So, I was sipping my tea the other day when I had a brainwave.
I'll try to break my idea down into lumps. I'm not very good at writing things that make sense. For evidence, please refer to every LBPC post I've ever written.
LBP Music Monkeys Unite!
The idea is to create the largest musical collaboration in LBP, simply by creating a music sequencer and passing it around the community like a hot potato.
For example, one creator (eg. me) starts a new sequencer, sets the tempo, echo, swing, reverb, whatever. Places a few blocks. Scores a few bars. Establishes a melody. Whatever. Then I deliberately leave it open-ended, unfinished, and send it as a LittleBigGift to another music creator that I know on my friends list, or elsewhere. The next creator continues it, expands it, develops it, evolves it, does whatever the smeg they want with it.
You get the gist. It's not rocket science. The idea the interests me is that it's not a collaboration in the traditional sense. It doesn't have to be particularly cohesive or consistent. In fact, it doesn't HAVE to be anything at all. It can vary wildly in style and mood, go off on random tangents. People can create in their own establish style, or attempt something new. It doesn't really matter. I just thought it would be a fun experiment... to create a music sequencer stamped with the personalities of a dozen creators, maybe more. It could end up being completely different to what it began as. And that's not a bad thing.
Obviously, there could be thermo issues. This can be circumvented by agreeing beforehand to using only a specific set of instruments/sounds. I have no idea what. I haven't thought through the nitty-gritty details. I'll leave that until somebody actually thinks this isn't a waste of time.
I was partially inspired by Velvet's thread to submit this one of my own. I don't start threads very often. I pull threads, and people's jumpers become unravelled.
