This morning I was hanging laundry to dry outdoors in my back yard and heard an interesting mix of sounds: the birds in the air were quite loud, and this was mixing in with the staccato nail gun rhythm of roofers working on a new house a block or two away. I went back inside and grabbed my Zoom H1 to capture a minute or so and I thought I might be able to use it with this week's junto.
After editing the field recording, I listened to the pre-existing tracks and chose a 30 second segment in the first half of "Controlled Burn".
I still use Sony Acid as my main DAW. I have for over a decade. Ended up loading 18 instances of the field recording and 21 of the sample of Controlled Burn, so I had 39 tracks. On many of the instances I take the clip and "loop" it (it's not "looped" in the traditional sense in that it repeats) and then change the properties of the clip so that it's pitch shifted down an octave or two and then I stretch it out by changing the "number of beats" from whatever the default is (16, 24) to the max, which in both cases turned out to be 151. I don't have any grand plan, just whatever sounds pleasing to me. I employ the same sort of randomized approach to the arrangement.
