Lets Write a Song Together
*(Video progress reports below)*

I’m really excited about this new idea that came to me & I think some of you will find this to be fun as well. This is going to be the most interactive song I’ve attempted to date. I’m really interested to see how many of you participate. Your job will be to upload loops to me within the loose boundaries I specify. Then I will take those loops & build the ones I like into a song.

I plan to ustream my sessions live to take suggestions & comments. For those who can’t make it live, I will be posting the progress of our song until it’s completed. I’ll also share the uploaded loops with everyone so you all can have a go!

So this is going to be how it works:

We will make the song in the key of C Minor
If you aren’t sure about what notes make up a C Minor,

Ableton has a C Minor preset under the midi Scale effect
which will put anything you play in the correct key. Or you
can go here:

The tempo will be 125 BPM

The time signature will be 4/4 (feel free to use triplets though)

You will create a loop no smaller than 1 bar & no bigger than 32 bars

You can send as many loops as you’d like, but make sure each loop is only 1 instrument

You can create drums, bass, pads, effects, guitar, melodies, Vocals or anything you like

You can also send home recorded samples or field recordings 

Files must be rendered as audio & sent in 320 mp3, wav or aif formats

Give each loop file a name followed by your name so you can be credited.
(Realize you are sharing your loops with me & the rest of the community license free)

Use Dropsend.com or SendSpace to send me the loops to MusicSoftwareTraining@gmail.com 

I’d like to start this process on December 1st, so try to get me your loops & samples by that time. Once I start receiving loops I’ll begin constructing a song live at my Ustream channel and posting my progress at my Soundcloud page. I can’t guarantee I’ll use your loop, but if it works in my tune, it’s in. You’ll be welcome to leave comments during the process and make suggestions.

Lastly, I’ll share all the loops with my readers including any I make myself so you can go and create your own mix & share it with us. I’d be very interested to listen to everyone’s different results from the same source files.
