beats in the night

Late one night in 2001, my brother decided he wanted to go record some cool beats in the warehouse at his work. So we filled a couple boxes with some beat-making instruments and headed off to have some silly fun. You can hear bongos, harmonica, slide whistle, drum sticks hitting the concrete floor, blowing into a bottle, a cell phone being opened and clacked shut, drum sticks on a glass bottle, etc.

When we got there he realized he'd forgotten the cable for the microphone, so we ended up just recording this variety of beats and sounds directly through the built-in mic on his Mac. Here's what he made from it all. I think it's pretty cool.

Sounds cool. Omnidirectional mics on computers can pickup all the sound in the room anyways. I thought you were performing in Stomp lol.

It was sort of like stomp — we were just making beats any way we could. Very fun :)

That was pretty sweet, actually. Had a nice rhythm.
