I plan on creating a Death Grips meets Avicii project
Basically, it'll have the raw intensity of Death Grips, with danceable rythms - all with a live drummer.
I'll fund/produce it, my buddy who toured with Tech Nine will rap, I have a hired producer that toured with Frank Zappa, along with a local DJ/producer
We're all in the Portland area
Aggressive in that it'll feature hard hitting unrelenting drums, up-and-down surprise bass notes, and off-kilt background noises
However, it'll be written with melody, featuring warm EDM music, and live organic drumming
Yeah, but I'm taking that general sound and expanding on it, and fleshing it out on a full album...
So, here's the end goal for the project:
it'll have the raw intensity of Death Grips, but with mainstream & warm danceable rhythms and melody - all with a live drummer.
Aggressive in that it'll feature hard hitting unrelenting drums, up-and-down surprise bass notes, and off-kilt background noises
mainstream in that the lyrics will be catchy, it'll have have hooks, choruses, and memorable melodies.
I can't rap or play drums yo
It's what I'm envisioning, and I want it done in one way or the other.
It's happening, though.
I got the drummer, the producer, and the rapper to meet up wit me this Saturday to further discuss and brainstorm my project.
found this online lol
LOOKING FOR: rhythm guitarist/bassist/drummer/singer
I live in Portland Oregon.
I'm 22 years old, and I’ll be looking for musicians my age or younger. The reason for this, is that I'm planning to have this group run for 50 years or more, and I want the longevity to be secure.
You’ll need be as proficient with your instrument as Metallica were in the 80s. It won't be too demanding, but it’ll push you hard enough where you'll need to keep your chops up to consistently play it.
Also, this will be a heavy touring a band. You look at a band like Metallica, and they have done tours for nearly every year that they've been a band. It'll be worth it, as we'll come up with incredible, unorthodox tours and projects. We’ll try to keep everything as fresh as possible to have it remain fun.
We're aiming to be bands like Led Zeppelin. A band that was enormously commercially successful, but was also met with near-equal critical acclaim.
Similar to Radiohead, Beatles, Pink Floyd, Zeppelin, etc. we'll dabble in a variety of genres. When we delve into these genres, we'll create inspiring, top tier songs in those genres, as the mentioned bands have. We'll together study these genres to do so
Anyway, the band will be formed in two years (2014). From now until then, we'll practice and come up with music ideas. From 2014-2015, we will get signed, continue to write, and record our debut album, and have it released by 2015 at the LATEST. By the following year (2016) or the year after (2017), we will no doubt be amongst the biggest and most acclaimed bands on the planet. This will be the result of revolutionary marketing strategies I am thinking of (we will all pitch together ideas as well), among a variety of other methods.
(This post was last edited on July 5, 2012 at 5:14 AM ET.)
I'll be organizing the project, along with co-producing & songwriting.
I've been posting on /mu/ since 2009, know a lot about music - what makes a song good, what makes it innovative & fresh, etc.
So, to join the band, you'd need to meet all of the following requirements:
- proficient in a variety of genres in two years
- have a STRONG work ethic to meet the demands of touring and a variety of side projects we'll be doing
- be prepared to stay with the bend for at least 50+ years
- have the technical capabilities of Metallica at their peak
-have the talent to create a string of classic albums that incorporate a variety of genres.
Being competent in a variety of genres may seem daunting at first, but with practice we should all get to where you need to be. The constant tours and projects may seem daunting as well, but when you realize how it all works out, you’ll be pretty OK with it. In fact, a good chunk of that project time will be be fun projects that we'll all plan out. Too many times have we heard bands break up, come to near-break ups, or continue with strained relationships. I want to minimize that as much as possible, by creating big, fun group stuff that we'll think of. We’ll even work together on projects that’s related to your hobbies outside music.Coming up with anything and everything to keep us a tight unit for as long as possible is the key.
so what you just look for people to make music for you and hope you create a new sensation by copying others?
man that was 2 years ago, crazy.
yeah I wasn't properly ready then, but I'm going HAM with that shit when I turn 25.
I've gotten to the point where if I had the right crew, I could make the next OK Computer.
Arcade Fire's Suburbs failed on a variety of levels in trying to achieve that.
wow riley your shit is fucking hillarious you idiot
>mfw I'm 24 and live in Portland
>mfw I qualify for rileysticka's good time party band
shoot me an email brah
I'm actually going to start an internet-wide band try out for it, yeah.
I'm turning 25 next February.
I want to be still be 25 when the band takes off. Not too old.
By the time I hit 28 I expect to make at least three 9/10 albums with a variety of top 10 songs, and the consistently make nothing less than 8/10 albums throughout my 30s
I have a variety of other projects that I'll start too, once I get rich off my band idea:
holy fuck i'm dying
i can't fucking breathe jesus christ this shit
you should learn to play something, youd get alot farther than trying to get people together and hoping they are the next big thing. its not as easy as you think it is anon where you have this dream world where you have these people and everything falls in your lap
you dont have any composition or theory training either do you, are you just going to hum everything for everyone? lol
this is the funniest thread of the night
LOL dude your ideas are so fucking vague
A massive project that will create the largest festival in the world, which will be demonstrate
every example of every genre of music on the planet - utilized in large and small venues.
The festival will be broken into two categories - a high level festival branch where large acts
play, and a lower end festival branch, where non-mainstream acts play. The lower end festival
branch will be the most occurring festival, where the higher end branch will occur once every 4
months - 4 times a year (Rock, EDM, Country, Blues/folk/jazz
Every summer the festival will host its biggest event - a mixed genre music festival, which will
eventually have the highest attendance of any American festival in that year year.
● Per state, establish lower end branch festivals once a month, for every relevant genre of
music per month
● Create a system for the lower end branch festivals, where the lineup for each festival is
created by popularity of each act
● Create a promotion campaign, that will properly promote each music festival that month,
that will occur in the state
● Establish a system where fans and musicians alike can sell their music at each festival
hahahahah omg yes
did you read Beta Fixer?
>A service that’ll help shy people obtain the social skills they need to get a partner. It’ll be a suite of products, that’ll include a revolutionary app and website, real time help sessions over the internet, among others.
>It’ll be the absolute go-to service for anybody who feels they're too inadequate to get partner on their own. We'll gain that go-to reputation by creating innovative services which will give them the self esteem for getting a partner.
>are you just going to hum everything for everyone? lol
yeah it'll be a mix mash of that, along with my ideas that I'll outline in emails and what not, too. Then I'll guide them through my ideas
>An unprecedented project to get White Men and Hispanic Women to date/marry each other in a systematic way throughout America. This will be done so the Hispanic Wife/White Husband will be the most iconic biracial pairing in the public conscious.
>Convince white people that the children will come out white, if the children are from light skinned Hispanic women. Convince white people that only a small % of marriages are needed for this project to be successful, and that this won't disrupt white wife/white husband marriages at all.
>Deflect accusations of racism, by noting how there's no right or wrong way to race mix
>Promote various studies, such as Hispanic women having lower divorce rates, the popularity of white male/Hispanic woman marriages, the attraction towards each other, etc
>Promote how it's simply a way to hurry a phenomenon that is already occurring in America, to deflect any accusations of forced race mixing
yeah I still need to work on it, yeah.
I plan on basically creating a network that'll get all local bands in the state to play, and it'll be this annual festival - along with major acts as well, playing at a certain show in say California, or something.
That needs some work too, but it'll get there.
Until then I plan on marrying a Latina/Asian
White girls have basically betrayed white guys at this point, take a look around.
what will your emails say?
>play it like death grips plays it only make it sound like avcii
youl probably agree with this but still not realize that because you dont have a detailed plan you will not get anywhere
eh, nah. Some of the ideas are pretty legitimate
Checkout my hiking plan, for example. There's definitely some legitimate ideas where all I'd need is the capital to get it going
I have some great /mu/ related ideas, too.
If I had the capital, they'd be amongst the most popular sites for music - capital that I'll acquire through my band initially
>A campaign that'll get Americans to immediately address physical problems such as knee, neck, and back pains, etc
how will you get connected to the bigger bands, how will you organize the event and set up stages, how will you pay for this, how does this network work? smoke signals? do you have anything more than a general idea
>saying capital instead of money
>still wondering why he's poor
I'll give an outline - beginning to end - of how I'd want the song to play out like. I'd reference sounds from other songs, detail how a certain instrument should play their note at what part, etc.
>I've been posting on /mu/ since 2009, know a lot about music - what makes a song good, what makes it innovative & fresh, etc.
>I've been posting on /mu/ since 2009
>know a lot about music
jesus fuck nigga, you better be trollin'
maintenance. It's not a career job, just an in-between job for my actual career that I'm going to start soon.
was going to do that, but figured I'd slow down my long-term career goal, which is to become a go tier musician along with becoming a world-wide entrepreneur .
yo, shoot me an email at email@example.com
we could meetup with my guys this Saturday even, in SE Portland.
All of your retarded grandiose ideas are shitty brainstorms.
I'm not trying to shart on your dreams or anything, but literally everything you've ever conceived is grounded in baseless idealism. You're an "idea guy". Work on practical skills before trying to take on the world, and go one step at a time.
had a friend work on a "better drop box" turned out to be a private FTP server
Marketing & Promotions project
A marketing/promotions company that'll offer unprecedented marketing packages to an array of different industries and people, uniquely setting itself apart from our competition.
Each type type industry and business will be able to choose a unique multi level promotions package that'll suit their business - small, medium, and large. There'll be various forms of ways to buy them - single flat rate purchases, subscriptions etc.
The initial target audience will be small businesses, though eventually the company will venture into musicians, artists, various types of self employed people, etc.
Other Marketing & Promotions companies exist already, however not a single one covers as many types of businesses and people that this company will cover, nor do they offer as much content that we'll offer.
Allow users to easily check the the status & progress of their promotions package, via email alerts, text message alerts, app, website.
Create an a simple, easy to use & clean website and app for the company, both will be used to order promotional packages along with tracking packages in use by the company. They'll both display customer feedback, how many views/clicks a promotional video receives etc. a map displaying physical locations where promotions are taking place, amongst other features.
Compile a list of every major field of small businesses, research the most popular types of specific businesses within those fields
Create a set of packages per major field of small business
Decide which field of businesses can benefit the most from subscription based payment methods.
Hire researcher(s) to help compile information for businesses
Hire bilingual employees that’ll go various businesses to help sell the idea, to get our initial first wave of employees underway.
Eventually hire web designer to help create website that customers can view and properly order marketing packages on
I'm currently paying people from third world countries like $5 an hour to help me research a lot of shit for it - hopefully by the end of this month I'll have a presentable idea to people.
>this person is a product of the american school system telling children they can achieve anything "if they put their mind to it"
I am a record producer from Portland, Oregon, looking to find the "Next Big Band." Obviously, said band would need to have some sort of good musical direction, perhaps akin to electronic and experimental rap.
If anyone has any ideas or would like to contact a real industry PRO let me know. My email is:
le jealous yuropoor
Also guys, if I do become rich & famous, i'll eventually start a worldwide campaign, promoting the fully ably bodied White heterosexual male as the most desirable demographic on Earth.
I mean it already is as far as I can tell, but I want to absolutely promote it in a way where it'll be the obvious consensus in society.
It'll be done in a tricky way that won't get anywhere racism, of course. So it'll be a bit tricky.
what if this kid actually hits something off
like of all the horrible brain diarrhoea something forms from the mess that actually meets an industry gap somewhere and somehow
obviously someone else would have to pick it up though and just pay him 10% for the initial blueprint
Why, yes, this is perhaps one of the many requirements as wells as being prepared to stay with the bend for 50+ years and have the talent to produce a string of classic albums that incorporate a variety of genres
This is way too detailed to be a troll. So I'm going to be honest with you Riley. You're having a manic episode. Or you're a maniac. Either way, you should quit all this Death Grips Avicii shit and start a Jaden Smith cover band.
i could have an embarrassing google docs account with loads of this shit but it doesnt mean im going places, you dont seem to focus on the realism of playing out details that would actually need to go into making something happen
is this real life? holy jesus
At first I thought OP got high as fuck and decided to take a huge brainshit on /mu/ but then
lol nope, just autism
i know this one is probably not op because lol
but if it is OP
the idea that there could be people on the other side of the world that are also dealing with your bullshit is absolutely hilarious
are you serious? what actually are these "unprecedented marketing packages"? you never even specified what you're offering or the actual incentive for businesses to invest, just "IT WILL BE HUGE".
dude, this is fundamental foundation of why all your ideas are hilarious. I don't know why you can't see that.
ideas are ideas
they arent blueprints they arent anything
theres no detail in an idea there is only what could be best described as a cloud, it looks like something from the outside but essentially its just floating bullshit
I think that everyone here needs to relax - we're obviously not helping each other here.
Probably the best idea is to send me your suggestions personally by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
from there I can easily figure out who will be part of which project and use you all to your full potentials
He can't see that because he is having a manic episode. Or schizophrenia. This is not a normal brain. I am worried about you OP. This is the funniest thing I've ever seen, and I want you to stick around tonight, but tomorrow morning, you march yourself right to a doctor mister!
No, no, no. That's what the researchers are for.
I need to research the small business fielfs, and the businesses within those fields
Then I need to research the best ideas for multi level marketing package PER TYPE OF BUSINESS
Then I need to pay researchers to help come up with a pricing system
THEN I'll have something to present to people, after I hire employees to help carry it out
I have a lot of solid ideas, I just née to further flesh them out, bit there's definitely se legitimately solid ideas in there.
so you're paying people to come up with something you can profit from, but you don't know what it is yet. and, even better, neither do they
please, please, PLEASE see a doctor. i'm genuinely worried for you. before wrong you'll be writing this bullshit with your own feces on the walls
It's midnight over here so Im gonna hit the hay
A planet wide campaign to annex countries into American states.
A private company would help draft a referendum (to save costs from both countries’
governments), by working the US and the country in question thoroughly, to minimize all
criticism and controversy. The company would be in charge of promoting it and drafting it for the
politicians of each country.
Aside from annexing entire countries, we'd invest massive money to spring up referendums in
regions tbreak apart from the rest of the country, and end up becoming a state (Sicily away from
Italy and into an American state, etc).
● Promote how this would economically and militarily benefit America
● Promote how certain regions would have more autonomy as American states than what
they have under their current country
● Promote the advantages they’d experience as American citizens would be things they
wouldn’t experience otherwise
● Solve any existing territorial disputes ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
This is seriously some of the funniest shit I've ever seen
It's like Helter Skelter x the Spruce Goose
Hey if you need a drummer then hmu man
>tfw I can sort of relate to OP
When I was 13, I went full autist and had this grandiose idea that I was going to become a world famous rockstar in this huge rock band. I created hundreds of Word documents detailing our discography (complete with record label, catalog number, and chart position), our backstory, created actual band members (using pictures found on google images of random people), writing gig lists, and having everything planned out exactly. I would hum and sing the songs to myself, and I'd even write supposed reviews of the fake albums. I wrote out a whole plan and it ended with the band breaking up after the guitarist got AIDS from a transexual groupie. I could play guitar and piano, but not nearly good enough to write the songs I had the ideas for. The only thing on my mind was imagining being in this fake rock band. This went on until I was 15, then I started taking meds and going to a doctor because this wasn't the only elaborate fantasy I was living in.
I'm pretty normal now (or as normal as I could be), but holy fuck OP talk to a doctor. I could upload some of those documents too hahaha.
Stranger thing is, I live in Portland too.
>I could upload some of those documents too
