Tessera by The Freeharmonic Orchestra
Steve Combs and Simon Mathewson have expanded on the partnership resulting in their Notes album, yielding what we believe is the largest musical collaboration among Free Music Archive artists. Enlisting a dozen musicians with diverse backgrounds from the FMA, Steve set up a framework for random collaboration on the dozen tracks comprising the album. With three musicians per track, assigned to either start, continue or finish their piece, we present a set of audio exquisite corpses.
To represent the random assemblage comprising the music, the album art is constructed with tiles provided by each participant.
