so I’ve decided to do a little experiment/musical project involving…well…you! If you want.
It’s a simple idea…probably been done before (plus I know it’s kind of like Matthew Herbert’s Mission Statement thing)…but basically; I want you to send me a short audio sample. The sample must be 5 seconds or less for example banging a pot, shouting at your neighbour or silently flipping your parents the bird (ideally with some noise going on in the background).
you see. I’m going to write a tune with all your samples.
a few rules
1.) I’d like it to be as analogue as possible…so don’t just send me the contents of your sample library from a future music cover mount dvd!
2.) no snippets of actual songs
3.) can’t be more than 5 seconds long…don’t want my inbox crashing
4.) please don’t send me any riffs or melodies. I want this to be as hard as possible.
5.) lastly, by sending me the samples you’re going to waive any-kind of rights you have…so another reason not to send me any killer riffs or melodies as you’re probably going to want to use these in your own music.
I will be keeping note of the samples I use, who they came from and what I did to them, so when the track is done I can name check you guys personally. (so when you do send me a sample, please write your name and where you come from i.e.: James Yuill, London, England or Peter Potato, Tokyo, Japan)
Please send the samples to me at
(oh and if you know anyone who would love to send me shiz then please let them know)
