Batten down the hatches, bar the doors and rock the fuck out, ILX. The theme is quite simply the COVID-19 pandemic, but you are encouraged to interpret this brief as creatively as possible.

Dropbox (or similar) links containing YOUR SUBMISSIONS are to be sent to imagoleuthic at gmail dot com as and when you're satisfied with/sick of them.

I will try to accept everything I receive, but sequencing is at the compere's discretion. Your homebound tweens' 14-minute utensil raga might be kicking things off, you never know.

I got Live 10. That’s a step. Whether I remember how to do anything with it, tbd.

I have a child's accordion that I purchased by mistake that I am looking forward to using on this.

Somewhere a child is broken-hearted.

I have a surprisingly muscular-sounding cigar-box one-string electric bass, and am wondering how to make it collaborate with a child's accordion

Oh, and it's fretless too #microtonal

Suite for One-String Fretless Electric Bass and Child's Accordion? It virtually writes itself.

you can be assured that our effort will not sound anything like that

no drums for a start

So am I.

I already made something, will keep fiddling with it for a while before going back to the original version I expect.

Have been looking for a home for my soca cover of Down With The Sickness for a while so this is kind of fortuitous.

ShariVari, Wednesday, 18 March 2020 10:05 (two months ago) link

lol

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Wednesday, 18 March 2020 10:06 (two months ago) link

Should be a special prize for a chutney cover of 'Jogging' imo

Le Bateau Ivre, Wednesday, 18 March 2020 10:08 (two months ago) link

I want to do this, although I haven't been inside long enough to crack open the recording gear.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Wednesday, 18 March 2020 13:36 (two months ago) link

I like this idea but I've never participated. Any guidelines? Is it music and video? Or just music? If so, what kind of music? :)

daavid, Wednesday, 18 March 2020 19:15 (two months ago) link

any music you can muster

if you want to provide a music video...idk, that could a nice addition. not saying i'm putting this on bandcamp just yet but

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Wednesday, 18 March 2020 19:20 (two months ago) link

OK, thanks!

daavid, Wednesday, 18 March 2020 19:26 (two months ago) link

I should warn you my contribution might be very long.

God gave toilets rolls to you, gave toilet rolls to you (Tom D.), Wednesday, 18 March 2020 19:35 (two months ago) link

How long we talking?

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Wednesday, 18 March 2020 19:44 (two months ago) link

I'm sure it'll fit in somewhere

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Wednesday, 18 March 2020 19:45 (two months ago) link

To the out-of-context thread! -_-

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Wednesday, 18 March 2020 19:45 (two months ago) link

I don't know, anything from 5 minutes to half an hour, I'm still working out what I'm going to do.

God gave toilets rolls to you, gave toilet rolls to you (Tom D.), Wednesday, 18 March 2020 19:55 (two months ago) link

Free-form plague poetry over a VCS3 freakout is my suggestion

itt: an excellent bunch of ilxors

hope ideas and inklings are beginning to congeal, or at least offer a glimmer of existence

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Tuesday, 24 March 2020 15:30 (two months ago) link

I have ample time and wherewithal but my ability to make music is perhaps hampered by lack of music-making tools and, well, musical ability. Still, put me down as a 'maybe'.

Unparalleled Elegance (Old Lunch), Tuesday, 24 March 2020 15:40 (two months ago) link

I've kind of got soundtracked into doing another piece of music for something else, but I'll get round to it eventually... hopefully.

Bridge Over Thorley Waters (Tom D.), Tuesday, 24 March 2020 19:56 (two months ago) link

... sidetracked not soundtracked! Wow, that was a good one!

Bridge Over Thorley Waters (Tom D.), Tuesday, 24 March 2020 19:56 (two months ago) link

i have finished a song

majority whip, majority nae nae (m bison), Thursday, 26 March 2020 14:15 (two months ago) link

I started off a Belgian New Beat thing but it didn't seem entirely fitting with the lockdown langour so i have gone glacial and repetitive instead.

ShariVari, Friday, 27 March 2020 08:43 (two months ago) link

I finished a thing, just trying to give it a name.

Wuhan!! Got You All in Check (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Friday, 27 March 2020 09:01 (two months ago) link

Keep 'em coming folks :)

strangely hookworm but they manage ream shoegaze poetry (imago), Friday, 27 March 2020 10:38 (two months ago) link

I have started a thing, hoping to work more on it over the weekend.

Maresn3st, Friday, 27 March 2020 15:16 (two months ago) link

Two submissions so far, both sounding lovely. Hard at work on my track - I hope you all are likewise!

Reminder that this is still open to anyone, and also that if you want to make more than one song, feel absolutely free!

ban laggy jazzer (imago), Tuesday, 14 April 2020 12:46 (one month ago) link

I'd like to be wrapping this up around this time next week though...

ban laggy jazzer (imago), Tuesday, 14 April 2020 12:47 (one month ago) link

How many submissions do you have so far, imago?

Wuhan!! Got You All in Check (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Tuesday, 14 April 2020 13:25 (one month ago) link

Working on one right now, ended up nowhere near what I started off doing. Should be ready by the deadline.

Just out of curiosity, why do people write out their email addresses like this rather than with the @ sign and so on?

paolo, Thursday, 16 April 2020 18:11 (one month ago) link

It appears as exam✧✧✧@exam✧✧✧.c✧✧ if you do.

ShariVari, Thursday, 16 April 2020 18:12 (one month ago) link

ty paolo!

when I come out, can you introduce me as Jagger (imago), Thursday, 16 April 2020 18:24 (one month ago) link

So 7 now? Anyone else who said they'd send a track who haven't done so yet? Apart from me, that is.

The Corbynite Maneuver (Tom D.), Thursday, 16 April 2020 18:27 (one month ago) link

Plenty!

when I come out, can you introduce me as Jagger (imago), Thursday, 16 April 2020 18:45 (one month ago) link

I'd better get my finger out then.

The Corbynite Maneuver (Tom D.), Thursday, 16 April 2020 18:48 (one month ago) link

I submitted mine via slack. We’ll see if that works

El Tomboto, Thursday, 16 April 2020 23:02 (one month ago) link

Will check tomorrow, but thanks!

when I come out, can you introduce me as Jagger (imago), Thursday, 16 April 2020 23:13 (one month ago) link

So far I have thirty seconds of the only song I’ve ever tried to make (teen emo lyrics aside). Got to push myself to add more to it (/loop it for thirteen minutes) but I think I can complete something before the deadline.

tangenttangent, Thursday, 16 April 2020 23:21 (one month ago) link

iirc ilx comp standards are pretty high. if you can’t master yelling into a looper and converting the results into a normalized mp3 best give up now

El Tomboto, Friday, 17 April 2020 04:43 (one month ago) link

i submitted a track!

lumen (esby), Friday, 17 April 2020 04:54 (one month ago) link

Please tell me it’s titled [Blocked. Tap to read.]

I don't know if I'll manage to get it together in time after drifting idly for a month... but I finally got some inspiration last night !

I guess you can all have until like Tuesday or Wednesday

when I come out, can you introduce me as Jagger (imago), Monday, 20 April 2020 13:15 (one month ago) link

Oh that's cool !
I've been working on it over the weekend and have just finished the instrumental parts... but I still have ALL the vocal parts to work on (melodies, lyrics, recording...) and the final mix to do.
Unless the vocal work is a disaster, I should be OK by Wednesday !

AlXTC from Paris, Monday, 20 April 2020 13:48 (one month ago) link

we even accept disasters

when I come out, can you introduce me as Jagger (imago), Monday, 20 April 2020 13:51 (one month ago) link

I miiiiiight have something in the next day or two

Vaguely Threatening CAPTCHAs, Monday, 20 April 2020 16:22 (one month ago) link

i should be done on Wednesday too

Elvis Telecom, Monday, 20 April 2020 19:02 (one month ago) link

Just noticed this thread. Does it have to be something made over the last month?

The Rampaging Goats of Llandudno (Nasty, Brutish & Short), Monday, 20 April 2020 19:31 (one month ago) link

Not necessarily, if you have something older that directly concerns the COVID-19 outbreak!

when I come out, can you introduce me as Jagger (imago), Monday, 20 April 2020 19:35 (one month ago) link

Happy to receive interludes, short songs, demos, one-take guitar workouts, anything tbh though

when I come out, can you introduce me as Jagger (imago), Monday, 20 April 2020 19:35 (one month ago) link

OK, I *think* I've managed to send you something.

imago is starting the sequencing now (though still anticipating a couple more entries) and it's sounding very exciting. :)

tangenttangent, Tuesday, 21 April 2020 19:22 (one month ago) link

It really is! Tomorrow is an absolute deadline unless you have a good excuse though...

Hiya LJ, just wondering what platform you plan to use to disseminate our dynamite hack?

Maresn3st, Thursday, 23 April 2020 09:40 (one month ago) link

Is there an updated thread with links to previous compilations?

Wuhan!! Got You All in Check (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Thursday, 23 April 2020 09:47 (one month ago) link

I plan to use Bandcamp and have been converting everything to WAV format - hope that is okay!

when I come out, can you introduce me as Jagger (imago), Thursday, 23 April 2020 09:50 (one month ago) link

That's great, was there talk somewhere of putting all the past ones on BC too? or did I just imagine that?

Hurrah, ty! Terminus est

I can send you the WAV file if you want.

AlXTC from Paris, Thursday, 23 April 2020 10:41 (one month ago) link

Already converted! But if you want your track in imperceptibly higher quality, go for it :)

when I come out, can you introduce me as Jagger (imago), Thursday, 23 April 2020 10:54 (one month ago) link

Eheh, no it's ok, thanks !

AlXTC from Paris, Thursday, 23 April 2020 11:01 (one month ago) link

And will there be cover art and label art, for us wot still like to make one for our ILX box set?

Ahah, I had forgotten the Lulu I & II with the UYI inspired covers !

AlXTC from Paris, Thursday, 23 April 2020 11:36 (one month ago) link

Amazed to find out my contribution to that is under the name Virgin Killer (5) on Discogs. One of the others is a female-fronted Japanese Scorpions tribute act, maybe I should hit them up for a collab?

varèse désserts (Matt #2), Thursday, 23 April 2020 11:53 (one month ago) link

Mark, I don't suppose you fancy uploading all the past comps onto LJ's BC page?

Maresn3st, Thursday, 23 April 2020 12:03 (one month ago) link

What is that, exactly?
