Mosaic Music 1 (Feb 2011) – Results

February 28th, 2011 § 0 comments

Well here are the results of the inaugural Mosaic Music. 5 entries is 4 more than I was expecting, so its a good start in terms of numbers, and a few folk have said they will try to do it in March. Anyway, below is the soundcloud player thing that I’ve put together. Thanks to Pablo, Michael, Olly, Casey and Hugo. DJ Full Moon – Lacan by Mosaic Music
Son of Portslade – Mosaic 1 (Tabacco) by Mosaic Music
Craig Coulthard – A Generous Joy by Mosaic Music
Honeyfuzz – The Couriers by Mosaic Music
Hugo de Verteuil – Moderato Cantabile by Mosaic Music
PARAMETERS:
1. Under 1 minute
2. Between 150 & 160 bpm
3. Inspiring genres – Therapy, Krautrock, Big Beat
4. Instruments – 3 x Brass, 1 x Synth, 1 x Other (plus percussion etc)
5. The key of ‘C’
6. 4 x vocals (if you want)
7. Lyrics from a book
8. Other instructions – “Emphasise the flaws” & “Accretion”

1. DJ Full Moon “Lacan” – So, this is from DJ Full Moon (aka Pablo and Michael) and is named after the French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan and although the lyrics are not directly from any of his writings “baby won’t you lay down on the chaise longue” are words I hope Lacan would have said more than once.

2. Son of Portslade “Mosaic 1 (Tabacco)” – Olly’s lyrics here come from Jeremy Narby’s book “The Cosmic Serpents”

3. Craig Coulthard “A Generous Joy” – I apologise, mine’s is over 1 minute long, but they are only guidelines after all…the lyrics to this come from 2 seperate poems (in the same book) by Sorley Maclean.

4. Honeyfuzz “The Couriers” – This comes from Casey, just before midnight on the last day of February. The lyrics come from a book of poems called “Ariel” by Sylvia Plath.

5. Hugo de Verteuil “Moderato Cantabile” – Hugo has gone all analog and recorded his originally on 4 track. The lyrics (moderato cantabile) are the title of a novel by Marguerite Duras. It was also made into a film (see below).

I hope you enjoy these tracks, and please do send something in next time – I’ll be putting up a video of the March draw soon. Just for your own interest, here’s a couple of video’s related to some of the lyrical content for the above tracks. Cheers!
