Ever fancied a collabo with Kill Paris? Well now’s your chance…
Last week the Denver-based funk aficionado took to his Facebook and put forward the idea of crowdsourcing as many singers and musicians as possible for a new tune.
The suggestion was received incredibly well. So he’s rolling with it. On Friday night he posted the rules and deadline… But hurry, if you want to take part in this community-based creation you’ve got until Friday September 4.
Hey Friends! Here’s the deal for the crowdsourcing project… the key is A minor, and the BPM is 110. Send me audio…
Whether you’re a tambourine badman, a high grade saxophonist or sport dulcet vocal tones, this is a really exciting opportunity to contribute to and work with a man who is dedicated to the spirit of free music and has given away almost all of his repertoire. As long as it’s in the key of A minor at 110BPM and submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 4, he wants to hear from you.
We’re interested to hear the results. Here are three other examples of really cool crowdsourced creativity…
Savant – Cult Collab
Last year Savant engaged with his passionate community for clips and samples; he ended up with over 1000 to create this madcap slab of collaborative bass science. Heavy.
Asa – I Made This For You
Part of his stunning Heartbreak EP last year, Bristol beatsmith asked for as many of his fans to record them saying “I made this for you” then weaved the many voices over a dreamy, slo-mo two-step groove. Beautiful.
Noisia – Breezeblock
Going way way way back before the words crowd and sourced were ever amalgamated or social media was a thing, Noisia took to Mary Ann Hobbs groundbreaking Breezeblock show and asked listeners to contribute a noise or sample to build a track around. They picked the sound of a hearty apple chomp. Wholesome.
