Extra for Song #20 – Garbage Night (Percussion-only version)


This is a track built entirely from cool pieces of metal which I’ve collected over the years. I am a strong believer in reusing what we have rather than creating more, in regards to keeping our environment in tact for the future of our race. Part of what I do in my daily life is to attempt to use less by collecting what others leave behind. I suppose that makes me sort of a scavenger, but I think it’s great! I have pretty much furnished my entire house with things I’ve found. There are things which were given to me and a couple things I’ve actually bought, but I generally only buy used things. blah blah blah.

I used all this percussion stuff from years of collection and finally made samples of them all. I will probably make the sample suite available to the public as well, following this project. My daughter helped me record all the little sounds which make up my collection. She and her best friend also did me the favor of singing backup on the chorus for the full song (which I’ll be posting in the next day or two)… I think they’re cute as cute can be. I had trouble not putting every little noise they made on this recording. Everything a little child does is pure gold!

I was listening back to this without vocals and without other instruments, and I just had to share it with you all. I just love the groove of it, and when you hear the song it goes with, you’ll be like, “how does that fit the song?” … but somehow it does. 🙂
