Fellowship of Axo - 1 of 2
Submission date: open ended, feel free to add more seeds at any time
The "Fellowship of Axo" challenge centres on collaboration, exploring with others.
Part one is about providing seeds of inspiration to other musicians, which they can plant and grow to fruition in part two.
For this challenge, your task is to provide a seed of inspiration, something that can be used (and abused) in part two. To encourage participation, I'll keep it vague, but my ideas are
- an audio source : a sound, part of a track, a melody
- a patch : an instrument, a sequencer
the seed can be as simple or as complex as you like, sometimes, a tiny snippet of audio is all that's needed to take us off into a new direction.
In Part Two (reaping the fruits) musicians can take one or more seeds, and use to create a piece. they will be free to use it in anyway they see fit, either in part or in full, recognisable or not
When creating the seed, we are all restricted in time, so make it simple for your fellows, if your submitting a patch, consider an audio snippet too - perhaps your fellow might choose to use just the audio.
- Axoloti must be a major part the seed creation
- Seed must not include any copyrighted material
- To use the seed (in part 2) must not require anything other than Axoloti
you can use any tools you wish alongside axoloti
e.g. its fine to use a synth, and use Axoloti as an FX (if the FX is the major part of the submission), or flipped around use Axoloti as the sound generator and use external effects.
again, samples ( in accordance with copyright) , synthesis, fx - all is game for creation.
demonstration - either video or soundcloud link, demonstrating what your offering as a seed. embed a link here, the name of the game here, is make it simple for the fellowship to get a glimpse of the potential of your seed.
'The Seed' - depending upon what your seeding, you can provide an audio file, or patch or both.
Audio File - which can be used directly as the seed for part two.
post link here - WAV format, hosted on a site that does not require registration. (Id recommend dropbox, via a shared link) , try to keep the size 'reasonable'... I personally don't want to be downloading GBs of samples
Patch - you can post here and/or you can upload to community library and provide details here
lets get sowing .... the more seeds we sow, the more fruit we will reap.
note: it looks like everyone is busy, so Ive decided to make this an 'open ended' challenge, with no end date, so please feel free to add new seeds at any time... and hopefully someone will pick it up to develop it.
