Real-World Remix MP3s

The user-submitted remixes at the Freesound community site (freesound.iua.upf.edu) often fly by in the blink of an ear. Thus, it’s best to recommend a handful, all housed at the “Remix! Tree” section (link). Recent highlights include a taut knock on a Coke bottle (link), transformed into a tensile smattering of pizzicato island rhythms (link) worthy of film composer John Powell. A two-second contact mic recording (link) of a camera flash charging (you know that tiny, asymptotic whine) is transformed into a rickety rhythm (link), just three seconds, but pregnant with promise. Both raw recordings are by one edwinpmanchester, both remixes by one lancelottjones. Someone should log on and build on the potential of lancellot’s accomplishments. It’s only be chivalrous.
