Storm Outside the Ark Ariane St-Louis [Forest Fury]

Storm Outside the Ark is an electroacoustic piece composed of three movements: Animals, Dance, and Random Chaos. The first movement presents flies, birds, crickets, and wolves’ howling sounds over nature sounds (wind and rain). The second movement is a continuation of the first movement, where the cricket sounds become a main tempo and other rhythmic patterns are juxtaposed to it to create a Dance. Finally, the last movement is a representation of chaos, where sounds project unpredictability via unstable and jerky movements, as well as alternation of loud and quiet sounds, including abrupt silences. Sounds for this composition were created using the Doepfer analog modular synthesizer and they were processed using Amadeus Pro, Ableton Live 8, and Logic Pro 9. Processing techniques used for this piece were mainly pitch shifting, time stretching, and amplitude change. Effects such as EQ, filters, compression, delay, and reverb were also used for sound transformation.
