Since the last battle #43
ended in a real close decision between me and @quarantequatre
(and for another obvious reason) I asked him to join me in hosting this battle...
I mean: HEY! IT'S BATTLE #44
It's called "BODY OPERATOR".
And here are our rules:
#1: No internal synths, no preset samples and/or imported user samples (except those from rule #2).
#2: All sounds must be done and only be done using any parts of your body. No other objects allowed.
#3: Not less than one sample must be recorded as a "loop" with a length of at least one bar. This could be a human beatbox rhythm, a whistled melody, spoken words, singing, a rhythm made with your hands on your leg, etc.
#4: The loop from rule #3
must appear at least once in its full length and as it was originally recorded (applying effects is allowed). Apart from that it can be chopped up and scattered as much as you want.
#5: Unlimited resampling and all effects allowed.
#6: The title of your submission must contain at least the name of one body part that you used fulfilling rule #2
. Some examples: "Hand me your heart", "Kneedeep in trouble ", "I head an awful trip". (Let's not drift into NSFW regions here.)
...and finally the golden OP-1 battle rule...
#7: all mixing, processing, recording, mastering and final mixdown to album must take place within the OP-1 (you may use an external microphone and recording device for recording your body sounds, but no external effects or processing allowed!).
Let's set the deadline on Jan., 22nd. 29th
