i have no idea. i haven't heard from the person with the original idea. there's no telling. i don't want to start doing anything until they chime in or someone with a great presence on here.

Hey, it's been a while since I've been active doing anything Newgrounds related and this sounds like it could be a lot of fun.

I helped organize the Epic Battle of Guitar a while back, which failed miserably. But it did get me in contact with a good number of different rock and metal musicians, many of which I'm sure would very much enjoy doing something along these lines if we could get some variety of "standard" going. (Like a set of guidelines, some goals etc.)

OH! And I guess I should say I'm in for whatever it is comes from this :D

i haven't heard anything from the person that originally thought of this idea. this might not happen if someone doesn't step up and take lead or whatever.

A good way to bring attention to the Audio Portal would be to have an album full of collaborations by a multitude of artists; someone could organize a playlist of it on here and we could convince Tom to put a link or an advertisement of it on the frontpage.

Truth be told, I'm just curious to hear what a collab between:
@DanJohansen
@Metallica1136
@LichLordMusic
@Elitistinen

would sound like. Just imagine all the different combinations of genres possible.

It will be a miracle if this work! :D Let's see, Dan is classical, Metallica is metal, LichLord is aggrotech and I'm the mix bag.

Same here! That sounds like an awesome new genre. Question though..who's gonna start the collab?

He does a lot of metal, too; and he also does vocal work on some of his songs. If he's up for it, maybe he and Lich could alternate doing vocals, like one section Dan does, then Lich does another section, etc.

I may have found a somewhat decent way to record it. I just need a good time when I can play (I play rather loud, so trying to record during quiet hours isn't exactly a good idea). I might need to do some extra audio editing afterwards, but I'm sure I can work it out.

That's a toughie. Maybe Elitistinen could start off with something cyberpunk styled, then you start doing some riffs, and then build from there.

Cradle of Filth has done a couple songs that kind of fit this,

I'm kind of disappointed they haven't done much other stuff like this

http://youtu.be/NzyyN1QleLc
http://youtu.be/W1GYxRfJsiU

but I'm sure it would sound even more interesting with your guys' styles.

Also, @Metallica1136 I've been playing around on guitar a bit, and I've learned some of the limitations and such of the instrument, and I've also learned how to read tabs, so I can write some tabs if I come up with anything interesting.

I've had most of Cradle's albums for years since I was young (Cruelty And The Beast is my personal favorite album of theirs followed by probably Dusk & Her Embrace) and I never remember listening to those particular tracks although I remember their titles. May have to add those tracks to my Playlist next time I am out & about!

Haha, I did have a thought how ithe whole thing could lean towards. I'm thinking something along the lines of the Heavier Orchestral/Symphonic Elements of Sinphonicon mixed with the Aggro/Post-Industrial Metal-esq style of Psyclon Nine. Oh my lawd that would sound like such an Evil but badass combination!

With so many different possible combinations, I'm starting to think that if this actually becomes a collab, there could be multiple different songs, each with one style that is more prevalent.

If we had more major group collaborations like these, I'm pretty sure we could bring some attention to the Audio Portal. Any more pairing ideas anyone?

"Flyboy"

Out of all the people in this thread your style is the most similar to mine. I've been looking for a decent collab to help draw attention to the audio portal for many months. However, most people just do not follow through with the task.

Not sure where I would fit in, in all of this. I know I could provide an extensive library of various sounds and FX for a collaboration, I don't even care if the final product is not dnb. Convincing Tom to put this collab on the front page will require someone who has a relationship with the staff, or just a really high speech-craft skill :-p

Overall, I'm excited about this extensive collaboration idea. It can show people that newgrounds isn't just a bunch of heads scratching for recognition and glory, but a team of dedicated musicians who can work together to create something extraordinary.

I have joined the audio community on Facebook recently, I can broadcast the idea to them and see if they like the sound of it. Although, I'm not going to move forward on this if it is not organized and controlled in some form or another.

i'm in the same boat as you. my style is fairly different than a lot of stuff i've heard on ng. but there are still styles worth mixing. i wouldn't mind working with someone with great skill in dnb or even dubstep. with that being said, i have a thing against dubstep, musically that is, i appreciate the culture and the people who make it, i just don't like it personally.

and what about prices and judges? more like a contest where u need to work in the assigned groups? u can mix those groups idd with like 3 guys, doing different genre's or even doing the same genre cause everybody has some how there own style. u could idd create some master pieces then.

also before u starts this don't rush it and know that if u are the leader of the whole project that it takes a lot of your time. a skype group might idd be a good solution to think things threw.

I have issues finding people to collab with, because people who make music the way I do prefer to work alone (generally). I did collab on the Experimental collab back when we did that, but that was more of a community track building deal. I collaborated with sorohanro and satanicpotatoe to do a tribute to CAKE and I did vocals on some tracks TPMC asked people to do, but these were more about contributing separate parts. The closest thing to actually collaborating with people on NG was when I played bass for LaForge.

It'd be a cool experience for users to collaborate on some tracks.

I'd be totally down for something like this.

How about a short concept album, with several groups small groups (2-3 people) making a song around a specific theme, genre, musical key or what have you?

Just a suggestion, I'd love to collaborate.

Would be cool, I don`t do only classical though, I mostly do metal actually. I`ve just recently done mostly classical due to the album I was making.

OMG how come no one mentioned CTSG? CTSG was an auido forum collab a number of years ago that let people in the audio portal combine clips as a sort of exquisite corpse exposé. Audio:

http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/859161

Read the tread for details. They also formed a second which if I recal turned out great results as well.
