Andy Martin Launches Kickstarter Campaign On A Sound Effect Blog For A Year Long Sound Effects Project
Over on the A Sound Effect blog experienced sound designer and recordist Andy Martin has been making big plans: He wants to capture the sounds of the Pacific Northwest in the US in a way it’s never been done before, and he’s planning on spending a year doing it. To make the project a reality, he’s just launched a Kickstarter campaign, and below he explains the idea and approach for this big project – and how you can help make it happen.
The Northwest Soundscapes Project is a year-long series of field recordings from the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. The series is divided into two libraries: Natural Location Open Air Impulse Responses and Natural Soundscapes of the Northwest. The Pacific Northwest, or PNW, is an area that covers roughly just North of San Francisco to the Canadian border, from the ocean coast to the Eastern edges of Washington and Oregon. If you’ve ever heard the term “Cascadia”, it’s somewhat synonymous with the PNW. The focus for this project will be primarily in the states of Washington and north-central Oregon.
Rather than just being “another ambience library”, the Natural Soundscapes collection has three goals:
- Environmental variety,
- Length — up to 30 minute long individual recordings,
- Comprehensiveness — multiple times of day at every location, covering at least dawn, mid-day, and dusk.
