6 new podcasts Asbjoern Andersen


Welcome to part two of our podcast roundup featuring Black sound designers, composers, and audio engineers in the film, music and video games industries.

Composer Chase Bethea and the rest of the Game Audio Hour crew talk about how they’ve been doing (and of course workflows and Reaper!). Designer and Composer Akinlabi Akinbulumo offers great advice about how he came to understand his own feelings of shyness and imposter syndrome by recognizing fear, ego and the scarcity mindset. Composer Calbert Warner (Schematist) shares his process for creating retro boss themes and composes one for a client on the spot. Leslie Gaston-Bird AMPS, M.P.S.E. talks about motherhood and shares advice from the other mothers in audio she has interviewed for her book Women in Audio. For the Game Devs of Color Expo 2019, Game Developer Shawn Alexander Allen hosts a panel with Davionne Gooden, Enongo Lumumba-Kasongo, Mike Eagle and Raheem Jarbo about the influence of hip hop on video games.

As we mentioned in the last roundup, this is part of an ongoing effort to feature more conference talks and podcasts hosted by or featuring Black professionals in sound and music.

Lumination Tribe – Imposter Syndrome, Ego, and The Creative Process | Akinlabi Akinbulumo On Lumination

Episode outline: On this episode of The Lumination Show, Akinlabi Akinbulumo, Dreamterpreter, Brand Developer, and Visual Artist, talks about the Imposter Syndrome, Ego and the Creative Process. He explores various principles that have worked for him on his creative journey. The myth of competition, the mistakes that people make with their brands, how the brain works, and the nature of fear.

1. Ego is self-protection. Everytime your ego is being displayed, it is you trying to preserve an image that people have of who you are.

2. The only way to move things to your long memory is by repetition. Once your brain can see patterns, it makes it easier to save in our long term memory.

3. You don’t have to try and get attention at the detriment of others.

4. You will learn faster, if you learn how to learn. There is a method to learning.

5. Competition is for the most part, a scarcity mind-set.

  • The sounds presented in this pack were recorded during the shooting of a short film taking place by the ocean. We shot in different places, in the marina, on a boat, in an industrial harbor area, in a wharehouse of boat maintenance.

    Even if some sounds of the pack are not fully in the theme, I voluntarily left them because they were recorded at the same time and in order to serve the film.

    The most represented sounds in this pack are those recorded in the marina, the wind blowing in the masts of the boats, at the seaside, as well as a detailed recording of the zodiac boat.

    Sounds were recorded using Sound Devices 633, in 24bits 96Khz, Schoeps CCM 21 mic in ORTF, with an extra CCM 41 for the center (LCR), and using an extra contact mic to record the motor of the zodiac boat.

    All the sounds are raw (No EQ, No Compression, No Fx).

    This pack contains 40 sounds, 80 files, for the ambiences.

    It also contains 15 sounds, 39 files for the zodiac boat.

    All embedded with detailed metadata on Soundminer.

  • Welcome to “MOTION MODE”, an intense collection of sounds to induce movement and evoke excitement in your production.

    You will find whooshes, transitions, noises, granular textures, movements, stutters and hits with a powerful Sci-fi feel.

    Special attention was put in the dynamics of the sounds to ensure the creation of an energetic pack aimed to enhance atmospheres, add movement and enrich musical compositions.

    If you liked some of my previous libraries like “Dodge this” and “The Transition” you are gonna love this one.

  • Huge deep and textural organic whoosh by’s. These are un-altered but a total blast. Want more fun, just (again) compress and pitch to fit, and hell, maybe add a little distortion.

    A great collection of organic sliding whooshes. They sound great, have lots of movement and are almost always complicated movements not just simple whoosh by’s.

THE WORLD’S EASIEST WAY TO GET INDEPENDENT SOUND EFFECTS:
 
A Sound Effect gives you easy access to an absolutely huge sound effects catalog from a myriad of independent sound creators, all covered by one license agreement - a few highlights:
 
 
  • Destruction & Impact Metamorphosis Play Track 2328 sounds included $190 $165

    Metamorphosis is a huge collection of recorded source, synthesized material and hybrid sounds. The library was created to cover a wide range of themes, with rich textures, aggressive impacts and a large selection of pass bys, bass drops, pyrotechnics and many more types of material.

    All of the Recorded Section was captured at 384KHz with microphones capable of recording up to 200KHz among with more conventional mics. The resulting assets are sounds that can be stretched to new extremes for greater sound design opportunities.
    In many cases I took the liberty to slow down the assets while editing the sounds to deliver what I thought was the most useful version of a given recording though in most cases I have also included other takes at the original 384KHz sample rate to get the best of both worlds.

    All of the Synthesized Content was created in Serum while the Hybrid Section was created by manipulating the Recorded and Synthesized sounds.

    Techniques such as morphing were used to blur the lines in between the nature of the two sources, making for ambiguous yet extremely versatile material that can be employed on both realistic and abstract designs.

    Bonus: Two extra libraries included for free:
    This library also includes two additional releases from Mattia Cellotto - for free: Crunch Mode delivers 230 crunchy sounds made with a variety of vegetables, fresh bread, pizza crust and a selection of frozen goods. The Borax Experiment gets you 158 squishy, gory, slimy and gooey sounds.

    The Water Volumes SFX library gets you over 300 sounds of natural hot-springs, bubbles, and liquids of various densities boiling under the effect of dry ice.

    A large amount of content was recorded during two weeks spent in the city of Furnas, Azores, where volcanic hot-springs of all kinds are active. Other recordings were gathered with the use of dry ice.
    Most recordings will contain energy up to 96 KHz as they were recorded with a Sanken CO-100K at a 192KHz sample rate. Others were gathered with the use of an Acquarian H2A, Sennheiser MKH8040, 416, a Sony D100 and a Tascam DR-05.

    The collection was recorded over a trip to Sao Miguel, Azores, and several other recording sessions in the UK.
