The majority of samples here are actually from a washing machine, there are a couple of samples from a dryer which was less interesting as a percussive instrument. For the loops I wore headphones while listening to first track of PLANET DRUM. A wonderfull percussion recording! I just played along to have a steady beat to do some loops against. I had not inteneded on recording loops, but I just started banging away and thought some of the sonic qualities were quite interesting to say the least.
