Re: The Five Dollar/Five Album challenge

This is a cool idea..but does it have to be vinyl..or can we used secondhand CDs or cassettes also?

Re: The Five Dollar/Five Album challenge

IMO any analog medium should be "allowed"... So no CDs, unless its super fucking rare and not available online. Idk does that sound good?

Spent some time recording some very old Lou Reed bootlegs I found on vinyl today...

Yeah..it's fair alright..you have to have some sort of rules or it would end up a fecking free for all. Only problem is I don't have a turntable..nor does anyone I know. Everyone seems to have moved on with the times in that area.

I'm not into the clubbing scene, so I don't know any DJs in my area.

Duck it..I have to see what I can do about it (Duck being a typo and not intentional..but struck me as musical in nature, so it stays like that. ).

Like I just said elsewhere, I think it's time for me to call it a day and hit the sack. Been online all fecking night and the sun is coming up here now. When you start misreading shit and not thinking straight I think your brain is telling you something.

Almost picked up a bunch of cassettes today for $.30 apiece. Decided 'fuck no' at the last minute, because I have too much junk as it is.

Re: The Five Dollar/Five Album challenge

I'd say do what you can to stay within the spirit of the project/challenge.

So for the $5 thing, just use the equivalent in your country's currency.

As far as vinyl goes, I'm going to stick with it, but I don't see why cassettes wouldn't work, and if CDs are your only option, go for it. Just try to choose sources that work within the spirit of the project. In other words, don't buy some modern mix CD and just loop some EDM beats.

Also, I'm hoping this becomes something on going, so if you can't participate now, you can in the future. I'd like to try to make a track like this once a month, just to help me break out of a rut and discover some new sounds.

Re: The Five Dollar/Five Album challenge

Great idea.
Can I ask that people provide pics of their purchases to go with their release please?
And if you're super creative maybe you could shop the 5 LP covers into something new for your new track?

Re: The Five Dollar/Five Album challenge

this has so far been a really fun process. i only got one vinyl for now (for $1!) but so far i'm happy with just the overall joy of making music out of found sound. might even end up using this for something.

I'm not convinced I can get 5 records for 3.88. I'm pretty sure I can get five records for 5 though...gonna go check my Oxfam music store later on. They've got some jems. I bet the whole thing will be scratchy as fuck but I'd like to give this a go!

Re: The Five Dollar/Five Album challenge

If enough people get on board with this idea it could even be the concept for an IDMf compilation? Really excited to give this a go! Probably won't get time to go record shopping for another couple of weeks though...

I think we're going to have a bit of a problem licensing all this material for a compilation tbh.
