Time for some new ringing and rumbling adventures from Brussels. After listening to the mySounds from our sonic companions in Etoy Switzerland our imagination got really started. They send us a super fancy school bell sound and five nice mySound recordings. Their school bell is almost the opposite of the one we have in Sint-Jans-Molenbeek. Very smooth and well tuned against our old fashioned metal shaking bell. We agreed that our bell definitely would not fit into the Swiss landscape because it’s very loud sound would shake of the snow from the mountains and cause a dangerous avalanche!
After a few listening rounds we picked up our headphones and opened our laptops to start composing. We had to work together to make an interesting story with all these sounds. By trying and improvising we found out how sounds can be shaped, copied, cut and combined. It was a challenge to develop a composition and at the same time think of a good story to tell. It was also amazing to find out that such simple sounds can be transformed into a much bigger story. Enjoy listening!
