Just finished my bit in the Acoustic Lo-Fi corpse and this zany idea struck me that I have not seen here before. So I thought I would share. How about if we have a variation on the Exquisite Corpse (where the first writer writes a minute and sends the last ten seconds to the next writer, etc.) where we build up to the first ten seconds of what will be the next corpse segment? So the last shall be first and the first shall be last. In other words, the first songwriter who records their full minute and sends their first ten seconds or so to the next on the list songwriter will be the last one in the stitched together recording. The second songwriter on the list will write a minute piece to lead up to that first 10 seconds provided by the first songwriter, and be fourth in the recording, etc.
Looking for volunteers to sign up (pick an open spot if you like) and/or to stitch. I'm hoping there will be enough interest that I can happily sit on the sidelines and listen to the end result, but am willing to play any of these roles if need be to fill out the lineup card. Since the last shall be first I suggest trying this with five songwriters.
Rules otherwise shamelessly plagiarized and slightly edited from the parallel Acoustic Lo-Fi Corpse thread hosted by @metalfoot.
1. Roughly a minute or so of music, acoustic in style, preferably one vocal and one acoustic instrument, production caliber not necessary, in fact, the cleaner (minimal effects if any) the sound, the better!
2. Send the FIRST 10 sec of your section to next person on list and the whole section to the stitcher.
3. Your music ideally should build up to whatever you heard musically/lyrically in the 10 seconds you received!
4. Have fun with it!
