quick link: if you already know the score and just want the files click here.
the school at which i work is holding its achievement test(s) for incoming students.
this means i have little/nothing to do this week. so, i decided to develop a project.
the initial plan was to
- record some improvisation [mainly on electric guitar]
- sample the recordings
- from these samples, construct a few pieces
- add some live [probably acoustic] instruments and possibly some vocals
- release the results at the weekend
i was then going to offer up the multi-tracks for others to remix/adapt.
but, having completed steps 1 and 2, i realized it would be more interesting to offer up the samples now, allowing people to create something without having any finished version(s) to use for context…
i will still probably move on with the remaining steps [though, perhaps not by this weekend]
and if/when i record additional tracks, i will probably upload those too.
[if you’d like to be notified of such uploads, let me know]
for now, though,
here is the collection of 28 samples for you to play with:

if you want me to release/mention your adaptation(s) on this site,
that can be arranged [info in .zip file]…
- the audio files are in .wav format.
- the improvisations were performed to a click set at 108bpm.
- the majority are electric guitar; some are vocal.
- all were run through a yamaha emp100 effects processor.
- all of the samples are different, but some are iterations of the same thing.
