i said i'd take part in the pentecost grid blog :: but ended up visiting my new niece liza which was of course a wonderful thing to do on a day that celebrates birth (of the church). on the way back i suddenly remembered it was pentecost and i hadn't blogged. i was musing on what i might post for pentecost and remembered this old cassette tape tucked away upstairs that i made for grace several years ago.
it's very simple - a reading of acts 2 over a music track. the track is universal horn remix 96 by jmj and richie from the album freezone 3 - hope they don't mind me using it but it is a few years old now anyway. to do the reading i sampled my voice on an old roland js30 sampler. i then assigned the samples to different pads (you can tell this was a few years ago) and as the track played triggered the samples live. that was how i got the mix of voices at the end of the track. anyway i dug out a cassette player and worked out how to turn a track into an mp3 and have uploaded it for you to listen to. it is about 6mb and decidedly low fi in quality but it has a certain something still. see what you think - acts.mp3
even though it's retro the track is still worthy of being a worship trick i feel - no 24
