Polyphonic Me Session 5 – Sample and Hold Pt 1

You will need to make 1-minutes worth of music that is only composed from exisiting pieces of recorded music.

You can sample from any source but Spotify / youtube will give you a vast library to work from.

There are numerous ways to utlise recordings as samples but extracting ‘single hits’ (one single rhythmic event rather than mutiple rhythmic events) allows for greater control and flexibility in composition.  This tends towards samples being very short and produces ‘micro sampling.’
