HISS and a ROAR Shed Impacts

The library includes everything from singular solid earth thuds through to more complex metal impacts, with varying degrees of debris.

During COVID Lockdown one of my projects was to build a greenhouse, which first meant moving a lot of clay & soil… And while doing manual labour a sound caught my ear: huge clods of clay sounded great impacting one of the old sheds, especially an old woodshed/bunker. I figured placing mics inside the shed (as well as exterior) should capture some nice low end… and I was right!

With traffic and flight noise at a minimum due to lockdown, I captured impacts on three different sheds. The first started off as good solid metallic impacts but slowly changed to solid earth impacts as it became covered, which I just knew could be super useful elements for body fall and large scale monster foot stomps. I carried on to record two other old sheds: one was used to store firewood & the other coal. I disassembled one and relocated it, but decided to let gravity help me move the other one, and as you’ll see in the MAKING OF Video I only had one chance to record it!
