One of the dandelion collective’s modue operandi has always been to look to the natural world for inspiration. And as a sound producer recently I have been more interested in sampling the environment to make music over using synthesizers or traditional instruments. I struggle with the fact that I don’t want it to be so obvious that it replaces the sound of the natural world but enough so that it still allows identification to make you listen closer.
The sample audio geniuses at tonehammer have created a sample kit to pay homage to bees. You can download the kit as well as read more about the inspiration and how important bees are to our survival. Very cool and most likely will be used on my next project!
