Sound Experimentation and Testing
Contact / Grain - Drills
These were all captured using a stereo pair of Cold Gold contact microphones attached to different sections of a power drill. The editing process took a while, but the final recordings worked beautifully when processed within Reaktor.
Inspired by an exercise in sound perception created by Zelig Sound, I spent an afternoon recording water and sounds generated by fluids in both liquid and frozen states. These samples were later processed using a multitude of plugins and spectral techniques to achieve a percussive sound.
