Project; Macro: A Neon Christmas Card
Music and Sound Design: Box of Toys Audio
We where asked to participate in this fantastic collaboration with Neon by supplying music and sound design for their Skate christmas card.
In order to effectively portray the sounds of the skateboard in a church environment we joined the Neon team at the film shoot and captured both near and far field recordings of Danny jumping, grinding, skating and spinning his wheels. We knew that various other audio elements would be layered in back at the studio and to seamlessly blend with our field recordings we would need to emulate the natural church reverb. To achieve this we played out a 5 second sine wave sweep, providing us with the necessary information to create our very own convolution reverb, accurate across all frequencies. With this in hand we were able to apply the sonic qualities of the church to other audio material used.
Musically, we took a somewhat surreal and unstructured approach that left room for our recordings to breathe and matched the hyper-real pace and positioning of the camera work.
