UKFF Music Project

Recommended Posts

A couple of years ago I tried to set up, for lack of a better term, a musicians collective. The idea was to assemble a group in which musicians and aspiring musicians from all different backgrounds and skill levels could work together to create something good. I'd hoped that after the primary project was completed that smaller splinter groups would form and go on to create works of their own and so on and so on, obviously I never achieved that goal but the concept has remained on my mind ever since.

 

Now I know that there are a few musicians (aspiring and otherwise) on the UKFF, some people aspire to make music but lack the technical knowhow, the confidence or the inspiration to do it by themselves, that's why I'm proposing a UKFF Musicians Collective in which we all make music together, either individually, in pairs or in groups. We can exchange ideas and expertise and inspire each other to persevere and actually do something instead of wishing we were doing something.

 

So what I suggest, and this is just a suggestion, is that we begin with a concept, for the sake of argument let's say that it's the infamous

quote. Those who want to take part go away with the intention of making a track which will feature the aforementioned sample somewhere in it. You can do anything you want, any type of music, as short or as long a track as you want, the only rule is that you must use the chosen sample.

 

That's the idea I've got and at the moment it's nothing more than an idea. If you want to have a go or pitch some ideas you may do so now!

Yeah, I reckon I'd be down for this. Time permitting for me also, but to be a bit more helpful, basically I'm free from after May 17. I like to make a bit of music as a hobby, so it's always fun to have little projects like this or remix contests and such to focus on..

Anybody had any thoughts regarding our unifying concept? Is "it's still real" acceptable or is it a bit too wrestling-y?

I'm up for it, but don't expect a masterpeice. Also, I don't mind the clip but any chance you could have an mp3 version of it to use? I've no idea how to.

I'd like to have a go at this but haven't got any recording facilities at home at the moment. The next time I'm anywhere near a studio is to do some stuff with my band, and I doubt I'd get time to do anything then either. But I'll enjoy keeping an eye on this topic to see what comes out of it!

Would like to take part, but have no technical knowhow whatsoever. I only sing, don't play any instruments to any adequate degree, and don't have any particularly great recording facilities.

I just recorded this directly from the YouTube video using a (free) program called Audacity, Audacity is primarily a tool for editing audio files although I have heard of bands using it to arrange entire tracks. It has a lot of interesting functions to distort and generally make your samples sound really strange.

Cheers Vito. I think a music editing software and some sample loops are the best I can do for this. I have no actual musical experience or equipment.

I've just got myself a little program or two to mess about on so will look into doing something and if anyone wants a fair few gigs of samples then just say.

I don't think anyone's expecting to create a masterpiece but what I hope is that someone manages to make something interesting then shares their techniques with others so that they can be inspired to make something themselves. Basically what I hope is that a tech/moral support network will gradually form.

Expensive equipment isn't necessary. What's important is making something that you like out of whatever you can use.
