Track of the Week: Bike Music

Some original music by yours truly: a spindly mix of sounds derived entirely from the operation of my bicycle!

Part of the musique concrete collection in my music library.

To create this piece, I chopped each individual sound event into a discrete sample. Using follow actions in Ableton Live, I created a couple of sample groups and randomized the order of playback for each, running them simultaneously with a different interval of autopan assigned to each group. The result: a grinding light industrial groove, chaotic but still tied to a pulse of sorts. It has a lot more to do with the kickstand than I expected it to.
