Ran a bit out of time here, so it's a bit on the short side. I love the fact that this does not actually contain any form of kick drum.

The noise in the background, if you listen very carefully, turns out to be the 3D printer I had running in the background today (not super easy to master with that) that I sampled with a handheld recorder and then did a bit of filtering for it to be not super obnoxious.

Great, evolving groove. Bass sound is awesome - strong enough to get you grooving but subtle enough to let the other elements shine through. love the 3D printer ambience!

That's dub alright! But I disagree there's no "form" of kick drum. The bass tom does serve that purpose, and does it pretty well!

Using your background noises for music is a cool idea, this must sound different to you than to anybody else, as you can identify the noise right away, right? I have a work computer running 24/7 behind me so I could do something similar, I guess. Or sample the neighbor's goddamn dog that won't shut up big_smile

Well done!

I've sampled this track under the CC Attribution Share Alike (BY-SA) license for my upcoming track “α - β - γ - δ - ε - ζ - η - θ - ι - κ - λ - μ - ν - ξ - ο - π - ρ - σ - ρ - π - ο - ξ - ν - μ - λ - κ - ι - θ - η - ζ - ε - δ - γ - β - α”.

If I am to re-sample “α - β - γ - δ - ε - ζ - η - θ - ι - κ - λ - μ - ν - ξ - ο - π - ρ - σ - ρ - π - ο - ξ - ν - μ - λ - κ - ι - θ - η - ζ - ε - δ - γ - β - α” again for future work, I will just put the attribution in the new track, as not to spam the comment field of this track with more than one comment, that is; unless you request me to also put it here again.

Sampled again for the 5th (and, most likely, final) time for next week track “phase 1”, concluding Q1.

This week's “alpha ⋰ omega ⋱ alpha” is a more compact iteration.

Thanks for your inspiring sound!
