    Dare 28 - Some more unnusual sound sources...- Part 2


    So... by now we have already accummulated a considerable number of sounds tagged for dare-28.
    It will come as no surprise to most of you that now I ask you to create a music piece.

    The surprise, however, will be that the music piece that is sellected as the winner will be played on an online radio station!

    RULES:
    1) music piece must contain sounds that have been submitted for dare-28. - Can contain other sounds and use instruments (recorded or virtual) but the dare-28 sounds must be an important part of the music piece itself.
    2) Lenght: must be between 2 and 4 min.
    3) Submission: upload your piece in a suitable place (e.g. Soundcloud) and give adequate credit for all samples used. Post on this thread with a link.
    4) EDIT: Submission deadline extended to Sunday 21 Sep 2014, 23:00 GMT
    5) Voting and winning: voting will start after submissions close. Detailed voting rules will be posted at this time, but you can expect that those who have submitted a piece will be required to vote.
    6) Results and winner: will be announced at the end of the voting period. The voting rules (see point above) will explain how this will work.

    In the meantime, feel free to continue to upload sounds for dare-28. That part of the dare never expires.

    For questions or comments see use the separate thread:
    http://www.freesound.org/forum/dare-the-community/35371/?page=1#post75982
    Please only post your submissions on this thread.

    I want to believe.

    what a perfect way to spend the afternoon, destroying the airwaves in my house...
    https://soundcloud.com/chalkwoman/xoenla ... it's noisey (obviously)

    Freesound.org Dare 28 Pt. 2, make a song from dare 28 pt. 1 samples
    dare 28 samples used:
    http://www.freesound.org/people/cajo/sounds/244171/
    Effects: cut, time stretched, pitch shifted, bit crusher effect, EQ
    http://www.freesound.org/people/AlienXXX/sounds/242972/
    Effects: cut, time stretched, EQ
    http://www.freesound.org/people/klankbeeld/sounds/243072/
    Effects: cut, time stretched, pitch shifted, bit crusher effect, EQ

    Non-dare 28 sounds
    http://www.freesound.org/people/RTB45/sounds/197567/
    Effects: cut, looped, time stretched, slowed down 10,000 %, Pitch Shifted, EQ
    http://www.freesound.org/people/Phinster/sounds/243046/
    Effects: cut, Looped, time stretched

    Anyways this was a really unique dare, and I wanted to focus on manual distortion of the sounds, specifically with frequency and time, as radio waves technically last forever.. ... Big thanks to AlienXXX for the Dare, and the amount of time that goes into moderating them!!

    Takk du!!

    My turn. I made “Its Never Quiet(dare-2cool”.
    https://soundcloud.com/gis_sweden/its-never-quietdare-28

    >> EDIT #1: Wait! I have to take the track down for editing... Sorry sad
    >> EDIT #2: Now Its on Soundcoud again smile

    I used the following sounds.
    - “radio07.flac” by cajo
    https://www.freesound.org/people/cajo/sounds/244156/
    - “radio19.flac” by cajo
    https://www.freesound.org/people/cajo/sounds/244170/
    Track “Main sample” and inspiration.
    I use the first 33s, “part 1 and 2”
    - “websdr_recording_2014-07-12T19-55-42Z_9940_11.wav” by AlienXXX
    https://www.freesound.org/people/AlienXXX/sounds/244012/
    - “websdr_recording_2014-07-12T19-55-42Z_9940_5.wav” by AlienXXX
    https://www.freesound.org/people/AlienXXX/sounds/243827/
    - “Thunderstorm interference” around 90khz wierd tunning.wav by AlienXXX
    https://www.freesound.org/people/AlienXXX/sounds/242999/
    I use the first 1,6s and at a lower pitch
    - My own dare-28 sample “distantvoice_16m-band_dare-28”.
    https://www.freesound.org/people/gis_sweden/sounds/244678/

    I generated a 55Hz (A) bass tone Audacity.
    Made a pad sound in NanoStudio and used the 808 drum kit.
    To make my track I used NanoStudio. It’s the 2nd song I make with it…
    I tried to keep the dare-28 samples unedited. Applied fx are NanoStudio standard fx.

    Deep Noise In 116bpm.

    New to this! It' true...

    so let me say only that I like this composition very much!
    rhythm, structure and all the rest of it

    Here's my go at it:

    https://soundcloud.com/copyc4t/attack-of-the-drones

    I couldn't help making a pun on "Attack of the Clones" and the fact that the harmonic part is a drone, but the intent was overall quite serious.

    With a little help of a few previously uploaded sounds of mine (honorable mention for luckylittleraven as the helicopter came from one of her sounds, http://www.freesound.org/people/luckylittleraven/sounds/223069/)
    here's the list of the sounds used in this:

    Thank you AlienXXX, kb7clx, klankbeeld and thatjeffcarter for those inspiring sources.
    I realize this is hardly musical, so feel free to disqualify it!

    Yes. Until the closing date you can change it.
    But please, only one entry per person.
    So edit you original post to point to the new entry. OK?

    I want to believe.

    @Cannonrayj,
    Not sure if I misunderstood your question.
    If not relevant for the dare, then all you need is cajo's permission. Which he gave you on the post above.

    If you plan to make the new piece your entry to the Dare-28, you can. But only 1 submission per person.

    I want to believe.

    @cajo, It is where I make the sound into a series of textures that are completely different from the original sound.
    Like the remix I did of 'The Dø, Dust it Off' https://soundcloud.com/chalkwoman/the-d-dust-it-off-chalk-woman

    @alienxxx I just want to do it for the sake of doing it! I'm very satisfied with my entry for the dare.

    I've been quite lucky with finding the kind of material I was looking for, also thanks to the Tekniska museet.

    well done Paolo!
    high quality video edit, and beautiful photos and footage / perfect sinc with audio.

    now forgive me this OT: wish to express my opinion about warfare, like I did in this video (no pub no money-for-a-clic, only as a declaration):
