    Hey Loopers and Loopettes!

    I just got an idea. It's a bit of an odd one but I think that it could be fun to try.

    I was looking after the kids the other day and we were doing the thing with a piece of paper when you fold it in 3 and then 3 different people draw their own bit of the paper. So that in the end the head of the person drawn might be a cowboy the middle part might be a human body with alien arms and the legs might be of a squid. You can get some pretty amusing results.

    So I just thought why not do that with a track? Just for laughs and see what we can come up with. Some of you probably think this is a pretty stupid idea (and frankly so do I) but why not have a laugh :)

    So, we set the tempo so that everyone is on the same tempo, then someone does the drums, someone the bassline, melody etc.

    Let me know if you'd like to have a go!

    /Stalju (probably gonna be called the crazy one after this!)

    Wow, didn't expect anyone to be interested. Just a long shot. But send me a mail with your e-mail and/or msn so we can get started. You can do group chats on MSN so that would be good if you had.

    Hell, I'm in. One suggestion, can we also know how many measures, and the organization of the measure. For example:

    Intro 4 measures
    Verse 16 measures
    Verse 16 measures
    Chorus 12 measures
    etc

    its funny that you stumbled on this, it is a game that the Surrealist(dada) artists of Paris played in the '40's as a parlor game...they called it The Exquisite Corpse

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exquisite_corpse

    Great idea to apply it to music though, ill be very interested to hear what you all come up with!

    Hello Everyone!

    I think it's time we got this here started! Iv'e been thinking about how to do this but I'm not sure to be honest.
    Should we do it like:
    ChrissG (for example) starts out with the first bars, sends it to someone and that person just builds the next bars.

    Or like:
    ChrissG starts with the bassline sends that to JahKnow who puts down the beat and so on.

    And I think we should decide the measures, tempo and genre.
    But It's not just up to me so please let me know what you guys think.

    Cheers,
    Stalju

    I think it would be good if everyone does a part, bassline,drums. strings, melody, fx,pads,guitar......etc,whatever you're after !

    I can give you a nice bassline if the tempo is right (120-140bpm)

    Sounds fun man!

    Right, post a reply and let me know what element and tempo you would like. And possibly post the measures we should use.

    SORRY FOR DOUBLE POST!!!
    Did we already choose a genre??
    And if I'm gonna make the bassline, am I allowed to hear the rest of the track first??
    If not, we could get something that would sound REAL funny
    (maybe even bad...) But in the game you played with the kids you are not allowed to see the other drawings before you draw your piece so how are we gonna do this???

    (I'm no native speaker of English and I usually don't make such long posts lol.)

    @ 9Rihter: 130bpm is cool we can make something house-style...
    @ yeshintae: I think Stalju should decide this but it's alright with me! What you wanna do?

    Anyone are welcome to be a part of this. I still don't know what measures, element etc people would prefer.
    So if you could write that and let me know that would be great!
