Splice Sounds continues the Beyond Hyperpop series with a sample pack by Count Baldor, the current creative alias of British music producer and composer Tom Parker.

Rather than seeing hyperpop as one defining sound, Parker considers it a continuation of artists like Shitmat, Ebola, and the rest of the Wrong Music squad, among others. Sometimes he works from a blank slate and just creates until he has something he likes. When he is pulling inspiration, it’s from sources like UK garage, jazz, tv show themes, ancient lyre music, dubstep, psytrance, techno, IDM, etc. He shared, “I like to cherry-pick different things and just see what works together in an exciting way.”

When producing music and sounds, Parker likes to play around with various musical tropes and re-invent or repurpose something. He thinks others will find fun ways to incorporate a less serious attitude towards production and songwriting when working with his Splice pack.

All sound in the sample pack are available to download to Splice subscribers. New users can sign up for a 14-day free trial to try Splice.
