This is amazing! We just spotted Michael Sommer’s new edit over on Flat Matters and it was way more than we expected! They built up a bike and with all the sounds that go along with doing that, they made a beat which went along with the riding in the end. Not only is the riding amazing, but the film work is dialed and the music came out so good. Check it then check out more of Michael’s work under his musician’s alias Sonny Blake. This is truly the sound of BMX!
“We had the idea to make a video of putting together a bmx bike and making the music for the video only from the original sounds we recorded during the video shooting.
The sounds have then been processed and manipulated with different fx and tools like reverbs, resonators, delays and many more to achieve tonal and rhythmic parts for the final soundtrack.
The task was to NOT use any other samples, sound generating sources, synthesizers, drum machines or whatsoever.
by the way
SONNY BLAKE will release an EP with 6 tracks and 2 remixes on Tiefparterre Records in december 2014.
watch out and stay tuned!
