Gregwar and Thank U.

the purpose of the recording is to illustrate how sampling can be used to create a unique piece of art. some detractors claim sampling is simply lifting entire riffs or hooks because the individuals lack the skills to play the instruments or have no talent or originality.

hopefully this can help people change their attitudes towards sample based music or at least re-visit their assumptions. in the very least acknowledge a vision radically different than their own yet using sampling as a true means of expression.

originally recorded over 2-3 days in the early '00s. the recording features one track with a single snare drum sample looped. there's 3-4 aux busses with dsp processing recorded in realtime. you can hear the original snare hit at around 19 mins. the most beautiful part imo is around 43 mins.
