This round we had samples from long time member, Melbourne based Producer and self proclaimed Masterchef wannabe SPECTORAL. “I’ve submitted for you 2 vocal samples from an abandoned unfinished track 🙂 Feel free to destroy/warp/chop/use completely. Royalty free 100%, even if I end up finishing the song someday 🤷 but I have a feeling some of you here could smash the production so well I would want u to release it instead!“
In March we received a lovely warm piano piece from Danish producer Henry Toft. It was a real piano in a real room with all the reflections and harmonics that come along that. And also he provided a recording of a nice glass of sparkling water. Henry Toft has made some gorgeous music over the years under a variety of different names. Go have a listen if you get chance, there’s some beautiful and emotional stuff in there.
This round we had two samples provided by Kirigirisu Recordings from Tokyo, Japan. Our members created new work using these samples. There was a hardware noisebox synth whirring away, another droney hardware-synth with a more rhythmic rising tremolo quality, and some lovely guitar noodling. There is a guitar playing so this is a treat. All very lo-fi. Neil goes under the artist name Broken Shoulder and with his partner Kaoru runs an obscure and experimental tape/CDR label Kirigirisu Recordings from Tokyo, Japan.
