gae_layahoo.it Posted November 11, 2002 Share Posted November 11, 2002 hello,i'm looking for suggestions for an audio experiment i am about to make with my friends later this year (december the 29th). the experiment comprises 17 musicians that play electric guitar on an altered major C scale ( C - D - E - F - G - A - B flat). all the guitars will be open-tuned in the following fashion (from the lower E to the upper E) : "C C C G D D" some of the players will be playing "G D D C" ad libitum,therefore never touching the fretboard, while the others will be playing random melodic figures based on the altered C sacle. there will be no tempo: all of the musicians can play the notes at the speed they prefer. there are only three basic rules: -the "GDDC" secion of the ensemble must play the D's on both the D tuned strings (ie. they can't play D twice on the same string) -the musicians must play the guitar with continuous sustain,which means that once they've hit a string they will have to hit the next one before the first has stopped vibrating. -the guitars must be well tuned i'd also like to spread the players and their amps through the hall instead of having them postioned in a semicircle like a classic orchestra. the aim of this experiment is to create a "wall" of notes and harmonics. so...any other suggestions? sorry for my bad english. thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
