Bronyquest Fundraiser: BALLOON PARTY

LET'S DO THIS SIGN ME UP

WHAT IT IS: Hardcore compilation donation album.
DUE DATE: June 1st 2012
MONEY: Free, accepts donations.
INCENTIVE: Show how you go all out, get attention.
GENRES: Death electro/complextro, dubstep, death metal, gabber, heavy house, hardcore orchestra, and any combinations you can make of music of this sort.
EFFECT: Helps for the Bronyquest movement to get musicians to Bronycon!



Aussie and I have started a project that will be giving you a chance to break your restraints. Don't worry about how pony your song is (although being clever is encouraged), don't worry about whether your song is complex or simple. Don't worry about what people will think of your track, because these questions don't matter when your song is as intense and hardcore and awesome quality as you can possibly muster. We're here to bring the blood and mud to the speakers. From death electro to heavy metal, these tracks will go as hard as an unstoppable force on an immovable object. The drops will be intense. The licks will be supreme. The riffs will pound sensationally. You get a bunch of masters of music on stage and you have to stick out. It's time to throw the Balloon Party.

Guidelines:
1. Cussing/sexy stuff won't make your track hardcore, so don't disqualify your track from possibly playing at Bronycon.
2. Some of us may want to do gorey sounds and such to make their songs seem cooler. I guess you can, but it's cheesy if done wrong. Don't overdo it, it shouldn't be what makes your song so balls to the wall, and, again, it may disqualify the song.

Collaborations are encouraged.

FAQ:
Q: Anything I shouldn't do?
A: Don't use the Modern Talking waveform, don't make a lazy song.

Q: HOW HARD DUZ IT HAV 2 BE???
A: HARD. IT HAS TO BE HARD.

Q: I want in!
A: GET IN.

Q: I'm kinda new. Is that okay?
A: Yeah! Ask around a lot, there's a lot of time to make a super good track!

Q: How much critique should I expect?
A: Depends on who you ask, but Aussie and I are happy to give A LOT.

Q: Do I have to emulate Knife Party?
A: Not to exact perfection, but you should go for it!

Q: HOW HARD DUZ IT HAV 2 BE???
A: REALLY. REALLY. HARD.

Q: How many tracks can I make?
A: Don't make a million. Nobody on Balloon Party will make a million tracks because a million sucky songs makes the whole album look like it sucks! You have to make a *GOOD* track. Making a good hardcore track is tough, so just take on what you can handle. There are plenty of artists, just make maybe 1 or 2 or maybe 3, but don't stretch yourself! Songs shouldn't clip (much) and should have reasonably good instrumentation. Mixdowns should be sensible. Mastering should be done with good advice on your mind. Take your darn time!

Q: CAN I WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO START ON MY TRACK?
A: DON'T DO THAT.

Q: HOW HARD DUZ IT HAV 2 BE???
A: FOR CELESTIA'S SAKE I SAID IT HAS TO BE HARD. AS HARD AS POSSIBLE.


CURRENT LIST OF MUSICIANS/LYRICISTS WHO ARE IN:
I will be maintaining the list on the Facebook page here:
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Balloon- ... ef=tn_tnmn



Possible responses to this topic that I am expecting:

1. This will be fun I want to join woohoo let's make brony music!
POST AWAY, GOOD SIR.

2. You guys have fun I'm just a sad orchestra composer that doesn't make techno--
SHUT IT. We need orchestra composers too for awesome hardcore orchestra hits or even full compositions! You have to know how to make your instruments rock the crowd like us. This is a challenge to manipulate your composing style to work like and with the electronic music. Classical instruments can be just as effective as a bass cannon. I think our classical musicians have proven that and can do it again.

Alright let's make some hot tracks!

I'M GONNA TAKE THIS FLUTE AND MAKE IT SO HARDCORE!

This means I'll see if I can do something for it...

To expand this point, take Nero as an example. That man fuses sick orchestral components into hard hitting electric music. If you're really unsure, consider collabing with a musician who you know is a hardcore, badass, "ripped-like-all-the-people-in-The-Expendables" composition machine, and make sweet sweet music together



Circuit: can we move the due date a month earlier, so that people have time to organize tickets/travel and such earlier?

FUCK YEAHHHAHAHAHAHAHA

Oh, yeah, question (I don't know like anything ogod). Are remixes allowed, or is it strictly original material? Like, if I wanted to do a death metal speedcore orchestral remix of Summer, would it be okay? OH, and how about remixing the songs made by other people for this album? Is that cool? And do I even have to worry about this, since I could just make up a rule right now saying that remixes are fine, given that I'm the cofounder? :D

So this is what that is. Put me on the participating list, I guess, but only time will tell whether or not I'll be able to go "hard" enough.
