New Project: Foley Fiction – a Soundtrack without a Film

This was my final assignment for my Electronic Composition Class at Penn with Professor Primosch. Almost all featured sounds are made from manipulated sine waves, chirps, or (mostly) recordings of me singing or speaking or making noise into a microphone. I recorded a crowd of students throwing frisbees as well as some ambient city sounds in the middle of the night, but those samples were used sparsely and every sound in this project is ‘foley.’

Here is a narration to guide you through this film soundtrack [without a film]:

Incognito at his daytime desk job at the office, an assassin receives an assignment via telephone. He clears his desk, packs his bag, quickly grabs his keys, and walks casually to the elevator around the corner from his cubicle. He takes the elevator down four flights, then its doors¬†open onto a train station. Crossing a platform, pop music plays on the radio.¬†The assassin walks through the station unnoticed to his parked motorcycle.¬†Across the platform, the assassin boards and starts his motorcycle.¬†He rides the motorcycle through a windy set of tunnels, until… he reaches a large crowded roadside restaurant. He parks his motorcycle, strolls along the sidewalk until he reaches a table in the middle of the street-side seating where – he fires a single shot, eliminating his target. ¬†In the wake of his crime’s commission, the¬†assassin¬†skulks away unseen.

I created this project using Audacity and Logic Pro 7.

Enjoy: HERE IT IS.

Love the key of G minor? …You’re in luck! Check out this new piece ‚ôę

This is the newest installment of a collection of pieces I’ve set out to compose and complete throughout 2013.

  • Check out more of my music HEREthere are some new additions, including “The Infinite Boy” (written for the same UPenn student film as “The Infinite Loop;” both are now listed on my Music page under Compositions/film scoring genre)

Let me know what you think! Hope you enjoy this one ūüôā
