Sound Design: Elements of Nature
Today I would like to introduce you to a very creative technique to create sounds from elements of nature and day to day objects. I will share with you a few really cool videos.
The first one is from a japanese TV ad and what is interesting about this one is the way that the creators of this piece went all the way back to the very beginning of sound design to recreate a classic from J.S Bach.

The second video was created by Julian Smith from http://juliansmith.tv and it is called Techno Jeep. The shooting took 7 hours and all sounds are from a Jeep.
