Air Pocket (2000)1:56Payam MontazamiJTTP 2001
The sounds used for this piece were either found on royalty free sample CD’ s, recorded live, or synthesized in Sound Forge. I wanted to give the piece an underwater like feel. I increased the lows and mids on some of the sounds to give the piece a muddy sound; I also added some highs to simulate sounds that you might hear if you were inside a submarine. I used a series of percussions to simulate machinery that might be found on a sub. All of the sounds were heavily processed, using Sound Forge and DirectX plugins. I used Vegas Pro to set up my timelines and mixed the piece in six tracks. I exported every track separately and imported them in Samplitude. I used Samplitude for all of the panning effects, the final volume control, the equalization, and for 3D audio effects.
