Exquisite Corpse thread

So, @plainwhitetoast has started the big Kaiju Corpse for this year’s 50/90, and I thought “what about other shorter corpses?”

In a nutshell - an exquisite corpse is where people take it in turns to create about a minute of a piece (it could be a little longer or shorter), until each person has provided their section, and then it is “stitched” together by someone.

One person starts it off, then sends their whole piece to the “stitcher”, and their last ten or so seconds to the person following them, for base their section on.

This carries on until all of the pieces are complete, when it is stitched, and posted up.

With that in mind, I thought that I’d start a thread asking who is interested?

So far I’m thinking;

Corpse 1 - Open-production
1. @marvsmooth DONE
2. @sph DONE
3. @nateger DONE
4. @metalfoot
5.
Stitcher - @marvsmooth

Corpse 2 - Basic production
1. @metalfoot
2. @kahlo2013
3. @nateger

5.
Stitcher - @metalfoot

Corpse 3 - Bigger Production
1. @Dragondreams DONE
2. @sph
3.
4. @Mt.Mélodie
5.
Stitcher - @Dragondreams

Corpse 4 - Progressive/Experimental
1. @sph
2. @plainwhitetoast
3. @Dragondreams
4. @lowhum
5. @Mt.Mélodie
Stitcher - @Mt.Mélodie

Corpse 5. Backwards Acoustic
5. @marvsmooth DONE
4. @AndyGetch DONE
3. @lowhum
2. @kahlo2013

Stitcher - @AndyGetch

Any other suggestions are welcome.

Put me in for Bigger Production and Prog - and I'm happy to stitch for either/or both. Smile

@Dragondreams - okay. I’ll put you down to stitch for the bigger production at the moment.

Where do you want to be with them both?

Basic production, that's totally my thing. Willing to do whatever you need of me, good sirrah.

Also willing to take part in the open prod one.

I'm in for bigger productions and progressive/experimental, prefer to be towards the end. Can stitch the progressive one if needed.

@marvsmooth I'll start the bigger production, somewhere near the middle for the prog please. Smile

Put me down for any of the corpses!

Open and one of bigger or prog for me. Can do the stitching for any of the corpses. Thanks for starting the thread

Basic production sounds best for me.
Not sure what open means, but could do that possibly depending where people are needed

May I humbly suggest adding a link to or a brief explain of the corpse concept. Also I suggest adding a "Backwards Acoustic Corpse". Similar to exquisite corpse except the first writer creates the LAST minute plus segment of the song, then sends their FIRST ten seconds with lyric/chords to the second writer (and the full piece to the stitcher). The second writer writes their minute plus to lead up to the first writers segment and sends their first ten seconds to the third writer (and full segment to the stitcher), and so on. I would be happy to participate in (or not) and stitch that one.

@marvsmooth Put me in position 3 or 4 on the Prog/Experimental please. Smile

I'd like to join. my order of preference is
1. Progressive/Experimental
2. Basic
3. Bigger
All, some or any of those.

4&5 yeah Lol

@Dragondreams, @plainwhitetoast - check the edited thread opener.

@sph, @Dragondreams, @kahlo2013, @nateger, @lowhum, @AndyGetch, @metalfoot, @Mt.Mélodie, @plainwhitetoast - please check opening post for edits to the run list.

Stick me in the open production corpse as well, @marvsmooth

@metalfoot - done!

We could do with a BIG finish to that one I think?

Hi @Dragondreams, if no one else is brave enough I will give it a try. Send your last 10 seconds to me

@Dragondreams - I’ve placed @sph in second position for the big production (corpse 3)

sent my 10ish seconds for acoustic backwards to @lowhum a few days ago and ready to begin stitching

@marvsmooth and @sph
Link to last ten seconds sent about five minutes ago. Smile

@metalfoot I sent the 10 seconds to you!

Hiya, just popping in to say that I have @sph's snippet for the prog/exp corpse, and I have been thinking about, but haven't found time yet. I should have something ready in the next day... -ish.

Sorry for sitting on stuff, folks. I'll be working at my backlog today!

OK, Have sent 10s off to @kahlo2013 for basic production corpse. Am willing to do home lap for the reverse corpse. And have downloaded snippet from @nateger for open prod corpse.

I've had a small inventory of songs I was trying to finish and didn't want to sign up for any corpses until I was done. I should finish the last one by this weekend, so I could jump in toward the end of Open/Basic Production or Backwards Corpse, if they still need an additional participant.
