Disquiet Junto 0622 Know the Shadow


The Disquiet Junto assignment asks "How do you depict a shadow in sound?"

It prompted a few thoughts for me, starting with the line that The Shadow knows the evil that lurks in hearts of men.

Then I reflected on the way shadow blocks light and thought it'd be interested if the sounds came from the edges, so I explored panning and tilting and compression artefacts.

Finally I realised that I had an example of shadowboxing if I used the two takes I'd recorded on the drums.
