Project 22 is about creating music every single day during 2022.
The aim is to get a finished song at 31-12-2022 with a minimum duration of 36 minutes and 30 seconds.
This is an average of 6 seconds of music per day.
The starting point of the song/composition is 2 bars (in 4/4) at a pace of 90BPM, which is close to 6 seconds.
No key is yet defined… this will change when the first melodic phrase or chord will be played by me, or one of the participants.
I hope we will have as many as possible musicians and/or vocalists participating in this project.
Let’s create some beautiful music this year and feel free to record a 2, 4, or 8 bar phrase on top of the existing composition, or to add something new at the end of the composition.
The final arrangement will be made by me, so I might use or re-use your recording at another moment in the song.
The instruments used in the composition stage are from MuseScore. These will be changed at the moment I start with the arrangement and the editing of the song.

Day 5-6: I added an i-bVII-bVI-V7 chord progression in the key of A minor, with an A in the bass and a melodic theme on the top. [section A]
Day 7: I added 4 bars with a variation of the theme on the piano. [section B]
Day 8: I added a 4 bar modulation to the key of G major. [section C]
Day 9: Tempo change to 114BPM. [section D]
Day 10: I added a vocal line to section D, an instrumental theme [section E], and 4 bars in E major. [section F]
Day 11: I added the vocal line from section D with a variation to section F. Maybe the end is a bit quirky…
Day 12: I removed the quirky ending, and made a modulation (back) to the key of E minor, with a different rhythmic feeling. [section G]
