Metafilter Music Collaboration #2 June 1, 2009 9:30 PM   Subscribe

Hello, Citizens of MetaFilter! Over in the MeFi Music section, MeFi musicians have been playing a game of Exquisite Corpse for the last year or so. Now we have something that you can listen to.

This project started with this post from April, 2008. I apologize for how long this has taken, but at least we didn't put Axl in charge.

Briefly, the finished song involves 20 MeFites collaborating, each of whom heard only the contribution of one other person and nothing else. Full details and credits are over here.

Will there be a live performance for Metafilter's birthday?

I commented in the Music thread as well, but wanted to give my thanks here. Great stuff and one of the things that makes this community so wonderful. Job well done.

Yeah, I'm really glad this came together. Serious long-haul kind of thing. I'm glad you put in the legwork to get it pulled together, Karlos.

Won't have a chance to listen to this until later tonight, but I've been curious to see how it would come out. Thanks for all the work on this, Karlos!

Sweet. I can't wait to get the tracks on this one, so I can remix the heck out of it. Thanks for kicking ass, Karlos.

How come no percussion? Man, I really need to get in on the next one. Everything's better with darbuka!
