Hello. In this episode of Vorpal Sounds, we’ll have a go at making some incidental sounds. My definition isn’t probably very accurate but the idea of an incidental sound for me is something that’s not really musical but still supports the track’s structure by adding a little bit of freeform texture or ambience. I’m fascinated by these type of sounds but being overly analytical, I usually struggle to just pull some random samples into a song. So this sort of process is something that can sometimes yield cool results for that purpose.
Right, let’s get started now. The sample here is a little snippet from a movie. It’s short but has a nice mix of atmospherics and foley.
