Hey /collab/! Normally I just lurk around /pic/, so this is a little weird for me. =P
Get to the point, Taquito.
I had a crazy idea today. To preface this, I'm no composer. I've squeezed out a few songs, but nothing outstanding. Well, today, I set up a Bandcamp in hopes that I could make a few dollars off of these "products of boredom", as I refer to them. While pondering how to get people to notice me, I thought of message boards, and ponychan popped up first. I wondered if I could arrange a pony song to attract people. The idea morphed from a scheme to get money into this: Equestria's Online Orchestra.
This is a baby idea, so I haven't really thought it out yet; I just want some feedback on the idea. What I envision is this: I, or some other talented individual, would compose some arrangement or medley of MLP music. Once it was done, whomever composed it could email the music to people who agreed to play. Then, each individual would record themselves playing whatever part they can (with heavy reliance on a good metronome), and email it back to whomever composed the song. They compile all the parts into one track, and share it with the world.
It just seems like a cool idea to me. In a way, it reminds me of Tubachristmas a little bit; total strangers working together and creating something beautiful for the sake of what they love, be it tubas or ponies.
So, /collab/, tell me; is this a terrible idea? Is it a great idea? I'm sure it's not entirely an original idea, even though I've never come across another online orchestra, but I think it could be fun.

It *started* as an idea to get money. If I anything like this happened, it'd be completely free for sure. The only reason I included the thing about my composing skills is so I didn't set people's expectations too high. If someone more talented than I liked the idea, I'd welcome their help in making this project come to life. No matter what happens, I'd still be a "project manager" of sorts. Finally, my composing skills has nothing to do with my playing abilities. I can play trombone, euph, and bass at a college level, plus guitar and piano at a basic to intermediate level. No matter who writes the music, I'll be playing *at least* one part.

And with that, I believe it is time for bed.

This community does not welcomes "projects" targeted to make a profit.

On top of that your "project" falls into the category of "I have no talent so send me your awesome work so I could use it to get "my" project completed for me."

You're misunderstanding me.

Listen, I am a very insecure person. It took me over 12 hours to convince myself to even ask if the idea was possible. This idea is something I care about a lot. I understood the /collab/ rules before I posted, and I know I'm not violating any of them. I just fail to get the words in my head onto the screen without losing some content in the process.

I'll edit that into the OP for you. I understood it, but clearly this anon didn't, so I'll put some of that in the OP for clarification.

I'd also welcome someone that knows how to make a more coherent thread.
Btw the name of a thread is the name of a pony mmorpg.

Exactly the idea.
I'm hesitant to say we'd try for a video like this one. The project itself would be daunting enough.
Is there anywhere else I should post this to spread the word and possibly get the ball rolling? Either in ponychan or other sites?

By the way, thanks for editing the post, ThirtyFour!

Maybe you'll find people on >>>/media/, shouldn't be a problem to make a thread there as well.
