Hello all. If you are reading this, you might just want to stop by my hamienet page . . . <a href="http://www.hamienet.com/index.iva?i=8&LinkOwner=P.C.%20Vielle">Follow this link</a> and every few days starting March 22 (I just completely made up that date, but I will stay true to my word!), You might just see a new song uploaded. These are original compositions (composed by me for the record . . . ) and mp3s will also be available soon after upload (does a few days count as 'soon'?). So yeah, check it out. And I may just be having a contest of sorts. You all (or vosotros, as they speak it in Spain) can make some sweet album art for each song, and they might just be featured alongside the Practice (which is the name of the epic album to be released) artwork. My email will be available at a later date (mainly because I haven't created a P.C. Vielle one yet . . . ), so you can send them there. Note, all songs already on my page will be re-uploaded for consistency and some updates. So get listening and anticipate a lot! As long as you're listening, what do you all (vosotros!) think? Too annoying, too quiet, not enough insane percussion solos? Respond, please. WITH FEEDBACK!!!

. . . well this has been productive . . . !

Yeah! If for some crazy reason you'd like to stop by and say hello, or maybe you have some pressing matter you'd like me to discuss. I now have a P.C. Vielle email. Guess what it is . . . . . Tada! <a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a>!!!! Who would've guessed?!?!

Yeah, so get working on that album art if you don't want me to do it all by myself (and you get your name mentioned in the fine print! . . . Or just in the lower left-hand corner of the image . . .)

Hey all . . . all of the few of you who will view this post. If anybody's interested in getting album artwork featured for my songs, here are some specs:

1) The image must be <a href="mailto:[email protected]">mailed</a> to me via an attatchment.
2) The image must be a square, 500x500 pixels.
3) The title of the song that the artwork is for must appear somewhere.
4) The name that you want to be remembered by must be in the lower left-hand corner.
5) What I'm looking for: No people; if you going to use a digital photograph, use adobe photoshop's sketch feature to make at least <i>look</i> animated. I want some sort of abstract image . . . just be creative and make something that you think fits the song. I will also be putting out some "prompts" for each song, so you can make an image of a hot dog or whatever I suggest.
6) Lastly, I must reveive the image <b>at the very latest</b>, one week after it is released on HamieNet; that's when I'll upload the mp3 complete with the Practice album artwork and the song-specific album artwork (hopefully deseigned by you!)
7) If it's not your <b>original</b> artwork, it's not going to win.

Thanks again!

Is anyone even reading these posts? It says "13 views", but nobody's swung over to <a href="http://www.hamienet.com/index.iva?i=8&LinkOwner=P.C.%20Vielle" target="_blank">my page</a>, listened to a few songs, and posted some constructive criticism (or praise, if they're actually good - but you'll have to find out for yourself, now won't you?!?!).

Sorry about yeasterday, didn't have enough time to post anything (not that anybody cares at all . . . ) but I can't help but notice that I don't have quite as many artwork submissions as I anticipated (actually, there are almost none at all). So, get on your creative hats and get to work!

More music, though to help you along.

We have Happy Happyland (Condensed) and Hollow Knot.

Artwork prompts for Happy Happyland:
Use your imagination, but through in something orange and black . . .

And for Hollow Knot:
Well, you can go to town on this one too, without any suggestions from me. Just make it creepy . . . plenty creepy . . . .

It's my birthday today! How about all of you who read this do give me a birthday present. You can listen to the MIDIs that I have uploaded for your listening pleasure <a href="http://www.hamienet.com/index.iva?i=8&LinkOwner=P.C.%20Vielle" target="_blank">here</a> Then, using some of the prompts from earlier posts, create some album artwork for a song of your choice (using the rules) and email it to me <a href="mailto:[email protected]">here</a>. You can have it featured when I upload the mp3 versions of every song.

Well, the birthday song today is called O Home (The Tenth Daughter). Head over to my page, give it a listen, and create something that seems electronic . . . (this is the prompt for today - just one!). Have fun with it, and don't make <i>me</i> make all of the album artwork!

Iced Café has arrived (as of yesterday)! Check it out (I don't feel like including a link, so follow one of them in a previous post). Check out some music, and make some album artwork for Iced Café. Give me something that seems like it would be found in a coffee house. Lattes or something like that. Maybe a steeming cup of coffee (sure sounds good right about now . . . )

As for today, we have Sëo Yaer, the epic song that was originally entitle "Sea Mist". So, the prompt for this album artwork: some sea mist; blue, deep, tranquil. Make it good.

ANd remember the rules!

Welcome to the Caribbean! Check out <a href="http://www.hamienet.com/midi30180_Tropical-Island.html" target="_blank">Tropical Island</a>.

Yeah, so how was it?

Make some album art. But do you know what I want you to do? Use only the color green. Make it abstract. Give me a bunch of shades of green swirled together, a collection of green solored circles, just be sure to have it be GREEN!

Have fun and send it to me via <a href="mailto:[email protected]">email</a>

Check out the rules if you're interested.

Hay más cosas que Uds. necesitan "check-out-ar".
There are more things that you all need to check out.

Go to my page (again, too lazy to include a link, just follow one of the other five million I've already included).

Album Artwork . . . :

Pipe: Give me something black and white. Go crazy with those colors.
Cunita Oscura: Go as plain as possible, but make it a cream colored design.
Carlie's Strike: Inspired by the word "township", make this cover like a city grid.
JC Grand (Straight and Eleventh): A pointless jazz song, reflect that in art.
Q: Probably my favorite song on the whole album, I want this one to be red and have some white reflections in the center.
Progress Two: Samba Nova! I want gold, gold, ¡oro, oro! (silver won't cut it)

The Practice album is complete! Quick, email in your artwork!

The concluding piece for the album? Exeunt (fitting title, right?)

For Exeunt's artwork, I want a lime greenish background with tons of just random swirls and lines and stuff. Make them into a picture. Maybe spaghetti? I don't know, you decide! But anyways, I won't undergo another project like this for a long time, so take advantage of this one to get recognition!

Thanks to all who have helped me on this album, and to those of you who participated in the artwork contest. MP3's of all songs will be arriving shortly (just after I make a soundfont arrangement to convert them all and decide which album artworks will win). I have a ot on my plate, so thank you all again, and I hope to be in touch soon enough.
