The sixth Facepunch Collaborative Album is here and have no fear because it's free. How do you listen?
Why are we telling you what track to start on?
It ends up that the majority of people start listening to an album on the first track. This creates a problem where the first track gets 30% of the listens, the second track gets 20% of the listens, ect, ect..., and the last track gets 1% of the listens. Bandcamp doesn't allow for track shuffling but one other way around it is to ask people to start on a different track with help from a random number generator. Just click the little play button next to the track. Those with tracks towards the end of the album will be glad that people actually heard their work.
What is this project all about?
This is a collaboration where musicians from Facepunch work independently and submit songs for the album. There are few requirements and no genre restrictions which allow for a lot of diversity. If you're interested in getting involved in the next album keep an eye on the musicians gig room. Schmoe222 intends on running the next collaboration. You can get an idea as to how the album comes together by looking at that last thread. Also, be sure to check out the previous albums which can be found on our Bandcamp.
A good reason to listen
A contributor to the album has given incentive to listen to the album and to give feedback to the artists. As he explains.
Q: Is it really free?
Q: You said it was free but it is asking me for a price.
A: Try entering in "0" for a price. If that doesn't work we likely ran out of download credits. As the goal of the album is to be free here is a link to a mp3 (320) download and here is a link to the flac download. We will purchase more download credits as soon as possible.
Q: If I donate money where will it go?
A: It could go one of two places. The first being to download credits. Bandcamp gives you 200 download credits each month. Download credits allows you to download the album or a song in whatever format you want for a credit per song. When the album releases, the credits get eaten up pretty quickly due to how many songs are on the album. The credit package is as follows:
$9 USD for 300 download credits
$20 USD for 1000 download credits
$75 USD for 5000 download credits
After the amount of traffic slows down to a point where nobody is really downloading anymore, the rest of the money will go towards a charity. The charity in particular will depend upon a vote granted there is a decent amount of money. If there is only 30 cents left, voting or donating wouldn't make much sense for obvious reasons.
Q: How was the track order decided?
A: Random list generator with the exception of Vedicardi who asked to be last.
