VIDEO: Building a track using household items with Matt Ward

The usual tools that we'd utilise for music aren't as readily available at the moment, but dBs Plymouth tutor Matt Ward (aka Mr Vinyl) demonstrates how anyone can stay creative through the use of everyday objects.

Creating kicks, snares and pads from field recordings is commonplace in the music world, yet we often forget that our homes possess untold amounts of sonic potential lying in those humdrum items. And that's exactly what Matt Ward utilised for the creation of his track, 'Lorenzo'. 

In the video below, Matt talks through his creative process and how the initial idea spurred him on to experiment with whatever he could find lying around the house, followed by a look at some of the objects and sounds that they produced, and how it all fed into the final track.
