It's a cinematic orchestral piece that starts off uplifting then goes dark in a Tron / Inception sort of way. Lots of strings, brass and percussion with some synths and other sounds thrown in for good measure - even features a bit o' reversed Harpejji.
About a month ago I made a thread requesting voice clips with plans on compiling them into a song, a "Community Song" if you will. After a slow start, the thread eventually accumulated enough voice clips for me to really get to work.
A few weeks later, it's done and it's no longer just a song, it's a video too!
The Giant Bomb Community Song: The Video
The video is 1080p - so pick that option if you can!
Thanks to everyone who submitted a voice clip, even if your voice clip didn't get used. Also thanks to the Giant Bomb community as a whole, you're all awesome and you make this website an amusing place to be. :3
The new title from Frictional Games, the makers of Penumbra. So far, in the hour and a half I've played, they've done it again! :O
The videos are in 720p and around 30 minutes in duration. They're also commentated and edited for time, because that's how I roll. Oh and brightened in post so it's not just a black screen the whole time.
Back in 2001, a "Post Your Voice" thread emerged on one of the forums I frequented. Everyone would post a clip of their voice ranging from simple greetings to poetry readings and death metal growls. I thought it was a pretty amusing thread and ended up using the audio files in a music track made just for the forum.
I've been thinking about doing such a thing again. Basically, you post audio files and everyone else gasps in horror at you not sounding like what they expected you to sound like.
Then, if we end up with a lot of audio files in this thread, I'll see if I can mash them up into a music track. :)
If that sounds like a fun idea to you:
September 5th - NO MOAR!
No more voice clips are being accepted! If you're one of the few people who I messaged for voice clips and you can get it to me in the next few days, I'll see what I can do.
So, the track is basically done. Soon the video will also be done. :)
Post a recording of your voice.
That's it. Say hi, say something funny, sing, rap, scream, do a dramatic reading, beatbox, make sound effects or whatever you want to do; it doesn't matter, just as long as it's you and yours. That means no po-po-po-po-poker face and no stealing the voice of someone else, because that's witchcraft...and witchcraft is wrong.
MP3 ( converter) and WAV are the preferred file types.
Upload your file somewhere and post it here. If you don't have a file host, I suggest using Dropbox (gotta register, but it's awesome.), though sites like MediaFire are fine too.
