Story:

Making a 'thing' with ten random samples isn't a doddle!

When I first arrived at Tapegerm (following Blind Mime from Songfight) I was all about songs and lyrics. Now, obviously, not so much.

I used an old Mac with Logic 8 and dragged the ten samples in... and left them where they fell. Then re-used some elsewhere. I never knew the pope liked cornichon - I hope that's what the french translates as, not that it matters.

The end result, with an addition of a one take voice track is odd, nay weird. So 'weird' is its genre.

All in all 'twas BIG FUN!

Onto No. 2.
