What would be some interesting ways to physically release your music?
I tried to get one of my songs on one of those musical toothbrushes but I don't think it's possible
Let's share some nutty ideas
I've been laughing for the past three minutes about tooth tunes lmao
One of my ideas is a nearly completely useless laser-cut wooden box that you have to stick your head inside of to listen to the music
i once thought about how crazy it would be to collect a bunch of 1st and 2nd generation ipod nanos, load them with my album in flac and then juryrig them somehow so they can't be synced.
it's kind of like making your own cassettes when you think about it, an outdated medium with very high sound quality. i'm sure hipsters would be all over that shit
My older sister bought me one for Christmas. It was a terrible joke present, no one was laughing just her.
you mean like this?
the only reason anyone paid attention to this hack's shitty "minimalist" chiptunes was because they were being generated when you pressed play.
Here's my rough design, guys. Any ideas? I have the motivation and access to a laser cutter so if I like your ideas it will most likely become a reality.
I'm liking the food bowl idea
And it's not done yet
that would be uncomfortable as fuck to use. it's like a combination stocks and virtual boy
She'd rather watch
Okay, here's a shot with an open back for clarity
I'm going to use cheap airplane-style headphones, the kind where both side are connected to the cord, not just one. I'll break the headband part so that I will be able to spread them apart. I'll harness one to each side and then harness the mp3 player behind the hole so that the buttons are accessible. I will also put a hole somewhere to feed a charging cable through so that the listening will never end.
My current selections for the headphones and mp3 players are:
but I'd appreciate further recommendations
Also, should there be an indent for the nose or should it be left to be as uncomfortable as possible?
All ideas welcome
A sheet of sandpaper superglued to the area the face will make contact with
>Also, should there be an indent for the nose or should it be left to be as uncomfortable as possible?
in lieu of an indent, do this:
make a mold of the listener's face, and create a concrete bowl out of the hollow. upend it so it faces the sky, and glue it to the listening station.
now, instead of a comfortable resting spot, they have to look down at their face, and press down on it with their head. only those truly committed to the music will crush their actual face into a concave crater of mangled flesh and bone. and they will appreciate the music more than anything else they have in their entire life (and not just because they die moments later). trenches in the surface of the box collect blood and other by-products, safely depositing them in a bucket for sanitary disposal
Not sure, my album is almost done so probably not until it is finished. And because it'll be pretty cheap and I have the money, I might not even need pre-orders
I'm thinking it'll be an edition of 10
That may be a bit too expensive for my current budget, however you've given me an idea. What if, where the face will go, there is a bowl that must be filled with water. The water will be the only thing conducting electricity between the headphones and the mp3 player, so the listener must fill the bowl with water and place their face in it in order to listen.
Absolutely, this is a must

I like the idea of having to hold your breath in electrified water. however, why not make the listener's body complete the circuit? clips attached to the listener's nipples, and the power source is a stationary bike that the listener must pedal
It's not super interesting, but when my band's demo is done we're ordering a heap of blank USBs in bulk as well as enough custom stickers with our logo on it, then we're just gonna load the demo onto all of them and drop them all over the hippest parts of the city. Like, in cafes and record stores and shit.
I got the idea from TV on the Radio, but they used CDs.
how are you attaching the cardboard at the joints? Ideally, it would be with a nail gun, fired from at least 3 feet away so the nail can build up speed midair for a more secure hold
>drop them all over the hippest parts of the city. Like, in cafes and record stores and shit.
>You should make jewelry out of the usb sticks
why not fire them at people with slingshots?
"bet that hurt, huh? well our new album is perfectly painless!"
I've always thought it would be cool to make a wooden music box that you had to wind up and it would play your album, or maybe just a song. It wouldn't be the full thing or maybe just for simpler songs. I mean imagine some ornate wooden music box you have to crank and then you hear Avril 14th trickling out... Then at the end Richards face pops out at you from the wood
Im gonna promote an album and tell everybody to go to a beach, but instead of performing I'm gonna take the albums and burn them in front of the fans that came out while my friend jerks off in the distance.
the shape of music as we know it is changing
That kinda reminds me when I used to pirate pc games the setup would fill the whole screen and wont go until the game installs
Just imagine some hipster starts freaking out becuase he plugged the stick drive into his macbook and the music "virus" fills the whole screen, turns the volume all the way up and wont stop playing till the album is over
I have that same rug,
You're a fucking idiot. Just post it on a bandcamp/soundcloud like everyone fucking does. Stop trying to be unique and cool like that lead singer from Perfect Pussy who put her vag blood on her first pressed vinyls
The Personal Perception Palace Prototype is now complete.
I will be posting results soon
You fucker, I remember telling you this idea like a few months ago
I think an ecigarette music device would be a neat aesthetic, obviously a main point of contender would be vaporwave but I think hip-hop, shoegaze or drone would work too
Now, hear me out.
How do you stop people from breaking the shell of the Personal Perception Palace, in order to reach the tender meat inside that is your music? I think it needs to be electrified.
Well, every screw will be covered with a cap and superglue to prevent easy deconstruction. The USB charger and headphone cable will be glued and taped to the mp3 player to prevent tampering should the box be opened
It works like a charm
Props to the stranger I asked to pose
>this motherfucker gets the first listen
>STILL not up for preorder
I swear to christ this industry is going down the shithole.
>"hey would you mind sticking your head in this box while I take pics"
>"sure why not"
Nothing in this thread will ever top the Merzcar
>Along with the standard edition, there was a special edition with the regular CD, cloth, T-shirt and can of mushrooms label "Noiserooms", packaged in a box and limited to 50 numbered copies. Most infamous was the Merzcar. Label owner Anders had a rundown Mercedes-Benz 230 that he rarely drove, and the police told him to move it or else it would be towed. So he rigged the CD player to play the label's newest release, Merzbow's Noisembryo, and made it impossible to turn off or remove. He then put the car up for sale as a limited edition of one.
Dammit, I had the same idea. Oh well, we can both do it.
Also load a virus on there just for shits
i haven't stopped laughing since this was posted
am i going to die
the shape of music to come
10.0 best new format
i made it w/o reactions and posted it on tumblr
adding the reactions is /v/tier
pack it up boys this nigger just ruined it
if it was organized a little better it would better than mine but i cant follow it
it didnt get any notes which is understandable because it was hard to read on there and it's not as funny reading it after it happened
ehh /mu/ (as did I) didnt give a fuck about tumblr but after 2011 is when it went to shit, or sometime before that i dont remember
this is actually a killer gym equipment idea
you do pushups and in the low position get to listen to a) music that pumps you up and makes you want to do few reps more or b) shitty indie that makes you want to lift your body the hell away from the contraption
I never said I made it faggot ;^)

Who the fuck keeps posting things here?
Are there really people who like to pretend they're from 4chan?
Do 4chan users really take satisfaction in selling out their website and their culture for some cheap link karma?
I'm ordering 4 of these and creating a new torture device
What about a singing card loaded with your album?
Mark my words, the μbox will take the music industry by storm
Is that animal abuse? I'm pretty sure that's animal abuse.
I just want the cupcake to be in the best thread /mu/ will see in a very, very long time.
