This week I worked with Carrie to make a story through sound. We used the theme of insomnia and “things that keep you up at night” to tell a story about an individual experiencing sleeplessness due to thoughts and experiences from the past day, as well as environmental sounds like traffic. We recored most of the audio ourselves but we sampled some audio from one of Tom Igoe’s Pcomp tutorials as well as some freesound.org yawns (owlstorm,reitanna), clock sounds (Muk1984), and helicopters (Mike Koenig). The project was assembled in Logic where we played around with volume, left + right balance, and some effects to make a sound montage that sounds both realistic and half dreamy. Enjoy.
