DUE DATE: Due date is December 26th, but if we need to adjust it, we will. Planned release date is January 5th.
MONEY: It will be free, but donations will be accepted.
GENRES: As long as it isn't ear-splitting or inappropriate, anything!
EFFECT: Help out The Point Foundation!
Right to The Point will be a charity album to benefit The Point Foundation, a charity all about helping out LGBTQ students and making sure that, even in the face of hatred, they can get a good education and not fail.
I came up with this idea after coming back from Bronycon, wondering how I could help, seeing as how Circuitfry and Aussie did a wonderful thing by sending wonderful musicians that couldn't otherwise go over to Bronycon. I don't recall having seen someone do an album to help out LGBTQ people, so I figured I'd start something for that, and after asking around and getting positive feedback, I decided to go ahead!
FAQ wrote:How do I get in?: Just reply to this thread saying you'd like to do a song! We'll keep track of who's submitting so we can make sure that the level of artists isn't over-bearing.
What kind of music can I make for this? What is the theme?: As long as it's not noise, drone, or ear-splitting (anything along those lines, ambient works fine though), it can be accepted! Make it positive, feel good vibes! Make it happy! However, we do have exceptions...
Like what?: If you're going to have lyrics, we'd like to ask that swearing or any kind of graphic content be kept to a minimum. If your song is poorly mixed, we'll ask if you can make it better (there is leeway between due date and planned release album date). If not, it won't be accepted. If you're remixing someone else's song, please ask them if they're fine with having it on the album. We are doing some kind of quality control here! And if it's noise, or drone, or ear-splitting, we're not allowing that. (Yes, there can be happy (relatively happy) metal.)
Do you have a Facebook page set up for it?: Why, yes we do. It can be found by clicking here.
How many songs can I submit?: Only one please! You can make two for this project if you want, but you should decide on one (collabs don't count; if you make one, and collab on a song with someone, that's totally fine! Just don't overdo it.)
So if you guys wanna participate, let's get started! I know it's kind of barebones now, but I'm trying to build on it and help expand it.
And the Rainfall (maybe)
