HOMMAGE: Blade Runner / Vangelis Tribute Album Project

What with all the talk bubbling around about a follow-up to the original Blade Runner movie in the works, I've been inspired to put together a tribute album to both the movie and [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
, the man who composed the original soundtrack for the same. It's something that's crossed my mind a few times in the past, but I feel the time is right for me to actually do this.

I just want to run the idea out to all of you and see if anyone would be interested in submitting a track of their own, written / composed / produced especially for this and making it a compilation release, rather than a solo release of my own?

If there's no takers, then I'll still go ahead with it myself and produce an album of my own work for later release.

If anyone feels they can commit to such a project and actually complete something for this, then please feel free to post here, so we can get an idea of just how many people would be interested.

NOTE: Nothing is set in stone yet, regarding dates and deadline..the only things that are unchangeable are these 3 points..


1)
As the title implies, this planned release will be a homage / hommage, so the ideal is all tracks should reflect either Vangelis' score, as well as capture and encapsulate some sense of the movie itself, without straying too far from both the original score and movie.

2) The use of audio lifted / taken / sampled from the Blade Runner movie or its score IS NOT allowed and tracks using any WILL NOT be accepted. The work you intend to submit needs to be your own work..we don't want any copyright issues..so, PLEASE, DON'T USE SAMPLES FROM THE MOVIE OR ITS SCORE!

3) Submission DOES NOT guarantee inclusion on the release.


[EDIT] Here's the lineup of artists taking part in this (List will be updated as and when new folks jump into this)..



CONFIRMED
Me (A.M / Ambient Mechanics)
Relic
Lebeux
Stercogburn
Kvlt O)))
Thom
dada_davros



YET TO BE CONFIRMED





I'm going to be setting up a private members group on here for this at some point over the next few days, where we can manage this out of the public eye. Anyone who joins the project will get an invite to join the group, so keep an eye on your PM inbox and make sure it's got enough space to receive incoming messages.



OK..that's it..post if you're interested..if you're not, well..move along..move along.

Fuck to the yes dude. I am so in. How do you feel about using samples from the movie? I am in either way. Stellar idea.

Great, dude..good to have you on board in this..nice one!

Regarding using samples..I've given a lot of thought to this in the past and looked into the possibility, but sad to say it's a no-go. They have the rights to everything..both audio and graphics/visuals..so locked up, it's unbelievable! It's even hard to get hold of the rights owners in the first place to get permission..besides, it would be nice for this release to stand on its own two legs, creatively speaking,..meaning it would be 100% our own work.

So, short answer..no samples from the movie or its score, in any form.

We've going to have the same issue when it comes to the artwork, but I have a few ideas and am working on those at the moment..more on that later.

[EDIT] I've edited the original list of points / rules to show no audio samples from the movie are allowed. Thanks for reminding me, A!

Nice one, Thom..it would be cool if you could commit to this for sure..as I'm really looking for solid commitments to the project. If the time frame is worrying you, then don't be too bothered, as this could take a while to complete, so give it some more thought and get back to me with a definite Yes or No. You can post here or PM me..either would be fine.

Sorry if this puts any sort of pressure on you, don't mean it to, but like I said, I really need only people who will be fully committed and know they will be submitting work to the project..otherwise those involved won't even know who is involved for sure..and that would only lead to not much getting done in the long run.

I figured as much regarding he samples. As for the artwork, I'm pretty sure it is legal for someone to draw characters from movies and use/sell it. I go to...arts and craft shows with a lot of fan art for sale.

Anyway...regarding the music...it is an homage to Blade Runner/Vangelis are you looking for something pretty specific there or is it kind of open for us to interpret? Like...I don't want to try and just remake what Vangelis did...so is keeping in step with the moods and themes of the music what you are looking for?

Yeah on the art thing..I was talking about using actual stills from the movie..that route is fecking costly to do it legally and it's just not worth the cost for a release like the one we're talking about here.

As for what exactly is expected / accepted sound-wise..basically a bit of both..something new and your own work, but something that wouldn't seem out of place on the original score. Remember, this is meant to be a tribute to both the movie and Vangelis' score as well.

Think of it like this..I'm not saying everyone's work needs to sound like Vangelis..but the nearer you can come to it, the better..as you said, keeping in step with the moods and themes of the music.

FFS, A..it's OUR thread..say whatever you feel like saying, man..seriously.

..and, yeah..the more tracks we get in, the more choice we have for the release. Depending on how many we get and the standard of the same, I'd like to try and at least give everyone a shot at a place on the release, but it will be seriously handy to have a few more to fall back on, in case we need them.

So, with that in mind..and I'm saying this to EVERYONE reading this..if you submit more than one track, MAKE SURE TO LET ME KNOW THE ORDER IN WHICH YOU'D LIKE THEM TO BE CONSIDERED.

OK..feel free to post any other questions and I'll certainly try to answer them for you.
