A melody written by a crowd

This is an experiment in crowd-sourced songwriting. A melody has been generated, note by note, in real-time, using the popular vote of the crowd.

UPDATE 29 August 2016: Thank you for your contribution. We have crowd-sourced a melody!
Our next experiment has begun. Help us write the lyrics for this song, one word at a time.

The chord structure of this song was pre-defined with C, G, Am, F repeated 18 times. It uses the structure: (Verse / Verse / Chorus / Verse / Chorus / Conclusion).

The song is currently in skeleton form. When performed by artists, they are at liberty to use their artistic interpretation. They may each decide where to use syncopation, how the bass line should sound and whether a gap between notes should be a held note or a pause.
