GIMME15finder – RULES OF ENGAGEMENT:
1) Sign up below
2) Familiarize or re-familiarize yourself with scenario for this GIMME15, and general narrative (specifically ch4 and 5) posted on my songlist with videos. Or check them out at the bandcamp site: http://gimme15.bandcamp.com Get in the zone.
3) Contemplate the “finding love” theme and the scenario/location/character.
4) Participants create 1 or many 15-24 second bits of music/songs/noises... and now VIDEO.
5) Write to me WOLFKIER(at)GMAIL(dot)COM with your proposal for your “bit”. Some lyrics, an idea, a style, you want to pursue or about some little video snippets you might have/want to take, whatever. Any of this can be on point or tangential. Just open up some give/take.
6) I write back, given I'll be hearing from everyone in a slowly evolving scenario, and say, go for it, or can you tweak this or that a little, or if you need some prompting I'll let you know what would be good to have as the jigsaw puzzle pieces come in and I slowly wrap my head around what I have/want/wish/would like to try.
7) You can tell me too if you'd like to do more than just one 15-24second bit and I might suggest something more given your style/enthusiasm etc.
8) Because video has become a thing it would be great to take full advantage of the diversity of world locations of the participants & have some imagery from you, either related to your bit, or something that seems even vaguely relevant, or even not but just a cool little something you saw in the field. So plesase send me interesting little local captures. GIMME15 works as much by design as by osmosis and chance, so have at it.
9) Forgive me if I'm brief, maybe sound a little demanding , not only am I laboring to make sense of the flood of information that's coming in, I'm dealing with some pretty horrible health stuff right now. I love you, I respect you, I'm grateful for your input to make these things truly “of this moment” &amazing.
10) ask anything. Thx.

@wolfkier

Thanks all of you for chiming in enthusiastically. All veterans, each in your own way super talented, ,and all returned for another tour of duty. Proof positive for any "GIMME15curious" folks that not only is it survivable, but that they'll want to do it again! :)

Everyone is welcome. The more, indeed, the merrier (and richer) this will be.

Looking forward to contact from all of you with some initial ideas to spitball into another super special something we can all be proud of.

I was delighted to see that there are already several "bits" and "ideas" in my inbox which I shall attend to - sort, catalog, begin to interalise,and respond to, presently. .

Please try to use the email subject line format : GIMME15finder YOURNAME so I can keep this project seperate from other business I might have with you or otherwise.

Remember too to keep in mind the video snippets, curios, and that I'm gonna need a few people to do some rabbit hole research, text scripting, and voice overs.

So... Where does our Hank, 10 years a widower, emotionally crippled, and one of few people who stared at "what's on the end of kerouac's fork" and survived, start looking for "Love" in our Nome, Alaska. A place with "no roads leading there, and no roads leading back"?

And where does he end? A possible answer is forming in my head... but I'm gonna let that stew for a while.

I think we can safely say that GIMME15finder officially has a heartbeat! :)

I’m in and I sent you my idea :)

[avatar]

Hooray. I am absolutely always in. I’ll send you a first idea and await orders.

[avatar]

Hi Wolf! I can give it another shot! Let me know what is needed. Thank you!

@wolfkier

And then we were 10! Welcome aboard @intoyourlight @nancycunning & @katestantonsings

What an incredible collection of talent we have already collected. I'm preparing myself for this to be the best GIMME15 yet.

Everyone is welcome to join. it can be as small a contribution as a voice over, some research, some video (taking, editing, researching), some script development editing or other behind the scenes busy work. And/or, of course, one or multiple bits of 15-24 second musical magic.

@katestantonsings Thanks so much for joining in another GIMME15,and your offer to be open to suggestion. Stuff is alrady coming in. Give me a few days to get a feel for what I'm getting, where it's going, and what I think might make the best way to include your unique and peculiar talents! :)

@wolfkier

Anybody else want to join the terrific 10 on this monster effort? All welcome.

@berty38

I'm late to the party. I could join, but I don't have any ideas yet. If I don't think of anything soon, I can just wait for the next one.

[avatar]
@wolfkier

@berty38 welcome aboard, fellow GIMME15 veteran. Not late at all. This has only been a proposed "thing" for less than a week. Please email me at your convenience. I have some pointed and general ideas that you might run with. The above outline is very very vauge and much more specific focuses are fast developing.

Welcome aboard to our @berni1954 as well, I hope you've found your way into the new site. We've missed you.

Now we are 12!

This project is open to all, with no limits! Leave a note on the forum and we'll get everyone started on something. And there's lots of somethings in this one already LOL.

@lowhum

Sure, I would like to do this!

[avatar]
@wolfkier

@lowhum welcome!

Now we are 13.

Hoping for a several (many) more participants. Everyone welcome, have a think about who else you might invite . Every early "bit" that's coming in seems to suggest parallel abstract ideas that I'd love to tease out with any willing adventurous souls :). There's no rush so it's never to late for newcomers to enter the fray, and there's no limit to how much any participant can contribute.
But, please be sure to keep in close contact with me so any effort you put into this can be kept in tune with the internal logic/narrative that's evolving in my daily re-scrambled and re-booted brain.

I'm really excited about this one. It's alive and growing way beyond the vague outline in the top posts.

Hugs to all. Thanks for your time, efforts, talent and good will.

Bump: Anybody else want to join with 13 of our best and make this GIMME15 the best one yet?

[avatar]

@wolfkier Hey Wolf, thanks for the warm welcome to 50/90! How could I resist your gentle invitation to stop by and have a listen at what you're doing over here. I must say ... it looks like so much chaos and craziness ... sooo ... why, of course, I'm in. 😄

[avatar]

Regretfully I have to announce that I'm pulling the plug on GIMME15finder.
The music I've been sent so far by several of you is incredible, and the results I expected from the finished piece had to be incredible, but right now I"m just not up to that goal on so many levels, conceptually, emotionally, physically. I'm sorry. But better I fail now than push forward and fail the final result (with so much great talent represented) which I consider unacceptable. The last two took an entire month of daily work on my part and I can't imagine a month of such work ahead of me under the current circumstances. It would be a chore that I didn't have my heart, mind, or spirit in, and so a miserable experience with an unsatisfying result for all..
If you've done something for it already, I encourage you to develop it into something longer, or share it with our friends here as is. There are some amazing things that need to be heard. If you're working on something right now, either put it aside, sorry, or develop it with a view to share it separately.
I still hope to complete the cycle of 15 GIMME15s, we have 5 now, so I'm not abandoning the idea totally. You'll know when the next one cranks up and I hope you'll all be there for it.
Thank you all for your goodwill and participation.
Again, sincerest apologies, my GIMME15 friends. Be sure, we will ride again!

Not a problem, as I said on your profile - didn’t think to post here - lol! Rest up, my friend!

[avatar]

No worries, Wolf!! Rest is paramount. You have my email dear friend ;)

[avatar]

Wolf! You have done such a mighty and marvelous job on these and a break from them to tend to your own work and self-care is not only understood but fully and completely supported by me! This is a space for fun! It is hopefully here to help us all have a space to nurture our creative selves and to connect that part of ourselves with others wanting to support one another on our creative travels. To nurture oneself also means to care for oneself! So hats off to you for making the decision you needed to!

Wishing you the time and space to navigate all of the things on your plate and to embrace the best in yourself on a journey to be well as you can be in respect to all dimensions of yourself and your life!

Take all the rest you need. We can always do this another time!
