The rare distinctive quality of these recordings also allows them to be a base for any sound experimentation through a creative process; and can be layered with other sounds or treated in order to produce interesting sound design.
Part of the sounds were recorded in the field, on thin ice layers recovering lakes.
Part were thoroughly recorded in studio.
Also the debris sounds have a particularly interesting sonic texture due to the process of slightly melting and freezing again, which gives them this special crispy crusty quality.
These unique focused sounds have been edited meticulously making them easier to integrate in any audiovisual project or interactive program.
All in all, these brittle coarse sounds constitute a practical pool for sound designing.
A must-have for ice fractures, frictions, fissures, and tensions.
The devices used : Sound Devices 788T, Sound Devices MixPre, Zoom H5, Sennheiser MKH8090, Rode NT5, AKG C414. The samples were recorded at different times, with various equipments and stereo technique (MS and XY). Some were recorded at 192KHz, but they are all conformed to 96KHz for the library delivery.
