After working on my old project Household Symphony, and getting minor TV advertising offers about the idea – I’d like to improve my old idea and make a better Household Symphony.
Basically, I’d like to record sounds of household objects that are not meant to be used as musical instruments, and create soundbanks/libraries using these sounds, and expose their potential.
In the previous project “Household Symphony” – I tried to make this become a reality, but I wasn’t really enthusiastic, and I lacked time, motivation and the right equipment. I have all right now, and I believe I can improve the results. I’m planning to record more objects (approx 10 low, 10 mid and 10 high freq.), capture multiple velocities for these objects, (~5-10 depending on the object) and I’ll convert these into functional usable digital instruments, which I’ll later use to compose a piece, record, mix, master and present in video format.
I won’t be approaching time in a rather unique way. Some sounds will loop some won’t. Some will be sustained, and some will be one-shot. As it always is in a normal produced song, except this time the sounds will be collaged from household items, and they’ll be the instruments. They’ll be incredibly expressive, and as detailed as it could get.
Also in addition to my own old piece that inspired me, here are two other projects that were incredibly inspiring.
