The album would chronicle a hero’s journey based on the archetype themes from Joseph Campbell’s The Hero with a Thousand Faces. Each artist would be assigned to create a track in the record that reflects a specific leg in the quest archetype. For example, Band A begins the narrative by composing a song based on “the call to adventure”. Then without having heard Band A’s track, Band B would then continue the story by writing a song derived from the next step in the hero’s journey.
This process would continue with various bands until the record/story is complete. For the sake of continuity, a rough profile of the main character would be provided to all of the musicians but they would have artistic freedom to fill in the details of the narrative.
If you are a musician/band keen to collaborate on an exquisite album, then have your people call my people (me) and we can make music history.
