Over 50 hours of Poet Laureate Infinity, with a total of 7 parts! LISTEN HERE: Poet laureate infinity (50 hours+) - YouTube So what is this? This is just a few ways to explain it: "Canibus introduced Poet Laurete Infinity in 2007. For those who aren't aware, it was 5 different 200 bar verses. For a total of thousand bars, that was displayed on a virtual mixing board online. Essentially, you would press play, and all 5 sets of 200 bars would play at once, with 4 muted. You could at any time, mute one, and unmute a different one. And do this every single bar, and no matter what, they would flow to make a new Rhyme. It was designed to make "infinite" rhymes, as there were countless different mixes that could be created. He then utilized his fanbase, by allowing them to submit mixes, actually encourage them to make different mixes. His aspiring producers/canibus fans then went so far with it, that they chopped up every word from the 1000 bar project, and esssentially pierce them back together, making new rhymes. The problem with this, is that it can sound awful with chopped words put together.. Unless someone like Oobe decides to get involved ofcourse..by mixing it so smooth you can't tell the difference between a studio recorded verse or a chopped mix by fans. "Infinite Rhyming consists of several verses, called layers, that share the exact same rhyme scheme and flow. By putting each layer into a separate channel of a mixer, it gives the user the ability to switch between layers seamlessly, while still maintaining a coherent rhyme structure, content, rhythm and flow. This allows users to create their own songs, or mixes, in an infinite number of ways. Layer 1, Mixer Channel 1: I spit rhymes for your pleasure/ You listen at your leisure/ I only record it once you listen to it forever/ Layer 2, Mixer Channel 2: I spit at a thousand KIPS, kilo tonnes of pressure/ Every letter is measured/ in such a way you will remember/ _________________________________________________________________ "Compare/listen to all forms of music & you'll more than likely end up continuing to listen to those which satisfy your tastes. Everyone listens to what they "like" & some even say that's what's great about music is becuz you have different types of music for everyone to find something they like. This has been the standard for music & what Canibus did was evolve that standard from the concept of subjectivity into an objective form meaning not only is music some thing for the "listener" to listen to, but also to "create" music for himself w/o the talent behind the process). Regardless of what Canibus says initially on one of these new songs, whether you agree/like/dislike it or not, the point is to RE-initialize it to how you would want it. Don't just listen to the WORDS & attempt to absorb their meanings, look at their structure, why that particular structure relating to that particular couplet, bar; WHY IS IT GOOD MUSIC, how can you justify the claim that you think it is good/bad w/o understanding the process behind it." ________________________________________________________________ "Infinity is a relational concept; relationships such as differences in size, amount, time and many other quantifiable things. I will say that time is the idea that events occur one after another. Infinity creates two never-ending sides to time's before and after process. Thinking about this for not long will render a certain quality to events and things, especially music. What would you do? Continue to make things which exist on a linear timeline? No true artist is ever creating along a linear timeline because they are expressing their work naturally, and not always under the influence of daily time. All we see are rap track starting at 0;00 and ending after some time. Human language and rap is an expandable system of communication. Expandable like the arms of an octopus or threads woven in many directions. I just so happen to think its cool that Canibus is spending his time making a poem which alters itself incidentally in sound, meaning, story, wordplay, etc. when it is operated. Starting with basic time and infinity we have come to understand something which is not basic."
