Beat Battle 62 - "Stranger BB Things"

Beat Battle Sixty Two

Stranger BB Things


As the title suggests, this BB is a nod to the dark movies of the 80s..think John Carpenter and the current Netflix show "Stranger Things", which is set in the 80s..

All submissions must be dark and moody cinematic tracks..think Michael Mann's "The Keep" or John Carpenter's "The Fog"





THE RULES

  1. Folks can use one instance of one synth (..either hardware or software) in addition to the supplied samples.
  2. People can add one field recording of their own choice, if they wish.
  3. Everyone is free to use whatever FX they need or want to use..what matters is the end result: it must be a kick-ass cinematic track, using only the supplied samples, one synth and the one field recording of their choice.


THE SAMPLES

(Thanks going out to fellow-member [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
, kindly produced the samples for this BB..much thanks indeed!)



THE DEADLINES



Each battle takes place over two weeks, starting on a Saturday.
Submissions close and votes open at 23:59 on the 11th day Wednesday.

Voting closes at 23:59 on the 13th day Friday.

The winner then becomes the Host, and has until 23:59 on the 14th day Saturday to post a new thread with a new sample set and new rules.

THE TIMES HAVE CHANGED PEOPLE AND CHANGE IS GOOD!




All times are UTC.



THE CHALLENGE

The Battle Host must provide a sample set to be used for the battle. These samples are the only sound sources allowed, unless the Additional Rules for the battle state otherwise. The samples can be anything that the Battle Host has the right to distribute for non-commercial use.

The Battle Host must create three Additional Rules. These can allow or require additional sound sources, or impose any kind of new requirements.

THE CONTEST

Anyone can enter the Battle by posting a link to their entry in the Battle thread. Unless the Additional Rules state otherwise, any processing is allowed and the source samples need not be recognizable. The Host may disqualify any entry that does not meet either the general rules or the additional ones.

Once the submission deadline is reached, the winner is elected by posting votes in the same thread. Anyone is welcome to vote whether they participated or not. In case of a draw, the Host designates the winner between the submissions tied for first place.

Re: Beat Battle 62 - "Stranger BB Things"

How's it going, guys? Just checking in to see if anyone is actually sitting down to do one for this and, if so, how's it going for you?

So far, I've got a 5 1/2 min rough sketch with a beginning and an end I'm happy with, but sod all worth mentioning in between.

Still..plenty of time left to sort things out and come up with something worthwhile.

Re: Beat Battle 62 - "Stranger BB Things"

I have 2 or 3 elements that I'm playing with, each with one singular thing to do so far... I hope to add at least two or three more per voice, plus modulations/variations of each, then arrange it all in a Carpenter-esque way. That's the plan.

Cool..that's good to hear..the lack of chatter on here made me think I was the only one working on something for this.

I ran into a strange issue trying to edit a piece I pulled from one of the samples..the biggest one. I basically edited it in Audacity, wanting to get a deep male choir sound..and I did, but when I imported it into my daw using Alchemy, it plays like a bunch of little girls singing..and even if I drag it down on the piano roll, it just fades away to nothing as I move it down the scale. I wasted all of yesterday trying to get that bugger to do what I wanted, but couldn't. Can't for the life of me figure out what happened.

Re: Beat Battle 62 - "Stranger BB Things"

Shit I just realised I'm going to be away from my music computer from Friday to Wednesday (or Thursday) which kind of fucks my BB schedule up.

I'll try to get something up by tomorrow.

Hey Rajeev do you know where I could buy some designer jeans at knock-down prices? Also some cialis? Many thanks in advance.
