SecretMixter IV: Zed Revolution

SecretMixter will be returning from its slumber to inspire some noise again. It’s time for the Zed Revolution!

SecretMixter is a remix game. The names of the participants are collected and then each person is randomly assigned another participant. Everyone then produces a remix for the artist they received in the draw. There is no grand prize or material reward. The point of the game is to have some fun, test your skills with the random draw and see how your material is put to use.

SecretMixter is not an official game or contest of ccMixter and is not officially affiliated with ccMixter or Creative Commons. It is run and maintained privately by PorchCat. Please do not harass the ccMixter site admin or Creative Commons staff with questions, comments or concerns. Direct any questions or comments about SecretMixter to PorchCat.

Each name is manually added to the system by PorchCat. When first logging in, you must create a password. The deadline to have your name entered is Thursday October 18, 2007. Names will shuffled and assigned by the system on Friday October 19, 2007. The upload date is Tuesday October 30, 2007. The SecretMixter site will be announced shortly.

To get an idea of how things have gone in the past, please check out the previous SecretMixter remixes:
http://ccmixter.org/media/t...
http://ccmixter.org/media/t...

Rules:
1. Have fun. (First rule of any game.)
2. Do not tell anyone who you picked for the SecretMixer. (Or else it’s a not a secret!)
3. At least 50% of the mix should be material from the person you have picked. (Anything is fair game. Originals, remixes, samples, a cappellas, et cetera.)
4. Do not upload your track until the upload day. (Tracks uploaded to ccMixter.)
5. Add the tag “secretmixter” to your entry.
5. Entries should be Halloween themed in some form or fashion. Make it spooky, dark, creepy … use the sounds of noctornal animals, odd whispers and eerie lyrics. Or, just do whatever you feel for the season.
6. Have FUN!!!


So come join in the fun!! Please reply to this thread or contact PorchCat through his ccMixter page if you want to enter the game.

*meow*

P.S. Spread the word!!

I only have a few samples on ccmixter , that’s true, but as there are other people here that uploaded less things than me, I thought it wouldn’t be a problem. Is there something I haven’t understood about this game ?

Are we to pick who we want to remix or will the system pick someone for us to remix?????? If so I’m still waiting.

permalink   fourstones Mon, Oct 22, 2007 @ 1:35 PM
no we are not supposed to pick ourselves, if PC does not come out of radio silence I’ll do the shuffle in the next day or two.

Do the draw Fourstones. Let’s get this rolling. And perhaps a delayed publish date..? I wouldn’t mind pushing till Nov. 14th - to give everyone time.

Hope nothing bad has happened to PorchCat.

Seriously, though- C’mon PC, we’re getting worried here, we’re missing them posts that always end in

well i got in the game and know whom/what to mix.. but it was told we’re not supposed to upload untill told to do so. and as u said, it’ll be 9th of Nov, right? k..

permalink   teru Tue, Nov 6, 2007 @ 10:05 AM
What fourstones meant was that the assignment email informing you of who to remix also included the deadline date. Therefore when you asked when the deadline was he was worried that you may have not gotten your assignment email.

All is good. : )

permalink   fourstones Wed, Nov 7, 2007 @ 6:24 PM
I would feel a whole lot better about this conversation if you could answer this question:

Did you or did you not get an email from ccMixter that tells you who to remix and when to upload?

Yes or No…

EVERYONE! Don’t forget #5, add the ‘secretmixter’ tag to your remix…. I’ve seen 2 or 3 without it already, and it would be nice to be able to pull them all up from the tag browser.

permalink   Morusque Fri, Nov 9, 2007 @ 7:38 AM
Actually the tag doesn’t seem to occur when we add it.

permalink   fourstones Fri, Nov 9, 2007 @ 10:48 AM
sorry, I overslept — there’s a special submit form for this secret mixter, it will add the tag automatically.

I think I got all the uploads so far…

Nice contributions all around.

One thing. I noticed that submissions made with the special secret mixter upload category, doesn’t have the remix tag.

I know it’s secret and stuff. But wont it be extremely hard to stumble across these uploads?
