> Need MIDI Help
> I'm a performance artist looking to hire someone to help me make a few
> midi's. I will be making an "art album" which is an homage to the
> Jackson 5 Christmas album. There are 11 songs on the original album
> and I would like to remake anywhere from 3-11 of the tracks, depending
> on the availability of the person I hire.
> A description of the work to be done follows. It should be noted that
> I am on a very tight timeline with this project. The album will be
> released at my performance on December 10, so I will need to make a
> solid, feasible plan with the consultant and there will be no room for
> postponing... But it should be fun!
> So here is what I need... I need to find a person who can take a few
> preexisting songs (preferably working from MP3s) that have vocal
> tracks and create midi files sans vocals. This isn't just a matter of
> splitting a vocal track from instrumentals, as I prefer the
> instrumentals to be converted or redone as synthy/organy recordings.
> Here is a good sample of what I'm talking about:
> http://www.lsdudes.com/depressing-midi/Everybody_Hurts.mid
> In some cases, I'll try to restore the background vocals to the track,
> so if the person has the ability to do that up front, that's great.
> Ultimately, I will just ask for delivery of the MIDI files and I will
> do the final editing, with my own vocal tracks.
> It goes without saying that this person will be compensated for their
> work (admittedly, I'm on a limited budget, though), and that they will
> be fully credited for their contributions to the album. Incidentally,
> I will be performing a live medley from the album at Galapagos Art
> Space, in Brooklyn, on December 10, in a group event that will also be
> a release party for the album.
> If you know how to do this and are interested in collaborating on a
> fun project, please email <mo@marisaolson.com> with details on your
> experience, your rate for the project, and details on your
> availability to work within this timeline.
> Thanks so much and please feel free to send any questions.
