It. Is. Time.

Let us raise our hooves and voices, make a chorus out of an Aria, turn our faces to the shores of Season 3. This month, WE SING.

Submission Rules:

--Submit to my e-mail (Subject: This Day Aria), or links to files here. My e-mails (either works, just post here that you sent it, and to which one it was sent) are: [email protected] or [email protected]
--These should be either .WAV or a high-bitrate MP3 (320 is preferred, but 256 is fine).
--The files should be labeled <creditname>_partName (for example, mine could be called Bpendragon_Cadance.mp3).
----- For the part of Chrysalis please use "name_Changeling" for the main part and "name_reprise" for the reprisal.
--All levels of talent are welcome. Whether you're a great singer, an OK one, or just doing it for the hay of it, you're welcome to submit!
--Deadline is TBD. Though not till the end of May at a minimum.
(yes I just Copypasta'd the rules from "The Perfect Stallion" and edited them for my needs)

Backing Music: (not perfect, but we'll cover out the echo, it's similar to what Toaster and I did back on "Find a Pet") :

I'll figure out something for the reprise on backing music. If we have some musician's out there, please, you are quite welcome to send me stuff.
Also: Album art, we need album art. My last attempt was, shall we say, lacking?

I've been looking for an excuse to record this song.
Also, these are fun as shit, and I want to redeem myself for the horrible timing I had in Perfect Stallion.

I could probably do something for cover art, too.
>> No. 37527
I was just waiting for this to appear. I'm definately in.
>> No. 37536
Fuck yeah time to do this again!
>> No. 37557
Not sure if I'll have time for this one; I'll be busy moving my stuff into a new apartment (and building a recording studio to boot :) ). But if you need album art, just call. :)
>> No. 37584
I'm Calling. For what specifically, I'm not sure.
Don't worry, It'll likely be after I graduate in mid-June that I cut it off, I just realixed how much I have to do between now and then.

  Could I make a request that we do the male version of the lyrics, as written by Victor Frost? Most of us who will be recording this are males, and I think it would sound better if we sang "No, I do not love the bride/For my heart is dead inside" instead of "No, I do not love the groom/In my heart there is no room". I'm not comfortable with singing as the opposite gender.
>> No. 37651
I tried embedding the YouTube video, but it didn't work. This is the video I'd like to use the lyrics of:

I'll send both Cadance and Changeling parts to your first address. Have already done a cover for fun , so I just divided it into Cadance and Changeling part .
>> No. 37660
Cool, I will certainly be submitting...

I found an instrumental version without the echo-y vocals
made by MandoPony
>> No. 37665
So I tried posting earlier, bu the server went down and the post didn't take, so here is an updated version of that which I hoped to post before biking out to school.

OP: If you want to, you can, though expect your voice to be cut out at that time considering we are using the show as the framework.

Continued Thoughts:
Why don't I just cut out all the male voices at those parts? Unless you really want to be in there.

OP: Got them, downloaded, listened to Cadance before hopping on the bike, sounds pretty decent.

no new thoughts there

One last thing, I'm going to get myself a new Tripcode later. Preferably with the string "DaGreat" somewhere in there, I just realized what the last three letters of mine are.... oops. I swear that this was not intentional. I'll post what I was using as a code in my first post with the new trip.

Sorry to anypony who may have seen that and gotten offended.
>> No. 37675
So do we just record the song in parts?
>> No. 37679
do we have to have the back ground music or would you rather I send you the sung part without the music? I can do it either way doesn't matter to me. I've been wanting to do a collaboration. =^.^=
>> No. 37680
Alright, count me in! I had a lot of fun on "The Perfect Stallion" and this is my favorite song from the finale, and maybe ever.
Will send in both parts ASAP.
>> No. 37683

Sent to the bpendragon one
>> No. 37687

Sans Background music if you please.

Glad to have you!

Got it, haven't listened to it yet, bro has commandeered my headphones for the time being.
Just going to do Chrysalis? I'm fine with that, just checking.

New Trip! Not what I wanted, but after waiting for 5 hours for a tripcode generator to spew out a trip with the string I just chose a new one. My old one was #Bpen you can check that here:

"OP: If you want to, you can, though expect your voice to be cut out at that time considering we are using the show as the framework. Why don't I just cut out all the male voices at those parts? Unless you really want to be in there."

The way you worded that wasn't very clear, but I think I understood you. I guess if I can't get us all to sing male-modified lyrics, then I'll just have to go with the flow and (*ugh*) pretend I'm a female/bride. I really don't like that.

Don't get me wrong - I love the song and its melody, and it would be a ton of fun to sing... with Victor Frost's lyrics.
>> No. 37705
Well I'll join in just for the fun of it. I recorded both Cadance and Chysalis parts together in one go as I sung it though, but I'll send in as Cadance.
>> No. 37707
Okay, I've sent mine in to the bpendragon email.
I'm singing as Cadance, but I'm able to do Chrysalis as well.

Yes and no.
We are using the lyrics as they are given in the show. That is my call.

Missed this post first time through, yes, I believe I shall use that. Though TBH The echoey BG vocals aren't all that noticeable unless you're trying to hear them.

Everypony else who has submitted: Not on my normal machine, so I cannot download or listen, I will as soon as I can.

When is this due?

I"m FINALLY gonna put something into this. Still kicking myself for missing the Perfect Stallion, so here goes! Sent it to bpendragon.

Please Use "[email protected]" to send me your submissions. "[email protected]" is not properly receiving e-mails from new people.
Please re-send submissions there, or link to a soundcloud/mediafire/what-have-you here. I apologize for wasting your time with that e-mail. I just want everypony to be in on this.

Again, I am sorry.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and think the ponies you have listed so far are still good to go. Right?

>The melody in This Day Aria runs on an extremely strange scale of which either A) changes keys twice a measure, B) is based on a whole-step-half-step scale with a few exceptions, C) is an invention of the composer, or D) purely tonal

Yeah, I'm afraid there aren't that many people who can precisely hit all of the correct pitches in this song. I know I was able to, though! And based on your comment, I'm sure you were able to. (I mean, I was in choir for five years, and I play piano...)

Everypony who is submitted gets their singing in at least some capacity. Due to having a presentation later this afternoon and a final paper to write I have gotten very little done in the editing department. Fortunately starting nest Wednesday I should be free for hours on end.

Holy crud, I totally forgot about this. I recorded my parts nearly a month ago, but for some reason didn't send them in.

I've sent my Cadance and Changeling tracks to the Campboys address, and I'd appreciate a confirmation that you received them. Worst-case I can post the Mediafire links here.

No Reprise recorded yet, but I'm not 100% sure I'll get a chance to record it before the deadline anyways, so don't wait up for me.
>> No. 40278
Will do as soon as I get to the computer that has the files. Mom set up her own Dropbox so I can't easily view the list here. (since whenever I log onto the Dropbox website everything on this machine derps WAY out.)

I've been slowly plodding along. Keyword: Slowly. It would be a minor miracle for it to be done by the end of the month. Complete and total Celestial Intervention for it to be finished by Everfree NW. Both are because of the aforementioned Everfree, and my mom limiting computer time. I'd say mid-September is a reasonable goal at this point, considering that I'm also searching for a job.
Remember you can always follow the Twitter and Tumblr from the previous post, they are more likely to give updates than you are to see here.
As it is, I'm headed to Audacity now.

I GIVE UP!!! Not really, but you'll have to bear with me. Computer time is being limited by my mother, a job search, and just life in general.

If anypony would like to help, please send me an e-mail or a message on Tumblr or Twitter (I check them more often than I check here), I would really appreciate it.

I'm in over my head and things aren't looking good in the near future. Otherwise I'm just hanging a release date of "Eventually, and hopefully soon" I really honestly apologize.

I'm insanely sorry guys, but even with the amazing help I've been getting from Simul, I'm just unable to do this. I'm burnt out like you wouldn't believe.

I've already chatted with Simul (we know each other IRL) and he's going to continue to work on it slowly. I also have all the data files if you want them, or you can e-mail me and I can add you to the shared Dropbox folder.
Please use this e-mail for contact: [email protected]

I know I'm a tad late on this, but we really should get this up and going again. I've been waiting for this collab for quite a while, but never realized it was on here. Lets push to the finish!

I know it's hard to finish somethings some times, but you just have to keep moving forward. when it stops being fun, you might need to take a step back and ask yourself why. I really hope you can finish this project, but if it never get finished, we will understand.
