africana closed since june 30, 2000
update october 15 - 2000
it is intended to release the common result of africana on my new label dignose in spring 2001
update: june 1
after 4 months learning by doing some participants have succeeded in working out their own personal versions of africana and i edited them together into one of ca. 17 minutes, an apparently rich style file being derived from a few elementary samples. i would like to see it released on a cd, so watch out! it certainly has deserved it. but you already cana special edited trailer of africana. will take you approx. 20 minutes. even if it is a rather large file of 6 mb it can be only recommended to listen to this first collaborational result of ours on the internet.
update: march 14

enough samples collected as it appears. now it's the turn to create a basic track, everybody one on its own. these tracks will later get edited into one common track which will function successively as the basis for everyone's overboarding fantasies...
we will first start on the rhythm track details. the mp3 files should get downloaded and the participants should try to create own rhythm files which can easily get synchronized with the original samples. these newly created files van of course stand for themselves and don't need to be mixed with the originals beforehand. 2 bars have a duration of exactly 3.0 seconds. when these rhythm units are created they will be uploaded again onto the server and the next step would be to create a basic track consisting out of the all the elements the team has created and collected.
enough for the time being. our audience can follow the progress by clicking
