Oh mannn...

THIS IS SUCH A GREAT IDEA!!!

We're having practice tonight and I'm bringing over a piece Poliip just uploaded less than a week ago. (still have to ask her permission, but I'm sure she'd be down, a few months ago she let use an older piece of art for our EP cover). This will be a a funny way to pay her back and I'm sure if we offered to split whatever prize we win, she'd agree to it. Probably going to be a upbeat/funny song about putting off work. Just you know, This piece of art is now taken!

Shoot I have a question regarding the contest....I just read the rules and it says no collaboration. I play in a three piece band and that's how we write and record songs. We use one user-account...can we still do this? I mean we're really "One Music Artist" because we're a band. No one would consider Daft Punk two Music Artists because their the same group and submit and publish music as such, right?

If not, I'll just write the song myself and record all the instruments but it's gonna be a lot more fun and better to do it as a band. Please let me know asap!

Hold on a minute, this is going to be hilarious. So many people are going to use a piece of artwork for this other contest as their inspiration because it'll just fit. :3
Exactly why NO ONE should miss out on this contest. It's too easy to fib a submission. Just fucking do it and make sure to say a few things about how much you love the "source material." Even if the artist is chosen as an after thought it's still incredibly respectful to look into the work of artists other than yourself.

This is a fail proof contest.

Yeah if you choose an art piece dont half ass it, put your heart into it, let it be something that truly inspires you and really show the artist how much you love the art piece by saying so :) it'll make their day!

Well the songs have to be mainly inspired by the art piece. Gah i know i didnt put no covers or remixes, but it does say the inspiration mainly comes from the art piece, so that says enough I'd think lol. Hopefully Rucklo will be somewhere in sight of this contest if he chooses to join though :)

Hey there, When I upload my 3 songs, do i still retain the copyright license? Cause I know for some music contests, once you upload the music, it is no longer yours. So when I enter, I am still the owner of the songs, right?

Pulsonik

Did you read the newgrounds creative commons license? Yes you own the rights, thats what protects you on newgrounds :) it's good, people can ONLY use the song with permission by asking. Trust me, even after the songs get on the album they're still yours as credit is given. No worries! :)

I don't think it matters, although I'll let the Fulp and RealFaction have the final call on it.

As long as you're playing the instruments then that is ok, but they can't be playing it.

Yes, a band counts as one artist, collabs count as two seperate artists working together, so you can do it :). I guess I should've made that clear lol but yes your band can play, thats not a collab :)

But I said you can use them if you play or manipulate them. Sorry for the confusion, thats digital stuff though, you can use vsts and stuff, i just said even. I'm talking as long as you manipulate those instruments, you can use stuff as long as they arent copyrighted. For example, VSTS ARE ok. It may confuse some people but FL studio vsts and stuff are allowed to be used.

I thought you meant real instruments like you can't have a friend collab with you, but if you sample vsts from a program thats fine.

Oh sorry, that was a joke. "camoshark vst" just refers to camoshark since I practically use him and his buddies as an automatic-brass-solo VST. lol.

I'll use all my own instruments, don't worry.

That's actually a good point. Is it to the artist discretion whether he or she allows the possibility of multiple songs to a single art piece? If this gets as big as I think it should be, we could see duplicates of art choices.

Well originally i should have put that as a rule...but i forgot to. I really thought things over thoroughly but I guess i forgot about that, not sure if it can be helped now but I guess it's up to the artist now, I'm hoping the artists only allow one song lol. It would definately help the chances if it isn't the same art piece, now im beating myself up for forgetting to put that there xD

Out of curiosity: Can we make it a charity thing? Like, we can ask the people to name their price (and they can download it for $0.00), but whatever proceeds we get from this thing, could this be given to a charity?

Because the last charity project that I know we were involved in, the NG CD Project 2012.... well, I haven't heard much news about it for a long time, and I don't know if the album's going up at all.

Well i don't know a charity to give it to that would relate to this, i figured if it would be for that it's best to plan ahead. I'm planning a few months or so from now to do another version of this contest for a "volume 2" album, it'll be the same competition kind of only with a twist, but that's down the road. I could try for charity then in that competition, guess i didn't think of it this time around, it's a good idea though definately :).

The last time we had a choice between Oxfam, Save the Children and a few others, but there was also Music for Therapy (which wound up being the charity of choice for the NG CD Project 2012).

That actually sounds like it's up my alley for a competition like this, next time around we totally should do that. I wonder why theres been no news on the 2012 cd :/ thats kinda fishy. Well whether it was sincere or not, I'm honest, so if I'm going to do something, I will if I know I can handle it.

Yes, a band counts as one artist, collabs count as two seperate artists working together, so you can do it :). I guess I should've made that clear lol but yes your band can play, thats not a collab :)

Excellent, we started writing something and should hit the studio with it in a couple weeks. We are gonna hit this full force and come up with something really catchy.
