What’s up Creators? Welcome to Challenge #12. We’re excited to announce our first Curated Production Challenge this week with LeSage. LeSage is an amazing producer and Gravitas Create member. He has released music with us on our Infusion single series and is definitely an artist to keep your eye on.

Challenge #11 Recap: This challenge was awesome. Sometimes we don’t know how the community will react to our themes, but this one was killer. So many people responded positively and want to see this type of challenge again down the road. So many great ideas and interpretations of the visual image. We definitely have a lot of creativity in this group. Excited to see what you all do with this next one.

This week’s production challenge is to write a track using ONLY the field recording samples  provided by both LeSage and Gravitas Create. You can manipulate them however you’d like, but you can only use what we provide.

You can use any key and any bpm you’d like. You don’t have to use all of the samples or a minimum amount. However, all of your sounds must come from the field recordings. You can throw them in samplers, Serum, granulators, drum racks, etc. Feel free to get as creative as you can with this one. For some inspiration, check out the Foley Room Documentary by Amon Tobin by clicking HERE.
