Les Productions Zvon releases Memory Collection Pack 05 – Sci-Fi and Aliens

Memory Collection Pack 05 - Sci-Fi and Aliens

Les Productions Zvon has released Sci-Fi and Aliens, the 5th Memory Collection series sample pack, featuring a collection of samples from public domain movies.

1 750 samples for a size of 1.44 GB. The samples in this collection are taken from 10 Public Domain science fiction movies. Please note that the samples are not mapped in any way or in any specific sampler format.

The samples are from 10 Public Domain science fiction movies from the 1930s to the 1970s. So they cover different styles of soundtracks. I was surprised by the quality of the soundtracks in general. They featured early electronic music with a creative mix of various types of sound sources. Just listening
to the samples is fun and it also is a lesson in the history and evolution of sound design in movies (IMHO).

The sample library is available as donationware with a minimum donation of $20 USD. A bundle of Memory Collection packs costs $50 USD.

Salad, Alien made out of vegetables

Till Nowak’s Salad is a digital rendition of Alien made out of vegetables. (currently Till’s site won’t load…)

It was shown at the Emerging Technologies of Siggraph 2007.

From Laughing Squid:

Till Nowak modeled twelve digital vegetables in 3ds Max using classical polygon modeling techniques. Photographs of fresh vegetables were used for the texturing process. Most of the vegetables started with a cylinder primitive and needed around 30 minutes of work. The modeling was easy – it was much more difficult to find the right places and orientations to build a monster with it.

This piece of digital art is Till’s tribute to Giuseppe Arcimboldo and H.R. Giger, but done in 3D Studio Max instead of using paint and brushes.
