Welcome to Éclat Crew IRL, back at House Of Music in Berlin!
We're delving into the depths of Bandcamp Sample Libraries again today to find our sounds... this week's sample pack comes from Free To Use Sounds, a creator who has literally hundreds of Sample Packs on bandcamp for a very nominal download fee for each.
This week we're using one of their free sample packs - 'Fire Sounds | Matches, Lighters, Gas Stoves Foley Sound Effects'.
Download for free from Bandcamp by putting '0' into the 'Name Your Price' field, and then clicking 'continue with zero and download to your computer' at the prompt.
This week's challenge is to make as much of your percussion and drums as possible out of this sample pack to make a track of ± 2 minutes. (If you need to use something else for your kick, that's totally okay, but try to limit ALL the rest of your drums to only sounds from this pack! All your other sounds - melodies, harmonies, etc, can be made from other samples or synths, and you can use any effects you like, and chop, mangle, and stretch the samples beyond being recognisable!
Upload your finished track to this Google Drive here by 9pm Berlin time for our live listening session!
