Songs from Scratch: What's this all about?
Minnesota Public Radio has a new project that explores the creative process, and you have a chance to participate.
We want to find out what happens when you ask a bunch of people to each compose a song using the same lyrics. We're calling it "Songs from Scratch."
We asked poet Stephen Burt to provide the lyrics. Then, we asked some professional musicians to write a song based on those lyrics. The Owls, Matt Wilson, and the Roe Family Singers are all contributing a song.
We'd also like to hear your songs. MPR's Cathy Wurzer talked with two of the project producers, Larissa Anderson and Sanden Totten, about how it will work.
