radio

BBH got me involved on this radio advert in order to seamlessly morph from Ben Pope‘s composition into the sounds of WW1.  I took the high note of the violin part and morphed it into the sound of a whistling bomb, and from that point onwards I edited the sound of rocket launches, machine guns and explosions to match the rhythm of Ben’s timpani parts that preceded it… that was the idea anyway.

I edited/compiled this radio advert from a script proposed by the advertising agency, BBH.  I was supplied with party conference speeches from the three main heads of uk government parties, Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Nick Clegg.  I then began the arduous task of picking through these hour long recordings looking for random words to make up the script… but even with all this material, some of the words had to be built from individual syllables in the edit to make the audio work.  Have a listen, I think the end result was a success, it got recognised with a monthly Aerial award too, which is nice…
