Synthesizers In The Movies

Synthesizers in the Movies,
is an hour-long documentary that looks at the history of synthesizers and electronic instruments being used on film soundtracks.

The video comes from a three-part BBC documentary series, Sound of Cinema: The Music That Changed The Movies. Composer Neil Brand hosts the series.

The documentary features some great examples of electronic and synthesized film scores. The highlights, though, are the composer interviews and the historic footage of them at work.

Video summary:

Synthesizers In The Movies

Neil tells the story of how the 1956 science fiction film Forbidden Planet ended up with a groundbreaking electronic score that blurred the line between music and sound effects, and explains why Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds has one of the most effective soundtracks of any of his films – despite having no music. He shows how electronic music crossed over from pop into cinema with Midnight Express and Chariots of Fire, while films like Apocalypse Now pioneered the concept of sound design – that sound effects could be used for storytelling and emotional impact.

Neil tracks down some of the key composers behind these innovations to talk about their work, such as Vangelis (Chariots of Fire, Blade Runner), Carter Burwell (Twilight, No Country for Old Men) and Clint Mansell (Requiem for a Dream, Moon).

SoundDesigners Podcast #50 May Mixed By Ocralab

Podcast 50 Ocralab

Hello All,

After some time without the podcast’s edition, we return back again with new rotations. No, the SD is not over, simply is a part-time phase due to the higher order of events.
May is the month that now begins, and nothing better than an inspiration for itself.
The artist that we present this month, is from Potenza, Italy, with Ocralab alter-ego. Besides working on dj format, he is also a producer within the Ambient / Dubtechno spectrum.
For us, developing a very successful work, marking with charisma in the sonic platform. No doubt that Ocralab can carry you to the other side. Nothing better than you to confirm. I leave you with our friend Rocco Biscione.
See you on the next time,
Love,

PREMONITION EP by Marex731 – SoundDesigners 006 is OUT NOW!

Premonition EP SD006_with text

A new release that was born in the mind of a great artist from Kiev, Ukraine.

The EP features some classic sounds: Ambient, Experimental, and inserts them over 4/4 rhythms. With its slow bpm, the sounds contained here express qualities of icy and dark atmosphere, but with an emotional force that causes us to lose ourselves and consider the super dimensions of life.

This work is presented with originality and simplicity, which is something that we appreciate here at SoundDesigners. We always focus on the implementation of ideas, and their transference after creation into concrete form and structure.
For us, this great EP has these values. I hope you enjoy.
Love,

Release date: 15.04.2015
Mastered by Jorge Caiado

You can grab it @ all major digital stores.

Some insights with…RA

Who don’t need some ideas to inspire, to keep moving and follow up the stairs?
Well, i need. See new things to re-think, to re-shape my performance with tendencies, with creativity and originality. The other artists that have structure help me to do that.
I hope that with you too.
I drop here some fresh videos of Resident Advisor covering some great artists.
Until next time,
Love,
