    I don't have that much experience myself, but ever since I started my foray into composition I was curious about the possible outcome of a shared creation. I even traveled to Australia and Japan for the specific purpose of looking for collaborators but it never came to anything close to my expectations.

    So here's a clarion call - I have about a hundred projects in the backlog and zero motivation for my lazy ass to finish them. The chain must be broken. The art gods demand a proper tribute.

    I can provide references to the few things I actually finished if anyone's interested.

    I'm wondering why you aren't focused on asking for our help with motivating you to put them out yourself and "Be Your Own Grimes"? I encourage this.
    Collaborating is also good, though. (Not with me... I'm not a musician.)

    At this point, nothing concrete. Especially considering that doing this over the internet wouldn't exactly facilitate smooth communication of musical ideas. For now, let's just see if anyone is up for it.

    @Asa I suppose that's also fine Asa. I'm mostly interested in the novelty - music was always a collaborative effort, yet somehow I managed to not experience it in that way for years. And at any rate, there's certainly nothing to lose by sharing ideas.

    Well I like your attitude towards my attitude. :)
    No man is an island, and following Stravinsky's suggestion that "good composers borrow, great ones steal", I might as well steal before the ideas are even on paper.

    Sure, interested in listening to some music pieces. What kind of collaboration are you looking for?

    I don't think I'd participate but I am curious about your idea anyway. I'd like to hear the reference pieces.

    What DAW do you use?

    I would like to trade short musical ideas that we can then develop together. My biggest weakness is that I can have flashes of creativity in regards to a single part of a piece, but then completely blank out on what I should do around it, so I just archive it "for later" and then go on to repeat the cycle most of the time.

    @Korg I appreciate it either way. Started in Maschine, then did some mixing in Pro Tools, now I have everything in Ableton.

    Here's a selection of older works that are mostly hip hop or soul-esque.











    Plus a remix of a classic



    Nowadays I do mostly classical and orchestral stuff.

    I admire anyone that can get into composition or create something musically. I played piano for many years but in all that time I never once developed an interest in creating my own songs. I think I've always been the type of person that liked to perfect something given to me for exams and recitals but didn't really have the kind of mind that wanted to make something of my own.

    Best of luck with your collaboration though. I think it's a very interesting idea.

    Thanks. I was just talking about my guess on why I feel impelled to compose on my blog. Music is an exception, in general I'm not so different.

    Only tangentially. I'd love to but have little talent for composing, and there's so many things I'd love learning.
    Sometimes lyrics or melodies come to me, and at one time my singing voice wasn't so bad.

    What kind of things? I don't think I have any explicit talent myself. Often it feels too mechanical when I'm trying to make something emotive. Vocals are something I can't do easily myself, so that's something I would welcome.

    I was actually thinking of 'audiating' some of your poems. They would be a good template for developing some thematic exposition.

    I'm ok with taking ableton as the DAW of choice. My workflow is Logic Pro X, but I'll have a go. Installing it on my windows laptop (wanted to try it out anyway). Give me some time to get the DAW setup. I've got Maschine 2 here as well.

    I'd agree with just starting off with exchanging some musical snippets, have a bit of a exploration what fits. Keeping the full composing/mastering setup on a low for now.

    And to grab an introduction straight from the Ableton site:

    https://cdn-resources.ableton.com/resources/uploads/makingmusic/MakingMusic_DennisDeSantis.pdf

    You’re considering the possibility of working with other musicians but aren’t sure how to proceed. What do you look for in a collaborator? What should their role be in the creative process?

    One can dream unless they got like $20,000 or so on hand to buy one.

    Mainly Nords, Virus Ti and Electron (though this is one's weirdly)..I want to dive back into Moogs. I got guitars and a Rav Drum (G Pigmy), by far my most favorite instrument.

    Having said that, whatever works to be honest, VSTs now are powerful enough to take on anything.

    Audiate... you mean like, trying to translate their cadence & themes into music? you can if you like, that would be interesting ^_^ see what we turn out. I'd appreciate if you could link my Twitter writer's profile for any song you did; would that be too much?

    I recognize some of these words lol. I stick to keyboard + VST combo. I have guitars and a bass but no convenient way to record them or the skill to utilize them beyond making samples.

    @Winterflowers Sure, although I have virtually zero social media presence so I was planning to just send it to you directly or post it here.
