I make music (which you probably know if you linked here from my site), and anyone who makes music knows that just be cause you’re inspired doesn’t mean you’re going to end up with a complete song. Especially when creating experimental music, I start out making sounds that will make up a song and in the process I end up with pieces that either don’t fit in the context of a song or I feel I can’t live up to the greatness of that one single loop, hit or what have you. Other times, I don’t feel inspired at all, and in an attempt of pure futility I start making sounds in hope that I might be able to use them later. I used to toss out unused loops and sample sets but I then realized that some people (for whatever crazy reason) might want to get their hands on my unused sounds.
Here is a sample: Processed Beats 149MB
These are drum loops I created that didn’t go anywhere. I don’t remember how I made them and no longer have the projects they came from. Use them if you like.
My intention for this blog is to post fresh sounds with the purpose of showing others how to make them. One thing that I learned from a creative writing class I took in High School is to continue creating even if I’m not inspired. This is an exercise, an outlet to prevent creative stagnation. So it’s as useful for me as anyone that decides to use the sounds and information posted here.
In the future I will post tutorials, screen caps and perhaps videos detailing the process of making the sounds I post here. I also hope to have other artists guest post with their approaches to making music. Thanks ahead of time for any input you may have and I hope that you enjoy the noise.
