I have always been very inspired to create sound and music from visual imagery that evokes a sense of exploration and adventure. This generally happens for me if I go for a walk outside in nature like in a forest. I like places that have remnants of objects, machinery and forgotten structures that have in time been engulfed by nature. I have just been experimenting with the idea of audio conceptualising which involves using still images, pictures and paintings to evoke these feelings and using sound and music to tell the story of what is being seen.
I found this amazing artwork by Majora28 at DeviantART.
In ‘Dead End’ I used sound design to promote the sense of space and environment as seen in the weather and a feeling of optimism similarly represented from the sun shining through. A plastic bag and a kettle formed the sound of a thunderstorm and I am excited by how realistic it sounds. I am trying to break away from being so literal with my sounds and i’m finally enjoying the challenge of seeing what I can ‘get away’ with.
