PMusic: Open Compositions    
Consemble
Consemble (v.): to construct/assemble a composition; (n.) the product thereof
Consemble is an original, web-based Open Compositions venture launched by Chameleon Lectra on the 14th July 2007. It is ongoing.

A Consemble is a collection of sounds, assembled by a group of people, which are then played using random methods to create an everchanging, online listening experience.

YOU are invited to listen to the current Open Consemble Consemble: K and then email your own sounds - the ones you think ought to be included - to build this web-based, indeterminate PMusic composition.

Consemble mixer

Every contributor will be credited and the work will be available, for free, from this website. Anyone may take part - amateurs, professional composers, sound artists, non-musicians etc. - there is no age limit. You may, of course, just want to listen to the pieces as they progress.

From 2007 there have been an annual series of project licences (Consemble: A, Consemble: F etc.) - each with its own brief and specifications to guide you; the intention however is to be broad, welcoming and inclusive. Consemble can be understood as a sound art or music project.

Every person's contribution is equally important - each sound adds to, and changes the direction of, the Consemble.

Please bear in mind that this work will be available for free to all, including children (so no pornographic sounds etc.) and no copyrighted material—just your own music or sounds.

This project is still live with three current Consembles as deadlines have been extended - see below *
Consemble K is open to all (open for contribution)
Consemble H and J are by invitation
