Ithaca Audio provided all the sound design work for this Vimeo featured animation by Maciek Janicki.
Tasked with bringing the Paper City to life, Ithaca Audio recorded a large variety of original sounds in multiple layers. The complex aim was to give the city both a small, paper model feel and also the ambience of a bustling, busy city at the same time.
We close mic-recorded large quantities of different paper sounds and mixed this to give a very intimate sense of the close up sounds of the paper city unfolding before the viewers eyes. Contrasting this we layered large numbers of individual car sounds, roadworks, birds song and sounds that reflect the changing environment from city streets to park land to open country with passing trains.
