    I mean it. While ambient music and other genres can easily be a one-man operation, metal is more like musicians in the (virtual) room. Let's form ensembles and collaborate.

    Ok guys, I just woke up and I think we already have a good core of people here.

    To make things easier, I'll use the first post to update our plans. As a basis I'll write my scratch plan and we'll go from there. Feel free to comment and share your ideas.

    If we split into ensembles, each (ensemble) will decide what they want to do. Ultimately, the project manager of each ensemble is the musical director so when in doubt, he should have the last word.

    The idea behind having a project manager (or composer/"guy who assembles all parts in his DAW") is that he will act as a center point to where everyone else in the ensemble will report to. It's not about having an ego-driven lunatic telling people what to do, it's about having someone that will make decisions when needed and be responsible for delivering the goods in time.

    edit: Let's say that we end up with four ensembles. Instead of having 20 people asking for this and that, only 4 guys (project managers) would be doing that as they represent their team (ensemble).

    Let's share some collab workflow ideas for the initial phase (throwing ideas back and forth, sketching, etc).


    Don't know if this still works well but it used too when I used it some years ago. Now it has some limitations but might still be an option for jamming out some riffs "togheter":

    Don't worry. You want to participate and you play guitar. That's more than enough.

    I was just going to put up a poll about this.

    Regarding the instrument for the "roles", pick only one for now.

    "I want to do my own track AND a collab with everyone"

    Looks like the original idea is gathering some consensus. :yes:


    If it wins the poll, I'll be the one managing the collab track (by default) but I still need your input. In my mind it should be a big prog-like track with multiple solo spots, different moods, various lyricists, etc. Everyone needs to contribute something to this track.

    "I want to play a role within an ensemble (collab)"


    To everyone choosing this option... You won't be left out if the "track + collab" option wins. It just means that there will be only one collab track for eveybody instead of having one song per ensemble.
