New things are happening there.
This channel’s been up for a while. It was a campaign for the 2010 world cup. I was responsible for the sound design in most of the “inner thoughts” that are interspersed throughout the main film. Discover them all and enjoy.
Metempsychosis is part of computer arts magazine this month! You can look for the piece on issue 174. Unfortunately, the piece included on the output cd that comes with the mag is an old version and does not include the soundtrack I produced for it. No matter though, you can check it out in vimeo in its full glory! Who uses CDs lately anyways?
I was asked last week by FX artist Alain Lores, to contribute for a piece called Metempsychosis. He had done this experimental piece about 3 months ago, and it’s a mesmerizing display of fire, glass and light. Truly fantastic to watch.The soundtrack I created in a couple of sessions, was incredibly fun to create. I had never done anything experimental before, so I took an approach of anything goes, space-opera kind of thing with ominous strings and sci-fi sound effects. (including a very dear industrial refrigerator which I pitch bent and added effects to it on 00:14, I’ve used that one in some form in other projects).
Thank you Alain for the opportunity to work on this. It is truly a privilege.
Check it out!
Here’s a link to Alain’s Vimeo page.
Here’s a link to Metempsychosis all nice and big.
It’s time to revive this thing. Recently I’ve been busy with some work, and these projects have required me to dive further into sound design and composition.
Soon I will post some links here to my most recent projects, including a very special piece I had the honor to work in.
This is my take on assignment #3. The object of the assignment was to take a piece of footage and enhance it with motion graphics. So I took the footage of a girl running and made her run on clouds. Naturally, to make a point out of it, this turned into an unofficial “Nike ACG” commercial. Now, I have no clue what the ACG brand of Nike is, apparently it stands for All Condition Gear, but I thought the logo was cool so I put it in there.
I also discovered Motion Tracking in After Effects. I had seen that effect just floating around and I wanted to give it a shot…it is quite a delight to know that AE will just do that for ya with just a few steps. It’s very easy to use and I can’t wait to do more with it.
I learned a lot making this one, especially and more importantly, how to deal with limitations and how they ultimately drive an idea through to the end. Limitations? Bring ’em on I say!
By the way, the name of the song is Rebellion(Lies) by The Arcade Fire.
