Rig - Urban Rain

This is a rainy electroacoustic soundscape using no watery samples at all, just random sounds from my apartment. I created this for my electroacoustic portfolio that I had to submit to a university I was applying for, and I got in!

The criteria was to basically showcase your sound-manipulation skillz, and making water out of spoons, chairs, and paper requires some of those skillz. Here's what I used:

Low rumble at the beginning - a paper bag with the lows enhanced
Car passing by - guitar string
Hard drops - metal spoon hitting a plate
Thunder - the same paper bag
Other drops - spoon hitting a glass, my doorchain rattling

All the sounds were recorded with my mp3 player around my apartment, then heavily processed in Fl Studio. :D


Decent sound/fx

Hmm ok so this was something differant and thats not a bad thing, this is actually perfect "SOUND/FX" for any flash with the need for these types of resources, so props to you on that aspect of stuff, the sounds do get better and louder but i think you need to make it louder alot earlier on in the track not so late, but regardless this was a nice sound/fx

So this was a cool Sound/fx i think you need to make it louder alot earlier on in the track not so late, anyways nice work.


You could do sound effects for a big-budget movie.

Love it.

It almost sounds like rain, very resourceful.
And I love the pattern, it's exactly like regular rainfall:
Drizzle -> Rain -> Shower -> Rain -> Drizzle -> Distant

Nice job!

I happened to find this piece as it stormed outside. I find rain to be one of the most beautiful things in nature, and you captured it all in man-made materials. Very ironic and very beautiful.
