Bond – Went to new york and met up with cousin bruce - top 40s / 60s radio, huge icon in the radio world. Like 84 years old now, still goin strong. Gave a tribute to the day the music died, felt like it was in real time. All of his shows are recorded, so Bond made this sequence with some extracted some clips.
Bishop – Lived in NY for ~10 years. So much sound and energy all the time; walking in the street, gonna get hit by it. This is a sound none of us can hear that has been modulated to be within our range. Featured in NYT magazine that did a series with GE where they found sounds in interesting places. (Turned out to be the sound of rats communicating)
Ben – Using voice memo to capture sound. “Note 106” and “107” struck him; he played one and was interested in the interplay between the two. 2nd clip was in Lafayette Louisiana in a chapel in a village that they had built; 1st sound was a windshield wiper on a rainy day that he pulled over to record, at its perfect tone
Elias – Early sampling keyboard that had a loon sample – the emulator 2. 808 state by pacific state is the track he is playing to feature the loon sample. First sample no warble, second sample confirmed the song DEFINITELY has loon warbles. Sueno latino was another track that featured the loon sample.
Austin – Shared a track “Fool for the Flame” by Viking Moses and upcoming Big Miz track (out soon). Thanked everyone for coming to his apartment, and hopes that Viking Moses (aka Brendon) will join DCLL in the future.
Dev – “Creepy kid sound edits” overlaid with royalty free samples. Neighbor’s kid Clara has the most evil laugh, featured in this sound byte. Prevented a woman at the exhibit from using the bathroom with all the hanging zombie babies. Using Hindenberg + kid sounds
--Transam.org is a great resource for all cool stuff for people that are interest in audio, even if it’s not production or a profession. Equipment, recording, etc advice.
--Thirdcoast is an annual conference in Chicago where indie producers go to attend workshops over the course of a weekend. Overloaded with opportunities to attend workshops and give awards to best doc from previous year, in different categories.Great opportunity for people to get a lot of advice – open to all levels.
--Pop-up magazine stage show – Ben has 2 free tickets and the show is sold out.
--Bond spoke to Sirius XM HR department and they do allow tours of outside companies / groups. Totally open for us to take a field trip to check out the facilities; need to let them know ahead of time and give them a list of names so we can set a date. Bond suggests further into the spring or early summer. Looking to start a list of names for interested people so we can submit. AWESOME!
Audio assignments – put a hat, put ideas in it, and for next month’s meeting do x y or z. Forces us to engage with nature and collect something on our own. Ben suggested this and Austin passed around his hat with bits of paper so everyone could leave with a prompt to think / act on
