Creative Sampling – unlocking the hidden potential of everyday objects

When the Futurists heralded the coming Art of Noises in their famous manifesto, they got the future half-right. In time, the world would see the birth of a new aesthetic in which explosions, sirens and gunshots could be considered as music.

What they didn’t see coming was the way recording technology could draw equally fearsome noises out of very small objects; that in the right hands, a cup, a can or a clockwork spring could produce a sound to rival the biggest bass drum or the loudest backfiring motor. In this workshop, Ableton Live expert and catalyst for hire Nick Feldman shows you how to create your own art of noises, making bespoke beats and custom breaks from stuff that’s likely sitting in your recycling bin right now.
