musical sketchbook 10

I grabbed the Rock Band mic tonight and did some drum sampling for today’s sketch, whacking things with other things, recording the results, and turning them in to a Hydrogen drum kit. Most of the sounds were just a result of me flicking or running my fingers across the metal frame of a pedestal fan, but the kick/tom sound is me hitting myself in the head with an empty 600mL Sprite bottle.

I tried hitting the Sprite bottle with a bunch of other things, but it just sounded flat — I couldn’t get that nice deep sound with anything other than my forehead. I’m not sure what that says about my head, but it’s probably bad.
