This EP is the result of an experiment. Earlier last month, I asked listeners to send me sounds. Any sounds they wanted. The idea being that, using nothing but the samples they provided, I would spend the evening creating an original piece of music. The first attempt was certainly a bit terrifying. I received around thirty submissions that included everything from harsh noise to small guitar melodies to someone clicking away on a keyboard. Even though the soundscape was remarkably eclectic, form slowly began to emerge as it was put together.
I was intrigued by the result. It was certainly unlike anything I could have created on my own. A few days later, I had to try again. The process was repeated a number of times, and before I knew it I had a group of songs that somehow created a cohesive EP in spite of the inherent serendipity of the creative process.
Thank you for listening to Formuline. If you’d like to get in touch, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
