Simple challenge. Record yourself playing a new and original phrase at 120 bpm or close enough. Anything can start us off. Drum, voice, instruments. Either video or audio will do. Video is probably easier because you can record it on your phone and post it on Facebook.
I will clip out 4 bars of it and begin to loop them in my software.
Once we have a key or rhythm set I will post a backing track and we can start adding to that.
First Theresa Laid down a beautiful djembe groove. I slipped it in my audio editor and evened out the tempo a little and added some drum and percussion to hold it together. Next i added a little piano vamp over it to give it a tonal centre.
Allan took it away and added a popping bass line.
What comes next?
Vincent Touret just sent in parts for Trombone and Trumpet. We now have a starting point for the melody. Other horn players could add to those. (Unfortunately can’t upload them tonight as I am away from home and my phone won’t do it. ) 1st April hopefully. I could email them to you if you are keen.
A guitar groove or some vocal wizadry or a blistering brass line?
