From The Intern’s Desk: Sound Tracking for PULSE Video


Here in week 7 of my internship at Berklee PULSE, I’ve spent most of the last few days placing music examples in our upcoming History of Strings video. The breadth of examples mentioned in the video makes the job of syncing sound clips pretty interesting, and often times kind of funny.

It is pretty rare in my (short) career producing and arranging music that I sample Shostakovitch, Charles Mingus and Dr. Dre within a minute or two of each other.

The video does a great job of integrating relevant, yet cross-cultural examples of the use of string instruments, and I get to choose and arrange how they fit into the sound track.

I even got to make a sweet remix of Debussy’s Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp. Once the groundwork is laid I hand it off to Elizabeth who is in charge of audio for the video team for final mixing and sound design.
