So in September 2013 Vienna Teng released a new album (you can listen to it for free on Bandcamp
, and if you’re not familiar already I seriously cannot recommend it strongly enough), and I and a few of my friends went absolutely bananas over it. I at some point happened to noticed the section of my friend group that was collectively losing their shit over this album and the section of my friend group who were vidders intersected nicely, and there was quite a lot of discussion of vidding various tracks on twitter, which led me to An Idea.
I was really enjoying the album as a whole, which doesn't often happen to me, and I thought it would be cool if we could get enough people together who each wanted to vid one of the tracks and put together sort of a vid album.
I threw the idea out to a few people, and their response was gratifyingly enthusiastic. :D We managed to get everyone a song they were happy with and inspired by, I think, though we didn't *quite* manage to cover all 11 tracks without some doubling up, though we did get there! :D
We agreed pretty quickly that we'd much rather have it be across a range of fandoms, as that would make it more diverse. Plus, I think we'd have struggled to pick one common fandom!
Basically I am extremely lucky in knowing some very talented people, and we’d like to present our vid album.Level Up

ETA: So, some of us went to Nine Worlds Geekfest in August 2014 and wound up talking to the Daily Dot about the Project and why we think Vienna Teng is so popular with vidders, and they wrote a lovely article!
Which Vienna Teng then linked to on her Facebook and Twitter! So that was pretty cool. :DThe Aims Vid Project (the "Project") has been created with material derived from Aims, a studio album recorded by Vienna Teng and released on 24 September 2013 (the "Original Work") under a Creative Commons Licence CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike) (the "Licence").
