  • Image Inspired Dare #11

    Ok, the image for challenge #11 as supplied by magnesson:





    The Rules:

    1. There are no restrictions as to how the track is created. All sound sources and processing methods are allowed as long as you have the rights to use them (ie. no sampling of copyrighted tracks, use only samples and recordings you've created or have the rights to etc).

    2. The image is only an inspiration, you do not have to use it to generate any sounds (in an application such as Metasynth)

    3. The challenge is open for one month. If you're a little late and the thread is still open then please post away or PM me (GaryG); this is a fun challenge and entries are more important than the deadline.

    4. Submissions should be uploaded to a place available for all AO members. Links should be posted in thread dedicated to the given round. Please, do not use hosting with countdown, CAPTCHA and other obstacles.

    5. Winner of contest is chosen by votes cast by AO members.

    6. Winner of contest chooses the image for next contest. Photos, digital artwork, pencil sketches... All acceptable. The image can be hosted at Ambient Online or on a site such as Imgur if you feel a high quality copy is preferable.

    7. Participants are encouraged to discuss their methods for the benefit of the community.


    Entries should be submitted by midnight UTC on Saturday 14th May.

    Best of luck...

        Dämmerung (Twilight)

        here is my entry



        I processed white noise through 2CAudio's Kaleidoscope using this picture and the microtonal scale xenharmonic.wikispaces.com/33ed4
        Then I added spoken words using text passages from de.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C3%A4mmerung and processed them through Kaleidoscope too.

        I didn't use any LFO or other FX. I only used one delay on the dry voice and one reverb on the master bus.
        After mixing in Bitwig I put the result into Reason to lower the stereo width of the low frequencies and to do some subtle overall EQ and panning corrections.

                Here's my entry



                Nothing too complicated in terms of the production, please feel free to ask if you have any questions! :-)

                I've used a Waldorf blofeld for the pads, Valhalla Shimmer for the reverb, an Arturia Microbrute for the bass.

                Beautiful photograph Magnusson!

                  I like it, very cool process! I completely agree with what Dave Dorgan commented on soundcloud, the spoken words makes it interesting since I don't understand a word, it removes any context which suits it very well! :-)

                    the day the saucers came part one


                    i got a little tricky with this one first track used a Squire Jazzmaster with prepared strings ( allen wrenches, screw drivers, chop sticks, etc.) ran through industrialecetric Rm-1n, into death by audio sound wave breakdown into a catalina bread sabbra kadabra into pro co rat into noise maker effects "isn't anything" into death by audio ghost echo into a vox delay lab into strymon big sky into EHX lp2ube into alesis mircoverb 4 into tascam dp0008

                    second track one prepared Palir imperial into EHX freeze pedal into earthquaker devices disaster transporting strymon blue sky into industrialecetric RM-1n into roland space echo into vox delay lab into strymon big sky into EHX lpb2ube into alesis mircoverb4 into tascam dp008

                    hope you like i had fun experimenting with it and may get disqualified because its more experimental noise then ambient stick around for the days the saucers came part two!!!!!!

                        I found myself inspired to portray what happens after the sun has set, when darkness reigns and nocturnal things emerge...




                        Not a very sophisticated or complex method this time around. I took the beginning and end from a track I was working on, pitched them down and stretched them with Audacity's simple version of Paulstretch, as well as applying multiple passes of heavy reverb at ridiculous levels. Ended up with some good old Nordic dark ambient!

                        (Oh, and then forgot to post this last night, after previewing it... )

                          part two "experimentation on my fragile mind and body"


                          the day the saucers came part two "experimentation on my fragile mind and body"
                          five tracks four ran with a squire jaguar tune to 432HZ open C ran through EHX FREEZE into industrial eccentric RN-1N into earth quaker devices afterneath into strymon blue sky into Vox delay lab into strymon big sky into EHX LB2ube into alesis mircoverb4 recorded on tascam dp008 further manipulated with Adobe Audition CC
                          the fifth track i broke out the Korg Microkorg which i have not used in 4 years ran the mention effects above

                          it makes me so happy to see all the participation from my photograph, i have many more and would love to get this chance again

                            A simple drone from the archive (guitar and valhalla verb) on one track.

                            Guitar though a simple Guitar Rig patch (Twin style amp with reverb and trem) then a dash of NastyDLA.

                              My submission: https://soundcloud.com/graham-mcarth...aths-out-grabe

                              This track was a short live improvised piece played tonight at home to a very disinterested and unresponsive audience of two people, two cats and a dog. There were two dogs, but she woke up and left the room 30 seconds into the performance.
                              Not much to say about this other than I played around with some settings on one of the many synths in Logic. Added some delay, reverb and spreader (whatever that is) filters and took my chances.
                              At least it was fun.

                              When I played it back the poem Jabberwocky came to mind as did the image dare. The first part has the sun happily enjoying the end of the day while the night begins to take over and the wee night nasties come out into the twilight and fade away under the blanket of night.

                              My apologies to Lewis Carroll.
