Samples from the film noir The Pay Off over beats, with some choppy Benny Goodman samples thrown in for melody. [more inside]
Virgil's The Aeneid and Coronet Films' The Powers of Congress sampled over a breakbeat, with some chopped-up classical music thrown in. [more inside]
MeFiMu stalwart micayetoca asked me if there was anything else from the Japonisme project, so I dug up this other one that I'd done a while back. It's just a simple little ditty that uses an a cappella vocal (slowed down a bit) from a 7" record I picked up at a flea market, to which I've added a rhythm track and some bamboo jaw harp. I put it to some video footage I shot here in Tokyo, too, and uploaded it to YT earlier today. If you'd like to see it...
Created in 1996 from a telephone message from a divorce lawyer.
Title track from my new album. Song uses nothing but samples (other than the drums) from the Firefly episode "Objects in Space".
This song liberally samples a song by Beri Saharof by the same name. What you never heard of Beri Saharof? Check him out, he's pretty good, sings mostly in hebrew, what with him being israeli. I discovered his music in an excellent movie called Saint Clara, good luck finding that one! This one sounds especially good in a car once the bass line kicks in.
Probably my best song on my new album "Objects in Space". One of the few songs I've ever sung on. Excellent turntable work by E_B_A. You can download this, and any of my music at my website popamericana.com/76.
Samples come from an interviewee recalling experiences from the great depression.

Lots of sampling, but I'm so seriously stoked by this piece. You will be, too.
I have been composing this piece for quite some time now and I am happy with the current result uploaded here. It's a fun, jazzy, bopping track with overdriven drums, horns, and a surprise guest named "Flute". Enjoy.
Song based on a disturbing mic in track recording I found. Here's the original (warning: I mean it when I say it's disturbing).
sweet sampling, sweet manipulation, sweet field recordings, sweet tune, sweet jesus.
I assembled this track for the Sonny Bono is Dead compilation, which looks like it's never going to see the light of day. The title and subtitle are anagrams of the original piece of music which would have fallen into public domain had the Mickey Mouse Protection Act not passed.
A number of mic in tracks are people testing their microphones, and since many of those people use "testing 1-2-3" for their mic checks, I decided to make a waltz out of them. By the way, the guy singing "testing 1-2-3" is not pitch-shifted. He sang the phrase a few different times in his mic in track, and I cut-and-pasted his 1's, 2's and 3's to make a semi-melody.

Everybody seems to think it's so important that you have to grab for money all the time. Seems to be the main goal in everybody's life.
Downtempo track played live with improvised noise bits and fx. For more, see http://www.albertoforero.com
This track is part 2 of a 23 minute mega mash up with a steady beat and some obscure samples. When I played this set live, I was happy to see people breakin' to it. Cool! http://www.albertoforero.com

Another mic in track track, built around an audio love letter sent to some girl named Holly. You can hear the original letter (done in two takes) at the above link. Look for "I Love You Holly"; it's about two-thirds the way down the list.
This is the opening song from my Comfort Stand EP, "mic in track," consisting of songs created from anonymous personal recordings that were (unwittingly) shared on p2p networks. You can hear many more examples on my homepage. I used FruityLoops (FL Studio) to make the music, GoldWave to make the samples, and AudioGnome (primarily) to find the original mic in tracks.

Another song (featuring spinning from DJ Sku) from The Wild Farewell by The Harvey Girls, as posted earlier in Projects. It is too damn hot to be outside.
