Due to overwhelming demand, the White Noise Competition is back!
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.
- 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.
To be confirmed, I'll be on honeymoon soonish, so I'll allow myself enough time and I'll update this later.
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...
