Special submission for this week as got to do some fun recordings with my daughter Nirali (8 years old).  Main percussion/beat is recorded with an iphone of her hitting different objects and the floor with a pencil (her idea!).  These were then imported into ableton and chopped up, surprising what a nice kick drum can be made from hitting the floor with a pencil.  Hope everyone continues to stay healthy and safe, we have further shutdowns in our city, cases are continuing to climb.  Hope to catch up on some of your great music this week.

What a beautiful name, Nirali. Never heard it before. Children making music is definitely underrated.

Yes way to go Nirali, that is a beautiful name indeed. This is really neat. Great sounds ... that sub that drops in, YES! I love the "stop". Agree making music with kids underrated. They have fresh open minds, so precious.

Great stuff here!  I really dig capturing samples and using them for different purposes.  These are all great tones and the beat is very cool too.  Tiny elements remind me of the more interesting Fourtet stuff.

Great idea to collaborate with your daughter! Great percussive sounds. I like the sonic landscape with all the blippy elements, the inverted keys (i think?) and the vocal samples.

Awesome collaboration idea with your daughter.  The bass sounds so crisp and clean.  It cuts so nicely thru the mix with the percussion.  The "stop" samples were a nice touch too.  Nice work!
