameboy chip band. How cool is that?

Unfortunately, we can’t just let everybody in on this. We wanna make sure that the people who are in this are totally committed, and that they have considerable experience or are just a total whiz with LSDJ.

If you are interested in participating, email me or Frostbyte at vincentchang9999@gmail.com or frostbyte.8bit@gmail.com with links to a couple of your songs that showcase your strengths in LSDJ. YOU MUST EMAIL ME OR FROSTBYTE TO VERIFY THAT YOU ARE TOTALLY COMMITTED TO THIS PROJECT. We don’t want flakes.

aiming for at least 3 other people to participate, but probably no more than 5. After a certain point it just gets kinda chaotic.

List of people that are interested (*=totally committed):
VCMG*
Frostbyte*
Freque
Roboctopus
dylanbrochill*
spry
aegissystems
Zef?

Forgive me if I missed anyone.

Sounds interesting. I would try, but i like to keep my anonymity on the internet. So skype is out of the question.

aegissystems: it might actually be easier to do this over gtalk because we can use the voice feature and instead of using cameras and mics, you can just line in your gameboy and chat with text :)

Cool idea, but unfortunately I just can’t conceive that anything more than 2 LSDJ’s could be anything near coherent, it gets to just be a lot of notes and noise past that.

little-scale and Dot.AY used 8 Genesises (Geneses?) for Loom. It was pretty good. Why not something like that with gameboys?

Zef: I’m writing it out in a way that it avoids all that :) I’ve got one spot left, and I’d love to give it to you! Would you mind taking a look at the papers when it’s done to see if you’d be cool with it?

I guess I’ll give it a try. If you’ll let me. Might be a good way to learn.

@Zef
It would only end up a mess if we let it. Have some people do chords, others leads and drums and if would sound fantastic.

@aegissystems
Yeah I think it would work like that, but if you do that it’s more like #of LSDJ channels rather than #xLSDJ , not that it wouldn’t work. And sure, you can send it my way once you’ve got something going; I’ll check it out, but I’m also busy with another big project right now :D

im down, you guys know im good with LSDJ :P so if someone writes the entire song, then i take a part and put in a bunch of empty phrases/chains up to and after the part im supposed to write for?

It’s more like where we’re in a band and each person is responsible for a certain part, like one guy might be mostly basslines, another focuses on the drums, 2 or 3 people work together on the leads, that sorta thing.

So more like a gameboy orchestra than a collaboration, if that makes any sense.

I need to update the first post with a list of people interested.

yeah i dont see how it could get chaotic. a person writing a lead could make a really cool detuned PU lead, or someone could combine a snare sample with a noise snare to get a really resonant sound. this could totally work

I might stop accepting participants soon, though, because 8 people is already more than enough.

Also, EVERYONE WHO IS TOTALLY IN NEEDS TO EMAIL ME OR FROSTBYTE so we a way to keep in contact with you. We don’t want to be waiting too long for someone to send their part after everyone else has finished.

comedian!

and wholly jesus 8 people no freaking way haha, this is gonna make it more of a challenge. It’s all good though, i’ve got many ways to figure this out ;)

I’ll hopefully be able to have the song written by the end of this coming week. Probably around next wednesday.

I’ll be writing 8 parts, and Zef, i’ll be counting you in :)
