It’s been a really long time since I’ve done a Junto project, and I’m really glad to be back.
Here is my contribution for the week.
The loops came from tracks 10, 119 and 133 (goo.gl/szUFd2), which I picked via a random number generator.
I then listened to each track in full and cut out snippets that I thought were interesting. From those I created a bunch of loops per track and picked my few favorites.
In this piece there are a total of 10 different loops - 3 from Track 10, 4 from Track 119 and 3 from Track 133. Track 119 happened to have various mechanical and needle scratching sounds, so that’s where many of the rhythmic sounds are from. And I think track 133 was from a movie, so there is a snippet of dialog there too.
I started each of the loops all together, and then selectively muted certain chunks until I found something that sounded interesting. Then I arranged the top of the loops to be a little more rhythmical, but once I started a specific loop in one spot I let it go and did not move it in time any more, only muted or unmuted parts of it. Then I added some volume fades and panning to help differentiate the various tracks. I added some gentle compression and a verb tail at the end. There is no other processing.
