D01 2 players, 6 notes, 7 days, 1 voice

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Thu Mar 03, 2011 8:10 am

Hello,
Here is a game to start us off, for 2 players.
Who would like to play it with me?

D01 2 players, 6 notes, 7 days, 1 voice
D01 means that the game is first year level.
2 players means that the work is to be constructed by 2 players.
6 notes means that each player invents a sequence of 6 notes.
The work is under construction for 7 days.
1 voice means that the collective work is monophonic.
The rhythm is free and modifiable.

The first player records a sequence of 6 notes, the second player repeats what his predecessor played and completes his phrase by adding another sequence of 6 notes to it. The first player repeats what the previous player played and adds another 6 notes. At the end of a week, one of the players finishes off the collective work with a concluding phrase and indicates in his post that the work is completed. If a contribution does not fit the specifications, the other player can ignore it or adopt it, but it is advisable to reject contributions that are above the level proposed and which would put the other player in difficulty.

Here then are my first 6 notes. I call this game Berlin:

:cornet: When you decide to participate in a game and before recording your notes: post a message to say you are about to take the next turn.

There is nothing stopping you from starting up another game.

Here's my attempt. Sorry about the bad sounds quality. Still working on that. I also missed the second E - will put that back in next time.

Hmmm...this sounds intriguing. Reminds of a Surrealist drawing game I used to play called "Exquisite Corpse".

Here is the conclusion! I'm still having trouble with the leaps, but the rest is becoming easier. This has turned out to be a great exercise.

Thank you! :merci:
