D03, 2 players, 6 notes, 1 voice, 7 days

Post by Jeremy Hickerson » Thu Apr 28, 2011 4:50 am

Here is a game for 2 players.
Someone in the D03 group will hopefully play with me!

D03 2 players, 6 notes, 7 days, 1 voice
D03 means that the game is third year level.
2 players means that the work is to be constructed by 2 players.
6 notes means that each player invents a sequence of 6 notes.
The work is under construction for 7 days.
1 voice means that the collective work is monophonic.
The rhythm is free and modifiable.

The first player records a sequence of 6 notes, the second player repeats what his predecessor played and completes his phrase by adding another sequence of 6 notes to it. The first player repeats what the previous player played and adds another 6 notes. At the end of a week, one of the players finishes off the collective work with a concluding phrase and indicates in his post that the work is completed. If a contribution does not fit the specifications, the other player can ignore it or adopt it, but it is advisable to reject contributions that are above the level proposed and which would put the other player in difficulty.

here's the first 6 notes:

Hi Jeremy, I'm not sure I got your last notes, feel free to let me know.
Yes, we had a nice weekend here as well, very dry and windy but quite warm, the Pacific air has been blown well out to sea. I did a couple of hard bike rides with my friends as usual in the mornings and a little work in the neighborhood garden and some rather unpleasant rat extermination (there has been a major population explosion this spring, at least I don't have a dead one in the ventilation system of my truck like my friend!)

Hello Greg,

Funny you should mention rats; my daughter woke us up last night about 4am complaining about something scratching around in her wall. I made a couple of holes in the wall when I got home from work, but nothing. She said she also heard it downstairs when she went down to sleep on the sofa. And I heard it just now as I was recording this, up in the corner by the ceiling. Looks like I'll dig into that wall tomorrow night!

HI Jeremy, Thanks for playing. I've done very little (nothing) by ear in my playing so far and I found this a challenging exercise. I don't think I got your last measure quite right (and it's too slow) but it's getting late! I put an ending on it, and I'm calling it a day.
