Musique concrète

Here’s a short electronic piece (“Snap”) I recently composed which is generated entirely from recordings I made of myself (snapping my fingers, tapping a desk, whistling, and singing a drone). I altered the speed of the recordings in Peak and mixed the four tracks in Pro Tools, using a few minimal effects (reverb and panning).

  1. Very nice! I love the ending. I wonder if you would mind if sometime I stole your rhythmic recordings and sampled them as part of an experimental modern country song…
