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...
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
