Cloud Crowd Found Sound - 3.0 - Eratosthenes Round Unwaltz
Another of these, and for the moment the last. However I am already thinking of a sequel where I'll ask people to send random English phrases for me to compose together... This time I had the idea to start with waltz rhythm.  This did not survive contact wi...

Songs I wrote but Hallam wasn't inspired by (yet)
More workpieces from Hallam London and my factory floor. Completed lyrics waiting for musical inspiration this time.  There's about one of these for every piece that does have at least an idea for the music... The Anithero  - a man whose superpower is seei...

Ten lyrics I so far failed to write
In collaborating with Hallam London we work in a shared online space where we store, edit and comment on songs in various degrees of completion. We usually start with lyrics and move towards completing the music as a song progresses (although both remain su...
