You know that game where one person draws the HEAD of a person on a piece of paper, folds it over, then passes it to the next person..
Who then (without knowing what the head looks like) draws the torso.
Folds, then passes it to someone who draws the legs.
At the end you unfold it, and laugh at/admire what you have created.
Earlier on, i was using SKYPE for the first time, my microphone didn't work. The person who i was talking to had a microphone which worked fine. She was talking, i was typing.
Anyway, at some point, i leave the room.
When i return, she is practicing her Cello.
Without her knowing, i start playing along with her.
I recorded it on a little camera, then listened back.
It sounds kinda cool.
IMAGINE THEN. A piece of music that is created in a similar fashion to the 'paper folded person game'....
You start with person A playing. After a minuet, person 2 starts following what they are doing.
Person C then turns up, but they are only allowed to listen to person B. & so on, & so on..
You could set a time limit for each performer, when the time is up, the Torch/task of 'leading' is passed along the line. Kinda like a cannon (is that the right term?)
This is what happened with 2 people:
Remember she can't hear me, and for it to work, i wouldn't be allowed to hear person C.
IS THE THE RAMBLINGS OF A MADMAN?
