The Sol Invictus Mixtape Project
Your almighty GM demands musical satisfaction. You are my slave audience to achieve it. Get to work!
What to do
Assemble a mix. What that means is: create a sequence of songs you personally would like to share with the class.
- A CD-R is 80 minutes; a cassette is two 45 or 50 minute sides; so aim for between 60 and 100 minutes.
- The purpose of this exercise is to introduce people to new music, so:
- Avoid doubling up on artists, and
- Try to pick a good portion (not necessarily all) of songs as introductions to good bands, rather than the only song you like from a particular artist.
- Try to ensure some variance in the mix. I'm pretty sure none of you listen to Norwegian black metal exclusively or anything, so this shouldn't be too hard.
- Feel free to "theme" your mix in any particularly inventive way if you so desire.
- Include whatever you happen to like and/or think others would enjoy listening to!
- There's plenty of good mixtape advice in High Fidelity, both film and book versions. The most important advice: start off with something good, finish with something great, and make sure each set of two songs sounds good next to each other.
- Everyone can play mp3s. Use non-DRMed mp3s (any encoding and bitrate is fine) and include an m3u playlist to dictate track order.
- Zip the whole thing up in an archive file (.zip and .rar are both easily openable on essentially any platform), and
- Upload it to one of the several large file hosting/transfer services freely available on the web, or your own web space. (Off the top of my head, mediafire.com, putbigfile.com, or fileden.com should both work.)
- Post the link (along with your identity) at the bottom of the page here.
- Download everyone's mixes, listen, and enjoy!
