Beat Battle 27: Donald Sings the Blues

Quote:
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.

THE DEADLINES

Each battle takes place over two weeks, starting on a Friday. Submissions close and votes open at 23:59 on the 11th day (tuesday). Voting closes at 23:59 on the 13th day (thursday). The winner then becomes the Host, and has until 23:59 on the 14th day (friday) to post a new thread with a new sample set and new rules.

All times are UTC.

GREETINGS HUMANOIDS

Welcome to the 27th beat battle.

As you can see, the title of this beat battle is "Donald Sings the Blues." This is referring to the first rule:

1. You must take a sample of Donald Trump speaking and pitch it around to create melodic content. I guess melodic content means there are at least a few notes.

2. You have to make it PRETTY. Pretend you just brought a person you are developing feelings for to your room for the first time, and they just asked you "Why do you have so many keyboards?" No explanation will do, you have to show them something eye wateringly beautiful.

3. Use some clicky "micro" percussion. A great example is the Bjork track "cacoon." Google that ish.

Other than that, go to town.. any style, tempo..



DEADLINES: (I just realized I screwed up the schedule.. oops)

lets go til... the 9th? And we'll try to get voting wrapped up by the 11th and maybe get a new one up that day.



btw, at first I thought this subject might be too USA-centric, but then I decided that making fun of Donald Trump surely has universal appeal.

Also, I accidentally recorded my guitar with a hi-pass filter on it.. Sorrrry. Never recorded myself warming up before. My ADD is worse than I thought :/

The fourth rule is fine imo, as well as there being a fourth rule, I'm not that stringent.

Re: Beat Battle 27: Donald Sings the Blues

There's a lot of Donald online. I'm trying to decide between modern, political Donald or some of his older, much weirder stuff. I was hoping to find him singing without music in the background, but I couldn't find that. I did find one musical number by the Donald, though. Strange guy.

Re: Beat Battle 27: Donald Sings the Blues

nice.. really digging for Donald samples that's what I want to hear.

I haven't started yet :/ too many things that aren't making music going on.

I will have one tho.. mark my words.

I recorded some stuff yesterday, and ended up doing something totally different, not bb related. Good times anyways!
