City Slicker jeabzz DIY : A Lomographic Anthem

16

I’ve always liked the click of a shutter, the buzz of a flash and all the other little sounds our analog cameras produce. So I decided to make a little song with them!

As sound designer, an important part of my job is to record sounds and to work with them. I can transform them or just work on their own texture to obtain the results I want. We are all amazed by the shots we obtain by using our lomography cameras. But what about theirs sounds? I decided to record several sounds from different cameras to create a “lomographic” sound Bank.

So I chose several cameras that have really interesting sounds.

First, let me introduce to you the dear members of my lomographic orchestra:

Lubitel 2, Diana F+, Nikon FM2, Lomography Spinner, Supersampler, “Mini Diana”http://shop.lomography.com/diana-mini, Diana Flash, Lomokino, Fed 5B

I recorded many sounds which can be produced by those cameras. Then I obtained a Sound Bank with more than 100 sounds. (For the connoisseur, I recorded every sound in high quality, at 96 khz and 24 bits…) Once I managed to create this sound bank, I arrived at the funny part of the production. Just to play with every sound and to create a song by using all these elements.

To do this I used my Daw (digital audio workstation) as a sequencer. Actually, you can find lots of software and some freeware to create songs on your computer. First I managed to create a rhythmic section by using only the sounds from my cameras. Some sounds were processed to obtain kind of special effects that I used to do some funny transitions etc…

Finally, after creating several parts of the song by using only my lomographic sounds, I added a baseline and one melody to add some groove to the song ;D You can watch the video where I explain quickly the way to produce this song and also, enjoy the song!

I did this for fun and I hope liked listening to it. If you are interested in creating your own lomographic anthem but you don’t have microphones or other stuff to record your own sounds, just send me a message and I’ll share with you my lomographic sound bank ! ;D

Btw, here is a link to the song in High Quality.

Have fun folks! ;)
