Hi folks

I am a big fan of The Walking Dead, the zombie series that will begin again in the US in September. I'm also a big fan of the music that accompanies the action. It's a blend of guitars, electronic dance elements, metal and orchestral score by composer Bear McCreary.

McCreary also keeps an excellent blog about his creative process, which I am starting to explore. Thought the recording geeks on here would enjoy the link. For example check out his post on the WD Season 2 Finale here


I needed an instrumental color that would add an ominous presence, but not be distracting, so I went back to the "kazoo choir" I had explored a few episodes ago. i used the digitally altered sound of my voice singing through a kazoo to create thick chorales of ominous chords...

A kazoo choir?!? I just know I'm gonna try that one!

I remember when Star Wars was the neatest movie out and every one was gobsmacked by the cutting edge effects. When the foley artists hit a high tension tower support wire with a stick and produced the sound of the light sabres I was blown away! So everyday!


I also gotta go dig out a kazoo...

I thought kazoos could only play zip-piddy-doo-dah?
