April 22nd was Earth Day, and the folks over at the Ableton Blog brought The Climate Soundtrack to our attention:
"The Climate Soundtrack is a music project that brought together artists, scientists and two global activist networks to celebrate the sounds of the earth in the name of conservation. The result was a sample pack made from the Greenpeace sound library and a 41-track compilation featuring music from around the world – plus funds donated to local, frontline organizations doing crucial work in areas already suffering the effects of the climate crisis."
Read more about the project over on the Ableton blog, and download the Sample Pack from DJs 4 Climate Action here.
The sample pack is huge, so this week, the challenge is to make a track of approx. 2 minutes long using ONLY sounds from the pack.
Submit your track to our Google Drive here by 20:30 Berlin time.
Check out what we made!
