New Project: Sound Editing and Mixing

For an assignment in Professor Terry Adkins’ Sonic Measures course at UPenn this spring, our first project was to choose an audio source, then to deconstruct and make something unrecognizable from it (so the end result is not obviously tied to or traceable to its original audio source). I chose Bobby McFerrin’s a cappella track that plays under the Pixar short film Knick Knack. We used Logic to use editing and mixing functions to create something entirely new by recycling and modifying our sound source. Mixing tools were used to enhance the environmental/other qualities of our projects.

My goal was to create a sound scape evocative of biking through a construction zone or busy city, like the Big Dig or Boston, MA more generally.
