Frozen Waterfall

from Meta Landscapes by Homeless Balloon



One of my most interesting projects was to compose original music for the Radio Fantasy Series "Order and Chaos" ("Orden og Kaos") that my friend Arnfinn Sørensen (Christensen) wrote and produced for radio (NRK) back in 1998. I have found many unused sounds and musical pieces from that project, but I had a hard time converting the original audio files from their old SoundDesigner format that SoundTools (which later became ProTools) used at that time. However, there is one piece of Software which is still reading and importing SoundDesigner II audio files: MetaSynth! I have now picked up these audio files and created "Frozen Waterfall". I have tried to illustrate how a waterfall freezing to ice can sound. The purpose is not to create a realistic sound, but to let the listener feel the power of the water and the drama that unfolds when a waterfall is freezing to ice. I have used recordings of both running water, splashes and waterfalls, and I have combined them with heavy drum sounds and screaming metal pitched down or stretched (in the Effects Room). From my work with sound design through the years, I have learned that if I want a really heavy sound, I should stack several similar sounds on top of each other. - (Read more about this track in the 25 pages pdf Booklet that comes with the album download!)
