Ambient relay

Recently I joined an "ambient relay," where each participant contributed to two tracks.

This asynchronous collaboration crossed the finish line today and is now on Bandcamp.

I've been involved with various relays and appreciate they all have different approaches.

At first I thought we'd only be listening to the contribution of the person ahead of us, then realised that was an assumption from other processes.

You can see in this graphic how the process was designed for each participant to build on the previous collaborator.

I find myself a bit irritated that some of the more textural sounds sit in the foreground of the mix, but enjoyed the prompt to develop new work and explore a different practice.
