    Image Inspired Dare #19

    This time we have a simple composite of two images supplied by jvincion and ablaut.


    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 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 just over three weeks (to allow an extra weekend). 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 24th July 2017.

    A small request: To save excessive copying and pasting, please post entries in the format:

    artist name - track name
    link to your track (URL, soundcloud/hearthis embed etc...)

    comments or notes.


    lighthugger - as above

    Am I looking down from a countertop upon which a potato chip rests and seeing another dimension? How 'Inception-like'!
    Seems like a 2-part motif is called for....

    EDIT - I think that is a white rose petal on the countertop.

          That is definitely a white petal, tho it is actually from a cherry tree, on a stone that might be marble. I took it this spring here:

            I took the picture fairly literally... This is meant to represent the process by which even the humblest of small plants can crack open stone and concrete over time.

                ablaut - between sky and stone

                My track is in the "lowercase" style, the quiet minimalism I appreciate so much in Richard Chartier. I used a single Kontakt instrument of a bowed cymbal from Soundiron Cymbology, and played an improvisation emphasizing harmonics over a bass drone.

                  Didn't realize this was coming up so fast - good thing I checked the submission deadline!

                  Jason Vincion - Ascending Dimensions

                  It's a piece in D Major done with analog synth sounds ported to Reason and then run through an Audiobulb Ambient preset I found that I'm quite fond of. A little bandpassing to eliminate excessive frequencies, and voila!

         - audio.
         - photos.

                      I don't mind, Would rather have entries than stick to a strict deadline. Say Thursday midnight?

                        So here is mine:

                        I improvised in Reason using Parsec (an additive synth).
                        Then I ran the result through 2CAudio's Kaleidoscope using the image to process the sound and added feedback delay.
                        On this result I did the same again. So I ended up with 3 tracks I mixed down to the final result.

                              You are adding the actual URL, but you are supposed to use the track number, as shown under Share > Embed. For your track that is 335005868:
