For the newbies who don't know, I held a contest pretty much. Promo your comic, get a free song if I like it that much. It started off as an EP project and it took around 2 months to put together what I made so far. Once I was nearing the end, I was feeling like.. hey, I'm having more fun with this than I thought I would've.. So, I opened it up again, and added more songs and announced a break saying I'd be back on a different post. So, here I am, back from said break! Back to making music.. starting tomorrow but yeah lol
Now, I had 6 out of roughly 12 songs done already, but I am planning on making changes to some of them. The two biggest changes being that one was a cover of a classical song, and I'm not sure where I stand legally with it.. so I'm gonna write another original piano tune instead. The other one being changed a bunch is gonna be made into a full song instead of being a minute and a half. Apart from that, 2 are getting new parts and mixed again, and the other two will be only be mixed again. Everything else should be totally new.
In previous threads on this project, I'd post WIPs of the music so that the respective creators would get a taste of their song, but this time? .. I wanna go for not doing that lol yeah, I kinda wanna just upload everything at once! It felt like I was forcing myself to put stuff out on a strict schedule before and like, that wasn't cool lol so like.. here's what'll be different about my sharing of these songs this time around.
This thread is gonna be alllll about updates! And I'll be making it as simple as commenting "Song 1 of 12 is finished!" and like.. that'll be it. It'd add to the suspense I think lol once enough of all the songs are done, I'll post an album preview track going through small bits of every song! After that, I'll just post the whole album on SoundCloud. On a more official Tapas Music Project account btw! ..There's nothing on there right now, but there will be in the future! If I had to guess as to when it'd all be done.. I'd say I'd finish it sometime in January or February?
Side notes about the art that'd be associated with this!
I still don't have anything yet for it lol but if anyone's willing to volunteer to have their art represent this, I have a concept idea! I think it's a little cheesy, but I have a reason for it! I need art for the cover (which could also be the profile pic of the account).
So, my idea is a record player on the floor with some vinyl records in their sleeves right next to it all spread out. There's music notes flowing and stuff flowing out from the player and that's it. All of it in the color scheme that Tapas uses..
It's super minimal, but I think it could encompass a lot of emotional ambiguity in even in its simplicity. I couldn't have it looking cute bc it'll look like it'll be a fun and happy listen. (I personally think my music leans towards being sad, even when I try to make it happy, so that'd definitely be a weird fit.) I can't have it be dramatic looking either, otherwise it'd look moody and depressing. (Which would be fitting since it's my music, but that's not what emotions come to mind when I think of Tapas as a whole.) My idea should lean either way hopefully? I can't help but think that people might associate different emotions with my music as well, so that's why I need it to be very neutral, you know?
But enough about the details! Again, if anybody wants to contribute by helping with art, I'd be super grateful! You'd be credited in the description and I'll add a link directly to your art/ comic, or just wherever you're most active!
So.. yeah, that's it, I guess! Thanks for everyone that's supported me and complimented my music so far!
