The Twenty-Four Hour Album Meets the Internet
This is Andy, and I will be making posts about the Twenty-Four Hour Album right here. For those who do not know what the Twenty-Four Hour Album is:
The Twenty-Four Hour Album is a musical project co-created by Kurt and Jeremy in 2000. The concept was to write, rehearse, and record an album's worth of material in a 24 hour period. Though the first album has been since lost, and the album took a year hiatus in 2005, it has been an annual event with participation from many Denver local and visiting musicians for nearly a decade now. With styles including electroclash, country, pop, rock, hiphop, techno, and particularly the collage of styles that makes the album particularly unclassifiable, the Twenty-Four Hour Album has been an exciting experiment for musicians, both professional and amateur. It has been a time to experiment with instruments and styles that people have had little experience with, or just an outlet for people to make collaborative music. Each year, it seems to take on a different guise and purpose, and hopefully it will for years to come.
