A Minor Theory

The Story

a-minor-theory-logoA Minor Theory was a musical project by “Vox” and “Spinmeister” who first met online on a now long gone remixing website, wrote and recorded 4 songs between December 2006 and February 2008 in a long distance internet collaboration and set them free to be remixed.

This page serves as a fond memory of those days and as a tribute to their musical friends from around the world who have remixed those songs.

A Minor Theory started as a fun side project for both of us to have a little nostalgic fling with 1980s inspired synth-pop. However since we had met online through remixing (at realworldremixed.com), and thus experienced the musical joy of remixing, we made remix packs (separate files – often called “musical stems” of the individual vocal and instrumental parts) of all of our material. Quite a few talented remixers took us up on the offer and it became clear very quickly, not only that some remixes were better than our originals, but that each remix took the original into a new and interesting musical place.

So we’re seeing our project defined by the remixes, more so than by our original versions and ourselves more as creators of musical sketches. Some of the remixes are amazing.

There’s no assumed business model here. All remixes packs are available under a creative commons license, which allow plenty of non-commercial exploitation.

We’ve since moved on, but if you’d like to have a go at remixing any of our 4 songs, the individual parts for our songs are still available at A Minor Theory on ccMixter.

FAQ

What happened to the old site?

We received a notification from our web host, that our web software would stop working on May 1st, 2013. We’re pretty busy, so a long software migration effort was not realistic to do. However, the memories – especially the musical one’s – are too good to let disappear, so we’ve made sure we saved all the music. It can now even play on mobile devices, so that’s an upgrade from the old site.
