Hashtag Armada

The embeddable Tweet above is a follow up on Hashtag Armada's Twitter-based composition project.
Each game starts with a set of parameters, such as “solo piano, 4/4, 140 bpm.” A composer writes one measure, then tags someone to write the next one. He or she can describe the measure they have written to whomever they have tagged, but their description is limited to a single tweet. The first round has just been completed. Parameters for the next round will be posted here shortly.

Their project is pretty cool! More than 25 composers from all over the world participated. To view the score, click here.
