Interesting choice....Adventuring is one of those speak-singing songs. Shouldn't be too hard to pull off.

And while I think this is a fun thing, I'm not interesting in rebooting my untrained voice. dino_tongue.gif
I had everyone vote on the songs so it's not really my choice :p Shouldn't be too hard to do indeed.

Don't worry, it's fine :) There are already more people participating than I expected! :yes

What's the problem with It Takes All Sorts? dino_tongue.gif
Well, the song itself is just lovely (in fact, it was my first vote! Voted right after I sent those PMs to everyone and only later realised how tricky it is...).
The problem with this song is the music writing. Following the orchestral background music would be a pain in the ass! I'd have to be creative as I can't always follow the background music like I can in "Adventuring" for example. This is a first for me, I've had some fun with MIDI files but never really put one together before so I'm quite relieved it's not an insanely hard song to start and learn with. :yes

I don't know how to read music, and singing isn't my best trait, so coun't me out. It would be fun to do something along the lines of those Christmas carols, where you get everybody in a studio to record it, too bad our community is too spread for such a thing.
Oh don't worry, like I replied to Petrie, there are already lots of people participating so it's not too bad not to have you in a song :) I would absolutely love to do what you suggest but I'm afraid 90% of us don't have the means to meet up somewhere to do this :p For me, the borders of my own country would be the limit...

Yeah that basically sums it up nicely.  :lol  :lol

Good luck with Adventuring! Let me know if you'd like a copy of my Noteworthy Composer file that I wrote up for that song. :) If you'd rather just do your own thing with it, I totally get it!

I think I even have that file somewhere... Malte sent me a lot of MIDI files back when he gave me the program, I think there's an "Adventuring" one among them...

Excellent! Adventuring was a first choice for me, I'm excited that it was chosen :smile

Nice! Adventuring's pretty cool, not my choice, but let's do it.

I wouldn't mind giving it a shot. Though I'll probably wait it out until you guys get to doing songs that I am a bit more familiar with, such as Always There, It Takes All Sorts and No One Has To Be Alone.
"As long as humans continue to be the ruthless destroyer of other living beings, we will never know health or peace. For as long as people massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, those who sow the seed of murder and pain will never reap joy or love." - Pythagoras of Samos

"Gaia, the beautiful, rose up, broad blossomed, she that is the steadfast base of all things. And fair Gaia first bore the starry cosmos, equal to herself, to cover her on all sides and to be a home forever for the blessed Gods." - Hesiod

Sure, It Takes All Sorts will be the second song we sing so you could just skip Adventuring and join It Takes All Sorts once we're singing that one.

Just a reminder: This project is not dead, its just about to really get started :yes I'll start working on the music soon. In the meantime, we could already plan some things, like
  • how many voices we need (knowing that could also help me when I write the music)
  • some recordings for testing so I have a rough idea what you can sing and what you can't (or if I have to go for a different key to make the song easier to sing for some of us)
  • suggestions how to split up the song between all the singers
  • other things I forgot to mention... :p

Hey everyone,

just to let you know... this project is not dead. I really underestimated the amount of time it takes to write the music (and the power of procrastination   :bang )

Good luck Ducky123!  :D Now there are two people here who know how insane you go from listening to the same few seconds of the same LBT song that many times in a row. :lol

Ducky123, I'm still happy to act as consultant for any technical stuff that comes up if you have any questions. I don't really have time to help with making the music or mixing but I'm more than willing to offer any advice I can.

I know, Tim :) Luckily, I didn't encounter any bigger issues I couldn't figure out by myself yet. My biggest concern was how to change the instruments but I figured that out  :lol

I'm not too late, am I? Ah well, here's hoping this singing project gets off the ground.

I do wonder who's still willing to get it rolling? I'm sure I can finally force myself to finish the song if I know people are still interested :yes

I can certainly sing and have been interested in participating in this since 2013, I believe.

A little tougher than it looks, isn't it?  :p   ;)

Haha seriously though, good luck! I'd love to see you finish it!
