For an Experimental
Video project we were given a set of sounds that we could use. We
didn't have to use all of the sounds, but we couldn't use any sounds
other than what was provided. The thumping sound that you hear is
somebody bumping the table or a microphone in one of the clips, and the
other rhythmic sounds are from crackles and pops in the vinyl
recordings. The music tracks are usually slowed down or sped up, and
distorted in other ways as well.
The entire visual track was created in Final Cut Pro
with no media from outside sources. I didn't shoot any video or stills,
nor did I use a drawing program. My idea was that I gave the sounds to my computer and told it to make "art," and this is what it came up with. If you want to see what I used, you
can download the actual project file here. It
was created with version 5.0.4 of Final Cut Pro. The project file will
give you all of the visuals, but the audio files will be offline.
I realize that there is at least one semi-offensive word in the random title sequence. This isn't intentional; check the project file if you don't believe me.
