You could almost hear the whips crack, as a man identified only as Porpoise sent a message out via skype to a pair of musicians in his employ. "How's the collab song coming along? Do you feel like any input/inspiration would help?" Porpoise demanded. "Or would you like to share some thoughts about it?" The message comes a mere 5 months after he paid over $750 to charity at GermanCon to have a song collab made.
"It'll happen, just give me a bit more time" begged Deceased Gravestone, one of the musicians who agreed to produce the track. He and ShadowBox, have
"I can't believe he expects to see progress in such a short amount of time" said Gravestone, a world-renowned classical symphony composer who has only had enough time to eat, sleep, play video games, travel to America for an anime convention and compose 8 other songs, since he accepted the charity commission.
"He has been no help at all!" complains singer ShadowBox, having only been provided with a full-story-premise for themes, sample lyrics, suggestions for musical qualities, cover art designs, stylistic examples, frequent reminders, and a mere half a year of working time by the donor.
"I would never rush along a song before its time," asserts Gravestone, having recently published a song as an homage to a video game that had been released only 3 weeks prior. "Every song I make is a masterpiece that requires months, even years of planning to properly execute. How dare he get impatient with me after a mere 20 weeks?"
Porpoise is clearly asking the duo to work outside of their elements, asking them to make a song with "lot's of synth", a musical device that Deceased Gravestone and ShadowBox have definitely never used before,
"When we assured the high bidder that the song could be about whatever they wanted, repeatedly, I didn't know they actually would!" said Gravestone. "How could I see that coming?"
At press time the duo were slaving away on the 670 Euro song, by playing Five Nights at Freddy's on their computers.
