I just happened to find this treasure trove of free and cheap sound software:

Well done! It’s particularly well-timed as I’m just starting a new sound design project.


My Sound Design for Buried Child

Posted in Practice with tags , , , , , , , on March 10, 2011 by fgitler

Tomorrow (March 11th, 2011) is the opening performance of Sam Shepard’s Buried Child, directed by Timothy Trimingham Lee.

It is being performed at Upstairs at The Gatehouse in Highgate, London.

Buried Child

For this show I was asked to create several different kinds of rain sounds, including a sort of rain symphony of the sound of rain on and around an old farm house, for 20 minutes of Pre-show. Creaky porch doors, birds, and electric clippers transformed into a nightmare were other sounds required. I’ll try to describe more about the construction of these sounds in another post soon.
