Day 23 @ ITP: Video and Sound

SOUND WORK DEBRIEF

I think that overall our project went pretty well, and we worked well together and had fun, with a minimal amount of frustration and stress or disagreement. The only part that could have used more time was in the mixing I think, possibly also some compression or tweaking of the EQ on different sections, and we also definitely could have re-recorded the voiceover, and possibly recorded a few more of our own sounds (like for the "big city" in the Earth room, for example).

We did learn some tricks about editing in Audition, and about what microphones are best to use for different applications. In one meeting we tried to check out a Zoom recorder and none were available, so we learned also to do that as early as possible before the time we plan to work on a project. We would have also benefited from finding a quiet place to record the voiceover, and I am wondering where the best place would be to do that at NYU or in the Tisch building for group projects in the future. Amitabh and Kemi tried checking out a room upstairs but weren't able to— need to inquire if that was because we are not allowed or maybe they were booked... 

Edit: Also could have had a more simplified map! Maybe with no class numbers or excess info and just color blocks or something that could also double visually as a fictional space/imaginary space...
