Éclat: Part 64

Avatar eclatcrew | March 23, 2021

This week's a lighthearted one - we're making beats using the incredible theme song from the 1970's cartoon Wonder Woman!

Download the track from WeTransfer here.

You'll also find a delightful Nathalie Capello "Éclat" vocal stab from last challenge's Vocal sample pack. Bonus points for anyone who gets it into their track!

This week the challenge is to use SOMETHING from this track, plus any other samples, synths or sounds that you like, to make a track of ± 2 minutes long. Often when you're working with a full track, it can be hard to isolate individual instruments, so maybe try finding a stab, a drum, or a vocal line that you like and see where it takes you! Check out some more tips on sampling below.

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 Sanni and hear about her musical journey, and the samples that she’s provided us with. (Please note this session requires prior signup at our Google Form.)
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!
