WHITE NOISE "Competition" pt. 2

Due to overwhelming demand, the White Noise Competition is back!

Prizes
This is a real competition, all entries will be judged by a selected panel (2/3 incorruptible and morally outstanding members of the forums still to be confirmed) and you win fuck all.
That's all, the winner gets a virtual pat on his/her shoulder and limited internet fame for a hour or so.

No contract on Hyperdub, no release on super-limited cassette (with download code, of course), no exclusive release on 7", no hookers, no cocaine, no stardom.

Rules
- All the sounds you use in your must be based on white noise, but [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
will be tolerated;
- As long as the source of your sound is noise, anything is allowed, sampling, resampling, trisampling, overdistortion, filtering (yes, even filters that can self-oscillate can be used, thus allowing a few sine waves here and there [a.k.a: 808-style kicks and sub-basses]), stretching, whatever;
- Because of the "rule" above, you might be asked to detail your process, this is more for community interest than for the Spanish Inquisition (Nobody was expecting it);
- Tracks must be less than 6 minutes, the Internet has a short attention spam, (I'd be surprised if had read this far);
- As the book "White Noise" by Don DeLillo is maybe my favourite book ever and the title perfectly fits with the competition, you're allowed to record sentences from that book and use them in your track.
There is a caveat: the sentences must be read be either yourself or a close member of your family (father, mother, siblings, sons/daughters, spouse/partner), friends are not allowed. You don't have a family? Ask IDMf then.

Deadline
To be confirmed, I'll be on honeymoon soonish, so I'll allow myself enough time and I'll update this later.

Estimated Deadline
02/05/14

Submission
Post your track in the thread and I'll update the firs post, reserved for submissions.
You can post your work in progress, but only the final submission will be posted in the submission post, don't expect me to update your submission 20 times...

There might be more...

Interesting, I might do something on my ER1 just using the white noise oscs.

Re: WHITE NOISE "Competition" pt. 2

i want to go and filter some noise right now to create some sine waveforms to later be used for additive synthesis, but im wondering if im going too far? doing this means i can do anything short of recording actual sounds.
although, since theres no prize, maybe a tutorial on how to do it would be beneficial to the community.

I can modify the noise to point where it sounds nothing like white noise, if I demonstrate how I did it?

Interesting idea, but you know that could be cheating as then it would be based on sine waves, no longer noise. Using your process, sine made by filtering noise, you could also move in pure FM territory, would that still be noise based just because you originally filtered some noise?

In the end it's all up to the individual's judgement, but if you start thinking you've gone too far, maybe you have, really hard to say what is allowed and what isn't, most likely everything will be allowed as long as it can be clearly explained

I guess so, but then again, if you get to the point that you take a piece of noise, cut it into very tiny fragments and make a wavetable synth out of it, is it still noise based?

As a rule of a thumb, all is allowed as long as the noise is the main source, then again, if you doubt you're still within the very broad limits set by the rules, you might be.

Nothing is really set in stone in this competition, it's about the process more than the result, so it's up to each of us...

indeed.
it would be nice to keep the theme of the competition too.
maybe ill just use more gentle filtering to create tones, so that the noise is still audible within the tone

I'm fairly certain I've flagrantly ignored whatever rules this has except "start with white noise".

Re: WHITE NOISE "Competition" pt. 2



Alright, here's my track. Nothing amazing, but I like it.

If you really want to know how it happend, I'll write it out. For starters though, it was all done in Caustic and involved a modular synth, two PCM synths, two Vocoders, and two beat boxes. The vocals are me but de-tuned heavily.

Enjoy!

Sounds really cool, I'm a fan of Caustic as well.
Are the vocals from "White Noise"?

How did you create the metallic percussive sound starting around 2.26?
