Sounds Alive Session 4

 

 

Taking samples and making new music

 
Sesssion leaders Rohan and Joe have developed a unique recording process in which participants can explore various sound creation techniques while learning how to manipulate those sounds with ease. 
 
A great song was used as a source for samples within the last session was "Pardesiyon Se Pooch Pooch" from the film Kartavya by Sanjay Kapoor & Juhi Chawla
 
 
 
The group is now looking at developing their ideas into a collection of soundscapes recorded onto Sound Cloud. In terms of how creative Rohan and Joe would like to be, here's some inspiration from a piece of music called 'Timber' - made from six amplified wooden 2-by-4s!
