BBC Sound Effects to be used in Metropolis Ensemble Brownstone Concert

Pro Sound Effects is par­tic­i­pat­ing in a unique, location-specific music con­cert called Brown­stone, con­ceived by the New York City-based cham­ber orches­tra Metrop­o­lis Ensemble.

Atten­dees will stroll through a his­tor­i­cal brown­stone house in Brook­lyn, NY and lis­ten to live musi­cians scat­tered through­out the rooms.

An “elec­tronic sound­scape will fill halls and stair­ways cre­at­ing a rhyth­mic and col­or­ful sonic tapes­try, blend­ing with the var­i­ous instru­ments in dif­fer­ent ways depend­ing on your location…The source mate­r­ial for the elec­tronic music layer will be derived from the BBC Nature Sound Effects Library.  There are no syn­the­siz­ers or other sam­ples, only orig­i­nal recorded ani­mal sounds, trans­formed into music by pitch shift­ing, time stretch­ing, and other audio effects. “

Com­poser Jackub Ciupin­ski is the brain­child of this one-of-a-kind per­for­mance.  When he heard about the mas­sive, globe-trotting sound libary through mutual friends, he got cre­ative on us and pro­posed a col­lab­o­ra­tion.  We ended up pro­vid­ing select sounds from the BBC Sound Effects Library which we put out in coop­er­a­tion with the BBC Infor­ma­tion & Archives.

For tick­ets and other infor­ma­tion visit the Metropo­los Ensem­ble web­site.  The con­cert will be held on Octo­ber 28, 7:30PM.
