Sound Visualizations: Phase 4

During this project, I definitely learned a lot about how to use photoshop in a way I truthfully didn’t think was possible. Being able to play around with the animation function opened up a lot of possibilities for me. This project was definitely time-consuming (Even though it’s being handed in late) but at the same time, it was a lot of fun. There are a number of things that I know I should have done better. The inking could have been more defined, the animation itself could go along with the beat and have more variety when it comes to the movement. Figuring out what I wanted to do with the animation was the main problem I had and in the end, I couldn’t make it turn out exactly what I wanted to. This project has given me the chance to figure out more advanced animation techniques and inspired me to keep experimenting with photoshop on my free time. As usual, I need to work on managing my work time as well as being prepared for each of the coming projects.

Sound Visualizations: Phase 1

Calling To The Night(Link)

Hours took for project: 1

The song starts off with a flute intro with piano. It is smooth and flows together not slow, but not fast, it gives the air of an introduction to a memory. The sort behind this song is of a war veteran loosing what little he has left, and only having memory and tragedy. A woman beings to sing, it is soft and echos. The beginning of the song sounds like the start to a story of a memory.

The flute quiets and drums and trumpets begin to sound, making the song dramatic. The woman’s singing sounds more desperate as she sings,”calling into the night…fighting for what’s right…” The song continues on with the trumpets and drums rising and falling with violin in the background giving a touch of sadness to the war-like sounds of the drums and trumpets. The song quiets towards the end and the flute is heard one last time with the woman singing in a hushed voice that slowly fades away.
