Stereo Sound Design project : "Looking for Basquiat"



 In this piece of stereo sound design storytelling I made a nonfiction soundwalk in which I go searching for the grave of the painter Jean-Michel Basquiat.  

  In this sketch I use field recordings taken from the walk between my apartment and Greenwood Cemetery using the Sony-PCM M10.   I recorded my piece of narration using a Shure Beta 57A.   I incorporated panning, compression, eq, convolution reverb and the Waves Kramer tape delay into the presentation of these elements.  On the master channel I used the Waves L1 Limiter plugin.

  I also used some pieces of music I made, one with a xylophone.  One uses re-pitched samples of an old soul song, and one uses my electric guitar run through a loop pedal before it gets crushed in a Distressor.  Mixed in Ableton Live.
