Dyne

An OverClocked Christmas v10 - Recruiting NOW!

Recommended Posts

Well, we're a bit over a month away from the due date of Dec. 11. Thus far, I've gotten one song, so we're off to a bit of a slow start.

This evening I'll be sending PMs to those who expressed interest in doing something for the album to see if they're still up for it. So for those who've posted in here, keep an eye on your inbox. And no, that's not a euphemism.

We are now just 12 days away from the due date of Dec. 11.

Let that soak in folks. Less than two weeks to go before the project wraps up. Having just finished my remix's final touches, there are now three completed tracks for the album, with a good half dozen (roughly) being actively worked on by other people. As Dyne has said, for the people who REALLY want to get a song on the album but need a few extra days, the absolute cut off date is December 14 at 11:59 P.M. EST. But ideally, all songs should be done and submitted to both Dyne and myself by December 11 at 11:59 P.M. EST, that way we have enough time to put everything together without having to rush.

So for those who have gotten back to me and let me know what's going on with your remixes, thanks for the updates and keep up the good work thus far. And to the few who have stayed silent, I'm getting drones ready to play a constant, blaring loop of "Friday" outside your homes as I type.

Here's my email for those with finished tracks...

Just got reminded at discord, so I need to throw in. I failed last year and don't want it to happen again. I want to get this great concept I have out of the way for the holiday. Time is already short, so not cool, but please bug me all you want about this. I'm serious: I'm always swamped with stuff, but very little of it is immediately consequential. I'm following discord reasonably well, so hit me up whenever.

If you're really interested, feel free to work on something. As I said in my previous post, if you absolutely need the time, you can submit it by 11:59 P.M. EST on December 14. It may only be three additional days, but a lot can be accomplished in three days :)

Messages sent to everyone who hasn't had to back out, or vanished from sight. Also, I got this message from the OverClocked Podcast crew a few days ago. I thought I would put it here in case someone wanted to act on it...

Hey there! If the Christmas album is up and running in time, would you or anyone else involved in the project be interested in joining us for an interview on the OverClocked PodCast? :) We're planning our Christmas Special (which will go up on December 24th) so just let me know, and thanks!

I'm still alive, don't worry. I'll be working on the website tonight and have been seeing some emails from musicians in my Gmail, so I will be going through everything. I've been incredibly busy with work and just don't have the time during the week. So I will do my best to get the majority of the work done that I can do tonight and tomorrow.

I would also be incredibly happy to hear our musicians involved in this year's as well as the last nine years of AOCC interviewed if at all possible. I would do the interview, but I don't have much interesting stuff to say.

Alright, PMs sent to everyone who, as far as I know, is still working on a remix. If you haven't done so by the time you read this, please check your inbox and get back to me. For those who need it, here's my e-mail...

Well, the main deadline's gone by, and here's where we are...

Of the six people who were still left working, we had one hand in a song, one drop out, three ask to use the extension, and one not respond. And so we wait to see what happens by the end of December 14.

I know I sent my entry and it's more varied this time. Is it good enough for the album?

It's fine. It would have been nice if you'd done an ending that didn't cut off so abruptly, but it's fine.

And that wraps up the Christmas album for 2016. We ended up with 8 tracks and I'll be sending the package to Dyne shortly with the final art and all the MP3s tagged.

Gotta give props to everyone who finished and tried to finish their tracks this year. Thanks for taking part :-D
