A shout out for MIDI files and samples

I'm starting a project which, as I've already mentioned elsewhere, is based solely on working with files supplied by others. These files need to be "clean", meaning you own the rights to them and allow me to use them for this project.

I'm basically going to produce an ambient album and submit it to the IDMf Netlable for consideration for release by the same. It's going to be a community-based project in so far as what I end up with will depend totally on what I get passed on to me by you guys on here. Obviously anyone who gives me material to work with on this will be credited as part of this project.

I'm looking for midi files in particular..of any genre..but remember, you must have the right to pass them on to me and for me to use them in this project. In other words..no files you paid for or files you got from some place else..just stuff you, yourself, have produced. They can be old tracks or part tracks that you don't mind sharing..quality isn't a issue, as long as they are in midi format.

If you are up for this and can offer me something to work with, then please reply here or PM, letting me know. I'll post here once I have enough..so for everyone reading this, keep those midi files coming..and don't worry if you think they're total crap..they'll be good enough for what I want to do.

Thanks

Re: A shout out for MIDI files and samples

Thanks, A..nice one.

Yeah..I let it up for nearly two weeks and even though there had been a few views, it got no replies..so I thought it best to close it and try over here in this section, which is the relevant section for what I'll be doing anyway.

The whole thing about this..and what made me want to do it is the thought of what kind of album I'd end up with, if all the tracks were determined by the material donated by other people, instead of my having the total creative freedom to do everything. This way I have to confine myself to what will be passed on to and work with those files instead, which should pose a few challenges..but I'm really stoked to see what I end up with in the end once I throw everything into the pot and mix em up a bit.

Re: A shout out for MIDI files and samples

Its a great idea really. Especially because I imagine a lot of people will bounce you things from abandoned projects and such. So the pieces parts will have had a context and now are getting re purposed. The academic in me, though buried deep below a thick layer of seething dislike, is keen on the idea!

Exactly! It's the whole thing of getting totally unrelated material to work together..transforming things until you end up with something completely different from the original things you started out with in the first place; that's what appealed to me about this.

One thing is for sure..it's going to be fun.

I have some midis here although they aren't very ambient. I'll have to get you some chord progressions from songs I never finished later.

Re: A shout out for MIDI files and samples

My thanks again to everyone whose donated their stuff for this already..and a reminder to anyone reading this who hasn't..I'm still looking for material for this project, so it would be great if you could send me on a few midi files of any old thing you have sitting on your drive..doesn't matter what genre or style..all are very much appreciated.

I make no promises on the quality of the end result..this is purely EXPERIMENTAL.

Mind you, if I end up with some really nice tracks then that would be a plus..but I'm more interested in seeing how working on a project like this is going to differ in reality..compared to producing what I want myself.

Granted..I'm still going be mixing all of this together..but I'm limited in what I can produce to a certain extent by the material I have to start with. Still, it's going to be interesting to see how far I can take this and what I end up with in the end.

I'm all about being experimental!

Some of my best work has come from restrictions I've placed on the music making process. It usually forces you to solve problems in ways that you wouldn't think of if you had complete freedom.

Yeah..or so I've read on here from other guys. I guess I just want to push myself a little out of what I'm used to, in order to see where it takes me and what I can learn from it along the way.

Time will tell, as they say.
