This week, I'm attempting to organize the writing of a novel, crowd-sourced song. I'm asking all of you creative types out there to contribute your talent to this project.
Here's the idea: by the end of the week, I want to post a MP3 or video of myself singing and playing a brand new song that we wrote together. How will we do this? I'm glad you asked.
First off, I want this song to be ephemeral. It should be relevant to what's going on in the Sci-Fi/Nerd world right now. This song might not mean anything in a few weeks, but that's part of the fun. Here's how I think things should go this week:
- Go to your favorite Sci-Fi/Nerd/Technology Blogs right now. Try to find some sort of interesting meme that will make good fodder for a song.
- After we decide on a good topic, I'll come up with a melody and some lyrics for the chorus section of the song.
- I'll then ask all of you to contribute lyrics to the verses and break of the song.
- Depending on how musical/techie some of you are, I may ask for some beats or other musical devices.
- By the end of the week, I'll post an MP3 or video of myself playing and singing the finished results.
This should be fun,
