Burma – Ancient Ruins

September 12, 2017 - September 22, 2017

$1050

The Burma – Ancient Ruins expedition starts in Mandalay and makes its way south to Yangon, stopping in the Bagan Archaelogical Zone to explore the ruined temples. Each location includes a recording session of traditional musicians, and there are also many opportunities for making field recordings along the way.

The cost for participation is $1050 US per person, and includes all transport and accommodation, and some meals (when provided as part of the accommodation), from the arrival of the participant in Mandalay on the 12th of September until the departure of the participant from Yangon on the 22nd of September.

These are highly educational expeditions that include a number of advanced lectures along the way on microphone theory, microphone choice and placement, digital audio. I have been teaching audio at a degree and masters level in colleges in Australia for decades; when I describe these lectures as ‘advanced’ I mean that they go beyond what is taught in most audio schools, and what is found in most text books. With over 35 years of audio engineering experience, and over 30 years of educational experience, I’m no stranger to simplifying complex concepts.

Since 2004 I have taken over 80 people on my expeditions; mostly audio students, but also industry professionals, musicians and composers. For further reference, the Testimonials section of the website has over 40 testimonials from previous expedition participants.

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

  • Materials & Texture Glacier Ice Play Track 300+ sounds included
    Rated 5.00 out of 5
    $40

    Glacier Ice is a library containing over 300 high quality sounds of ice cracking, breaking, shattering in various sizes of blocks – recorded entirely in the Italian Alps over the course of two winters.

    The library contains sounds of all dimensions, from ice cubes being dropped in a drink to a designed iceberg collapsing.

    The majority of the material was recorded at 192 KHz with a Sanken CO100K and a stereo pair of Sennheiser MKH8040, making this library greatly flexible for pitch shifting and all sorts of heavy processing.

    A small section recorded at 96KHz features sounds recorded exclusively with contact microphones placed directly on the surface of a frozen water stream.

    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.
