AUDIO FOR MULTIMEDIA (BSc 2 Audio Engineering)
For this assessment i had to do 30 second of sound replacement on a Short Excerpt of the movie Wall E .
For this i had to create all the sounds and SFX by recording voices, doing Foley and using sound synthesis on a DAW (Logic Pro X). I also had to use the song "Don't Worry Be Happy" of Bobby McFerrin. I cut, applied an EQ to make it sounds like if it were playing from the mechanical fish and timestreched it to synchronize it with the image.
The scene i chose was mainly using Foley technique. Thus i recorded a lot of sounds such as for instance:
the bubble wrap: i used real bubble wrap, but the sound was a bit thin.
Wall-E wheels: i used the fan in my bathroom. I didn't have anything sounding like a toy car with remote.
Wall-E voice: i used a cat toy (a mouse)
Eva arms/weapon noise: i used a toaster and a kettle
When Wall-E say "no": i used a dog toy
A hand mixer: i recreated the sound with a corkscrew
Most of the Foley sounds were modified by applying EQ, phase distortions, reverb.
The voice of the 2 robots were recorded thru a dynamic microphone and an audio interface then modified in Logic. For Wall-E i applied an equalizer, a vocal transformer and pitch correction to modify my voice. For Eva voice i applied an equalizer and a vocoder.
I used audio synthesis to create sounds to add for Eva voice and arms movements to make it sounds a bit more "technologic".
For the ambience music i had to compose a short melody with VST on logic.
