Join me to help write a collaborative work of art! A Twitter Symphony.
Anyone who wishes can suggest a musical theme, rhythm, or instrument, mood, character, style.
Those with musical experience can offer harmonies or even longer solo passages for a particular instrument.
Interested composers could perhaps do some of the heavy lifting, creating a section of orchestrated music based on a mix of their ideas and others.
Individual efforts will combine to create a Twitter Symphony inspired by sounds from the world: birds, crickets, cicadas, wind chimes, dripping water rhythms, traffic rhythms or sounds.
To give it some cohesion, the work's name is Hummingbird, a delicate creature with incredible energy, perhaps signifying the delicate tenacity of the world's ecosystems.
To add ideas, Tweet #cr8 #TwitSym. Or comment on this post. Or email me.
Are you interested?
Who wants to write a motive or subject (loosely) based on one of bird songs? I claim the Carolina Chickadee! The Carolina Wren has enough variety to merit a fugal subject. The White Throated Sparrow has an eerie call.
Here are five bird songs slowed down to quarter speed.
