Dialup modem dubstep

Check out this dubstep song, via muzik4machines, made solely from the noises from a dialup modem. Skip to 11:57 if you want to skip “the making of”, and get right to the song.

I have heard that dubstep sounds like a dialup modem, so I decided to test if the modem could sound like dubstep. Every sound is from the opening handshake – there is no synth and no samples used, even the drums are all based on parts of the modem sound. The bass is pretty clearly shown in the intro from modem buzz to brostep wobble.

Very cool.

    The dialup modem takes me back, dubstep is relatively new; this track evokes complex feeling in me.

    Good.

    Fun track. :)

    Shit’s come a looong way from bit tunez, Mods, Demos, ScreamTracker s3m’s and the revolutionary Gravis Ultrasound.

    here’s part 2: the door stopper http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lMOU9o49so
    the modem was too easy, all kind of noises and tones just perfect for creating drums, basses and everything, so this time i attacked the second most common dubstep myth, the door stopper, so i found myself 2 nice door stopper samples and built a whole song with them, some parts are not recorded, as is all the arrangement as my laptop is wayyyyy too old to record audio and video while producing
