Morph 1 is just wrapping up http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/content/july-morph-1-recording-challenge and Morph 2 (lyrics only) http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/content/july-morph-2-lyric-challenge is underway so I am opening up another songwriting/recording Morph for anyone who is interested in playing, or playing again. Still plenty of time (as I write this about a FAWM-and-a-half) left in 5090. Will shorten or lengthen depending on level of interest.
For those of you unfamiliar with the challenge, it goes like this:
Songwriter One posts a link in this thread to a seed song recording from the current 50/90 and includes in the song posting (or relays supplemental information to Songwriter Two on their soundboard) musical information such as bpm, time signature, lyrics chords in the note that it is Songwriter Two's turn.
Songwriter Two listens to Songwriter One's song and changes approximately 50 percent of the song. Could be all different music with identical lyrics. Could be the exact same music with all different lyrics. To me the same music means using the same chords, melody, tempo, meter, and key. I suggest that use of the same instruments or melody in the exact octave is not required to keep music the same. Or, my favorite, it could be changes to both music and lyrics keeping approximately 50 percent. Ideally each succeeding song is written in five days or less. Songwriter Two posts the song with a tag #morph1 and link in this thread. Songwriter Two sends a note to Songwriter Three with music information and that it is their turn.
Songwriter Three only listens to Songwriter Two's song and does NOT listen to Songwriter One's song. Songwriter Three changes 50 percent of Songwriter Two's song, posts it and contacts songwriter Four.
Songwriter Four (and succeeding songwriters) only listens to the prior songwriter's (in this case Songwriter Three) song in the chain and does NOT listen to any other previous songs in the chain, changes 50 percent of the prior song, posts it and contacts the next songwriter in the chain, and so on......
Typically at some point late in the game the seed songwriter can rejoin to finish the morph.
