Second Square To None

Here it is, finally... enjoy the 52 Ten Second Rule entries joined together in one audio file on soundcloud!

For those of you who have no idea what a Ten Second Rule is, read on...

  1. By imposing arbitrary limitations (ten second track length) on a group of individual music makers, we hoped to compile a group of tracks that were unmistakably part of a larger project, yet showcase the unique styles / approaches of the artists involved.
  2. A time limit of ten seconds was chosen both as a challenge to the artists and as an ironic nod to the perception that attention spans grow shorter the faster internet connections become.
  3. Most categories of sound can be found in the collection - percussive, melodic, harmonious, noises, different frequency ranges etc. Thought of as ingredients for a larger composition/ compositions, these could be recombined, processed, edited in any number of different ways.
  4. With this in mind we have asked a number of artists who will be playing at our gig on 25-10-09 to use the material in whatever way they see fit as the basis for their live performances. For more information check HERE.
Update: To hear how the artists used the material at the DEAF performance, check out the sets by Dubreak, Fyodor, PushMoveClick & VinceMackMahon.
