t is for "toy"

By Jason Nijjer on September 11, 2016 7:10 pm

Sadly I finally missed a weekly beat last week, too busy with work and life.  I almost missed it again this week, this one was put together while cleaning my daughter's playroom.  All sounds were recorded onto the ipad from her toys and then manipulated within the ipad.  Interesting that all the initial sounds had a happy child's toy sound, yet the track came out kind of tribal and dark.

Great track, definitely a tribal atmosphere.
And good work on the sample manipulation, which apps on the ipad are you using for this track?

Thanks, I recorded everything into the ipad from the built-in mic into adudioshare, from audioshare everything was edited and then copied into patterning, gadget, and auria to manipulate, sequence, and arrange.

Really cool how you used a common chore to get new source material smile  The main dropping percussive sound is some sweet ear candy smile
