Some interesting things I found on September 15th, 2008:
# KlankBeeld Raaphorst: project wit – Blogging musician Marco Raaphorst creates a new composition inspired by a photograph or video every single friday (well almost every friday anyway).
A few weeks ago Marco asked his readers to submit a little spoken audio clip of the word “wit”, Dutch for white.
Last friday Marco posted his 32nd "KlankBeeld" (sound image) featuring a video with images by Karin R. and a whole bunch of people who said "wit"
Yup, I’m in it too! Thanks Marco ^_^
# Cinematic sound technique: The subharmonic oscillator – Sonic Cinema explain the wonders of the subharmonic oscillator:
Did your ever wonder where those enormous rumbles come from whenever spaceships enter our solar system? The subbasses in movies are often that low and loud that you can really feel them. It is an element of excitement powerfull enough to get the viewers out of their seat.
This is not because the sound engineers mixed in recordings from an earthquake that make the ground shake, it is because we are dealing here with a Subharmonic Oscillator!
Threadless had (yup it’s over, sorry) a cool contest where you can win a Bleep Labs Thingamagoop.
Our doorbell here at Threadless broke, so the tech awesome dudes hacked together a magnificent replacement for it out of this super mega awesome noise making synthesizer robot!
Our friends at Bleep Labs sent us a Thingamagoop, and he’s doing a good job, but he needs a new name! So post your name idea in this blog, and while everyone is here tomorrow, we’ll vote and select a winner!
