  • Image Inspired Dare #12

    Ok, the image for challenge #12 as supplied by Organic Patterns (joint winner of #11, AmbientSketchbook was happy to use OPs image):


    N4Hk0ef_1.jpg





    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 Monday 4th July.


    Best of luck!

    Great image! But the accompanying text is unreadable on a dark-themed background.

          I find the connection inspiring between us humans. Beautiful photograph, I thought it was glass manufacture and I thought it was just like stars forming. The creation of an artificial sphere: A microcosm

            Seven Magic Wands



            Imagine seven magic wands that have to be "treated" in the fire to become real magic!

            This time I worked in Bitwig using Diva, Zebra, ACE and a sampled flute in Kontakt.
            Theme A is microtonal, theme B is western standard tuning.

            So enjoy!

              I'm using very tonal sounds obtained from paulstretch at the moment - this is made from small samples from several works, tempo-stretched, reverbed, reversed, delayed and put through ambient filters.

              To me the image summoned a sort of "Twilight of the Gods" feeling.

                    If you don't have Audacity, you might consider it. It's free (!), very versatile, has a load of effects and filters built in and their website will point you to lots more plugins.

                      I agree. Audacity is a wonderful piece of software, especially when you consider that it's free. I wonder whether Soundforge pricing/development will change now that it has been acquired by MAGIX.

                        You might try frohmage from Ohm Force: (it's free too!)
                        https://www.ohmforce.com/ViewProduct...mage#tutorials
                        You can download it from the page this links to and there is a video and an audio demo there as well. No stretching, but it does have a low pass & multiple band pass filters and distortion...and evolution. Fun stuff!

                          Here's my go at it:



                          Strum GS2 thru a bunch of Audifex fX. Kontakt Una corda. Zebra2. And more fX.

                            Can we extend the deadline a little? I'm still working on a track for this challenge, that I hope to finish within a day or two.
