1-min loop projects

[EN] Oh wow. I have neglected this blog so much that it’s been exactly one year since I last posted! It’s true that I have favoured social media as my outlet these last months, but I will keep posting here to talk about big projects or to summarise small ones.

Talking of which: Lately I have been posting several mini-musical projects that I have had a lot of fun making. The starting point was using homemade samples that I had been accumulating over the years. Loads of cool drum grooves, guitar lines, vocal melodies were piling up on my hard disk and I thought time had come to put them to use!

I experimented different stuff: starting with a sample and composing over it, building up to a a sample, composing only with samples… And then, seeing all these musicians playing together while they were stuck at home during lockdown made me want to invite friends from past musical experiences to send me samples of themselves playing.

Here’s a YouTube playlist I made with my first 10 projects. They will be more to come, along with other things that have been sleeping on my computer for years…

Until then, enjoy the music! 😉 

[FR] Oh wow. J’ai tellement nĂ©gligĂ© ce blog que ça fait exactement un an depuis mon dernier post! C’est vrai que j’ai privilĂ©giĂ© les rĂ©seaux sociaux comme dĂ©bouchĂ© ces derniers mois, mais je vais continuer Ă  poser ici pour parler des gros projets ou pour rĂ©sumer les petits.

A ce propos: DerniĂšrement j’ai posĂ© plusieurs mini-projets musicaux que je me suis bien amusĂ© Ă  faire. Le point de dĂ©part Ă©tait d’utiliser des samples maison que j’avais accumulĂ© au fil des ans. Plein de grooves de batterie, de lignes de guitare, de mĂ©lodies vocales bien cool qui s’empilaient sur mon disque dur et j’ai pensĂ© qu’il Ă©tait temps d’en faire bon usage!

J’ai expĂ©rimentĂ© diffĂ©rentes choses: commencer avec un sample et composer au-dessus, monter en pression jusqu’au sample, composer avec uniquement des samples… Et puis, en voyant tous ces musiciens qui jouaient ensemble tandis qu’ils Ă©taient bloquĂ©s chez eux pendant le confinement m’a donnĂ© envie d’inviter des amis d’expĂ©riences musicales passĂ©es Ă  m’envoyer des samples d’eux-mĂȘmes en train de jouer.

Voici une playlist YouTube que j’ai faite avec mes 10 premiers projets. Il y en aura d’autres, avec aussi d’autres choses qui dorment sur mon ordi depuis des annĂ©es…

D’ici lĂ , bonne Ă©coute!
