Listen out for these sounds in Walking In Water:
It is ‘opening my studio door’ after I haven’t been able to be there for two months.Roel Knappstein
One is of a spring day in France in early June. Nathalie and I went for a walk and had a rest beside a pond with frogs.Roel Knappstein with Nathalie Brans
Fave is midnight the cat, our wee guy who we recently lost to a car during covid:(Sandy Carson and Karen Skloss
He was quite the pianist. We’d love it if that was used somehow! That makes us so happy every time we watch it.
Here’s a wee thing I made today in my head bubble. Hope it suits, can’t remember if you needed a certain length. Emily Scott
That was fun! So nice to have a play and make something with no parameters, must do that more often, I’d probably get quite a lot done that way.
here we go, two original recordings of noise (at day and at night) in the middle of the Norwegian Sea / North Atlantic 🙂Jens Ewald
It was one the happiest moments and places I have been; I would sit there for hours and tune in—in a way.
Hope you like them and they provide fun for VC, chopping up, filters, or just leaving them as they are.
Here are a bunch of Uma sounds for you. Some great purring and chirping, (my fav is on Uma 2.wav 1:04 – sounds like an Ewok).Bobby Perman (and Becki Crossley)
I caught some wood pigeons in the spring blossoms of Balgay Cemetary overlooking Invergowrie Bay. Andrew Wasylyk
Listen out for these sounds in Woosy Cudda:
I hope your Wednesday has been going well.
I have just been working on some music for your project.
Firstly a slightly boring computer related story
A few weeks my 2014 MacBook Pro stopped working / I took it over to Apple and they helped the poor old thing out.
They installed a new operating system but with no garage band which I normally use for music.
I think if I had installed a new version it would have melted it.
I was going to send over some music I had made in the summertime.
Anyway today I was feeling the vibes of some kind and decided to make some improvised music.
So this afternoon recording on my iPad using Voice Memo / I made 4 pieces of music/sound for you.
These pieces were made with:
Casio SK-1 Keyboard
Synthesizer Bass Pedal
Recorded live in downtown Dunfermline on Wednesday afternoon.
I hope you can access the sound files / and that you can use them in someway for the project?
I love the way my 5-year-old daughter Nina uses an iPad app called SoundForest to make beats. I sampled one of her beats as part of the drums and sub bass for this track
Recordings of Bo the dog from Susie Brown
Also, this is a set of recordings I made in the Pacific Northwest a few years ago that I love – it’s an accidental aeolian harp that was made out of some fishing line that was strung up on a dock. It was super windy and it was making a completely amazing noise! I was so excited by it, and I still love listening to it.
Yann Seznec (with Kristina Seznec)
It seemed like a simple request, but the more I thought about it, the harder it became to think of a sound that made me feel happy.
So I took the complete opposite route of digging inside and did a finder search of my Hard Drive. I typed in “Happy” and an old, unfinished session came up with the word “happy” in the title.
I listened to it and it made me want to finish it, AND it made me happy. Here is a portion of the guitar track from it. I’m starting to remember how I started to write the song, and all the stuff I was doing at the time, and it makes me happy.
Yusuke Hama (Hamacide)
My dog doing his howl chat that he does to me when he wants his dinner.
I don’t really try to make music any more even though I do play about from time to time to escape from all of the visual stuff. Happiness isn’t necessarily in the sound but in the process of pressing keys and pushing buttons.
It’s the guinea pigs, Winnie and Chester. Having a snuffle around and a nibble.
