Disquiet Junto 0326 Wave Turntable

The Junto this week asks for a composition using only sine waves and turntable surface noise.

My piece used a couple of sine wave presets from Ableton's Operator synth and a few recordings of a dusty turntable.

The bassline was made with the hum of the turntable as it turned on, dropped down an octave.

You can see in the video that the percussive parts came from the initial contact of the needle on the record, which is an album of bushdance songs that my partner likes.

I recorded a couple of takes on the MIDI guitar to drive Operator, however the video cut out during the second one which was a shame as it was better.

There's a long take of the surface noise from the end of the album to play throughout.
