Right on the heels of Open Battle #02…
Time and time again, the amount of talent on this forum has blown me away. However, sometimes 1 + 1 can equal 3…
If there’s one thing I’d love to see more on this forum it’s collaborations between forum members. The purpose of Open Battle #03 is to encourage us Elektronauts to do just that:
CREATE A TRACK WITH ANOTHER FORUM MEMBER.
How to initiate a collaboration?
Either contact another Elektronaut directly through a private message or leave a comment in this thread if you’re looking for a collaborator.
Once you have someone to work with, please let us know you’re taking part! As to the track itself, the world is your oyster - the style, instrumentation (hardware/software both cool) etc. is totally up to you. To keep it interesting, each collaborator’s contribution should be significant (from about 20% to 80%).
When your track is ready, please share it through your chosen medium: Bandcamp/Soundcloud/Youtube etc. Your track may also include a video if you so choose.
You can be involved in up to two entries, as long as they’re with a different person.
Nobody wants to let others down but sometimes life happens and you end up not having the time to follow through with your collab commitment. If that’s the case, please be honest and transparent with your collab partner.
With that being said, I really hope you people will find this challenge interesting and will find time to participate!
Deadline for submissions Sunday August 8th 2021
We then vote for one submission, the composer of which gets to establish the brief for next battle
Recording can be done in a DAW, a 4-track cassette recorder, a sampler, or any other recording support.
Technical achievement is not the point: the aim of open battles is to explore your instruments further, open your eyes to the infinite possibilities of collaboration, discover new sound design techniques, get a track done, and most of all have fun!
