Dishwasher drone
« on: February 15, 2015, 02:43:14 PM »

This is as close as I will come to making ambient music(or any music for that matter). 

My dishwasher was making weird noises the other day, kind of sounded like some alien playing a didgeridoo was trapped inside.  So I recorded it and then processed it using Paul's Extreme Sound Stretch.  And whaddya know it actually sounds pretty good.

The only other ambient track I ever made was about 30 years ago so I guess that means my next track will be released when I'm in my 80s.

I felt the original recording had a much better vibe to it :) Seriously, it was more interesting (to me), you have to watch that paul stretch thing, it can turn everything to 'brown' - as with paint mixing.

Pretty cool.

You know what would be awesome? If some of the musicians on here took this, tweaked it a bit more, leading to the creation of some kind of bizarre Hypnos Forum track featuring Dave's dishwasher.

I think that's a great idea - Dave ?

I was going to put a recording of my dishwasher on here as well, but my wife didn't want to be recorded! ;D ;D

The extent of my musical abilities is slowing down sounds or falling asleep with my head on my son's keyboard.  So if anyone wants to grab the track and mess with it, please go right ahead!

I want to do that. I wonder if Dave would mind making the original recording downloadable as a WAV file so I can take a shot.

Also, for a Paulstretch experiment, it wasn't bad. The program does leave a bad mark though especially on default settings.

The original track is now available for download.  It's only an mp3 cuz that's what it was originally recorded as.  Have at it.

Smashing, I shall have a go at this 're-mix competition' :)

I've pretty much just finished a mighty project, so I'II have the time to explore 'Live's superlative Sampler instrument with this drone.

I'm working on a little piece, too.  Should be fun.
