Cut and Run, four bars of flow

A while back, the Cut and Run project was devised by 64bar’s Techdef and Red Havoc, and on the day the video hits you tube, we thought it would be a cool idea to hightlight what is a very creative concept, done well.

Cut And Run is a musical version game of consequences ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consequences_(game) ).
The game was played between March and August 2011 by members of the Ninja Tune Records online community forum ( http://www.ninjatune.co.uk/forum/​ ).

The idea behind the game was that the first participant would produce four bars of original music, send the finished four bars to a nominated member who would assemble the finished pierce, and then send just their fourth bar to the next player who would then develop their own four bars from that point and repeat the process.

Certain rules were put in places to aid the process as outlined in this image: http://www.flickr.com/​photos/​redhavoc/​6043588948

Enjoy!
