The Great World-Wide
I have known Mwana for a long time. The idea was simple enough. To start, either I would send Mwana a candidate musical Invention or he would send me one. We would send mp3 files with a sharp sync sound (like a snare hit) at the start—just like movie makers do. We would create musical overdubs and send them back with a copy of the sync sound still attached. The one with the original multitrack files matches up the sync sound in the overdub to the sync sound in the original recording. Once the two sync sounds were lined up, the overdub would be locked into place with the original track. The result? A recording studio (in Arizona) capable of doing multitrack overdubs with a microphone 9,504 miles away (in South Africa) and vice versa.
