“The best measurements can’t be quantified. When one song takes root in the countless people who memorize it. When a chorus lifts a roomful of strangers up into a shared emotion. The soundtrack to a first kiss that’s able to stop lovers in their tracks decades later. The value of those songs lies in us.”
-- from Uproot (Travels in 21st Century Music and Digital Culture) by Jace Clayton (aka DJ Rupture), page 254
@Riley Sort of like writing stories: learn from those who write -- look at structure, dialogue, character --
but then toss it all out into the yard when you get down to the stories you wanna write.
With music/song writing, I often feel as if my ear is leading me towards a safe zone, instead of guiding me to an experimental spot. I have to tug against my best intentions.
Two months ago, a few of us music-makers on Mastodon released these 4 songs, each of which is the result of a random collaboration. You can listen, download, and hopefully enjoy!
Much 💙 to you all today because 💙 is not only for people in committed relationships. I hope you all have some lovely tunes to listen to today.
I hope you all have a wonderful day with great music, whether you're listening or working on something!
I'm gonna put my feelers out for a vocalist again!
I'm not really concerned about style/skill, I kinda just wanna make ridiculous/and/or/nice music with someone. I've been sampling evangelical preachers as vocalists ( https://baconhorse.bandcamp.com/ )
but I really miss fun/batshit musical collaboration.
Lemme know if you wanna be in a cyberband :)

Is sending some choir directors and similar types a 'sneak preview' of a piece of mine that is being premièred on 18th Feb a) excellent networking or b) incredibly bad form? I have no idea how the etiquette works, here.
anyone wanna collaborate musically?
I've been making this trash music:
https://baconhorse.bandcamp.comusing garageband and audacity, and sampling evangelical preachers as vocalists. But I think it might be fun to collaborate with a singer/musician online.
I got pretty excited the other week playing drums for some people, but had to pull out because I'm too broke to commit to weekly rehearsals :(
So lemme know if you wanna be in a CYBERBAND.
