Join Ricard Casals Alexandri (RCA) as he takes us on a journey through a small square in Barcelona. We are able to hear the joyful sounds of children playing soccer and the distant ringing of a bell tower. This recording was captured using an MD MZ-R30 and ECM-929LT microphone.
We are thrilled to share the compositions inspired by RCA's sample.
Having a short time to compose a song helps us to reconsider the definition of beauty and perfection. We live in a society where people are afraid to show what they love to create because it's not "perfect". But we see more beauty in an imperfect creation where a musician produces a song with love and vulnerability.
The rules are straightforward.
1- The musicians must use the selected sample
2- Share their composition or draft before the day of the listening session.
Feel free to contact us on Instagram if you would like to organize a listening session in your city.
We carefully select a sample that will trigger your imagination without constraining you to one genre.
Start composing what the sample inspires you. Feel free to experiment with new genres & instruments.
Upload your song on your Soundcloud profile and share with us the link of your song before the listenning session.
On the day of the listening session, we will share the playlist with all the compositions and invite you if there is a listening session in your city.
Recorded by Tim Kahn, he has captured the gradual melting of a glacier. The ice trickles down through a maze of rocks at the glacier's edge, and the sample finishes with a rockfall in the distance.
We are thrilled to share the compositions inspired by Tim Kahn's sample.
