Aidam and I created a soundwalk called Tap Tap. The piece starts outside the entrance to 370 Jay street and continues through the turnstile and in the elevator, up 6 floors.
Tap Tap is a dreamscape, taking place in the imagination of an ITP-er standing in the rain preparing to enter the building on the first day of class.
The audio can be found here.
It is quite an interesting project since it is the first time I use the Adobe Audition. I learned a lot about how to use an audio recorder with multiple microphone types, how to manipulate audio using audition, also about how to plan our design and make our design come true.
Aidan and I started to walk around the building, we tried to find some interesting sounds there. We stumbled upon a square wooden tile and we started clicking our feet together. "That is a great time!" The itp's floor help the people from different places together to communicate. Instead of telling a story, we want to only use the sound of feet to metaphor us. We come here with our dreams, we meet others and we "dance" together to create more "melodies".
We started at planning all the pieces together, about what elements we need such like rain noise, sound of feet, sound of dance...Also, we plan the structure of the sound, following the "arc of sound", we planned when we should add the climax of our sound which is the dancing part. We edited all the elements together and separately edited the sections of the clips. I also responsible for the map of the sound. Moreover, Aidan is really a great and thoughtful teammate that bring the ideas about the dream and did the rewinds in the final and I really enjoyed in this project.
We got a lot of feedbacks from the classmates. For the next time I think we should show our concept ideas and map at first. It will make more sense for our design.
