This is kind of a videosong, since each screen you see are actually the sounds you hear, but let me recall you the 2 rules: 1. What you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice). 2. If you hear it, at some point you see it (no hidden sounds). For this one, I recorded each sound one by one, on video and audio. I used a Rode NT5 for the whole video, concerning the sound from my chest and my pumped cheeks, I used a stethoscope I built to suit the microphone. Concerning the mixing, I just played with the EQ and compression, and added some reverb, there's no more computer sound in there ;) Hope you'll enjoy! Read Less

In my videos I always loved searching new ways to produce sounds, in fact we are surrounded by so many sounds, it can be a bird whistling, the sound of the wind or even you playing drums with you fingers on a table.
 
I also thought it would be interesting to see what I could do with my body, since a majority of us only play with our voice or in claping in your hands.
And I've got to admit Diego Stocco is a great source of inspiration concerning new way to get sounds, so I decided to get a stethoscope on eBay and tried to see what I could get when I punched my chest with this great resonnant part we call ribcage.
 
So here's the stethoscope I used in the video with the Rode NT5 microphone with is a very precise and clean one, it was perfect for the job.
As I do for my other videos, I followed the videoSong rules, for those who aren't familiar with them, here it is :
 
1. What you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice).
2. If you hear it, at some point you see it (no hidden sounds).
 
I also had to record my video and the sound at the same time. Then I mixed up the whole song in Logic, I just play with compression, EQ and reverb, the aim for this video was to hear body sounds only, no computer instruments.
 
So here's how Final Cut looked like when I finished to copy past my videos to sync them up with the sound :
Then it took a few minutes to upload the video on YouTube (thank you countryside and your 512K...)
 
And here's the result!
