Separate tracks vs. one long mp3 is a problem we never had a good answer for. POBP is more song oriented than Mink Stolen was and could be thought of as a concept album rather than an extended work. But in order to segue between narration and a song we almost have to use one track in some cases at least, one idea I have is morphing the suspension at the end of Cue 1 into the intro of the POBP song
If the songs are tracked individually they can have a life of their own, be promoted, maybe even get some media attention separate from the work as a whole?
And what about upload limits, do we have one here on IRD? Even mp3’s can get real big.
I guess we don’t have to commit to a format yet, there’s a lot of work ahead and the direction we take may help determine the format. I don’t want to discourage any contributions so if anyone has material to submit we may have to jump around but going through the whole thing in sequence does seem to offer some advantages as far as continuity and development of themes.
