The Beginnings of LOFAM 3
Hi friends. Veritas Unae here (that guy who decided to mash up Doctor with Doctor Who, and make some piano jingles and a website).
Did you like LOFAM and LOFAM2? Were you knocked out of your seat when you were greeted in November last year with an album of (almost) completely original tracks by Homestuck fanmusicians, before the second trip to the Land of Fans and Music in December saw a massive release of seventy Homestuck fansongs? Would you like another? I am almost certain the answer is a resounding “yes”. If not then… well… I apologise in advance but LOFAM 3 is almost certainly going to be a thing. So too bad. (clear out some lame songs, these are gonna be better)
We’ve got a good team of people who are hanging around to help out again. But this is still an album for the fans and like LOFAM and LOFAM2 before it, you can help us out by giving us a short list of fan songs from whatever sources that you’d like to see on the album. The aforementioned team will then go through and select the best of the best to be in the album, which will be released on hsfanmusic.skaia.net. Also planned is a page for the original LOFAM on that same website where you can download that album without having to go through the hoops of wondering where to find it or why you can’t download it from Bandcamp.
When the MSPA forums come back online, we’ll put up a thread there to act as a more central hub than this blog, but for the mean time send your suggestions into here. A small ground rule - don’t put forward your own track. Don’t put forward your own track.Send all your track nominations to this blog, and we’ll do our best to sift through them all. We’re also looking for artists who might want to help the album by making track art. Lune is heading that, so forward your requests to her tumblr.
Other than that, watch this space for updates. Currently, the deadline for this stage of putting forward music choices will last until the 25th of March. Offers of art will be open slightly longer, as getting a finalised list of songs and contacting all the artists for permission needs to be completed before we start searching for track art.
Main points to recognise:
- Until the thread goes up, send requests to this blog for songs and volunteering for art to Lune.
- You can put in nominations until the 25th.
- Don’t nominate your own song.
- The original LOFAM will be moved to the hsfanmusic website sometime in the future.
Get ready for some more Fans and Music, my friends.
I’ll be partially involved with this one as well. Get hyped!
