Hello everyone,

some of you might remember me as Phobos from DAR vol 1 and 2, but since than I decided to change a name because there were lots of Phobos' releasing music so I changed a project name to Frozen Thoughts, released an album on Glacial Movements, etc etc.

Anyway, as we discussed via email, it would be really nice to work on DAR vol 4 compilation which will be bandcamp digital release only, no cds to cut the expenses down and make everything more easy for everyone.

So, my suggestions are:
- style: pure dark ambient
- 10 tracks from 10 different artists -> maybe 15 if there is really a big amount of high quality work, but I am more for 10...so, one track per artist
- there should be internal vote between participants which tracks will appear on the compilation (I believe we had something like this for vol2?)
- try to mix your tracks as best possible before mastering (if you need help, ask - its really important in this day and age that your music is balanced and has certain audio quality to it)
- mastering -> we can maybe give our tracks to be mastered for final touch by Atrium Carceri (from Cryo Chamber) or Ah Cama Sotz as before, we can vote on this one as well
- artwork -> I am not an expert on this one, so maybe someone can suggest an artist?
- if owner of Dark ambient radio is still interested, maybe he should lead the financial part of the project (bandcamp, royalties, marketing, etc), because he has done a great job so far and always was transparent, but its up to him to decide. If anyone else wants to step up, pls say so.
- suggestion on digital album price on bandcamp should be anywhere between 8 to 12 euros, what do you guys think?


So, if anyone else has something to add, pls, do so.

And if this project comes to life (I hope it will), I am signing my self down to participate in this one and gonna do my best to do a great dark ambient song.

Thanks and good luck!

I surely can't compete with a 'real' label in terms of marketing, but I will do what I can to keep it together with a little help from the participants.

I'd say, first let's see what we can achieve before we talk about the price. If we manage to release a comp full of polished masterpieces that redefine what people once thought about dark ambient, 12 € would be ok. For a collection of hearable, interesting, experimental, rather raw stuff, it also could be 3€ / 'name your price'. I'm sure we will find a consensus as soon as we are finished producing. But let's not to raise the bar to a level most won't reach and just start to happily glue ideas together and see what hatches from it. smiley

More seriously, you are so humble Thomas, but I know you are a very wise person and you are the one for this task.
On the other hand, I like the idea of collective work, each contributing ideas for a greater achievement.
For this new compilation I'm sure we will all do our best.

I just sent a mailing to the 18 projects that were interested in becoming part of Vol. 4 back in 2014.

I have no problems doing a release with us four. This could be more of a split release than a comp -- or we might decide to have more collab tracks.

The more, the merrier!

There is no need to get a track done in a haste -- but the deadline should not be too far away, so the project doesn't fall asleep again.

Maybe it would be a good idea, if we don't have a deadline yet but try to find a starting point and play with ideas without pressure and have each of us report after one or two months what one has achieved so far, so we can synchronize. Good idea?

Would also be nice to get some newcomers on board. (But maybe the concept of web radio or web forum isn't apealing enough for millenials.) smiley

Honestly: This forum isn't as alive as it once was. What do you think: Do we better need a Signal, Matrix, Slack, Discord, Telegram, or Whatsever group to not stay outdated?

On the other hand: The web is still the primary collective archive of the internet...

I like forum's form. New things are appealing, right-now and all the goodness of new communication technology but this is pure lovely old school. smiley
Newcomers will be welcome too. Old and new blood.

hello everyone - I am interested but I am not quite sure if I really hit the bar of "classic dark ambient". Most outside listeners consider the stuff as "Dark Ambient" - dark ambient listeners call it more drone/experimental. But I am will to partcipate. Thomas/Admin knows some of my stuff so let me know if you consider this.smiley

Hi all! Compiling some tracks to a meaningful playlist -- and in a way composing a single track -- is the art of providing elements the listener knows together with elements that surprises and challenges the listener in a good way. It makes a difference if the surprises come from ignorance and random eclecticism or from knowing the codes of different styles before intelligently transcending a style at some point to combine elements from different styles. Having said this, I wouldn't cling overly to the request of providing a pure dark ambient track, if you are able to transcend it.
