Corpus Progressus Uno




Liner Notes: 

This is an "exquisite corpse" (pieces around a minute or so stitched together to make a whole) that involves participants providing sections that are progressive in genre. A couple of years ago, I actually thought that it seemed natural for there to be a progressive corpse, because at times, progressive rock songs are actually like little segments stitched together, such as Close To The Edge by Yes, 2112 by Rush, etc...

I apologise for my terrible introductory 1 minute and 51 seconds (rule books be darned). I will finish filling in the timings later! I didn't have time to replace the bad sequenced bass with real bass either (my 5-string is at the doctor's).

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Really nice adventure! Great job everyone!

Nice work everyone. My section was taken from a long lost prog rock triple album dramatisation of the book of Genesis. This is an extract from the last track on side 1, CHAPTERS 6-9: NOAH. This part is from the peak of the raging flood. Didn't want to use the NSFW tag so I cut it off before the orgy commenced and the track descended into the horrific caterwauls of various hybrid and inbred offspring.

So much fun -- such interesting sounds and textures throughout. All of you contributed your own voices musically to this and it really was 'marv'ellously stitched!

Quite a journey! Thank you to everyone involved!

That was absolutely fabulous guys!

I even enjoyed my own bit, which I wasn't too sure about until now!

I don't want to single anyone out, but you all gave your top game here, and it shows!

Yeah, great work everybody!!
Really impressive work from you all!
Really lush sounding (except for my part, that is)!

I disagree Fuzzy.

I think your section is fabulous in a way similar to Bonzo Dog Band, Egg, Zappa, and similar experimental progressive/psychedelic acts.

Everyone has provided fascinating pieces that have created a wonderful whole that, I think, is very repeatable.

Well thank you, Martin. I just meant that my production sounds a bit muffled to me, unlike the rest of the tune.
