Some brilliant minds live out there on the internet, and sometimes they pool together on the surface to make something pretty. Over at the Ninjatune Forum, just such a thing happened: The 64 Bar Challenge. Read on after the jump…
A simple concept – Musicians and DJs write music with two rules; a tempo & as you may have guessed, a bar count. The resultant pieces of music are then blended into something more than the sum of it’s parts. A mesmeric mix where no individual track outstays it’s welcome. It is fluid, fast moving and surprising. The lack of parameters leave the doors wide open for some unexpected interpretations. You never know what is round the corner.
At times it’s reminiscent of the masterpiece 70 minutes of madness, but what’s particularly enjoyable is the knowledge that the guys behind it are just in it for the kick of making something good.
64 Bar Challenge will be the subject of our next Seeks Beats, but in the meantime here is our feature on them.
