Dark experiments in sampling, audio manipulation and black magic - Change the Noise is a compilation of six tracks made solely from two sample packs. The first sample pack is a collection of various resonances recorded from the Menai Suspension Bridge in Wales. The second sample pack, Organic Adventures, is various foley recorded in a forest by IDMf’ers Mischjok and FunkMasterBrown.
The sampled nature of the release makes for a different set of sounds than most will be used to. With conventional synthesis techniques prohibited, most of these songs eschew conventional melody in favour of interesting rhythms, textural sounds and a strong percussive element. Seriously, the kick drums made from these samples will happily punch a hole through your chest.
Change the Noise pushes towards the loud, aggressive side of the IDMf catalogue. Put your earphones away and forget about laptop speakers; set up your subs and turn up the volume - this one will shake your walls in a big bad way!
