Ask me ‘What is my weapon of choice?’ and I’d say ‘Give me my Zoom recorder!’
Recording the real world, looking for its details and tiny nuances is where I start my sound design. The sound of a ‘Shucked Oyster’ contains so many layers of intricate sounds to describe the harsh, tearing, cautious, gentle, soft, smooth texture that we know to expect.
It’s by shaping these sounds, removing the noise and honing in on the signal that is the key to telling the story.
And by telling the story is where we start sharing the feeling.
I do believe that sound captures us all in its own manner, and it can tell us its own story alongside any situation, be it film, picture, life or tech. Sound fills in gaps with feelings.
