Rv: The ~chromatik_d_zabu.tmp music collective invites themembers of Vox Novus to join them in a round of compositionsin early August.
- Hi all,
some of you might be interested in this...
The ~chromatik_d_zabu.tmp music collective invites the members of Vox Novus
to join them in a round of compositions in early August. Participants will
collaborate remotely via Internet, building upon each other's tracks to
create a number of compositions that will ultimately be made available for
free download on the ~chromatik_d_zabu.tmp web site (www.cdzabu.com ).
The ~chromatik_d_zabu.tmp (CDZabu) collective was founded by a pair of
madmen from Montreal in 2004. Through collaborations and word-of mouth, it
has grown into a group of thirteen musicians from all over North America,
and the family is still growing. CDZabu is a creative outlet for musicians
who wish to work with a variety of influences, in a freeform environment
where anything is possible...
Our eventual collaboration with Vox Novus is yet another attempt at
creating connections between musicians. Our previous collaborative effort
with the participants of the Electronic Music Midwest yielded some
astonishing pieces of music.
Write music over the Internet? How?
The music is created sequentially, through the continual addition of
musical strata. The participants supply tracks in MP3 format, by uploading
them to an FTP server. The musicians do not meet physically to compose
their pieces: they simply take the music that was written before and add to
them. The details of the process can be found at the following address:
What do I need to know?
Participants are expected to know how to record their music using a
computer, but for the rest (MP3 conversion, FTP server operation), the
other members of CDZabu will happily provide coaching. You should have
access to a reasonably fast Internet connection, as each track of each
piece is roughly 5-7 MB in size.
Sounds interesting, how do I participate?
Contact snvl@.... Send me an e-mail and I'll send you your FTP site
password and more instructions!
There are no fees or costs, but there is no revenue either. The results of
the collaboration will be posted for free on the CDZabu web site
(www.cdzabu.com). We're in it for fun... we hope you'll join us!
