Kaiju Exquisite Corpse

=========================

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.

Who is in?

@esc4p3

This will be my first corpse, so yes please, I'll give it a go. Instructions seem clear, but if I get stuck I'll give you a shout :-)

[avatar]

Hey @w1n, how's it coming with your piece?

[avatar]
@w1n

@plainwhitetoast sent you my part now, and my last 10 sec's to @headfirstonly

[avatar]

Thanks @w1n!
And thank you to everyone else who has gone so far! This is moving along nicely.

@sammiall

@nateger Thank you - Got it!

[avatar]
@sammiall

@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.
what is the nature of your struggle? perhaps i can assist.
EDIT: I just read your email and will reply there.

[avatar]
@sammiall

@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. πŸ˜€

[avatar]
@wolfkier

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

[avatar]
@sbs2018

@plainwhitetoast Okay, I may as well join in!

[avatar]

@sbs2018 - i added you to the queue.

[avatar]
@wolfkier

@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]
@wolfkier

@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]
@sbs2018

@plainwhitetoast I’m going to have to bow out of this one…

[avatar]

I’ve got @jamkar’s snippet. I’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 ☺️

[avatar]

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

[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. πŸ‘πŸ˜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. πŸ˜„

[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. πŸ˜‰

[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 too 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

[avatar]

I love it when a plan comes together...

[avatar]

After some technical difficulties, my part is done and sent to @plainwhitetoast and :15 snippet sent to @wolfkier

[avatar]
@wolfkier


@plainwhitetoast ok, I'm done. I'm about to press send on my email to you @plainwhitetoast . Let me know who to send the 10seconds to. I'm not sure how "close" to the weekend we are.
re @dreamscuba or @kahlo2013.

[avatar]

@wolfkier - i think we are probably close enough to the weekend for you to pass it on to @dreamscuba, then that bit gets passed to @kahlo2013 by Sunday night or so. Hopefully that works.

[avatar]
@wolfkier

@plainwhitetoast ok. My 10 seconds just sent to @dreamscuba
Home stretch!

[avatar]

@wolfkier - received... I will turn it around tomorrow (Saturday).... thanks

[avatar]

@plainwhitetoast - I have sent you my section. @kahlo2013 - ready to send the 10 seconds to you - please let me know your email address. Thanks

[avatar]

@plainwhitetoast - I recorded my piece about 2 weeks ago and passed on the 10s and the section for stitching... this should all be with @kahlo2013 for the last piece... do let me know if you did not receive my section. Thanks.

[avatar]

Thanks all - sorry I forgot about this! I sent my segment on to you @plainwhitetoast and since I was the last one on the list I made it an ending and did not sent to anyone else. If you want to end it, please feel to chop mine up anywhere and add your own ending! Thanks for stitching!

[avatar]

(bump)

How are we doing on this, folks?

[avatar]
@cblack

Any progress? Who are we up to?

[avatar]

@plainwhitetoast - do you have all the body parts from the team for stitching?
Thanks

[avatar]

Back after a long hiatus (writing all the time...got away from posting after a couple of zongs), checking on this with interest...

[avatar]

Hi All. I've been disconnected the past few weeks. I'm trying to wrap this up today. I believe I have all of the parts. I set a placeholder song for it, in case i don't get it done today. I believe i can add everyone as a collaborator, but you may want to set a placeholder for yourself, just in case. Thanks.
@ballyhoot, @dzdandcunfsd, @lowhum, @kahlo2013, @dragondreams, @w1n, @headfirstonly, @nateger, @sammiall, @cblack, @wolfkier, @jamkar, @nancycunning, @esc4p3, @gardeningangel1, @dreamscuba,

[avatar]

@plainwhitetoast
Thanks for the update. Hope all is well with you.

[avatar]
@esc4p3

Thanks @plainwhitetoast , have set a placeholder just in case.

[avatar]

How do you set a placeholder, please?

[avatar]

@sammiall Hi, create a new song, but set it to private and leave everything but the title blank. if it is created, it can later be edited with links, etc. and set to public, even after the challenge ends.

i think i can add everyone as a collaborator on mine, so it may not be an issue. still, better safe than the alternative.

[avatar]

it lives...
https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/11291

all of my online storage options for mp3 files of this size are maxed or otherwise constrained, so i made a simple video. if that's a problem, let me know and i'll see what i can do to make an mp3 available. for now, other priorities supersede.

i also haven't had a chance to add lyrics to the song page.

Thank you to everyone who participated.

[avatar]

Yay!!! Thanks for putting this together, @plainwhitetoast !
The parts all flow together really nicely. While I would like to have an mp3 (this would be great walking music) the video is really nice to see who's part is playing. Awesome stuff, everyone... I am yet again thrilled and a little awed to be part of such an amazing group πŸ˜€

[avatar]
@jamkar

Another exquisitely great corpse! Thanks @plainwhitetoast !

[avatar]

Got it! Thanks again, @plainwhitetoast πŸ˜€

[avatar]

Many thanks, @plainwhitetoast!
Snagged the MP3. πŸ˜„

I can offer permanent hosting of the file on my server if that helps?

[avatar]

@dragondreams - yes, that is appreciated, if you are willing to do so. Thanks.
