This is the fifth of our ten-part Sound Series where I talk to writers and artists about their work in relation to sounds they have chosen.
In this episode I talk to Brannavan Gnanalingam and Tokerau Wilson.
Brannavan chose the sound of rain on a roof and thought this was a good representation of what he was imagining.
Tokerau chose the sound of paper being ripped – here is his recording.
This is a free styling exercise.
Play either Tokerau or Brannavan’s sound in headphones and record yourself composing along to it.
That simple. What happens when you have rain or ripping paper as a back beat?
At the end of this series I’m going to make an episode showcasing the responses to these exercises. Maybe you would be willing to share your exercises for this showcase.
You can leave your recordings or links to recordings in the comments below.
You can also email me them to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If your sound files are big you can share a Google Drive link or use a service like WeTranfer
