I did decide to leave off controllers, sequencers, amplifiers, microphones, preamps, compressors, equalizers and recording mediums to keep things simple. And to be clear, this isn't for a single track I am planning doing one recording for each person.
Dear Yesterday Nate: Why offer a sampler that's as old as your partner as an option!?!
"Le sigh" as young Asa would say.
First challenge is from Justin!
He makes a likely reference to John Cage's tacetorama 4'33". I haven't researched I Ching before, but it looks like there are some I Ching generators for my ipod touch. Hehe... so tacky and gross and fun and sacred.
And I never would have thought to put the cello with the Moog FreqBox pedal. Here's a video that might show why:
(Oooo... my second favorite cellist Jacqueline Du Pre just came on itunes shuffle. Nice!)
I'll probably cheat here use the Line6 DL4 as a looper. The Digitech Whammy pedal should work more musically with the FreqBox than the cello, but I'll give it all a shot.
Plus S612 and shakers.
The second challenge comes from the illustrious Chris Kennish. The newly purchased uke, DSI Evolver and shakers with the Moog delay pedal and S612. This should be a straightforward enough track, especially since it's only 23 seconds long.
The third challenge comes from me because I wanted to make sure an acoustic track got in there. Busted acoustic guitar, glockenspiel, drum set with brushes, and coronet with Ensoniq DP/2 (tons of options), Line6 and Moog delay pedals fed into the LP1.
I typically fuck around for two minutes and call it a track, so I wanted to push myself into doing something longer.
The fourth challenge comes from Miss Lauren. I can't wrap my head around what beatboxing, singing and cello through the Ensoniq DP/2 would sound like. Fortunately, it's only for 41 seconds!
And she chose everyone's favorite sampler. The one from Reagan's first term.
So, I'll start practicing the cello today. It's been a awfully long while and I never got that good in the first place.
