sorry in advance if this is long-winded. i came up with an idea over the weekend and i’m curious to see if there’s any interest from anyone else.
i’m thinking of a really small scale chamber of commerce set up for music and art. the rough idea being get a small group of maybe 5 or 6 people together. a couple of producers with similar musical tastes, an engineer (position probably filled already, but there’s always room to be flexible), an artist or two for album art/cover work/videos/etc., perhaps someone looking to work on web or social media presence, and probably a few other things i haven’t thought of.
the group could help each other with feedback and bouncing ideas around, providing skill sets that other members don’t have, and helping to cross promote and reach audiences we wouldn’t without each other. for example, if i write a track and need artwork, someone more skilled than me can create it and we cross promote it; or, someone makes a video and needs a soundtrack. no obligation for anyone to do anything, but the opportunity is there if the interest and motivation are too.
this started with @sl1200mk2 on this board (it’s a bit one way at the moment as he masters my tracks and i mostly just pepper him with questions lol), but we’ve developed a really good working relationship and i’m thinking that expanding on that might be helpful.
the priority is in helping each other out when possible, supporting creativity, and develop good working relationships, with fame and fortune being an afterthought. there always seem to be posts here and on reddit for artists looking to collaborate with other artists, so maybe this could be a way of bringing a few of us together.
any thoughts? anyone tried something similar before and have suggestions?
