Anyone want to make music together?
No, that is not a euphemism...
Anyone ever heard of [URL=http://www.lacunaemusic.com/]Lacunae[/URL]?
They're a band though they've never met each other. Read on...
[QUOTE=Lacunae site]The members of Lacunae have never met.
Their music has roots in the electronics of artists like Boards of Canada, Skinny Puppy, and Gary Numan; and in the dark, sexual undertones of Tricky and Portishead.
Kasten Searles: vocals, tape recorders, digital audio recorders, toy synthesizers, ukulele, ambient noise
Arson Bright: analog-modeling synthesizers, samplers, sequencers, field recordings
A. Peluso: samplers, digital synthesizers, samplers/triggers, sequencers
Kasten is currently located in Philadelphia, PA, Arson in Concord, NH, and A. Peluso in Columbus, OH.
Much of lacunae's sound can be attributed to their distinct songwriting process. The recordings grow from isolation. Kasten's voice travels to Arson. Arson's arrangements travel to A. A. recompiles the material for the listener.[/QUOTE]

[B]What I'm wondering is, would anyone be game for a project like this?[/B]
I don't care what form it takes... it could be anything from people on the Cult here sending me samples of them talking, singing, playing instruments; then me mixing and compiling it. It could be each of five or six people making a different song with the [I]same [/I]samples, one from each person in the group.
It could be instrumental, vocal, hard rock, electronic, prog, concept... whatever.
I just know there are a lot of creative people on this forum, and it'd be cool to see if we could put our heads together over the next several months and etch out some tunes that we all had a hand in, to some degree or another.
Post your ideas here.
