7 Notes Music Challenge – by Serj Tankian (CCOO2)


A lot of people ask me where music comes from, where songs come from. I always firmly believe that they come from collective consciousness. That they don’t necessarily reside within an artist. Every song begins with an idea, a concept, or a sound. The challenge is simple. You got these 7 notes that you have to start with. So your first seven notes of your composition have to be these 7 notes. You can make a jazz song, a rock song, a symphony. Whatever type of music that you want. It can’t be longer than 3 minutes. The rest is up to you. I’m Serj Tankian and this is my challenge: I give you 7 notes. You give me your best.
