    Image Inspired Dare #15

    Image supplied by ARshawn:

    (click to enlarge)



    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 or Kaleidoscope)

    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 Wednesday 30th November.


    Best of luck!

    That picture is so awesome that I think it may even inspire me to create something...


    (just to explain for those who may not be aware - The reason I don't participate in the Image Inspired Dare thing is I struggle to be inspired by anything other than sounds. My problem, and I'm not entirely happy with it...)

              As to methods; Recorded me playing an M-Audio Venom synth (one take), then f*cked about with it using echo and reverb, bass enhancement and some EQ

                Sounding good YnotB (is that your real name?)

                Plenty of space between the bits, if you know what I mean. And it is giving out that "foreboding" feel that you get from the image.

                          Okay Peeps,

                          Here goes... This is my submission for Image Inspired Dare #15:-




                          I have called it maelstrom simply because that's what the image looks like to me.

                          I wanted the piece to have a calm beginning and ending so I used a field recording that I took a few years ago, up in Carlisle when we were on holiday at a place called Tranquil Otter. Nice place

                          Lots of corny stuff here but I still like it, I think.

                          I hope you lot do too :biggrin:


                          cheers

                          andy

                            I took a really old track of mine and did a one-take "improv" on it using ambient v.3 software. Tweaked with multi-tracking and a bit of delay and reverb. :biggrin:

                              "Traffic Analysis"

                              I used material left over from the One Sample Dare #46.


                              I found a lot of traffic-like sounds and mashed them together.


                              See this Ambient Online post for a description of the sample process:
