Sample Culture was originally dreamed up of something entirely different – but as always, change is imminent! I’m just someone with a fetish for textured sounds, experimenting with things, and then there’s Blues and Rock Music roots that go deep into good old Classical Music. So it seemed just right to bring it all together and do something that projected Sound Design with musically artistic overtones. So in the inception Sample Culture purely aimed to bring non-musical sound elements with cultural/artistic value into a musical context. The genre never mattered, it is all just an experiment where the one BIG rule was to have cool sounds. So I had this awesome hand-drawn logo donated to me, got myself a domain and just continued tinkering with sounds.
In bits and pieces it all began to come together. There were some really amazing projects I managed to get on-board and just decided to do them threw in a logo here and there to get people talking. The response I got was overwhelming and give me the courage to go proceed to bigger plans. I’d had it with troublesome bosses by this time anyway. I designed an audio lab for myself, had it built-up and announced audio services which had gained popularity among Indie filmmakers, Musicians, and Ad Producers. I decided to sign up for the TurnMeUp! certification and began to participate with the Pleasurize Music Foundation as a way of supporting Loudness Standards in the Listening Realm. After some good criticism and introspection, I retired the old logo. For the sake of posterity, and a classic touch it now rests in the favicon spot and occasionally resurfaces to mark milestones
By now I was consumed by Indie as a strong form of expression, and there was so much that was yet to be said this way – it was a worthy revolution. To stay in touch with what gave me so much in return, I took Indie art as a worthy cause for Sample Culture to strengthen and add more meaning to the work being done.
