Alarms used

The track in a sentence...
"If I made a track based on alarm sounds, this is what it would sound like."

How he did it
David found a key challenge was to keep the track all alarms whilst still trying it make it musically interesting. His track is based on a single 2-second alarm sound.

He started by stretching his alarm sound to various lengths (up to 3 minutes). He then modulated its frequency and layered multiple versions of it on top of each other. Effects were also added for variation and depth.
