In this video, I take you through my case study of the song "Little Sister" by Queens Of The Stone Age. I am performing this case study with the purpose of furthering my knowledge of music production, aiding my skills as an audio engineer. You can check out the song in the video at the bottom of the page.
Atlantis is a short animation created by Macauley Bell, which depicts an underwater scene from the novel 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, written by Jules Verne. The animation doesn't depict anything specific from the scene. It is more of a snapshot of time within the world that Verne has created. I was brought on to the project to create an underwater sonic environment and also to give the scene an ominous feel.
Recently I've had the opportunity to assist in correcting audio for a short film called Andy's Void. A story of Andy and his imagination. In this blog I go into detail about the film's audio,; what needs correcting and why; as well as our process for how we plan to approach this task within a five week time limit.
In this case I'll be analysing a scene from the episode "K3rnel Pan1c" from the show Mr Robot, which is a show based around the character Elliott - a cyber vigilante that suffers from social anxiety disorder and clinical depression - who has an alternate personality known as Mr Robot. The aim of performing this case study is to extend my knowledge of mixing film audio. I will be analysing the dialogue, music and effects separately to determine how they were created and processed; how they interact the video image; and also how they interact with each other.
In this case study I'll be performing an analysis of Sean Murray's "Pentagon", which is featured in the game, Call Of Duty: Black Ops. I intend on using this song as a reference track for an upcoming project, involving myself and Chris Ware creating the composition and sound design for the game Transmutation (Jordon Dodds, Nic lyness, Pritish Choudhary).
I am performing this case study with the purpose of furthering my knowledge of electronic music production, aiding my skills as an audio engineer. "Army of me", lead single from the album Post (1995) written and produced by Björk and Graham Massey, is exemplary of how electronic production methods can be utilised in pop music.
