Project Trinity: Christian Rock MEP

Postby Sierra Lorna » Fri Feb 24, 2006 7:16 pm

Project Goal and Theme:
This is a Multi-Editor project which uses entirely Christian Rock music. Even though Christian rock is beginning to become more popular today, it’s not heard as often as mainstream rock. Our major goal for this project is to let this music be heard more by making a really enjoyable AMV project to it.

Silver_moon and I will be coordinating this project. Silver_moon will be in charge of most of the encoding, while I'll be in charge of motion graphics and titles in the project. We'll jointly decide on things like the rules of this project.

We've been considering doing this project for a while, but Osakaisthebomb's post about his own MEP idea resparked our interest. He's also running his own Christian music MEP. Be sure to check it out too, as he is still searching for more editors to join!

**Current Status:**
-Not accepting any more sign-ups
-Sent out test version of the final MEP. Waiting for suggestions for final touch-ups.
-Working on finishing up the final version.

I would guess the Evanescence stipulation would also apply to Celldweller, since he's cut ties with the Christian music industry? On the other hand, people more strongly associate him with being a Christian music artist because of his previous projects (Circle Of Dust, Argyle Park, AP2, Brainchild, etc.), which were released either through R.E.X. Music or Tooth & Nail or enjoyed various independent releases (although some of those were recently rereleased by Flaming Fish, another Christian label).

In any case, the concept is interesting. Unfortunately, considering all the procrastinating I did last year for VG3 and the Nightwish project, I don't want to jump into something unless I know I can work on it without losing motivation.

Exactly what is the limit on hard here? Most of what I'd probably want to use (aside from those I already have slated for projects) are largely Electronic Rock or Industrial music (like from Flaming Fish or ChristianIndustrial.net); the lyrics are also more on the ambiguous and sometimes ascerbic side, which wouldn't really work if the aim here is something uplifting and inspirational.

Cool idea. Added you to the list. :wink:

I haven't heard too much about Celldweller, but if he's done records with Christian record labels like Tooth & Nail, anything from those records would be great. Be if he has cut ties with his latest music, it's probably best to say that it wouldn't be considered Christian music anymore.

Electronic and Industrial rock is great, if that's what you want to use. I'd still consider that rock for sure. And a lot of Christian music can be fairly ambigious, so we're not going to be too picky on that either. As long as it is at least vaguely Christian-ish, and is by a Christian artist, it's fine.

i'd love to join too. That main two songs i have in mind are:

"Prayer" by Disturbed (Disturbed isn't really a christian rock group but when they wrote this particular song they meant it to have many religious conetations)
and
"Grace Like Rain" by Todd Agnew

I havn't decided on anime sources but i'll be thinking about it.
Prodigi
is the conductor.

Interesting :-o I've had an idea for 'Dandelions' by Five Iron Frenzy for a while... Not sure if I'll join yet or not.

One thing I would like to point out though is that, just because a band is on Tooth & Nail, it doesn't mean they are a Christian band. They're not REALLY technically a "Christian record label". They just happen to sign a good number of Christian rock acts. I used to be close associates with the guys who founded the label and they've never considered themselves a Christian record label, and they really don't like to be pigeonholed as such. They ARE Christians themselves, but their record label is not necessarilly their ministry. One of the most well known examples of a band in this position would be MxPx. They released 4 albums on Tooth & Nail, and a few of their earliest songs did talk about Christian themes here and there, but they also never considered themselves a Christian band. But due to the assumption about the record label and the lyrics, they were thusly lumped into the Christian rock scene. So when they decided to sign to A&M Records (a secular label), there was quite a huge controversy, and many Christians slandered them and questioned their faith. But they never said they were a Christian band to begin with.

Anyways. Doesn't really have TOO much relavence to the project, other than to say, Tooth & Nail band != Christian band.

Alrighty, before anyone else beats me to it :P

Anime: Haibane Renmei

Music: "Only Hope" by Switchfoot

Length: most likely 1 minute

I've got flashes of images in my mind but no real direction yet as to where to take it. I'm not 100% certain about Haibane Renmei either but as it is, it's the first that came to mind when I looked at my rather limited collection of (good quality) Christian rock music... I think I have more of the non-rock stuff :P And I've always wanted to do a Haibane Renmei video since like forever, so I think this is as good an opportunity as any.

So yeah, sign me up :D

A question though... we may be going for Christian music and all, but theme wise, are we aiming for something that at least exhibits Christian faith? I know I myself ain't going to be making a video that is overly "preachy" but nonetheless is very Christian in nature.

That's really interesting. I didn't know that. I always thought Tooth & Nail considered themselves a Christian record label.

It would be great to have you on the project, by the way, so please do consider it some more. :wink:

No, pretty much all we're doing is using Christian music. It would be great if you could exhibit your faith too, but I understand that it's difficult to do, considering that we're working with anime, which isn't usually Christian-based at all. So don't worry about it too much.

Infinity Squared and Prodigi: added you both to the track list. Welcome to the project. :)

Aye, theme-wise, much of the music I'd pick probably wouldn't fit with many of the other main artists that would likely go into the project. Heck, with Steve Taylor, who co-wrote material on and produced three of the Newsboys' albums, you'd probably have to be somewhat picky on what songs to use as he ruffled the industry's feathers with a couple - if not more - of his albums back in the 80s. I just don't see songs with titles like "I Blew Up The Clinic Real Good" mixing well with songs by Skillet or Pillar, et al. My problem is that much of the Christian music I like and listen to routinely expresses that same kind of criticism or satire (although not necessarily to that extreme).


A while after I typed that top paragraph...
I have made a selection, though. And no, it's not any of the darker bands/material I was talking about earlier.

Song: "Place In This World" by Michael W. Smith
Anime: RahXephon
Length: probably about 1 minute
Serious/Drama

On a side-note: for some reason, the CD doesn't have the lyrics in its booklet; thank goodness I remembered my dad also has a 15- or 16-year-old cassette of the album which does include the lyrics. Odd.

You said anime twice and arist once... but not a definite rule, right? Then I'll try... :D

Song: Switchfoot - Meant to Live
Length: estimated 1:00 or so
Category: drama
Anime: Chrono Crusade

I think the song fits really well and I can make it good, and I don't know any other Christian bands, so I hope that's fine... =D
