    Duet = Two People.
    Trio = Three People.
    Quartet = Four People.

    | KHV Chorus Rules&General Information | In-Progress/Completed Choruses | KHV Chorus Voting and Suggestions | KHV Chorus Applications |

    Hey there, and welcome to KHV Chorus' Duet Roulette project! As you all know by now, we have a really, really, really long pending list and we can't open up suggestions again until all of the songs are done. The purpose of this project is to help up us variety to the chorus as well as power through that list so we can get a chance at some other songs and keep the chorus alive and active!

    WHAT IS THIS?

    Duet Roulette is a project in which you can sign up to sing a duet, trio or quartet with other KHV members! Maybe you'll make a new friend, hm? All you have to do is post in this thread after filling out the small form at the bottom. As usual, I'll be composing the video and mixing the vocals for you, so all you have to do is send in your parts to chorus@kh-vids.net. The finished product will be uploaded to our Youtube and posted on KHV.

    The songs for these duets/trios/quartets will be pulled from our Pending list, helping us get through it faster. Songs that are done in a duet/trio/quartet can be re-suggested for our full chorus (everyone) when suggestions are opened up. (Which will also eliminate songs that no one really wants to do and are thus never re-sugessted, lolol.)

    These projects will be complied in between our full chorus songs. For example, during our voting breaks, or when I'm receiving help with one of the full choruses and have more time. It's like a KHV Chorus spin off that'll ultimately bring us down to a more personal level while still maintaining the main idea.

    HOW DOES IT WORK?

    Our pending list can be found here.

    When you sign up, you will be given a number and put on the 'participants' list. When a new project is going to happen, I will randomly pull a song from Voting and Suggestions (they are numbered as well), as well as 2-4 participants from the list. The purpose of the randomization is to introduce you to new people, make sure every song gets a fair chance as well as everyone getting a fair chance to participate without the awkward...'Friends chose friends everyone else is left out' thing happening.

    I will PM the members randomly chosen and 'invite' them to participate in the project. This is so that if you're busy, having technical problems or out of town/etc, I can chose someone else before posting the casting thread and revealing who everyone will be singing with and what song they got. Also, these things are all for fun, so please try not get all self-conscious, we all love you and no one is judging you. If the song is in another language, I will translate it if requested (by anyone in the singing group). If you just absolutely cannot do the song, you can let me know privately, but please stay open minded. The potential challenge is part of the fun!

    I am offering my services as a permanent 'fill-in', which means that if someone drops out after a bit of time has passed, instead of redrawing and giving someone a total disadvantage with time, I'll fill in for the drop out regardless of the song. If you would like to be a permanent fill-in as well, you may state so in your form.

    After we get some participants (lol no one signs up and Jayn cries), I will cast for an example mini-chorus to be worked on/deadline set after You'll Be In My Heart is over. Once you guys see how it works, I'm sure your confusion will dissipate, like when Still Alive was first posted.

    Here is an example of what the finished product of a duet would look like. You'll see how the lines will be split and chosen when we do our first song.

    RULES!

    ● If you KNOW you're going to be too busy to record, let me know so I can replace you as soon as possible. Don't worry about letting me down and don't force yourself to sing a song you're terribly uncomfortably with. We understand. Just give me a fair amount of time to work around it.

    ● Anyone can join, even those not involved in the main chorus.

    ● Please do not complain about who you are paired with, or how well the turn-out is (vocal-wise). This entire chorus is just a way to bring us closer together. If you bring your negativity into it, you will ruin everything and make me cry and quit at everything. If you ABSOLUTELY cannot sing with someone else without starting conflict, please let me know privately when you post your information! <:

    ● Most main KHV Chorus recording and picture rules apply. Please read them and ask me if you have any questions. PLEASE ASK ME YOUR QUESTIONS IN THIS THREAD SO THAT IF ANYONE HAS THE SAME QUESTION, THEY CAN SEE THE ANSWER.

    This idea rocks.

    Participating for: (Duets, trios, quartets, or all of them?) All!
    Absolutely Cannot Sing: (Any genres/languages/tempos/ranges that you won't be able to do.) Rap. I have trouble doing vocal 'runs' (melismatic singing), so r'n'b is a bit difficult for me. My voice pretty much stops at a D3 (and sounds pretty bad there), so I have to rearrange lot of songs sung by men.
    Anything Else: I'd love to do Broadway stuff, or rock, but anything goes. I can hit a C6 on a extremely good day, but it usually takes a few tries. Willing to be a fill in.

    Nice idea here, wanna see how the first one goes over

    Participating For: Anything and Everything. The harder the better.
    Absolutely Cannot Sing: Anything and Everything. But damn if I don't give it one hell of a try. I haven't met a song I can't really do yet, the quality can vary, but i'll learn if I can't do some songs soon enough.
    Anything Else: I'll be a stand in if need be, I have free time so I'll try my best to help.

    This shall be fun, a great way to bring us more and more together!

    Participating for: All of them, my friends. All of them. =)

    Absolutely Cannot Sing: Gimme everything ya got dere, I can sing everything. I am like, multitasking...-able. :lolface:
    ...Actually, Voices too thin (I think that's how you call them?) I can't sing. :x

    Anything Else: DON'T MIND MY AWFUL VOICE. And sometimes I might delay to give the lines because the school calls or... well, personal problems which I have. Oh yeah, if I'm in something, it's hard for me to give up.~

    To Dear Jayn: Same pic as the Thriller chorus (Sleeping Ventus). If someone can't do the song and you're too busy, call me to replace them. Don't overload, take a break if needed. ;]

    Also, I am the first derp to ask something! Didn't get the thing about numbers. My bad English is bad. :V

    Just wondering really, but when does this Side project upgrade from participation stage to actively singing stage?
    I'm excited to get a song together.
    Hell, if it's only at max 4 voices I'd be willing to help with the mixing of them together if that speeds things up.

    The first 'roulette' thing will be after You'll Be In My Heart. Choruses will be complied in-between main songs. <:


    Not so much for my sake, because I'm a rabid multi-tasker, but for participants of the main choruses and whatever little projects we have going on. There are enough drop-outs for the main chorus songs, so I won't run both projects directly at the same time considering that would increase the likelyhood of someone dropping out of both or feeling pressed between one or the other. Thus, the reason Duet Roulette is classified as a side-project.

    Oh what fun. I hope I can do this. >w>

    Participating for: All please <3~
    Absolutely Cannot Sing: Foreign languages I suppose but I'm willing to learn based on the song. I cannot hit high notes. But I'll do my best. Would prefer not to sing anything passed the 90s, early 00... if possible.
    Anything Else: Nothing that comes to mind really.

    Yay. <3

    So, we have enough people to start this. As promised, I'll start compiling the first chorus now since You'll Be In My Heart is over. It will be a quartet. I'll be sending out the invitations shortly.

    Also, just a note, your 'can't sing' list will always be taken into consideration. Meaning if you say you can't do rap, it's a rap song, and your number is pulled, I'll disregard it and randomly choose someone else.

    This is just a reminder.~
