#29: Homework - Make Music with Unusual Sound Sources

It's important to try new things. I recently challenged myself to create sounds with tiny samples from old vinyl records that I almost threw in the garbage. I'm glad I didn't because the samples turned into some great instrument racks. Check out the Pacific Vinyl Synths and the Americanas Vinyl Synths Ableton Live Packs; they were the result of my experiments. 

In this episode, I talk about trying new and unusual things to get sounds and inspiration. I also assign you some homework! Go make some music with sounds you either would never use or thought would not yield any worthwhile results.
