I just had a terrible idea. Would anyone in the fediverse be interested in a fedivision song contest?
And participating?
I... I think I would like that!
#eurovision #fedivision #music
ping @thor ๐Ÿคญ
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?

We could have a prompt or motto or something, if we want to.
More ideas appreciated!

Okay, I am doing this. I'm entering the #fedivision song contest!
#eurovision #FSC #ESC #music
Hurrah! Finally fun in the Fediverse! ๐ŸŽ‰

TQ ๐Ÿ‘‹ reshared this.

you shouldn't forget to add @musicians! There might be some contenders.
Yes, count me in. I hope you all like neobaroque music. ;)

I'm totally down for that!
#Fedivision announcement!

The Fedivision Song Contest (#FSC) will accept entries until Friday, 28th midnight CEST, so we have enough time to find collaborators if needed (#FedivisionCollab), come up with beautiful songs for the fictional country or faction you would like to represent.
Also, we won't run into scheduling troubles with this other music contest named #ESC.
Spread the word, have fun! I'm looking forward to the weekend of the 29th/30th when voting will take place!

So, who can enter the #Fedivision Song Contest you ask? Anyone with an account here in the fediverse! You choose which fictional country / faction you want to represent, announce your participation and make some music of your choice. If you want to make music with someone else, please use the #FedivisionCollab hashtag to find people.
Be kind, have fun, dare to make some serious music - or some kitsch! ๐Ÿ’– #FSC
You should represent your instance, I think.
oh oh oh this is wonderful and terrible and I'm going to join in because...

@smj@smj should we enter one song in the name of sdf?
@smj @smj
Ahhahaha! The Fedivision song contest! This is a terrifically terrible good pun and idea.
@CobaltVelvet should I make a song for octodon? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚
or choose a fictional country! I am, for example, representing the Bajoran Republic! #fedivision
that sounds like a fun idea. If my head wasn't deep in SuperCollider sound design mode, I'd participate.
can't you participate with supercollider? Maybe? It could be fun?
And yeah, I don't speak Bajoran either. I think it's up to the participants which language they choose. ๐Ÿ˜Š
I could probably use it to make some bass drones or keyboard pads. But my idea revolves around operatic vocals and possibly heavy distorted guitars.

Hmm, this is coming together in my head, the hardest thing will probably be the lyrics.

Ahahahah, this is going to be such a lovely timesink.
I reckon I could make a song for #Fedivision that I can also submit for #LibreMusicChallenge . This month we just have to use Airwindows effects. @unfa , @rghvdberg , want to join in?
you better believe i'd be straight reppin gont or havnor from earthsea but this also happens to be the date of my academic extensions so sadly i will miss this
ohh. That's sad indeed... Maybe next year?
@Eidon did you already know about this? (Also check the other toot below in the thread, by the same other)

hey there! Yeah, you pick a fictional country.
I'm feeling a bit under the weather right now, I'll come back to you soon.
Okay, take your time!
Guresuke-san and I will discuss which fictional country to come up with ^_^

For instance, ๆ—ฅใ‚ฟใƒชใ‚ข ^_^
Hello! Just wanted to check with you if we are officially registered for participation. Is that so, or do we still have to do something? Thanks for letting us know!
So I have a basic concept for a really simple rock song. So it's not ESC compatible at all, but for the #FSCโ€ฆ well maybeโ€ฆif I manage to record it during the weekend.
sounds super good!
maybe @unfa is interested in participating in the #fedivision Song contest? #FSC
oh no. oh no

TQ ๐Ÿ‘‹ reshared this.

Ohhhh yes!
ive been thinking for a while it could be fun to try to get some fedi artists together for a livestream show
Sounds like a cool opportunity!
A funny and somewhat terrible idea! Let's see if I will participate, the deadline is tough with a full time job und family. Is there already an idea where to upload the songs?
we've changed the deadline to next week! Did you see the announcement in the #fedivision thread?
No, we haven't decided where to upload. To be frank, I'd say the participants choose for themselves?
Sorry I didn't read the whole thread. Next week sounds a little better.

Any other rules about the songs? Are coversongs allowed? This would save me a lot of time.

As far as I could see instrumental songs would be okay though.
hm, haven't thought about cover songs... I think they aren't allowed in the ESC.
No problem! Actually I'm not into this ESC thing so I don't know the rules ๐Ÿ˜…
On your regular video hosting platform? You would just need to share the link and use the dedicated submission hash tag.
I think a video would be way to much work until next week. So I would prefer just an audio track. Not shure if I will have the time to do that either.
I love this so much! Are submissions audio-only or video?
we've discussed this a bit and agreed that adding video would be too much for this year. So this year at least, audio only. But maybe next year, with more time?
makes sense! gives me time to make a good costume.
@Gargron Thatโ€™s really a terrible idea. But I like it.
Its a terrible idea !
Whenever I start to sing people usually ask me to stop.
There are interested musicians here who need singers and vice versa, right? Are you interested in collabing? #fedivisionCollab?
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.
Can we have epic saxmen and singers in retro-scifi martian outfits?
