Looking For Basquiat
In this piece of stereo sound design storytelling I made a nonfiction soundwalk in which I go searching for the grave of the painter Jean-Michel Basquiat.
In this sketch I use field recordings taken from the walk between my apartment and Greenwood Cemetery using the Sony-PCM M10. I recorded my piece of narration using a Shure Beta 57A. I incorporated panning, compression, eq, convolution reverb and the Waves Kramer tape delay into the presentation of these elements. On the master channel I used the Waves L1 Limiter plugin.
I also used some pieces of music I made, one with a xylophone. One uses re-pitched samples of an old soul song, and one uses my electric guitar run through a loop pedal before it gets crushed in a Distressor. Mixed in Ableton Live.
