There’s a lot that went into this one…
I started with a sample of a metal bowl that I recorded on my phone (you can hear the kids in the background):

Then I processed that in the Fieldscaper app to create this loop:

I took that loop into KORG Gadget and treated it two ways. First I sped it up and increased the pitch:

Then I sliced and sequenced it to create this more rhythmic loop:

I combined these together with a drum beat:

Then I recorded this ukulele part along with that beat:
I took that ukulele part, chopped it up and resequenced it to create the final result.
This was played on my Pono baritone ukulele.
