Summary, a short version:
This is a collaborative process for improvisers who are at a distance from each other. The process involves the sharing of sound files via the internet. The content is free improvised music using the music system `System 50:50`. The files are assembled in layers, aka multitrack, in audacity then mixed down to a stereo track.
This is a sound-on-sound process.
The fake-quartet follows a similar pathway to the original `50;50 online` project now called Sound on sound The Octet, except there are only two people, two players, each player produces two tracks resulting in a collation of four tracks. It is a fake-quartet.
