The Ambient Dishwasher

The Ambient Dishwasher

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global chill chart, 2nd in the global ambient chart, 2nd in the global chillout chart and 3rd in the global eclectic chart.

One day my dishwasher was making some weird noises, it sounded like an alien playing a didgeridoo was trapped inside. So I recorded a little bit of the sound and then processed it using Paul's Sound Stretch. And whaddya know - it actually sounds pretty good -

I posted the stretched version on the Hypnos Recordings forum just for kicks. A couple folks asked to hear the original source as well. Then the next thing you know some of the artists who frequent the forum took that original dishwasher sound & used it as a source to come up with their own original tunes.

Here's the Hypnos forum dishwasher thread...

We ended up with five pieces created from the original dishwasher sounds. I asked my son, who produces EDM music as AXX, to also make an ambient dishwasher tune, which he did and I gotta say I love his version. With my stretched version in there and we have 7 dishwasher tunes, enough for a whole mix.

This is awesome - reminds me massively of how they did the Looper soundtrack:

Holy cow! I love that explainer on how Looper score was made. It makes me want to go back and watch the film again. Thanks for posting the link & glad you liked the mix.

I've listened to my washing machine and thought about doing this. It sounded like out would make a good rhythm track of looped. Kudos on bringing your ideas to life.

Chris, folks like us who hear music in everyday sounds are definitely a different breed but that's what makes us more interesting. Thanks for listening!

Thanks! I was wondering whether this concept would work & I'm glad it does.
