What's better than a random sample? SEVENTY ONE random samples!

For the Random Sample Challenge (fawm.org/forums/topic/10959/) I decided to use my Korg Volca Sample. I loaded it up with 71 random samples from Freesound (using this website, hisschemoller.github.io/volca-freesound/) and wrote a small song with it. The harmony was created by pitching one of the sound samples to make a bass line.

(Why 71? The Volca Sample can hold up to 100 samples, but it's memory is limited and was full after 71 samples.)

The song is based on an idea that I had where after you die you meet with your first love, and you tell them everything you've lived since you were apart, reuniting and finally resting. Going full circle. Returning after a long road.

lyrics

Tell me all the things you’ve seen
Places where you’ve been
It’s been so long my darling

You told me you wanted to be free
There was so much to be
I let you roam away

And now you’re back where you belong
What took you so long?
Sit here next to me

And tell me of every pain you’ve had
Every day you were sad
I know it hurt like hell

And tell me of all the love you got
The good things that life taught
And everyone you’ve met

Cause life is a blessing and a curse
Good things that turn for worse
But also good things

Cause life is a blessing and a curse
Good things that turn for worse
But also good things

Good things
