Benji Boko is to create a “genre-less” track from global collaborators.
The electronic musician is inviting members of the SoundCloud community to submit their sounds and will combine the clips with live pieces to mix together an original song as part of the site’s Global Meet Up Day on October 5.
Benji said: “For me, it’s a great opportunity to create music that is genre-less. I want this to feel like I’m collaborating with people from all around the world”.
Benji is inviting user to make original, non-machine generated sounds for submission onto the track, particularly “old and retro” musical instruments.
He added: “I’m looking for anything organic, rhythmic or ambient. This means nothing produced by machines. I want people stomping, clapping, hitting, slapping, walking, laughing, beatboxing, shouting and so on. Same goes for instruments, anything that sounds old and retro. ukuleles, guitars, mellotrons, pianos and so on. Any additional ambiances of crowds, parties from other SoundCloud meet-ups!”
