Tutorial Video on Piezoelectric microphones for posterity
Today I finished making a tutorial video about contact microphone construction. Besides the explanation of how to make a microphone, I tried to convey the idea that once you capture signal, you are only limited by your imagination in how you use it.
I made a little electronic-improvisation in Ableton using a few loops and a number of audio effects on our video clip. First, I matched the sound, as captured by the Sony recorder in the video, to the video from the point-and-shoot. I then loaded the clip into Ableton and did a brief sketch with four samples of the video.
