Composer and sound designer Diego Stocco is always listening the world in creative ways and finding interesting sounds in unexpected places.
Today, he shared this short video – taken from a series of in-depth sound design videos – that demonstrates his ‘finger mic’ technique. By taping mics to his hand, he can use his hand as a tool for listening to and recording sound in new ways.
From the video summary:
Diego, like a hi-tech, sonic surgeon, microscopically inserts microphones into places where sounds are born to capture their very audio essence. Watch and see how these close-up, molecular stereo miking techniques and acoustic processing strategies reveal audio landscapes and percussion sounds that cannot be produced any other way.
