I’ve found a new fun site called Thounds.
“Thounds is a music platform, easily accessible through a social network. Thounds helps people capture their musical inspirations which can be recorded live with a computer microphone or by plugging in a real instrument. Finished tracks can be shared through blog pages, Facebook, Myspace, Virb and other popoluar networks.
Ideas don’t only come from musicians: everyone gets musical inspirations and Thounds helps catch them. Whether you are a musician or just a music lover, you can contribute to a new track and enjoy it with your friends and with many others around the world.”
The nice thing about it is that they have an iPhone app, so if I come up with an idea I can just grab my phone and record the melody straight away and then people can start adding stuff like guitar riffs, bass lines, beats etc.!
That’s how great music is made!
Here’s my first “thound”, I sang a hook into my iPhone and in a couple of hours a dude from Spain called horriblito had added some really nice guitar riffs and backing vocals to it! You can also hear my daughter Ella, 6 months old, trying to sing along in the background…
