Sound Design: Need a bit of inspiration?
Then check out the sound design of Troels’ Music Made with Bees:
I wanted to see how far I could take the recordings of bees into the realm of music. The bee produces about 200-230 wing flaps pr. second, which is enough to generate a nice, rich sounding buzz. I recorded a bunch of bee sounds and manipulated them through a variety of tools (including timefreezers, delays, filters, glitch modules etc). I then decided to add some more human elements to it (vocals, guitars, grooves etc) and wrapped it up by adding full symphony orchestra and choirs on it during the end.
Besides the bee sounds – the majority of samples are coming from the tonehammer.com sample catalog.
Hope you enjoy it. Einstein once predicted that the human race would survive no more then 4 years after the extinction of bees due to their keystone role in the entire ecosystem. So peace out to all the bees and bumbles.
Best – Troels
Think you could trade a synth for some bees?
