Shoe Music

If you work in a place that has tile flooring, or some other non-carpet flooring, you've probably learned to tune out the noise of everyone walking around. Maybe. I can't.

High heels, boots, or flip-flops; tip-toers, striders, or stompers – there are tons of different shoe sounds made every day. I think it would be neat if someone sampled a bunch of people walking and turned it into a complete song. Melodies, percussion, maybe even lyrics (not easily) all created from the sounds of people's shoes hitting the ground.

I bet there's an entire album of shoe music somewhere… there almost has to be!

And before anyone suggests that I take this on and make a FAWM song in this style… the idea is neat, but actually doing it seems incredibly tedious. I'd like someone else to do it.

"VivoBarefoot is a revolutionary, back-to-basics design based on the simple principle that being barefoot is the healthiest way for you and your feet to be. An ultra thin puncture resistant sole allows your feet to be as millions of years of evolutionary design intended – Barefoot!"

I'm not sure why.. but I really want a pair. And if I'm going to pay $140 for shoes, they might as well be the green ones.
