Make techno with your Fidget Spinners [VIDEO]
Fidget Spinners are all the rage right now.
A week ago I hadn’t even heard the term and now it is literally everywhere I look or listen.
From Wikipedia; “A Fidget Spinner” is a type of stress-relieving toy. The toy has been advertised as helping people who have trouble with focusing or fidgeting (such as those with ADHD, autism or anxiety) by acting as a release mechanism for nervous energy or psychological stress.”
Of course as the internet permits; if there is a meme about it, you have to buy it, film it and upload it to YouTube.
One such YouTuber by the name of Andrew Huang took this stress-relieving toy and made sweet music with it, minimal techno to be precise.
With minimal tech thriving on pops, cuts and clicks, the use of the Fidget Spinner and Fidget Cube became a perfect tool to create sound samples.
He mic’ed up a few spinners and cubes and turned their fidget-friendly textures into an array of whirls and clicks, forming everything from the track’s percussion to its bassline.
The result is actually mind-blowing.
The track sounds like a proper minimal tech track; it’s as if Fidget Spinners have found their true calling.
Soon DJ’s and Producers will be playing live using these toys to create the sounds.
For the bassline he uses the humming sound created from a spinning Fidget which he tidies up on his computer, but it sounds great.
Fidget Spinners may soon be renamed Techno Spinners!
