Thread To Break The Forum Silence

smalltalk

#581

I thought this was neat. It occurred to me that others here might also appreciate it.


#582

Indeed, as a sound designer AND beekeeper, right up my alley! Thanks. One could imagine an array of mics providing a localisation possibility as well.


#583

are those things related? i mean explicitly related, like I like the sound of bees, so got into sound design?


#584

No…professional sound designer, amateur bee keeper. Moved from 1400 acres with 1200 sheep to 1/8th acre so needed to downsize farming activity…so I’ve got 50,000 bees! (actually thinking about it probably closer to 80,000, but they’re trickier to count than sheep :smiley:)


#585

well, i like the sound of bees, anyway

:slight_smile:


#586

You have to get up closer to photograph 'em as well :smiley:.

I’ll try to grab you some sound as well today.


#587

I’ll try to grab you some sound as well today.

that sounds great!! if you make it downloadable i’ll shout over it!

Cheers.


#588

Analogue!

I was in London this past week at Air Studios and Abbey Road for a film score recording. I wish I had been able to ping the Air church for an IR. It sounds SO GOOD. But… it’s forbidden!


#589

So jealous!

And I guess that is even with full dampening (by the orientation of the white panels)?

What does 1444/4 indicate?


#590

Surely that’s to let the orchestra know what time signature they’re in?


#591

The song is just one measure who’s length varies dynamically while you play it! :laughing:


#592

Haha! Yeah that’s the protools meter counter. The film was literally done in two logic sessions so the measures went into the many thousands over 2 hours - but the sheet music only had the last 3 digits printed.


#593

Yep - there’s baffles sitting on the upper levels and a massive cloud hanging above the players that’s adjustable (you can barely see it in the shot so here’s a better one: )


#594

Wow, what a beautiful space! Thanks for sharing the pics Neil.


#595

This is a lovely shot! Do you prefer beekeeping to sheepherding?


#596

Saw some of this on social media and it looks like this was an incredible week! Congrats, Neil.


#597

It was fast and furious!

We flew to England Tuesday night (from Toronto), had a day off on Wednesday because we were hyper-prepared, then Thursday it was a 15-hour session of strings-ww-harp, brass and then piano), popped into Abbey on Friday to hear preliminary comps and start of mixing and we were on a plane back at 3pm! Ahhh!!!


#598

Thanks. That one’s called Elise :wink: Love the bees, don’t love the 1/8th acre!

Haven’t lived in a town for 15 years so it’s something of an adjustment not being in the bush. Moved from having my nearest neighbour 5 miles away to having a whole mob of them 5 feet away!

Sheep farming hard work, hot and dusty (as I think has been referenced earlier in this thread) so beekeeping certainly physically easier…but I’m a fourth generation sheep farmer so it’s in my blood.


#599

Excellent! I’m sure it was welcome and felt good. Being hyper-prepared seldom does not pay off IMO :slight_smile:


#600

That’s awesome–I’ve been a city dweller for most of my life, and the thought of 1400 acres of land sounds incredible.
