Sampled Kitchen Appliance Ambient Jam - Liven Lofi-12

video upload by ChrisLody

"Just for a bit of fun I thought it would be interesting to see what a jam made of non instrument samples would sound, so here is a jam just made from nothing but kitchen appliances. All sounds were recorded on a Korg SOS recorder then tuned within the Sonicware Liven Lofi-12 by playing them out loud into a tuner on my phone and tweaking the pitch.

I sampled my microwave which is used for the opening drone sound. I think there must have been some electromagnetic interference which caused the weird little rhythmic pulse that runs through it. Nice little happy accident.

The beeps from the washing machine and air fryer is kind of cheating but the result is very pleasing, especially the pitched down air fryer which take on bell like tones.

I'm especially happy with the pitched up dishwasher. The hum of its motor is particularly deep so I was expecting to use it for bass but it made a really nice melodic sound instead.

By the way the 'Typical 1990s Kitchen' image comes from a book of royalty free images. My wife has been buying them recently so they will likely pop up a lot more from now on :)"
