We’ve had crowdfunding, we’ve had Twitch crowd-completing Pokemon, we’ve even had The Button, but now the internet is banding together to write music.
‘This is an experiment in crowd-sourced songwriting. A melody is currently being generated, note by note, in real-time, using the popular vote of the crowd,’ says crowdsound.net.
‘Will the Wisdom of the Crowd create something special? This melody will eventually become a song with a chord structure of C, G, Am, F repeated 18 times. It will have a structure of (Verse / Verse / Chorus / Verse / Chorus / Conclusion). Lyrics for this song will also be crowd-generated in our next experiment.’
Anyone can help create the melody, by simply voting for what you think the next note of the melody should be. Full story.
