Hi tft!

Diego also features heavily in my thread entitled 'Daily Inspiration for the Sound Designer':

As well as the Behance web site (which is admittedly easier to navigate) you can find his own here:

Well worth a visit!

Our purpose is unique to us, just as meaning of our life is unique to us. Thus should be obvious there is no universal purpose. There is no universal meaning of life.

In this months issue's 'reader's music reviewed' section there was one that is truly remarkable. Although the praises for this album has already been published, so I'll present my observation.

Image

Mira by Jienat is released on blu-ray, hence dont assume it to be cheap, but it isnt overtly expensive though, which it should have been.

I assume someone had already posted this kind of post somewhere in the forum. I read the review and checked the video of the making of 'Mira', which I believe must be referred in this thread because Jienat's acumen in recording audio are truly remarkable. there was everything from ethnic world music sounds to dog barks to Bow saw cutter played with a bow (by the way that's not an innovation, I've known few who did that, here is a video on how to do it yourself). Overall I loved the whole video and the sounds produced with some real innovative skills.

In Hinduism Mira is one of the most ardent lover of Lord Krishna, I did not know what it may imply to in Norwegian language though. Maybe Jienat had some fascination with Omicron Ceti, the giant red star, which appears on the album quite loud. Maybe its mysterious appearance in one of the episode of Star Trek had driven him to find the title (I, for sure, doubted that). But then finally I read (in jienat.com) this note under the song with the same title -- "Mira is a young bitch from Karasjóhka. She was first encountered one day in 2007 when she was a puppy. Her owner, Anders Nils Utsi, was working with his reindeer herd; Mira was hanging out by Route 889. She had not yet fully grasped the concept that dogs should only chase cars, not try to catch them. She survived, quit catching cars, grew up, and now she has her own title track. Imagine that."

And then I understood why that giant red star stirs the curiosity. It truly is Omicron Ceti.

Wow!!!

What a massive album. I never trusted plastic money, but now first thing I'll do is to get one in order to buy this album.

Apparently, you can get a pleasing kick drum type "thud" by slapping an engorged body part against a fully inflated airbed (i.e. the type you would take to festivals).

Not that I've ever tried this myself, of course....an eccentric friend told me about it :-)

I dont know why I'm posting this here. I found it weird and at the same time very interesting and very innovative. Couldnt find an appropriate thread for something like this.

Disturbing call of a Blackbird.

I think that subtle reverb in the final track is not the original one, but I'm not sure.

'audio.tutsplus' is a very neat site. Yesterday I found this very interesting tutorial - How to transform vocal samples into percussion effects..

I dont know why some guys are so serious on the mixing board.

One can learn from this guy- Music is fun.

Dont forget to check the top highest rated comment. Its better than the video itself.

Today I'm very excited as there is some construction work going on close to my home. They are demolishing some water purification unit and later they'll rebuild it with some new addons. Interesting part is that they are doing this whole day long and continuing the work at night. More interesting thing is that I am sitting there on the porch and recording all the weird sounds that these ugly monstrous machines are capable of producing. Imagine a continuously changing - thud thud crackle krrrakkkkk sampling at 24 bit / 96 khz while the solid reservoir base of pure concrete is dug out. Further more interesting thing is that in the quite calm of night when everyone (including my wife) in locale is cursing these idiot workers for ruining their midnight sleep, I alone sit their with my laptop and encourage them to produce a complete mayhem. Surprisingly no one complains this to the authorities, which I'm greatful to. Last night alone I managed to capture a couple of gb of pure unrealistic sound effects that are as rare as this eccentric demolition. I guess these eccentric ways can only occur in my country. Soon I'll use these sounds somewhere and upload them.

Man! when can I make one of these for myself? O rather "how can I?". Does anyone know any DIY way?

Please Help SOS.

Someone once said to me that a really wet fart can be the freakiest and gross-iest and insanely unforgettable sound that one may ever encounter. That friend of mine will definitely not buy this instrument (even to make some heartfelt ballads for his ex). Ladies and gents behold your breath till you can, as we have, in our presence, the 'Savart's Wheel' :D
