So, I have this idea?maybe it?s a dream?"
These words, posted on an internet bulletin board, become the spark needed to create Convergence - The Dream.
The idea behind Convergence is to use the internet as a collaboration studio. Invite eight to ten ProTools® capable musicians from around the world, and use online collaboration to blend their music together. Let one composition inspire the next, producing a full length album.
None of the artists have ever meet, and all their work and ideas are communicated online
It works something like this; the first musician creates a seven minute piece of music, which is posted on a central website. This piece will become the center, or heart, of the musical journey. The next two artists,inspired by this seed, write the music they feel should come before and after this central song. Each creates new music that is intended to rise up out of the beginning or the end of the first song, transforming it into some new. One piece of music fades into the next, weaving a sonic journey. Then, the new songs are posted, and another round is soon underway.
This is how the music of Convergence becomes greater than the sum of its parts.
Convergence - The Dream; inspired by ProTools ® music software, and using the internet as a music studio, is the first musical endeavor of this kind (that we know of)
All proceeds from the sale of this CD will be donated to little kids rock in an effort to help put instruments in the hands of future musicians.
