On this week’s edition of the program, I am going to be featuring tracks from the ambient online "One Sample Dare" contest that has been going for quite a while.
Here’s the information about this ambient challenge.
With blessing from our host, Dax IX, I would like to start contest for ambient creators.
The idea of the contest is to create ambient track using only one sample.
1. Additional samples, soundfonts, synths, samplers are NOT permitted (except instruments which will use only given contest sample loaded). Any other processing of contest sample is permitted.
2. You can use as many copies of original sample as you want, each processed with respect to Rule 1.
3. Time for submissions is 16 days, counted to midnight, UTC, of 16th day.
4. Submissions should be uploaded to place available for all AO members. Links should be posted in thread dedicated to given round. Please, do not use hosting with countdown, CAPTCHA and other obstacles.
5. Sample is provided under CC0 (public domain) license.
6. Winner of contest is chosen by votes of AO members.
7. Winner of contest chooses sample for next contest.
8. Participants SHOULD disclose the formula for winning track for the benefit of community.
Keeping all that in mind, I will be playing most of the entries from sample contests 11 and 22, featuring such artists as Subdream, remst8, CosmicLettuce, Codehead, MetaDronos, shaun rylands, Ian Haygreen, lighthugger, Tuonela, Duckett, Dave Dorgan and Synthetic Aurality.
Please tune in on Friday November 14th at 11 PM for two hours of fascinating experimental ambient music.
Thanks for listening.
