Éclat: Part 57

Avatar eclatcrew | November 10, 2020

Hello, and how do you do? May I take the liberty of introducing you to my good friend, Freesound.org?

Freesound is an incredible archive, aiming to create a huge collaborative database of audio snippets, samples, recordings, and all sorts of bleeps, ... released under Creative Commons licenses that allow their reuse. Plus, their search matrix can be really fun to use, allowing you to combine tags in any way you might like... There's even a 'Random Sound Of The Day' if you want somewhere really simple to start!

Tonight we're using a sound I found by combining 'atmospheric', 'orchestra' and 'strings'. You can download it from freesound.org by creating your own account, or for quick access, you can get it from WeTransfer here. You can use any other sounds or synths that you want to make a track of up to 2 minutes long!

In the interests of the health and safety of all our producers, we are moving our meet-ups exclusively online until further notice.

The event will run like this:

18:00: Join us on a Zoom call to meet, learn about the night’s challenge, and to meet the other producers who'll be working alongside you.
18:30 - 20:30: Making Time! Everyone has two hours to make a track of up to 2 minutes long. The Zoom call will be kept open throughout, so you can reach out for help and assistance; we’ll be using the breakout rooms feature so that we can help you with your software remotely, if you have questions.
20:30: Time to send us your track! Email your track to eclatcrewberlin [at] gmail [dot] com so that I can collect all the tracks in one place
21:00: Listening time! Everyone rejoins the Zoom call, we reconnect and chat about the samples, and listen to the things we made.

If you would like to join us in the online meetup, please email us at eclatcrewberlin [at] gmail [dot] com to receive the link to the Zoom call. If you have any trouble joining us on Zoom, please email us at the address above and we'll do our best to help you!
