I got a call from Michael Bay himself and he NEEDS YOU to be an audio editor for his latest Transformers movie trailer Transformers XXIV: Electric Dysfunction. His sound guy has quit his job to pursue career in gardening so you must take his role because MB is considering to keep your family as hostages locked in THE CUBE for 2000 years if you decline this offer.
But MB is a pretty laid-back dude so after 18 beers he decided to scramble some audio he kept in his mom’s computer to help you out. But that audio is pretty rough, all very synthetic and completely random (even names make no sense). It probably was made by interns that worked for food on his previous projects but MB didn’t respond when I asked him about that.
MB also decided to come up with 3 rules for no reason (probably because he’s hungover and pissed) so here they are:
Use this sample pack only©. No extras so grease up your samplers. Stretch, layer, deconstruct. Obviously it won’t be very musical. There’s no genre limit but keep in mind you’re working on some modern trailer music and MB might get pissed if he hears some boy choir and latin drums. It’s all about bass drops and LOUD NOISES!
Keep it short (1-2min). Most of the time you start a track and can’t finish it because it needs to be longer. You don’t want to hear MB’s heavy breathing behind your back, trust me. So make it a compact piece, however you’re welcome to go beyond 2 minutes if you’re brave enough.
Avoid repetition (unlike MB movies). It must have constant changes. just like in some trailer music. Create short ideas then merge them together. It must keep evolving and transforming so ditch regular song structures if you must. It doesn’t need to make sense.
THE SAMPLE PACK:
**Submission deadline is OVER**
Now if we get enough of submissions it’s possible that I could merge them all into one long piece to fulfill the prophecy.
Have fun and let me know if this is a bad idea.
