Abstract

I have assembled a collection of my sonic art projects and combined them into a sound trailer. The piece is showcasing my abilities as a sound artist and what I have learned and created in the media arts program. My goal as a sonic artist is to become a sound designer for a film production company. The first piece is a sonic portrait that paints an audio picture of my internal process of interacting with my favorite films, which have had a huge impact on my life. The challenge was to create a sound piece that described this without any visuals to rely on. The second piece is from my first semester at the University of Montana. I chose a music video by the “Lonely Island”, and re-articulated the sonic environment by creating a new and unique sonic pallet. Using Adobe Premiere Pro video editing software I re-edited the visuals, and using Logic Pro 9 audio software, I created the final audio mix which included dialogue, ambient sound, foley, and effects. The third piece expanded my abilities by introducing a programing language into the creation of sonic art. Programming allows me to create real time interactive sonic art experiences. This project challenged me to think differently about sound and opened up a new world of sonic possibilities. The last piece is part of a project I have been working on for a while. Similar to my 2nd piece, I removed all the sound from the music video “ I bet my Life” by Imagine Dragons and re-articulated the sonic environment. With so many projects to create and learn from, I continue to explore the numerous possibilities in sound advancements from designing a sound studio to exploring different kinds of audio software programs.
