The long-awaited answers to the who-did-what on this most excellent collab are in the comments. I'm not privy to the secret suggestions given each participant, but if those who either gave or received those suggestions would like to share them, they may be in the comments as well.

I was given the honor of creating the intro piece. I did not receive a suggestion, but was concerned about holding things up. I told Red to give me 4 hours and if he hadn't heard from me, to give the honor to someone else. Things started clicking and I got in touch with Red to let him know that I would indeed do the intro. I told him I just wanted to "stop the timer because things are going well." And that, apparently, was the suggestion given to the next artist.

Thanks JJ. The advice I received was 'more electricity' and the message I passed on was 'Ichabod Crane rides again'

Wire-and-Wood   commented 1mo+12dy ago


I received that message "Ichabod Crane rides again".... and now I know, from you!! My message to next was to use some type of horse sound, whether implied or real, clicking of hooves, etc. I think Midipunk embraced that full-on! Of course, Red tailored the vid to fit so well.

I heard the one bar he sent and said that's Wire and Wood. I listen to a lot of stuff and hope UNMISTAKABLE comes across as the intended compliment.

Wire-and-Wood   commented 1mo+12dy ago


Right back at you! Your part is one of my fav's. It's crazy because this piece has some serious moments and it has comedy, mellow flute jazz, etc. That is the best part. I love it and we should do these every now and then for sure

WOW this is soooo interesting... yea MIDI 1000% took your word prompt and destroyed it!! Its so horsey!! one of my favs w the vid...as red rolled out the horse footage.. lololol

I'm not familiar with Inchabod Crane, do the lyrics hint at the story? Lyrically it's feckin amazing btw. "A slice of the pie I may never make up again" is golden.

Crazy when you think about it, to have this many participants, and there is not one section that doesn't fit. I have some favorites, but every part is awesome. I love the dynamic changes. I think this whole concept is brilliant and the results confirm it

Thanks man , i was super amazed by the few bars i got , it has this british sound and knew it was epic but since the last sound was a dog barking , i decided to built my piece around my cat meowing i wished i had more time to add some stuffs but i thought that the less i played the harder i would be found epic fail

Ah ha! The reveal. This is marvellous. Great to read people's prompts and direction. I was given "The end is nigh(t)" and was told that I'd be playing the last section. (No pressure). But part of me didn't believe it, as I figured Red may try throw me off. So there ya have it. I ripped off Dirty Harry and got a little bit silly.

Well, aren?t you lucky?. Punk Such a badass ending honestly, threw me off guard. Really capped off the whole project in an epically awesome way. I was blown away several times listening

Doomism   commented 1mo+11dy ago


Thanks! It's a wild ride of a listen. So many highlights and some sort of psychic connection between you and Willa. That was seamless,

"The end is nigh(t)" boy if thats not the cryptic cake taker!! lol you crushed that ending.. its excellent~~

Thanks! Loving the mood of your piece too. It's really catchy and have found myself humming the vocal melody a few times lately.

Ok, those time stamps are handy, because I was hearing Willaway/MusicalHermit as one contribution. There is some magic glue happening right there! Also, Mikibella and Redfish, jeeeez, yabba dabba glue. Damn.

MusicalHermit   commented 1mo+11dy ago


I thought it was pretty wild and cool the first few of us went for a variation of the clock clacking rhythm, very cool coincidence. Everyone got together so seamlessly, it really is an enjoyable listen from beginning to end. Really really tight synergy between everyone.

comment.user.userName PLUS

Doomism   commented 1mo+11dy ago


Yeah, I noticed the ongoing time theme. Add the clock visuals and you have something incredibly cohesive. I need to take another listen and register the tempo changes. The track before mine was 60bpm, so followed with freetime and a 200bpm(ish) finale.

comment.user.userName PLUS

minime   commented 1mo+10dy ago


Your part was a moment where I have see something that was not there ! Will never forget ! I had the list with all people involved open as tab and had look again and again by guessing and then my guess was " Thomas " ! Grrrkkkkkrrrrrr :-))) Thomas was not on that list :-) I listen now all some days your Song " My Name Is " :-))))

comment.user.userName PLUS

Doomism   commented 1mo+10dy ago


I did see your mistake. Hahaha. And anyway, it's not exactly my normal voice, purposefully so, because I didn't want to give myself away that easy and it worked. :)

Willa man your guitar thing is so fking raw i luv it.. And the vid where Doc's part comes in with the zombie appearance is priceless!! OH only vid suggestion at the very end we needed that the skelazoid man to explode!!! lololl

MusicalHermit   commented 1mo+11dy ago


Haha yes! I also endorse this ending

liljoe6string   commented 1mo+11dy ago


The tension is calling for the next big thing,, what better than an explosion!!??

Doomism   commented 1mo+11dy ago


You have my endorsement too! Hahaha

comment.user.userName PLUS

Doomism   commented 1mo+10dy ago


Listening again, I remember that one of my very first ideas, knowing it was 60bpm, was to do something with a clock ticking and someone frantically trying to defuse a bomb, with some musical additions of sorts... That could have been so perfect and would have taken the corpse full circle. An explosion at the end would have sealed the deal. Kinda spooky. Or maybe it's just that when someone says 60bpm, we think of seconds in a minute.

jjt   commented 1mo+9dy ago


I'm not sure what Red told the next person about the tempo of mine (the intro). It sounds kind of free-form but does conform to an 80bpm tempo (in Gm). Interesting that it was 60 by the end.

Sorry I'm late... my wildcard instruction was "electric parrot"... I like to think my bit captures the inner essence of parrot in the phrasing, just imagine the lines "Who's a pretty boy then?" being repeated and you get the drift. Or maybe not. Maybe I was paraphrasing.

Love that bass part especially in yours, the melding into joes part is an especially cool section. Has an ethereal quality, then boom comes back to earth. Perfect pairing
