The Soundtrack

What is a soundtrack

A soundtrack can be recorded music accompanying and synchronized to the images of a motion picture, book, television program or video game; a commercially released soundtrack album of music as featured in the soundtrack of a film or TV show; or the physical area of a filmthat contains the synchronized recorded sound.

Trippy Chippy soundtrack

We decided to emphasise a lot on the soundtrack within our piece, this is mainly because of the title:

“Trippy Chippy’

Everything within our piece is composed and arranged  by my self Sunny with ideas from Harmeet, as we both had a artistic vision of the video and also the audio of the track,

The whole soundtrack was programmed live as the video was being made.

We start out with a vocal I programmed saying “Trippy Chippy” layered with a very heavy bass sound, to catch the user attention,

The vocal saying Trippy Chippy echo’s throughout the whole piece , I used a special  effect called “Delay which is an audio effect which records an input signal to an audio storage medium, and then plays it back after a period of time. The delayed signal may either be played back multiple times, or played back into the recording again, to create the sound of a repeating, decaying echo.

Also if you listen through out the whole sound track, actual sounds have been used from the original footage we shot, but with these sound I manipulated them to sound very experimental and trippy such as when I am washing my hands there is a water sound cut up in to rhythm this is taken from a actual footage.

The software, which was used to make this soundtrack, is Digital Audio Workstation software called FL Studio 9:

It features a fully automatable workflow based on a pattern-based music sequencer. The environment includesMIDI support and incorporates a number of features for editing, mixing, recording, and mastering audio. Completed songs or clips may be exported to Microsoft WAV, MP3, and the OGG Vorbis format using various high-quality sampling interpolation algorithms.
