So far in another thread started by @plainwhitetoast, here is his explanation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwzlTMUP8zw&feature=youtu.be @downburst @JamKar and @airbagtester have expressed interest. What is a morph you ask? Here is my explanation. A morph is a songwriting chain game where the first song in the chain can be any 5090 song that someone wants to volunteer. The second songwriter opens to the first song and changes or rewrites approximately 50 percent of the first song, posts a recording of their rewrite to 5090 as a new song, posts a link to the 5090 song post in this thread, and sends a message to the third songwriter that it is their turn and if it has music, provides musical information like key, chords, tempo. This post will act as a scoreboard so particpating songwriters can see progress to anticipate their turn, and know which songs to avoid opening when they are up later in the chain.
Changing 50 percent can be whatever you want for a words and music song, all new words to the same music, all new music to the same words, or a hybrid of changing part of the music and part of the lyrics (which I prefer). In the spirit of experimentation, it could be interesting to have an instrumental chain, and even a lyrics only chain. Obviously the lyrics only chainwriters are changing 50 percent of the words, and instrumental writers changing 50 percent of music.
I also like to name the prior songwriter as a collaborator, but that is optional. What makes the game even more interesting is if everyone from the third songwriter in the chain on only opens the previous song, and does not open the first song or any songs before the previous song in the chain. Another fun thing is for the songwriter who volunteered the first song to also finish the chain with the last song. Ideally we would have five to eight people in a chain, and each song would be written in a few days to keep the chain moving. For writers in the chain, it is a lot of fun to open prior songs after your song is posted.
So who else would like to play and who wants to volunteer a song for words and music, lyrics only, and instrumentals?
and so on
