milkcrate

I mentioned this to Paul, I thought I would post it up here for anyone interested.

http://www.milkcrate.com.au/

Milkcrate is not a band or a particular group of people. Milkcrate adds a further set of constraints of space, time and materials to create music within.

The rules...

* The objective of milkcrate is to write, record and produce as much music as possible, creating a completely finished product within twenty- four hours of beginning the session

* No member of the group is to leave the environment, within reason

* All materials and raw sources used to create music must be explicitly non- musical

* All the materials must fit inside or on a milkcrate

* There is a limit of one milkcrate per person

* At least one member of the group must be productive at all times

These rules are modular in nature; milkcrate sessions may have additional constraints, so long as they do not break the existing ones.
Make it happen.

Lol I didn't notice that, I think the idea is that you can still carry the milkcrate.
