The CT Collective was started by Michael Klobuchar using cassettes (remember them?) The group members contributed music by mailing a master tape which was distributed to the members as a CD. No one got paid for any of this! I found it a great creative stimulus, creating music to fit the theme and hearing how others interpreted it.
A “sequel” to Acoustic I, which was produced in 2001. All the tracks are “acoustic,” or at least dealing with acoustic instruments and/or dynamics.
My track is “Bleaklow” – q Legacy LED2oCE acoustic, DI’d direct into Ableton live. I started with a finger-picked chord sequence, then added some “bass”, harmonics and e-bow.
