Behind the scenes video of the recording session at Bradbury’s Coffee!
The concept for this score involved setting a foley/sound-design score > No melody & rhythm, but dissonant, atonal harmony, soundscapes & uncomfortable textures. We began by going into Bradbury’s Coffee (Madison, WI) after hours and recording every sound that triangular room was capable of. AJ was our sound-guide as we recorded: room noise, beams, ladders, stools, tables, washing machines, refrigerators, espresso machines, coffee grinders, various water drips, toilets, knives, and general kitchen-ware. With this Bradbury’s audio (recorded by Jon Brumbaugh) and other foley recorded at home, we’ve created roughly 100 Sound Libraries for MACBETH – each library housing up to 128 ten-octave, velocity/pressure sensitive Sample Instruments. The end result is about 2,300 custom-constructed sample instruments nested into one-channel (maximum of 16,384 instruments per channel). Controlling these sounds in real time with Ableton Live 8 through Akai APC 40 & Keith McMillen QuNeo midi controllers, we hope to instantaneously surprise, inspire, pace, & effect the actors performances with our live sound-experiments.
