The trek to the bottom of Bay Bridge pillar number 7 (westbound) starts down a ladder below a squeaky metal trap door, continues downwards 80 feet or so on narrow metal stairs sandwiched in a column tight enough to touch either side at once, and ends by passing through a crawl space in about 3 inches of salt water. Once there, in a round concrete chasm, sunk beneath the San Francisco Bay, there’s enough room to stand up, which is what Benny Burtt does. And in the dim light of a little flashlight, he pulls out a pistol. Casey Langfelder adjusts his recorder.

I still have impressed in my mind (and ears) when I followed the class of Electronic Music by prof. Lelio Camilleri, in which we learnt the basic concepts of Michel Chion’s audio vision just watching (and listening) some of the most memorable scenes from 2001: A Space Odyssey, with and without Sound. Good old times. Anyway I always felt strongly the need to have good examples for understanding and showing the role of audio in film and other fields. I could link many explanatory videos with this purpose, but for the most of times they are more or less commercial stuff, built by companies to make self-promotion and not education. From my daily sessions of crazy big data surfing I discovered Sound design… what’s that by french sound designer Alexis Jung (website | IMDb | SoundCloud ), a video created with education in mind. Alexis gave me a short explanation of this work via email: The video is mostly composed of the following four parts: Again from Alexis’ words: Gianpaolo D'Amico Follow Me: The simple education of Sound Design for Film The simple education of Sound Design for Film -

As I have mentioned over the last couple of days, last week someone rightly pointed out to me that the Practical Ed Tech Tips playlist on my YouTube channel was getting a bit too long (it has more than 200 videos in it). To rectify that problem I've created some smaller playlists consisting of videos that I've published on various topics within my YouTube channel. One of those smaller playlists features six web-based audio recording tools. The playlist is embedded below. Descriptions of each tool are included below the embedded playlist. Through TwistedWave you can create and edit spoken audio recordings from scratch. Mic Note is a free Chrome app that allows you to create voice recordings, text notes, and image-based notes on one concise notebook page. Vocaroo is a free service that you can use to create short audio recordings. AudioPal is a free service that anyone can use to create short audio messages to embed into blog posts.

2016/04 [Atlantic] 'The Black Tapes,' 'Lore,' and the Rise of the Horror Podcast Paul Bae discovered the devastating power of stories 17 years ago in his boss’s office. Then a high-school teacher in Vancouver, the current comedian and podcast producer was summoned by his principal, whose answering machine hosted a stream of irate complaints regarding one of his lessons. “She called me in, shaking her head, and told me she got some calls from parents about how their kids couldn’t sleep alone in their rooms that weekend,” Bae says. During an annual Halloween tradition called the Hour of Horror, Bae told a class of ninth graders the tale of a toilet with a dark history: If a brave soul ventured to the third-floor restroom and entered the middle of three stalls at exactly 3 p.m., the lights would flicker as “the shadow of a girl on a noose would swing over the stall.” Unfortunately, Bae wasn’t able to finish the story. The first horror stories, passed on in the oral tradition, served as a public warning system against the very real things that went bump in the night. 2016/04 [Atlantic] 'The Black Tapes,' 'Lore,' and the Rise of the Horror Podcast
2016/08 [wired] Fiction Podcasts Are Finally a Thing! Thank You, Sci-Fi and Horror 2016/08 [wired] Fiction Podcasts Are Finally a Thing! Thank You, Sci-Fi and Horror Dan Powell vanished in January 2016. Before he did, though, the audio archivist sent his friend Mark a set of tapes, chronicling his attempts to organize a series of audio interviews that had been recorded at a creepy apartment building 20 years earlier. The podcast chronicles each approaching footstep, each rat scurrying by—and each realization that dawns as Dan learns more about the sinister song that affected the lives of the building’s eccentric residents back in the 1990s. If you want to see what he saw, though, you’ll have to imagine it yourself: Dan is the fictional protagonist of Archive 81, a found-footage horror podcast. The real Dan Powell is also an audio archivist, although he denies any haunted recordings or horror experiences. Instead, he spends his days reviewing different sound effects for Soundsnap, an online commercial sound library. A Lack of Fiction Although radio dramas once populated the airwaves, fiction has never dominated the podcast charts.
2016/07 [Dailydot] 'Archive 81' and the rise of ‘soft-horror’ podcasting | The Daily Dot Podcasts that draw inspiration from the soft horror of '90s television are swarming earbuds with creeping dread—and we love it. Shows like The X Files and Twin Peaks helped to popularize the unsettling—where teases toward the paranormal, across lengthy story arcs, proved just as popular as outright horror. Flash-forward to today and we’re becoming overwhelmed with great podcasts drawing on this genre. Shows like Limetown and The Black Tapes have helped carve a new niche in the podcast market since their releases last year, and well-produced, spine-tingling stories have emerged as among our favorites. Take a look at the iTunes charts lately—pods such as Lore, Myths and Legends, and The NoSleep Podcast are surging. And horror podcasting wherein mysteries are presented as deadpan, real-life accounts continue to shake us to the bone 78 years after Orson Welles's War of the Worlds radio broadcast. The use of analog media in this genre of podcasting serves as an homage to classic horror. 2016/07 [Dailydot] 'Archive 81' and the rise of ‘soft-horror’ podcasting | The Daily Dot

Do Olympus’s latest recorders maintain the high quality and intuitive control of their earlier models? Usually, having very little to say about a product in a review is a problem, a clear sign of indifference on the part of the reviewer — but that’s not the case here. This review is short because, as with previous Olympus digital recorders, the LS12 and LS14 have been kept deliberately simple, with the focus being almost entirely on the quality of recording and the ease of use. And even those points I’ve pushed myself to list as a ‘con’ (I have to find some, it’s my job!) are facilities that are available elsewhere in the Olympus range if that’s what you’re looking for. The Olympus LS14 bears a striking physical similarity to the company’s earlier compact recorders and, like all of those, it’s also very intuitive in use. La Mode Operation is centred around four different modes, each of which is activated by twisting a knob at the bottom right: Configuration Tres Bien? Verdict Alternatives Olympus LS12 & LS14
