EDIT: Improved mastering on the bass notes slightly and bumped up the kick volume.
(A draft piece is one that I had to make but is nonetheless not exactly a finished product - Its length and production quality may not be up to par)
My objective was to make a music piece completely from phone recorded sounds. This was the result.
This piece was definitely an interesting one to work on, and it was quite fun to work out all the effects and plugins to make these low quality, phone-recorded sound effects actually sound good.
Almost every single sample in this piece was taken within my room. About 30+ Percussive samples were recorded from simple things like tapping metal and plastic surfaces, coins, crinkling paper/plastic bags, shaking pill bottles etc. The kicks are from hitting my shoes against a carpet ground and a door closing impact.
Two ambience samples were recorded, the first one simply being running water in a bathroom - this one was put through a vocoder so I could actually "instrumentalize" it into a pad, that is what you at the beginning and in the background - and the second is my phone in front of a fan. This ambience is heard in effect at the 50 second mark and onward - a gate, bit crusher and volume automation was applied to it to create a percussive effect.
The melodic recordings were as followed:
1. Piano - this was a C4 note recorded on a phone from a piano. Every piano sound you hear in this piece is actually just that at different time stretching.
2. Glock - this glockenspiel sound is a C5 note recorded on the phone from my laptop on FL Studio playing a glockenspiel sample through its speakers. Because the speakers are very weak, turning it up as much as I could actually caused it to peak and vibrate the speakers to the point where it distorted glockenspiel sound. This was not intentional, but it did make the sound have a electric guitar-ish sound to it. Again, every glockenspiel sound heard in this piece is the same one at different time stretching.
3. Piano flourish that is only heard 1:06. This piano sound is separate from the C4 piano sample and is its own sample.
