SSL40 IMMERSIVE INDUSTRIES
The First Industrial Revolution, which arised in the second half of the 18th century, meant a series of industrial and socioeconomical transformations and a turning point on sound: the end of silence.
Asturian sound editor and designer Oscar de Avila is the main recordist of this Library. He begins his career in the mid 90s as a music composer and sound editor for audiovisual media, carrying out numerous projects for several institutions and film production companies in the Principality of Asturias.
Founder and editor of the labobinasonora.net blog, which is a space of reference dedicated to the promotion of the ART of sound creation for the Spanish and Latin American film media through different professionals and work areas, and he is a usual collaborator on the radio programme “Noche tras Noche”, which is broadcast by RPA (Autonomous radio of the Principality of Asturias) in a section which is devoted to sound purpose in the cinema world.
This large compilation of registers formed by forced sounds, dark and electrical textures and industrial-themed backgrounds have been registered in 2019 at the most important and strategic areas (they had difficult access and permits were hard to get) around some industrial locations in the Principality of Asturias,Spain, which is my home place, as I was working for a documentary website on Asturian industrial historic heritage as the only responsible for sound design and editing (patrimoniuindustrial.com).
Through my work on this project, I had the chance of recording the unique resounding landscapes from the steelmaker and metallurgical factories, blast furnaces, coal and gold mines, coal-fired and hydraulics power stations, chemical plants and other industrial areas that are part of the Asturian industrial fabric and idiosyncrasy, and later, that would allow us to create the sound design and editing of all the audiovisual clips that were posted on the documentary website.
All the sounds that this collection is composed of have been obtained and recorded on an ambisonic format, which shows wonderful treatment possibilities and configuration when using them on the different phases of sound design and editing of any project that needs a resounding construction of industrial resounding atmospheres and backgrounds. Besides, all the recordings include metadata in English and Spanish, and they are compatible with software of sound library management like Soundminnner.
We have decoded all the First Order Ambisonic recordings with HarpeX plugin into 7.1.2 Dolby ATMOS bed configuration, using the top channel to create totally outstanding ambiences tracks ready to use!
