Two

Second Iteration

By now, everyone participating in Project knew the purpose of the recordings. Rather than have them play completely deaf to one another, I designed a simple user interface which allowed people to hear exactly one other clip. It would select a clip that the person hadn't heard before and hadn't recorded themselves, and would only allow them to hear that clip until they uploaded another clip, with the suggestion (but not the requirement) that they accompany the clip directly. If there were no clips which met those criteria, it would invite them to record a seed.

The initial seed for the entire project was a simple Latin rhythm built out of loops.

The resulting track is a somewhat different beast.

Unlike in One, I didn't apply any effects or volume changes; the clips were perfect the way they were.
