Not simply because I've had some difficulty acquiring something I really want for a track I really want to submit/explaining some ideas to some other members due to being busy with a bunch of nonsense but I felt that when the compilation was announced much felt too soon anyway.
Any possibility we could see the audio submission deadline bumped back (and if necessary, the other two)?
Personally, I've seen a lot of ideas sort of bounce around and then disappear just to give way to new ideas that aren't nearly ready yet mainly because of the theme to the compilation, which is not one I'm against, but it's not quite as cohesive as it could be. I'd spoken with some former collaborators who more or less went from wanting to pump out some sort of politically charged thing to realise later that's not quite so much lasting and direct focus elsewhere.
So there's this definite theme of cultural disillusion that I think fits and not only want to work on more but work on with others. I think VII could and probably should see the most synergy between the musicians on Twoism whether that be a lot of people doing tracks together, or someone reprising someone else's motif in their own track to do something different with it....I'm not in charge but I do want to see some really developed, amazing things come out of this after the long break. Spontaneity is great, though something tells me this isn't the place.*
That is a really solid idea. I like this. Synergy in Twoism artists working together towards an idea instead of everything being a separate submission in hopes that there is a solidly presented idea as a result. That should make Robin's job a lot easier in getting the album to flow, too.
I'm sure that many have already finished and submitted tracks, of which there is no need to exclude from the volume. I'm almost done making my own submission, but I will happily work on another submission with others as well.
The dates being pushed back would help a lot though, I agree. I don't want to rush the ideas or the sound behind what I submit.
