Start from Scratch Challenge

Start from Scratch Challenge – The Great Outdoors – Win items from our Sound Shop!
This month, Soundation invites you to step outside and make music from sounds of the great outdoors.
While field recording in its early days was born out of a fascination with nature, today field recording can be anything from the whirls of a washing machine to the oinks of a pig. Yep, we’ve gone that far. Think Björk’s song about the Icelandic countryside using bird songs she recorded in the Caribbean, an ambient rework of airport announcements by Chino Amobi, Matmos’s soapy minimalist techno that samples the sounds of clothes spinning, and Matthew Herbert’s documentation of a pig’s 20-week life. Anything goes when it comes to field recordings.
Step out into the living, breathing world and recreate Spring’s sense of excitement or your city’s soundscapes for this month’s challenge! And if live recording is not your forte, we’ve got some fun stuff in the “SoundScape Niedersachsen” folder for you to play with in the sound library.
Submit an original track based on a theme of The Great Outdoors before the deadline (26 May 2019, 23:00 CET) and 3 winners – users with the most unique, creative and theme-relevant track – will get to pick any 3 items from our Sound Shop, get their track featured and have their work published on our social media.
How to enter the challenge:
• Publish the track and post it in this group
• Publish the track on your social media and tag #soundation
• The track has to be made using Soundation (Yes we check!)
• Each member can submit 2 tracks
• Please follow our Community Guidelines. Failure to do so will result in a ban.
P.S. For winners of our previous challenge, take a look at our Facebook page.
