Zombies! In a departure from our usual format, Bryan goes step by step through the building of a detailed zombie-filled background using free sound effects. The work was done with Adobe Audition 3, though many of the principles can be universally applied. The scene will appears in the Dunesteef story found here: Chemo: The Condemned
The Freesound Project for free sound effects.
Building the Pod is a great podcast about working with Adobe Audition.
In the second half of an interview with Rish Outfield and Big Anklevich of The Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine, we discuss getting involved in the podcasting community. Some show notes:
We’ve been recording with the MP3 Skype Recorder since Episode 4.
Go to Audio Drama Talk to find a variety of audio drama podcasts.
Consider the Podiobooks Community when looking for eager voices.
For those new to The Dunesteef, a good starting point would be their reading of A Place So Foreign by Cory Doctorow.
Finally, Bryan spoke at length about the “wall of sound”. He was talking primarily about the use of separate frequency ranges for overlapping sounds in order to avoid having them mask eachother, allowing them to both be loud and concurrently audible. Historically, the “wall of sound” involves simultaneous playing of the same sounds on multiple instruments, which is sort of the opposite. We’ll just have to have Dan on again sometime to clarify its use in audio fiction.
The theme music is by Hungry Lucy.
Bryan and Abbie talk with Big Anklevich and Rish Outfield of the Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine about what kind of stories work well in audio. To find the specific stories Bryan has done for them, see his bio. The Parsec Awards are briefly discussed, as well as some of the benefits of working with multiple tracks during production. As an extreme example, here’s one of Bryan’s favorite videos, a demonstration of Pro Tools, produced by Devin Townsend.
