#29: Homework- Make Music with Unusual Sound Sources
6 days ago
We all strive for the best gear, highest quality samples... but lets not forget that you can make beautiful music from unexpected places. This episode is all about challenging yourself to create music from sources you wouldn't normally think you could.
You have a homework assignment! Create some music from a source or sound that you wouldn't normally use. Maybe it's a terrible preset, an old toy, a piece of wood that vibrates in a funny way... it doesn't matter. Just challenge yourself to make music from an unusual sound source.
Post your results at the Music Production Podcast Facebook page. My piece is there too.
I hope you enjoy this talk and it gives you inspiration to make music in new ways!
