Various Friends - Soup

From Wixel's blog

"This is something I’ve been trying to get going for a while. It’s what I call “Musical Soup”. The basic idea is that several people send me a tender & quiet 2-to-3 minute recording of a couple of their favorite instruments, using the notes c#, d#, e, f#, g#, a and b. They’re the ingredients. I throw them all into a giant bowl of tracks in which I play those samples as randomly as possible, but always 8 samples at a time. …And that, will become the musical soup. :-)

I am convinced it will result in a magical piece that will be excellent to fall asleep to, or to read a book to, or any other gentle quiet evening “action”. Even if it is just getting lost in all those sounds. For those wondering; the people playing in this little snippet here are: Pieter Van Dessel, Boris Snauwaert, Ellen Evers, Ralph Steinbr├╝chel and Peter Broderick.

The goal is to reach at least one hour of this slowly evolving music. If you want to get involved, send me an e-mail."
