Burma – Ancient Ruins

September 12, 2017 - September 22, 2017


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.

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:
  • Household Abandoned Doors Play Track 1400+ sounds included, 53 mins total
    Rated 4.50 out of 5

    Finding the right door sound can be a pain, thus Abandoned Doors was recorded with that need in mind.

    All the 1400+ sounds were recorded in abandoned mansions and houses with unique sonic characteristics, in stereo, usually from two perspectives (inside the room and in the hallway), allowing you a great deal of choice and offering sonic diversity.

    Additionally, splitting the stereo tracks into mono will give you two more slightly different perspectives on each sound.

    The Abandoned Doors library offers a multitude of door recordings, ranging from heavy wooden doors found in turn of the century mansions to cheap old doors in an abandoned warehouse, being opened, closed, slammed, knocked on, kicked, banged on, and even hit with a bat.

    Whilst most door libraries simply name files ‘door open 01’, etc, Abandoned Doors has been carefully tagged with rich SoundMiner metadata and multiple keywords, giving you a clearer image of what a file contains just by reading the title. For more information on what kinds of sounds are present in the library, feel free to consult the metadata file down below.

    Buy Abandoned Doors today and augment your sonic toolbox with over 1400+ door related sound effects, recorded at 24bit/96kHz in unique and inaccessible locations.

  • Sci-Fi Polarity Play Track 975 sounds included
    Rated 5.00 out of 5
    $90 $72

    Polarity delivers more than 950 sounds of electricity, science and technology – captured in several locations around the world, from electricity museums to science labs. About 50% of the library is all about electricity, with various types of Jacob's Ladders, Tesla Coils, Ruhmkorff lamp and all sorts of impactful bursts of energy.

    Then we go through welders, plasma spheres, 3D printers, starting to cover a more broad technology theme – like old phones, telegraphs, dynamo wheels, rotary dials, whirling watchers, alarm, lab centrifuges, something scientists call a roller and a rocker, servo sounds, neon lights, a wimshurst machine and sparklers.

    Many sounds in this section were captured from vintage equipment, from a 1928's tram to old telephone switchboards, high voltage levers and control surfaces.

    All content was recorded at 192KHz with a Sanken CO100K, a couple of Sennheiser 8040 and a Neumann 81i, translating into final assets that have plenty of ultrasonic content, ready for the most extreme manipulation.
