Oh, yes! I once had a record called endlesnessism, which started with
one track and was remixed in the second, by another artist. This was
then remixed by another artist and this was then...

A whole moving remix across an album, with loads of people involved.

It was pretty crap, actually, but a nice idea.

I'm sure we could do something good with collaboration like you
suggest. Off you go and start us off...

If each person is free to push however they want...

We might just end up with a whole family of songs rather than one.

I think it has, in some form, but I never got around to playing with it.
