Desk Drum circle continues -- writing intended for reRECording
This week, I talked about the continuing collaboration known as the Desk Drum Circle. I also had a thing or two to say about writing. Well, since I'm writing this description, second things first.
WRITING. There's a lot of good writing on hitRECord. Now here's how I'd like to take it a step further. I'd like to see more writing that is written and released here with the intention of becoming something more. Write something that's meant to be read aloud. Write a script that's meant to be acted out or animated. Write lyrics that are meant to be sung or recited.
Here's some more specific suggestions:
Write some words intended to be spoken/sung/rapped/recited along with the Desk Drum Circle.
Write something about Sundance.
Write a script for a comedy sketch.
Write a script for any sort of short form media piece.
Or, for those who don't want to write...
Try the reverse. Find a piece of writing on hitRECord that you like, and reRECord it into something new. Turn it into a video, or a song, or a speech, or a drawing, or a photo, etc. Use a piece of writing as a Resource, and Release that new Result.
I love how the Desk Drum Circle is coming along. Everyone's contributions are awesome! In the video, I highlighted some that I found particularly remarkable. Now, what this collaboration really needs at this point is this...
CALLING ALL MUSIC EDITORS!
We need you (and I'll do some too this week) to go through these various resources and chop them down to the good bits. Every contribution has some parts that are on rhythm and some parts that are off rhythm. If we can just sample those on-rhythm bits, and put them all together, looped onto a grid of 120 BPM, we will end up with one hell of a tight beat.
That should do it for this week.
