Darkwinter releases some really cool stuff. In September, they announced a remix contest. They posted loops and sounds by their artists, which entrants could use to remix into new pieces.
I downloaded a number of their samples. I also had a sample I had made of a wrench-o-phone, which is a kind of xylophone of different sizes of wrenches.
I created a piece called "The Spiral Wrench of Avarice". It's a bit noisy, but I rather like it. I hope it's not a wrenching experience.
Today I learned that my work got released on a compilation of the entrants to the contest. It's great fun to have something released on darkwinter, a record label I respect.
If you'd like to hear "The Spiral Wrench of Avarice", in all its noisy wrench-stomp glory, then simply go here and find it on Volume II of the compilation:
