So far I think we could do it this way:
- participants choose their allegiance (any fictional faction will do)
- participants make a song until Thursday, CEST (or some other time)
- voters listen to and vote for their favs until Friday?
There are interested musicians here who need singers and vice versa, right? Are you interested in collabing? #fedivisionCollab?
Personally, I'd love to listen and vote, but I'm not sure I could produce a song for a contest - I haven't made music in years and never on my own.
@TQ @Xjs that's certainly doable! Now that I think about it, I think it'd be easier to build a fediverse bot, where people write their votes to and register their fantasy country with. Then no one has to trust some random website with their fediverse login, and it'd automatically be limited to anyone who uses the fediverse, without being mastodon-specific.
@y6nH totally agree. But on the other hand, we're totally free to make a short song, a rough one, or multiple people could collaborate...
@TQ that’s a great idea! Do we have to perform live? Make up a country name? Everyone can just submit on their own, or maybe people elect who is representing an instance?
That could be so much fun.
Kind of making the most out of the federated structure of the Fedi.
@stragu I thought we could make it a bit more free, without tying the competition to the instances. It's limiting in a strange way, and I think it's more important to create than to limit access. My idea was to go with fictional countries!
And due to pandemic and us being mere mortal beings, I'd say no live performance.
Wow, I like that idea a lot, and it's also very nice to see how fast it gains traction!
I wouldn't create a song, and I probably wouldn't listen too much to other songs either, but I like the vibe, and I would cheer for people participating!
So nice to see this happen!
@TQ How would it work? I mean, I can't sing to save myself, and only noodle around with guitars every now and then.
@david im certain there are lots of people who can sing here, you could collaborate! Or... You can do an instrumental piece, nothing wrong with than in my opinion.
@TQ Yes I'd love to but I first need to work on my skills. But I'd totally love to so a collab one day.
