i just did stage 1 of the hsfanmusic fix-up. with our good friends over at skaianetradio now in control of the skaia.net domain, we’re now shifting this blog to be hsfanmusic.skaia.net (check it out right now! hehe)
the next step will happen after i have a chance to tweak the webpages, since i’ve been wanting to update them for a while. i’m leaving for a week long trip and plan to upload the past website when i get back to hold you all over in the meantime.
sorry for taking so long to cover this problem, busy times and also some relaxation from the uni term on my part has delayed my fixing this.
A Blog run by Fans of the Homestuck Music Team turned 2 today!
Wow, I can’t believe it’s been two years since I made the suggestion to start a blog to showcase some of the finest fan-music albums and projects we have to offer. Stay tuned, as there’s a lot more we have planned in the works in terms of expanding hsfanmusic.
I’m aware that skaia.net is down - AndrewNeo’s had the url for 4 years but it’s ended now (what a run!) I’ll look for alternative hosting solutions soon…
hsanimeproject said: Hey guys! Not sure if it's entirely your thing, but we are starting to audition for composers in our group, and we're wondering if you could spare a mention of that to help us spread the word! If not, that's totally cool too~ Thanks for reading, and have a nice day!
For sure! hsfanmusic is all about the fandom’s content. Be sure to check out this project if you’re interested in flexing your composition muscle!
We’re all about the bountiful Homestuck music scene. That’s why all of the music is released under creative commons, to be used in other projects. If you let us know of any of the fan music being used in your projects, let us know with an ask. We’ll try to pass your project onto the original composer, so they can see their work being used in your content. c:
LOFAM 3 LIVE Commentary: Mon @ 6PM (EST)
On Monday, Dec. 23rd @ 6PM (EST), we’ll be doing a LOFAM 3 Commentary/Playthrough! Before each song, we’ll be commentating it and talk about it, as well as some general discussion about the album in general! If you’ve ever wanted to hear about the music and everything it takes to do it, then you definitely don’t want to miss this!
In the meantime, you can listen to the radio @ http://skaianet.net/radio!
If you guys have any questions, please feel free to ask! We’ll also be answering questions during the Commentary as well.
This will be happening in 8 hours! We’d love for you to join us. I’ll be talking with Kyle about the album, Avinoch will be around hopefully in the chat, and we’re hoping Lune will be able to pop in and talk about the art!
Where to from here?
There’s not gonna be talks of Lofam 4 until much later into next year, mostly due to the Lofam team being intensely burnt out trying to get this fantastic album to you. As such, this blog will likely become quiet for a while. If you’ve got nothing better to do, and want to support Homestuck musicians and fan musicians alike, why not try checking out Casual Sunday? Most of the artists have been featured in either Homestuck albums proper or the fan albums, and I believe their first album is well worth a purchase.
Apart from that, try and keep your eyes and ears keen, looking out for songs you might want to see on Lofam 4. (We suggest keeping a personal list called “HOMESTUCK FAN SONGS I LIKE AND THINK WOULD BE GOOD FOR THAT NEXT INSTALMENT OF THAT COMPILATION ALBUM THINGY”.) We’ll be opening it up to you all again to decide, utilising an email system this time, due to some issues we had with Tumblr’s ask system. Again, we’ll let you know when this is open for you all to submit, but note it won’t be for a while.
Feel free to send us messages if you have any queries or concerns about Lofam, or fan music in general. Happy holidays, and happy listening too!

Join us at 6PM (EST) For a LOFAM 3 Playthrough!
A lot of you guys are starting break today - so why not get it started with some incredibly music from the new LOFAM 3 album? The music in it is amazing, and if you haven’t heard it yet then you definitely don’t want to miss out!
In the meantime, you can listen to the radio by going to skaianet.net/radio.
And if you haven’t already done so, download the entire LOFAM 3 album, free, by going to hsfanmusic.skaia.net! Be sure to check out the other great albums they have too!
This is happening right now, come and say hi!

That’s right, it’s finally here! Go on to the website and get all 63 of these awesome tracks! There’s songs here from a bunch of artists, so there’s plenty to please!
Please note that we had some trouble and so you’ll need to download fixed versions of the commentary booklet and “sord….” from the website. We apologise for this inconvenience.
We’re also going to be having a stream on Skaianet Radio of the songs on Friday afternoon, but more info for that will be out soon. Enjoy!
Here’s a reblog for all you folks just waking up.
Blog dedicated to make Homestuck’s Fan Musicians’ unofficial album Land of Fans and Music 3 incredibly more Tumblr friendly.
It’s… It’s done!!!
I can sleep now!
Thanks merrytasunae (veritasunae), avinoch and THE WHOLE UNNOFFICIAL MUSIC AND ART TEAM (probably reachable at hsmusicfansblogthing) for yet another eargasmer compilation of unearthly accords, strings, bits and voices.
No, thank you! Lovely to see the album up on tumblr again for everyone to hear easily.
Come by Skaianet Radio, we’re about to start listening to the whole album from start to finish!
