does anyone want to play musical hot potato? It's easy, anyone can
participate, all you need is the ability to build on what others have
done! Basically we (my tight knit group here in L.A.) play this game
all the time with interesting output. It's the ultimate collaborative
work of art. Anything goes. Here's how it works...
1. the moderator (for the first round it will be me) starts the song
with an idea or riff.
2. then the moderator passes it on to the next musician.
3. they edit and build progressions and flavor.
4. they pass it back to the moderator which in-turn forwards it to the
next participant. and so on.
no one revisits the mix, once it's left their studio it's up to the
next musician to realize the song. Only 10 musicians can be in the mix.
In my experience any more than 10 spoils the mix, too much input. the
moderator controls the musician line up... so when the participants are
done with their mix it's sent back to the moderator which then sends it
to the next participant. this is just the control mechanism to assure
that the mix remains pure. and so on. For legal purposes... no one
retains copyright or publishing rights over the mix... it is considered
public domain. This is purely for the art of music and not for personal
So if anyone is interested let me know and I'll get the ball rolling.
We need 10 or less and more than 5 musicians to make this work.
