THE PLAYLIST IS MADE UP OF PARTIAL TUNES, SUBMITTED BY VARIOUS ARTISTS. THESE TUNES WILL BE PASSED FROM ARTIST TO ARTIST, EMPLOYING THE SAME METHODOLOGY ASSOCIATED WITH CHAIN LETTERS. ALONG THE SAME LINES, THE TUNES ARE FORWARDED BY EACH ARTIST TO SEVERAL MORE, AND THEY, IN TURN, DO THE SAME.
SO KEEP IN MIND, WHEN LISTENING TO THEM, THESE TUNES ARE FAR FROM COMPLETE; THEY ARE JUST THE BARE BONES OF TUNES TO COME!
I have another project idea that could be off and running almost immediately, which involves permutation. If I say chain tunes it sort of explains the whole process in one go. A lot of additional permutations could be added, increasing the complexity of the creative process, but I was thinking of developing a few prototypes first, keeping things at the level of the basic chain letter idea. We lay down a bunch of rhythm tracks, in different genre styles (progressive jazz/funk/latin/thrash/techno/you name it) those files are forwarded randomly to half-a-dozen or more artists, depending on how many are involved. each of those artists complete their contribution and randomly forward it to another 6, and so on; the whole thing going viral.
There are not enough members yet for these chain tunes to go viral, but it's still possible to run the prototypes in preparation for when there are enough members, say, starting with one track, send it to two artists, who send it to four artists, who send it to 8, 16, 32, and so on, doing several of these tunes, randomizing the order of artists on each, and starting with a variety of rhythm tracks.
I will add a lot more detail to this idea, but that's the concept in brief: CHAIN TUNES
This idea would be extended to other art forms, and I have ideas on how to do that, which would morph together, say, for instance, an animated movie, or a novel/script, seamlessly, which accounts for the changes in animation or literary style.
Probably the project concept that intrigues me most, because it's open to so many permutations and so much experimentation; original music and some amazing songwriting/performing teams could develop out of it--unsigned super groups
So if anyone has rhythm tracks ready to go, or want to put some together, get them to me, so we can get this project started; I have a few I will add to the pot, and for anyone who wants to be part of this project let me by clicking and commenting. For all of these projects I will need to have your email addresses, so if I haven't got them yet, please get them to me. And let me know if you are not on the Pangaea's People roster at Reverbnation so I can add; just so I can keep things organized, and find all your other music pages
If you definitely have time for this, and you are the sort that gets things done, let me know directly by attaching a comment here, or messaging me somehow. For the percussion track, I'm thinking in terms of combining a real drum kit track with sampled, with stops, breaks, changes in tempo, etc. incorporated through a track that's several minutes long, so, to start off with, who plays a real drum kit and who is a master at creating a drum track digitally. When laying down the basslines, again I'm thinking in terms of mixing real and digitally produced basslines, and so on! So if we can get a real drum track down, and this is sent back to me, I can forward it to six artists to add the next layer.
For the Chain Tunes project please contact me at this address firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know if you want to be part of the project, and then send any completed files to me and I will distribute them; we need percussion tracks to get things started. Needs to be done in an organized fashion at this stage, so completed files need to be returned to me so I can forward them on. Once enough people are involved, it will be down to individuals to forward them on to six people, but there has to be a starting point at this stage to ensure that the project is kickstarted, and so I can keep a check on whether things are progressing, so send all files to me :) As well as keeping a check on the progress, I want to keep a record of who contributes what to which tune; finished tunes should be returned to me, and I will post them on a Reverbnations page under the collective name of THE CHAIN TUNES GANG (hope that sounds good to everyone). The individual artists involved in each tune could also post the tunes on their own pages. I've set up an email address specifically for this project, so can you send all files, and communicate via this address. I will set up a youtube page later in case anyone is interested in creating videos to go with the tunes.
