Where Do You Draw The Line?

November 8th, 2013 by Justin Thomas

UnknownIn the past week, the situation regarding Jonathan Martin, Richie Incognito, and the Miami Dolphins organization has gone from bad to…just plain weird.

The report came out earlier this week that Dolphins’ offensive lineman, Richie Incognito, had been harassing teammate Jonathan Martin with racist, overtly offensive, and threatening comments. The voicemail read as follows:

“Hey, wassup, you half (racial slur) piece of (expletive). I saw you on Twitter, you been training 10 weeks. I’ll (expletive) in your (expletive) mouth. I’m gonna slap your (expletive) mouth, I’m gonna slap your real mother across the face (laughter). (Expletive) you, you’re still a rookie. I’ll kill you.”

RadioEdu Week 07

November 8th, 2013 by Jonathan Prozzi

Concepts: Introduction to Sound Design, Effects Chaining, Talk Radio Flow 

As the students have been learning about effects and the parameters, we began by a review of what we’ve learned so far. The students were able to distinguish between Reverb, Delay, Echo, Chorus and Flangers and describe when a producer would want to use each effect. We then began a discussion about how the effects can be ‘chained’ together to create unique and interesting results. I explained that the order of effects in the rack matters, and asked what the students think would happen if I placed a Reverb device after an Echo in the chain. They correctly predicted that the Echoes created by that device would then feed into the Reverb. We noticed that when one begins to link effects together, some pretty unexpected and unique results happen. This led to a discussion of sound design, and how producers can create entirely new sounds that are only limited by their imagination.

I told the students that sound design is a crucial aspect of modern music development, and plays a central role in the music used in advertisements, music, films, and video games. I asked them for their definitions of what they thought sound design would be, and how sound design is the field where audio engineers create, manipulate, acquire and process audio components to match what they need for a project.

The proof of concept for this idea was to have the students begin with the same audio source file and to then chain effects in order to create their own unique sound files. The aim of this project was two-fold: first, it demonstrated the transformative power of multiple effects linked together, and secondly, it illustrated that the same audio file can be morphed into drastically different ‘new’ sounds. Each student acted as engineer and these are some of the examples of their first forays into sound design! This also provided an opportunity to review the importance of monitoring the Wet/Dry mix of effects, as this ratio can be used to further sculpt the sounds that are created by manipulating the amount of each effect on the source sound.

Review: Glass Animals EP – Glass Animals

November 6th, 2013 by Margaret Jokoh

thGlass Animals EP

Glass Animals

Grade: B+

Harvest Record’s recording artist, released their 4 track self titled EP, “Glass Animals.” The album has a haunting/spacey sound. The indie pop band makes use of synthesizers and artificial sounds to bring each songs to life. Dave Barley’s voice definitely keeps the listener captured and wanting to listen more and more. The album is very innovative and captures the essence of who Glass Animals are and is a great indicator of what’s to come from them in the future.
