I set myself the challenge of composing a track just using one sample. I’ve posted the results of soundcloud.  The sample I used was an 8 second clip of some sheep bleating. . Everything you hear is the same sample run through granulizers, harmonic filters and timestretchers. The percussive sounds were created by running the sample through a vst effect – Slitch (which you can download for free from here http://knobster.org/plugins/en/slitch.html).  It’s not very musical but I was pleased that I managed to cobble something together without resorting to other samples or sound generators
