I had another great opportunity to work with the wonderfully creative team at Giant Ant to be a part of a great video project for Slack. A computer software startup that has developed a cloud-based team collaboration tool for messaging and communication. My roles for this project included:
• Original Musical Score
• Sound Design
• Full Service Audio Post-Production
The creative brief called for an ambient electronic soundscape with upbeat rhythms and a technological theme. Using various synthesizers and drum machines and created a palette of sounds that fit the brief. I then used a variety of delays and reverbs to create a scattered and spatial array of those sounds to represent a pre-Slack work environment. I then incorporated some suction like reverse whooshes and dry sweeps which transform some of those those looser ambient sounds into a nice tight package which was meant to represent a work environment that has been streamlined and organized by using Slack.
