12/12, or BTB 20/20: Pt. II

May 16th, 2012 |  Published in Blog  |  1 Comment

As old Borum dwellers will know, one of the inaugural projects of BTB was the 20/20 project: 20 people made tapes/cdrs/videos and then sent a copy to each of the other 19. This was essentially a success, but with some flaws and weak points. To redress these defects, we are now launching the 12/12 project… As the name suggests, 12 people create a release and send a copy to the other 11. The key difference between 20/20 and 12/12 is that each release will be staggered, with each participant assigned a particular month in which to send out their creation. This will hopefully encourage much greater feedback and criticism from the 11 recipients, and allow a month to focus on the release. Participants will also be encouraged to upload their release to the BTB soundcloud for the duration of the month, so that anyone can hear it and partake in its forum discussion – though uploading will not be mandatory.
