Willems, Christiaan H. (2007) Music mime & metamorphosis: interdisciplinary intersections, interactions and influences between music, mime and corporate communication. Doctoral project 1 (of 3): Blind collaboration. Other thesis, Queensland University of Technology (QUT). (Unpublished)
This paper examines the creation, development and implementation of an artistic process termed by the author ‘Blind Collaboration’. The process involves musicians collaborating on an album of contemporary music where they, the collaborators, do not see or hear each other nor record in the same studio at the same time as their fellow musicians.
The notion of musicians recording separately or indeed remotely is not new, however what is new is the ‘blind’ aspect of the process. Each musician is completely unaware of any others’ contributions, and is therefore uninfluenced by what the others might play. None of the musicians hears the overall result until the final mix.
The purpose of the study is not to examine the technical aspects of recording, other than in contextual terms. The principal focus and intention of this case study lies in the analysis of specific aspects and outcomes of the creative/artistic process - how it evolved, how it was managed, how it was influenced by the particular artists involved and how the Blind Collaboration process ultimately shaped the final musical work.
