Kaiju Exquisite Corpse

[avatar]

I've been taking a break from the land of corpses over the last few challenges. Good to see some ideas and memes carrying forward without me, but i haven't seen this one and feel it needs resurrection.

The kaiju exquisite corpse is open to all who wish to participate, as long as they can do so in a timely manner. It starts now and runs until the end of 50/90, which means it will be unleashed upon the world on or around October 1st. It will be as long as we can get it, with as many participants as possible adding pieces over the course of the challenge. Depending on interest, you may be able to rejoin the queue after some number of participants have had a turn (tbd).

Typical corpse kind of rules:
1. write and record 1-2 minutes of music based upon the snippet you received
2. send to the next person in the queue: a 10-20 second snippet from the end of your piece
3. send to me: the full audio file, the snippet file, and any lyrics, notes or alignment samples. contact me: plaintoast (at) gmail (dot) com

when it is your turn, please don't dawdle; 1-3 days is the desired turn-around time for your piece
after 4 days with no communication, we will skip you and move on to the next person in the queue. communicate early and we can move you later in the queue as needs be.

@nateger Thank you - Got it!

[avatar]

@plainwhitetoast I sent you an e-mail with recording link. I am struggling with the ten-second edit to send on to the next....

[avatar]

@sammiall - i haven't gotten to my email yet, but thanks.

EDIT: I just read your email and will reply there.

[avatar]

@cblack Just sent you the link for my excerpt. (With many thanks to @plainwhitetoast for the help with this!!) Please let me know if it doesn't work!

[avatar]
@cblack

@sammiall Received and it works! I'll have to get stuck into mine soon.

[avatar]
@cblack

Paging @wolfkier . You're up! Snippet on your soundboard thing.

And @plainwhitetoast , I've emailed you the snippet, the full demo, and the lyrics. ๐Ÿ˜€

[avatar]

@cblack got it, thanks! @downburst expect something from me within next 36 hours.

[avatar]

@plainwhitetoast Okay, I may as well join in!

[avatar]

@sbs2018 - i added you to the queue.

[avatar]

@plainwhitetoast I've sent my 10second tail to @downburst ~

[avatar]

Hey guys, I totally forgot about this! Wolf sent me his piece days ago and I completely spaced. I'm so sorry. I will get on it.

[avatar]

@downburst How's it coming, Rod?

[avatar]

@downburst, Last call, or we're moving on.

[avatar]

Alright, well, moving on then, in lieu of a response from @downburst.

@wolfkier - please send your snippet to @jamkar

[avatar]

@plainwhitetoast done!
@jamkar sent my bit to you at jameskarns@y.... email. Let me know if that's still the best email for you.

[avatar]

@plainwhitetoast Yeah, I'm just not getting any traction on this at all, sorry.

[avatar]
@jamkar

10 sec. sent to @nancycunning

[avatar]

@plainwhitetoast Iโ€™m going to have to bow out of this oneโ€ฆ

[avatar]

Iโ€™ve got @jamkarโ€™s snippet. Iโ€™ll have something by Sunday to send to @esc4p3

[avatar]

I sent my recording to @plainwhitetoast.
@esc4p3 - if you'll give me your email or send me a note at nancycunningham1451@gmail.com I'll send my snippet to you.

[avatar]
@esc4p3

I've made contact just now โ˜บ๏ธ

[avatar]

@plainwhitetoast - I'm happy to jump back in at 16 and follow @esc4p3 if you want to keep this rolling. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

[avatar]
@esc4p3

Hi @plainwhitetoast I've just emailed you the track and the snippet. Is @dragondreams on for number 16, in which case I'll email him the snippet?

[avatar]

Hi All. I've been tied up with other things, sorry for not sounding in sooner.

@downburst - i understand. no worries added

@esc4p3 - send me your snippet too. I think I'll jump back in myself as i have a band session tomorrow

@dragondreams - i'll add you after me?

Thank you again to everyone else for participating.

Does anyone else want to join or jump back in the queue?

[avatar]

@plainwhitetoast - all good with me. Looking forward to hearing what you cook up for me. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž

[avatar]

I finally sent my snippet to @dragondreams
it was taking so long, I almost had to kick myself out of the queue. apologies.

[avatar]

@plainwhitetoast Hey I'll join in if you want to keep this going.

[avatar]
@wolfkier

@plainwhitetoast I'll happily do another bit too if there's room....

[avatar]

@plainwhitetoast - I'm in please... will be available at the weekend to record as necessary....if there are still slots. Thank you.

[avatar]

My second offering done and full piece sent to @plainwhitetoast.
@gardeningangel1, you should have an email with my last ten seconds for you to get busy with. ๐Ÿ˜„

[avatar]

I could add another section if people want more but totally up to the stitcher!

[avatar]

Got it @dragondreams ! I'll have my part done in a day or two. Who should I pass my snippet on to when I'm done? I see @wolfkier and @kahlo2013 have both volunteered to do another round.

[avatar]

@gardeningangel1, I'd guess @wolfkier next, then @dreamscuba, then @kahlo2013 given the order they've shouted in the thread. But @plainwhitetoast is in charge of admin on this one. ๐Ÿ˜‰

[avatar]

@gardeningangel1 - what @dragondreams said is pretty much how i'm rolling on with things; first shout, first out. i will try to accommodate special time constraints, as long as it doesn't get to much to handle.

with that said, @wolfkier is next after the current bit completes.
then it depends on where we are in the week. if we are at the weekend, it will go to @dreamscuba, and then to @kahlo2013. if we are a day or more out from the weekend, those two will be reversed.

i'll keep an eye on things to make sure it all works out
