FortyOne – Different Mayonnaise
Old records (for the most part children’s) found in thrift stores, yard sales and flea markets were the main source of the material along with public domain drum loops, Internet WAV sites, TV shows and movies and much more. No drum machines, fancy samplers or sequencers were used on this project. Not one shred of original instrumentation, just 100% samples recorded with a basic PC microphone strategically placed up against my stereo speaker and two programs called Sound Recorder and GoldWave.

more sonic gems can be found at ComfortStand. I’m particularly fond of the “Mic In Tracks” and “Party Fun with Recorders.” I had the misfortune of having childhood tapes fall into the hand of nefarious “friends” later in high-school.

Now you know why I’ve moved half-way across the country….
