Welcome fellow readers to the Subsekt Creativity Experiment using three sounds only

Since there have been some discussions and talk about being creative, what spurs creativity, making experimental, new, fresh music and what not here quite recently I figured we could try this out.

One of the (in my opinions) best ways to force yourself to think a few turns extra and make something you wouldn't expect from yourself to make is to limit yourself. By quite a lot. By limiting yourself to only work with a few predefined rules, one can get very nice ideas.

So I propose we try to do this to spur collective creativity and force you to think a bit different.

The goal: The aim is to make a short loop or track of max 32 bars made by limiting the elements of things to use. Upload your material in this thread.

The limits: You are only allowed to use the three sounds which I have chosen. These can only be used max two times each. You're only allowed to use max 6 (stereo) channels and max 10 effects (incl processing effects such as EQ / compression) overall. The sounds are intentionally very "bleak" and "basic" and definitely nothing interesting.

The sounds are these, and I got them from free packs on the web from Goldbaby and Wave alchemy:

wacb_kickdrum_009
Tom_DP50_04_warm_Tape_
HHo_GB_vs_FX_3


It's a kick drum, a tom and a hihat.

They sound like this:


Since I started this up I will also start with an example following the limiting rules:


I hope you lot finds this interesting and that it spurs creativity!

Interesting or not isn't really the purpose. Same if the stuff ends up being awesome or crap.

Even I might give this a go. Any time restrictions on this. Since I might not get around to it just yet. Great idea though. :)
