D02, 4 notes, 3 phrases of 4 measures, polyphonic

Post by Mike Modjeski » Sun Feb 19, 2012 2:40 pm

D02, Players limited to members of current D02 class, 4 notes, 3 phrases of 4 measures, polyphonic

"D02" means that the game is second year level.

The work is to be constructed by members of current D02 class. Players please limit your contribution to once until all active members of current D02 class have participated.

"4 notes" means that each player invents a sequence of 4 notes.

The work is under construction till completion.

"Polyphonic" means that the collective work can have multiple voices, provided they can be played simultaneously by a single player of D02 level.

The first player records a sequence of 4 notes, the next player repeats what his predecessor played and ads another sequence of 4 notes to it. This continues until first phrase of 4 measures is complete. ( Note that as this is polyphonic, 4 notes can be added to existing composition without adding any measures.) Once first phrase is completed a new, different phrase is begun and likewise for the third.

Once a player has decided to contribute, they should post and indicate their intent so that players aren't working on the same measures. Once a players intent is indicated, they should submit their contribution within two days.

I hope to find a tool for creating a score as the work is being created. If anyone knows of such, please reply.

I will start the game by providing a submission within two days.

Here we go!

:D

You might check that again Eli, I only hear two notes out of you :/
Good ones though, I like the sound of it.

:? little confused; it says "4 notes" so i added a low G to the open G at the end of your bar, then an A octave (open A string + 2nd fret G string) to start bar 2, then the D on the B string = 4 individual notes. i've finished out the 2nd bar for you, though, so here you go. :bye:

Here are my four notes. I played the third note of the original part using the '4' as is taught in D01 (for descending notes.) It could be played as an open 'B2' string also.

The polyphonic notes are both to be found in both pieces of our current lesson (D02-06).

It doesn't allow the file extension for attachments here.. I can email it to anyone who wants it, though. Just message me your address.
