After the Hocus Pocus is before the Hocus Pocus:
Therefore it’s my pleasure to host battle 70: Amen, Hocus Pocus.
Please upload your tracks to soundcloud with #OP-1Battle70 until 26.10.2020.
Here are the inspirational guidelines:
Use the song „Amen, brother“ from the Winstons and sample it with your OP-1.
(Need not to be the classical Amen drum break, which we all know)
Me personally would love to hear samples from the chorus/intro or whatsoever.
Can be combined with the „classical“ drum break, though.
In other words: Do whatever you want with that historical piece of music.
2.) HOCUS POCUS
Use sound samples from magic movies. Could be the sound effect when someone is using the magic wand or even some spoken words within that movie. Magic-movie is not very precise, but it’s up to you what magic means for you. Could be Toy story or maybe Terminator 2? Who knows…
3.) HAVE FUN
No matter how long your song is, mess up the the last part with using „COW“ on tape excessively.
This is where the magic happens.
Like in the past, it’s ok to use other instruments, but they should be sampled through the OP-1.
I hope you enjoy that one!
ps: It is my first battle, so in case I overlooked some of the basic principles, please let me know
