Speedcomp 16: 10 samples / 30 minutes

Quick pointless music comp run as a Facebook event -
The aim is to make a song in 30 minutes from 10 samples, as seen in this boring video:
Details below…

SpeedComp 16 - Make a song in half and hour using only 10 samples without thinking too much.
Use only the 10 samples provided. Use whatever software or hardware you like.
Don’t use VSTIs etc.

The aim of Speedcomp is to do something interesting with the 10 samples in a limited time. Not transform the sounds into something totally unrecognisable. There is no time limit for tracks, don’t drone on for ages though. There are no winners.

When: The 10 Samples (chosen by for this round by https://soundcloud.com/noistruct_mandark) will be posted up on the FB event page 7:30 pm Friday 14th of August. After half an hour, post a soundcloud link of your effort back up on this page. All entries played on Thematics Radio 11pm the following evening followed by old mods etc.

Previous Comps here:
If you don’t have a soundcloud account, email entries to
speedcompentry@gmail.com at 8pm on the night.

Sample pack goes up 7:30pm AEST, if you’re overseas or busy just make something in half an hour when you can, post it up before 10pm the following evening and we’ll include it in the show.

This sounds like a ton of fun.

I’m in.

was a ton of fun, took part :))

Darn. It was 5:30AM my time. Oh well… At least I have tacos.

Thanks to all involved, here’s a recording of the radio show -
basically 35 different songs using the same 10 samples with us talking rubbish in between and a few mods at the end.

Look out for Speedcomp 17, Saturday 3rd of October.

Hi, here’s a link to the FB event page for the last ten Speedcomps and the sample packs.
The first few ones were pretty loosely organised and some of the people who entered have since taken down their tracks etc.

Would have liked to have gone to this one, in particualr the renoise workshop. Been a while since I went to This is not art. Out of the loop for a while, need to get back into it.
