Noise related challenges via text message, are impossible to refuse.
I’ve always been fascinated by the bits of audio found in the pre roll of a recording session take, or the moments when you’re still rolling. So many mics, picking up chair creaks, bits of conversation, and the odd spring of pizzicato. Here are a few pieces built into a loop.
Stars of the Lid ‘Atomium’ on repeat, for a while. Quite a while.
This is a work in progress.
Drone built from the Calf Monosynth, and layered in Ardour. A bit of old foley recording thrown in too.
It’s getting to be that time, where our floorboards are going to need a bit of tightening down. We’ve been noticing an increase in creaks, and squeaks, over the winter. I took an old electret condensor, wedged it into the a hole in floorboards, and a put a pzm on the window ledge, to catch some traffic hum. Normalized the audio (24/96 is more forgiving, though this is a really hissy recording.) and looped.
For me, the pulse of the city where I live has never been the downtown core. There is plenty of activity, during the day, and night, but I have always been drawn to the quiet, green spaces. They are surprisingly close by.
Halifax, Nova Scotia is the largest city in the Atlantic Provinces, with a core urban population of almost 300,000. The area where I live is quite close to the busy centre of town, with plenty of traffic, both car and pedestrian. Yet within a ten minute drive from my house, you can be surrounded by trees, water and assortments of tiny animals.
