This is a personal work I did for the purpose of practicing my Sound Design skills.
While searching for short soundless animations I found "Kapotojas" and I thought it was a good opportunity for me to create, for the first time, the sound of an explosion (which I found very challenging to do
).
 
The author of the animation is Jurgis Tamulis.
 
The creative process
 
1st. Record sounds for the "ax" movement with my Rode NT5. I used a metal plate to create the sound I wanted by bowing it.
2nd. Search for birds and footsteps sounds in the Sound Bible FX (by Ric Viers). 
3rd. The BIG challenge: the creation of the explosion. For this I used Logic Pro 9 ES2 synthesizer to create "white noise", which was then edited to create the sound of the explosion.

 
Recording Metal Plate sfx.
Software/Hardware

- Logic Pro 9 
- Rode NT5
- Edirol by Roland UA-4fx
- AKG K271 MkII
- Metal Plate

A special "thank-you" to Jorge Costa for suggesting me the use of white noise for the creation of the explosion.

And,
thank you for listening to my project! :) Feel free to comment!
