Our team(Me, Tawania, Veronica) collect the sounds of the doors in 721 Broadway for introducing 721 Broadway.
Door sounds link:
This is the idea that I had shared with our team. (We keep trying to build up this idea)
I thought our subject goal is an introduction to the people about 721 Broadway building through the doors. (It’s also following the footstep of every department’s student). So we focus on the elevator door, and I think we have to start at the front door of the building, the main entrance. And every transition to another floor always uses elevator sound. (Never using stairs)
So, start from
Entrance ->1F elevator ->2F->3F~~~>12F->and final step is basement(I thought most of the people who come to this building are students who have their own department floor. So I think to introduce the department is the first thing we have to do. Also, we record all the sound while we move to the other floor using the elevator, so at the last moment, there will be really long recording from 12F to Basement.
And each floor we record the room sound of each departments lobby plus our verbal introduction like, at the front door “We are now starting our journey to 721 Broadway building the Tisch School of The Arts, What’s behind this door?” And I want to show this really slowly and relax mood.
Our first record is September 6, Thursday.
When we met for the first time, we review the how to use Zoom recorder and after that went to exploration to 721 Broadway for checking what is in this building. We had started from the 12th floor, and it felt like we sneak around the building. The idea, “What’s behind the door” started from that. During the exploration, we lost in the building(seriously, the building is a maze!) and finally got out to the Gallatin School side. Unfortunately, we couldn’t record at that moment.
The hard part of collecting sounds was to get clean sounds and control the sensitivity of mic.
