Storycore: Beats made from Storycorps Clips

Storycore, get it? Like a music genre!

Every Friday, Philadelphia’s NPR affiliate plays a Storycorps entry during Morning Edition. Storycorps is a project aiming to collect audio recordings of people’s personal stories. I always look forward to it, just like a John Butterworth traffic report, or a beat getting dropped in or out of a track at the exact right moment.

Trudy Henry

While listening to this entry, my friend Mark mentioned something about fashioning a beat from the lady’s voice. So I gave it a shot.

All percussion sounds in the track originated from Trudy Henry (pictured, left). Everything else from an extremely cheap, overused guitar or my mouth.
