Hey, I guess Hal is accepting articles again. Good.
I was trying to think of what would make for one that is relevant here and thought maybe I could see if anybody wants to collaborate on something with me. It has been awhile.
The Island of Misfit Noise is a group that my girlfriend and I started in 1998, ending in 2013. Other musicians came and went over a period of 15 years. We never had a stable lineup lasting longer than a few months. I resurrected it in 2014 as a recording project, swapping sounds online with people all over the place until we had a couple of completed tracks for release.
Later, I wrote a rough draft for a no-budget movie of the same name. So, I combined both together into a multi-media project. The movie is still a work-in-progress. I'm just putting it together as I go along, with assistance from some filmmaker friends.
If anybody wants to be involved, I would be happy to share ideas with you and do this together. Let me know via email or snail mail.
You can edit my demo anyway you want, to get started, adding anything you like.
I might layer more onto it, remix it, mangle it. If you send me a recording I will do the same. We can go back-and-forth with it for awhile until it is completed. Any artwork or text contributed is appreciated as well.
Preferably, I would like to be done with this by the end of June. If there is enough time left, I may use some it in the movie, some music videos, or both. Depending on how far we make progress, I might release what we've got by this Fall (maybe sooner). I have been invited to submit something to a film festival in October, which takes place in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Detroit.
CDs, Cassettes, and DVDs are handmade by me.
The album is being made under a Creative Commons license.
I have zero budget for manufacturing or promotion.
If someone wants to distribute it, great!
I suck at that.
