Noise Sample Challenge
Your job is to take this short and very raw audio sample and make something interesting with it. There’s no genre restriction but try to create a full track or at least see how far you can go with it.

The sample itself is a random program shortcut of some desktop app (.lnk file format) that was imported as a raw data into Audacity. It’s harsh, heavy and it clips, you know it’s the good stuff.
The goal here is to encourage all of you to dig deep into sound design. Forget all rules. You’re open to do anything with it, put it into a wavetable synth, stretch, apply any effects, granulize, AM/FM synthesis… Remember: no other sound sources, just this short noise-glitch. It should be the basis of everything. Make it unrecognizable as much as you want. Not like it’s some amazing sound to be begin with… Sounds challenging? Prove it wrong.
There’s no time limit, so don’t rush with this. Treat this more like a practice of sound design, maybe you’ll learn something new too. This is not a competition where at the end we compare each other’s effort, you’re already a winner if you submit something. Feel free to share WIPs so we all could discuss various techniques you applied in your project too.
