Random Sampling the Past ds106 Flow

    What does that mean, Merry Hacksters?

    Kevin Hodgson visually has shown this for some time, in the style of one of his awesome web comics.

    When I had to make a decision concerning a commercial for the ds106 radio project of fall 13, I took the text of Kevin's little comic and spoke the words into a microphone.

    After this I opened an audio editing software and in a second track added a groovy sound I've found on
    I also tried out some effects like echo and modulation to achieve a richer sound.

    The logo for the soundcloud file I've created as my version for a logo for our group, which was anyone supposed to do.
